And so another TrotCon has come and gone, and like usual it was awesome. Panels were great, cosplays were great, the guests were hilarious, and artist's acres weren't that hot considering how many people were in there.

Both my biggest gripe (aside from the occasional lack of A/C) and an incredibly heartwarming moment actually happened in traffic outside the convention though. Part of my group had a breakdown on the way to Columbus, and while they managed to re-attach the broken hose, they had lost their coolant. While they were standing around thinking about who to call, Carousel Accessories stopped, asked if they were going to the convention, and lent them some spare coolant they happened to be carrying. Thank you Carousel Accessories, we all really appreciated it! Meanwhile, I forgot that I'm not a local anymore, and managed to get lost twice despite the assistance of both a GPS and a police officer.

The serious cosplays are always amazing to see, but what was also fun was that this year the group I was had fun with it too. Between Friday and Saturday we had Shim & Sham (genderbent Flim & Flam), two Elusives (genderbent Rarity), three OCs, a (genderbent) Octavia, and a (genderbent) Zecora.

Merch wise I spent ALL of the bits I brought with me (my wallet contains a printout of a "100 Bit Celestial Reserve note" and a coupon for vitamin water right now), but hey, I only get to shop fan merch in person once a year. The tradition of comissioning Alex Heberling to draw the character I'm cosplaying continues, as does not being able to control my fanfillying within 3 meters of Pixelkitties' booth. Might do another custom once my wallet recovers, as well as a flask if anypony caught that vendor's name or website.

And I've got things to do, so pictures soon. (Not Soon(TM), actual soon.) And they're up!

And apparently I can't get out of character for Elusive. I'm already planning next season's outfits! (I think I can do Fluttershy/Butterscotch without having to wear nearly as many layers, and I have most of a Twilight that was supposed to happen Sunday and didn't...)

Lets see... I'm a college student studying engineering, a former Boy Scout (and current outdoorsman when I get the time), and ... Oh yea... I'm seriously addicted to My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. I'm pretty on and off with contributing, due to the lack of time in college (and hit-or-miss inspiration in general), so expect updates to be infrequent, and probably pretty varied. Still, I've got a to-do list projects that I'll get to uploading (well.. completing first... scratch that, /starting/ first) when I get around to it.

Three big interests (excluding ponies) are cars, computers, and scouting, and the last one made a much nicer cutie mark when ponifying myself for an OC. There was more to it than that, but that gets long and personal...

The /signature I use sometimes is my old sig from somewhere, and is the one thing that I keep in common between most of my pony and non-pony accounts.

I can't draw (yet!), so I use a lot of vectors, and I make sure to credit the original source as often as I can. By the nature of fan art, most of it also involves content owned by various companies. Any incorrect or missing citations are an error on my part and I'll gladly fix them/take them down if they're brought to my attention. I don't want any trouble.

I'm wayyyy too connected, so e-mail (eaglehooves[at]gmail.com), Steam ("Lord Elusive"), Reddit ("eaglehooves"), and probably anywhere else an "Eaglehooves" turns up.

I've actually got my diploma and a full time position way out in the sticks now. I'll let you know if I'm up that way - I owe a bunch of people a visit.
