Description: Princess Celestia’s School for Gifted Unicorns is famous across Equestria as a center of academic excellence. Only the best and brightest unicorns are offered places, selected by their academic merit, magical ability and passion for study. To make the admissions process as fair and reliable as possible, all candidates are given three exams by different teams of examiners, who then meet in private to decide which students are most deserving of a place.

Do you think bathing is treated as a private affair in Equestria? Or is it not that big a deal since no one wears any clothing anyway?
REGARDLESS, WE HAVE ART!
Get it all below.

While not the most show accurate on proportions and style, these guys get an A for effort in terms of variety. A store called Hello Anime in in Schaumburg, Illinois has 31 different characters displayed, with even some lower key ones like Cherry Jubillee and Soarin making an appearance. A few of them have already been purchased by the person that sent the picture in, so they may only have a very limited stock of each.
Head on down below the break for the full list! As for the brand, they look to be following that Japanese lineup that creeps into claw machines, but we don't yet have an exact.

Going ELECTRONIC. We haven't had a good old fashioned instrumental post in a while. This was the fandom in 2013! There was so much!
Head on down below the break to check them both out.

I hear Picarto is having problems today so there might not be as many streams as expected, but we'll try anyway! Also, if you're having problems as an artist using Picarto, check here for a possible fix.
Also, I'm still looking for a new header for this feature. Calpony is getting a cramp from holding that pose each week. If you draw and would like to help, send in your header to [email protected]
As always with this event, if you want to partake in the madness make sure to send an email to me at [email protected] with your name, the type of art you'll be doing, a gallery link (optional) a link to your livestream and a banner (also optional). Make sure that your stream follows our content guidelines as laid out under our submit tab and also make sure to that you can be ready to stream at our standard time of 4pm EST / 1pm PST on Saturday. Also, if you participated in this week's stream event please send me the art you made so I can include it in next week's Livestream Drawfriend.
Another one of those 14 dollar tee sites has a bunch of Five Nights at Freddies themed ponies available. As always, expect the temporary thing, they tend to do that! Have some links:

It's been almost two years since Enterplay released their first set of the super-rare autograph cards. Those cards are still incredibly hard to come by, but are still a neat little way for fans to get autographs from the stars of the show.
Well, it looks like Enterplay is doing it again! Ingrid Nilson—VA for Maud Pie—has revealed on her Twitter account that she's signed a whole bunch of them!
No details have been released yet as to when/how/where these cards are going to be released, but it's official Maud Pie merch as signed by her VA.
A few months ago, we posted about these knockoff ponies that Disney is producing, complete with your typical "marketed toward little girls" commercial. They appear to have hit store shelves, with a Fisher Price tag none the less. If G4 ever dies, I guess we have a fallback that isn't Filly Funtasia?
If it ever gets to that point, I give you all permission to leave forever.

For those that don't follow the world of space news, SpaceX recently launched the CRS-5 rocket bound for the International Space Station (video of that below!). Apparently someone working on the circuit boards for an item heading up decided to sneak a silkscreen Celestia for the trip. The image above is part of the many pieces of electronics included, adorned with glorious sunbutt.
Celestia will be making her permanent home on a device mounted outside of the ISS!
Go celebrate with the rocket launch below, along with more images.
Thanks to Jason for the heads up!
