UK-based artist Kayleigh O’Connor (previously featured here) first started using false nails simply to conceal the grisly consequences of her nail biting habit, but it didn’t take long for those false nails to evolve into an awesome, ever-changing art project. She changes up her nails a few times a week and draws inspiration from a wealth of pop culture sources, particularly TV shows and movies. She’s got a whole set of Dr. Who-inspired manicures and we love that one of her Futurama-inspired treatments included a Brain slug.
One of our favourite things about artist Chris Ryniak (previously featured here) is that, no matter what else he’s up to - such as designing amazing toys and sculpting wonderfully strange characters for art shows - he still makes time to draw new creatures on a regular basis. Earlier this month, as one of his morning scribbles, Chris created Sparkle Pony Magic. The following week he presented her once again, this time in glorious colour. It was after that that something awesome happened:
Chris was contacted by a fan of his art who loved Sparkle Pony Magic so very much that she was hoping to have the image laminated onto her new prosthetic leg.
"She picked it up today, and walked unassisted for the first time in at least seven months! Its things like this that help ME to keep motivated and doing what I do. Not just for my own love of creating, but the knowledge that my art brings a little joy in another person’s life. Have an awesome Day!"

We’ve featured amazingly large plush ponies previously, but these awesome 6-foot-tall custom princess ponies are even bigger! They’re the work of plush artist Xion Munro, aka DeviantArtist ManeStreetPlush, the Manehattan Mare. She also makes regular 5-foot-tall ponies, 3-foot fillies and colts, 1-foot-tall foals, and pony-related clothing. We can already hear the Bronies swooning.
This dazzling custom Twilight Guitar was handmade by Vladislav, aka DeviantArtist GhostOfWar909, for a Russian Brony Convention called the Filly Feathers Festival. Made of alder, mahogany and rosewood, it also features star-shaped control knobs, which resemble Twilight’s cutie mark.
Because of its overall awesomeness, we’re going to assume that an electric guitar modeled after Princess Twilight Sparkle can also be used to cast spells and make the surrounding air glitter when played.
Where impossible cuteness meets indescribable evil you’ll find this tentacular creature. Her name is Little Maddie and she’s an awesome combination of Cthulhu and My Little Pony designed by Asheville, NC-based company Bigshot Toyworks.
These are concept images for a project currently in development for a series of animation shorts and toys with the tagline “Friendship is madness”. Little Maddie may not be real yet, but we’re already making room for her on our toy shelf.

When a balloon artist is also a brony it’s only a matter of time before awesome My Little Pony cosplay happens. Such is the case with Bruce Carr, aka NoOrdinaryBalloonMan, who wove balloons together to create this awesome Princess Twilight Sparkle costume.

ShinodaGE, self-proclaimed “Brony Graffiti Artist” in Argentina (previously featured here) teamed up with German photographer M99moron to create this awesome Pinkie Pie Portal. Looking through the German side shows a warm beach in Argentina, while looking through the Argentinian side shows a snowy German landscape.
“We’ve only met a couple weeks back, when I saw one of ShinodaGE’s rad street paintings featured on EQD. I was really excited to hear about another brony street artist. I contacted him and we got along really well, and after a short while I told him about this idea.
Long story short, we exchanged some photos, photoshopped some images, printed those posters and ta-da! A gateway was created for Pinkie to go trough. Now she could enjoy the warmth of the summer of the southern hemisphere and take a break from the winter of the north.
Fun fact: The posters were pasted and the photos taken on the same day. The pictures in the portals behind pinkie are what one would actually see if the portals were real.”
What an awesome project!
“4 days of 8-10 hours of work, 5.5m of minky and a couple wounds later Pinkie is now complete. She stands at about 55” (4.5ft) from her hooves to the hightest part of her mane and weighs a whooping 15lbs. As pictured, she can stand unaided thanks to some cushioning foam inside of her (to learn how I did it check this journal: [link]). Her eyes and cutie mark are satin stitched instead of machine embroidered because they were too big for my embroidery machine. The lines and details in her mane were also satin stitched.”
And just in case you’re wondering (because we’ll admit we were) this prodigious Pinkie Pie cannot support a person’s weight (that would required a solid internal frame). She’s meant for cuddling, not riding.

Feast your eyes on these awesome sets of pop culture-themed Easter Eggs. So many eggs! Each and every one of these eggs was hand-painted by Rene Lopez, aka DeviantARTist Rene-L.
The best part is, this isn’t even all of them. In fact we’ve barely scratched the surface. Head over to Rene’s DeviantART gallery to view them all.
