Huntress Lyra of the Wild? I can dig it. Why is it so easy to make ponies look badass?
Another edition of pony crafts coming your way everyone! Check it all after the break.

I've seen a few people say our polls aren't working for them on Twitter, which would make sense considering new season traffic has jumped but votes have decreased. If you are one of these people, let me know below!
It looks like Castle - Mane-ia was the big one. I'm definitely looking forward to six and four a bunch though.
Anyway, next poll: Which duo in Castle Mane-ia worked the best together? Hit it up on the sidebar!
Enterplay has released details on their upcoming premiere events for the 7th of December. Each location was hand picked based on the areas with larger meetup groups/MLP communities, so there will probably be loads of people to play with.
The Entry fee (~$20 based on which store is running it) into said events nets you:
- Theme Deck (either Rainbow Dash or Twilight Sparkle)
- 2 Booster Packs
- Pre-release String Bag
- Special Rainbow Dash Foil Card (#P1)
- Plus, a chance to win great prizes, like the Nightmare Moon Troublemaker foil card (#P7), Premium Playmats, Boosters, and more!
And the locations:
Dallas (Venue Pending)
Their Facebook page will have updates throughout the week.
I can't believe we've actually compiled up 1000 of these things. I also can't believe we have had enough art to actually fill almost 1000 days in a row. I have a feeling pony is the only one out there that has ever done something that groundbreaking.
Art has always been one of my favorite parts of the fandom. It's fun to collect, shows a side of these characters that can't be portrayed in the show, and is generally appealing to look at. Nothing rocks more than Twilight Sparkle in full mage armor sundering worlds with an epic spell or Fluttershy's cottage stylized to look like one of those million dollar oil paintings. You just can't get that anywhere else. Add hoofboots, socks, sweaters, new races, and the plethora of art styles portraying each to the mix, and you got a piece of the ponyverse that is hard to ignore.
Now go get some ponies! I was going to do a best of the best over the years thing, but I think that might be more fun as an archeology post. We should probably get those going again soon!
Garden of shadows
So how did you all like that episode guys? I watched it with my sis and it was awesome so I hope that it spurs on some really creative thoughts and got you fired up to watch some streams or do some art yourself!
This game seriously has the most satisfying clip clop sound ever. I've been hoping for a 3D pony game forever now, so go support the crap out of this one and make it thrive to completion!
Build video below the break!
Doctor Whoof is seriously going to need his own series soon. If they ever need scripts for it, we have two more radio plays dedicated to the guy, with two different groups heading them.
Get them below!
1.) The Incredible Escapades of Doctor and Dopey: Episode 1
2.) Doctor Whooves The Great:[Episode 1] Wish Upon a Box
The way this guy syncs ponies up to beats is just addicting or something. I've rewatched that Very Hot one like 30 times.
Anyway, have another below!
Update: And get some Scepterlicious too!
So, that happened! It's looking like season 4 is going to be pretty active on the Twitterverse. Today was quieted a bit thanks to the leak earlier in the week, but that didn't stop a bunch of the show staff from joking around via Twitter.
If you want to join in, drop a #MLPseason4 on whatever you tweet. Don't be awful like me and forget to add it!
And three in particular that are worth reading up on for their shenanigans today:
Mike "The Boss" Vogel
Josh "Omg Disney would freak at that Twitter Background" Haber
Meghan "I can't believe she just said that!" McCarthy
Now go #MLPseason4 on Twitter!
Update: And some fun stuff below the break courtesy of Preston. I'm cool with this.
If ever there was a reason to use a Castlevania-themed header image on EQD, this is it.
Guys, the much-hyped, much-leaked, 22-minute ball of awesome dreamed up by the talented Josh Haber is finally here! For those of us who have been actively dodging spoilers, we can finally relax and re-follow all our friends on Twitter.
Speaking of Twitter, Mr. Haber is planning a live Tweet-A-Long of the episode! Check out his tweets on his timeline here: @joshhaber
How about some Cheerilee for tonight? Her sunny disposition is enough to put a smile on anyone's face.
Ready for the episode tomorrow everyone? I know I sure am! See you all in the morning when a new flood of pony stuff hits the net.
Another week means another message from Pinkie Pie before the new episode! Now that things are in full swing it is time to vote for this year's guests so make sure to participate if you can.

By now you've probably seen a number of views on Princess Twilight Sparkle, but if you're like myself, you can't seem to get sick of new perspectives on the episode. I've picked out a few more of the best reviews and analyses to be submitted to EQD this week, so let's send this episode off once and for all! Check out the last three reviews after the break.
A few more last minute Black Friday deals have invaded the internet. Toywiz is running a 29% off sale on the new Blindbag set (or pre-orders for the blindbag set). So far these are only available at Hot Topic, and they seem to be rampin up the price a bit. And In other news, the metallic POP! toys are the full 30%, both found at the top of this page or in a bundle.
Everything else in the pony section has dropped by 20% off using the code 20cooler.
We have a couple of news pieces regarding the new MLP writer Josh Haber. This week's episode marks his big debut to the series Castle Mania, and the guys over at Brony Time did an interview with him. On top of this, he will be live-tweeting the episode tomorrow morning, similar to what Meghan did for the season opener. You should probably go follow him now to prepare for it.
Cosplay! We don't get awhole lot of it, so these posts seem to only come out once a month.
I actually have a question for you guys before you head on down there to check it all out, specifically on Fursuits. I've asked loads of people for feedback on these (primarily at Nightmare Nights a few weeks ago), and it seems to be 50/50. Would you consider them to be cosplay? Or should they go elsewhere? Hit the comments up!

Talk about an adventure-packed November! First we had the Season 4 premiere show how Equestria's safety depends on a tree in a cave. Then we have this week's episode, which looks to expand upon what we saw last week (no spoilers, please!). The timing of this week's Royal Canterlot Library feature of NorsePony is impeccable, reading into the same vein of dark world-building the show seems to be pursuing lately.
The EqD pre-readers may not have been quoted in this week's feature, but rest assured their involvement with the RCL is still ongoing. Head on over here to read the interview, or just hop beneath the break.
The numbers are in everyone and it looks like the premiere of pony did quite well this past weekend! Pony managed to score the top two ranks for the week on the Hub, scoring 733k viewers for part 1 of the premiere and 709k for part two. Great numbers for something that isn't a movie on the Hub, especially considering how many people we know watched the show on streams this past weekend.
Check out the top ten below and more stats at the website Son of the Bronx.
Here is a comparison with a press release from the Hub last year.
Epic orchestral, Epic war/national music (so different orchestral!), and a bit of Country with Feather and Neighsayer. Go listen to stuff!
1.) Radiarc - Lower the Moon
2.) Evening Star - A United Land
3.) Neighsayer - Closer (feat. Feather)
