While I was at Bronycon this year, Scarlet Nightmare asked me if I’d be willing to do a cosplay photoshoot for her. To which, I was more than happy to oblige. These are my favorite pictures from that shoot.
Do you think I should open myself up for bookings at conventions in the future? After how well this one went, it’s certainly a tempting idea.
Jazz Notes ( @ask-the-out-buck-pony ) is pretty smol compared to an average sized pony, and average sized ponies are pretty smol compared to Konza. That means Jazz is just the right size to qualify for zeebu rides any time she wants, and since these rides can be paid for in hugs she’ll always have the exact fare!
(Finally getting things settled to where I’m not too stressed to work on stuff again. Been wanting to do this one for a while; scenes like this are why it’s always fun to have an oversized character. :) )
Tonight at 8:30 PM EST, I’ll be livestreaming with @drwolf001 to talk about my gofundme campaign. We’re also going to give advice on how you can avoid ending up in similar situations yourself and how you can get out of it too if you’re already in one.
Imagine Xenophon or Alexander the Great or really any ancient horse person learning about modern horse drawn carriages. I don’t mean pleasure carriages like
I mean like Marathon Carriages like
Now a days most people hate modern carriages because they think their ugly. They want “beautiful” antique carriages made out of wood and wicker. But I think ancient horse people would love them. They would lose their minds to see a modern carriage!
Hinged closed loop shafts! Your carriage is now an ATV! GO ANYWHERE! NO ROADS NEEDED! GO PONY! GO!
BRAKES! YOU CAN GO DOWN STEEPER HILLS FASTER BECAUSE YOU CAN STOP YOUR CARRIAGE FROM RUNNING YOUR PONY OVER!!!
Shocks- you can literally take your carriage down small drops and not be thrown out of the carriage! Also see that whole NO ROADS thing above. OR JUST RUN OVER YOUR DEAD ENEMIES WITHOUT FEAR!
THE FRONT AXLE CAN TURN INDEPENDENT OF THE REAR AXLE! So much less fishtailing, such tighter turns! GO TEARING AROUND A CORNER IN 5 m INSTEAD OF 10! GET THAT LAST ASSHOLE SOLDIER THAT YOU MISSED ON THE FIRST PASS
Not to even mention the addition of Navigators! OMG they would love navigators! A navigator is basically a human acting as a counterweight that allows you to go EVEN FASTER through our already insane tight turns without flipping the carriage over!
KICKING STRAPS! Bucking ponies can’t get a leg over the shaft and break it!
They would fucking love CDE marathons.
Like it’s not obvious from that picture but those people are going 35 mph based on how hard that navigator is leaning out. Like 10, 20 meter turns around hard wooden barriers at 20-35 mph! Because it’s a race. But it isn’t any horse race, it’s a horse race with a course like this
And I can’t imagine how excited ancient horse people would be to see this, to see modern carriages and all the amazing things they can do.
