  1. From the album: Knight Knight's arty tarties

    With a sister like Rarity, who did they expect her to dress as? A fun banner I made for a website for the month of October.

  2. @Lyipheoryia It was nightmare night. Lake was handing out candies to little ponies and a very hyper pinkie pie that liked candies. after some of the liveliness died down a little Lake walked to her books. "I hope nopony doesnt do anything stupid this nightmare night. Nightmare night is known for evil spirits." Her osprey mystic caws. "Yes yes Mystic I will get your favorite fishies fluttershy offered when we moved in just calm down."
  3. A thick green fog rolled across a hill near Ponyville. Soon a figure emerged dressed in a black robe with a black pointy hat. Although a convincing costume, one could tell it was Zecora. The Zebra at first didn't know what to dress as for Nightmare Night, but then she remembered how many ponies referred to her as an Evil Enchantress. So with some green makeup and the right clothes, Zecora looked like a wicked witch from a pony tale! "Gather around all who dare, for tonight I have a creepy story to share! And if you are lucky to survive my tale of woe, then perhaps you can continue this little show. For if you have a scary tale to tell, then hope you will share it as well!"

    Cosplay ahoy!

    From the album: OC Art

    Got in a discussion with someone the other day, about hats, Nightmare Night, and other things. It all culminated into a picture of Inkbrand dressed up as Snow Villiers, one of my favorite FF characters. This will probably be his Nightmare Night costume since he dressed up as a pirate last year - though, not sure what he'll call it IC. I guess a bandit outfit, maybe? Snow Villiers © Square Enix
  5. I'm sure she won't need to see a psychiatrist after this, right? It's Halloween, you know what that means! Nightmare Night returns! This time the spookiest night of the year will focus around the most timid of ponies! No, not Marble Pie... Fluttershy! No doubt our pink maned pegasus is not much of a fan of the holiday, so how will she handle it when her friends want her to participate? Will Fluttershy be able to keep herself from drinking apple cider until she falls asleep to forget the fright? What adorable costumes will everypony dress in? Will anypony have a candy coma? Tune in to find out! The episode airs Saturday 11:30 AM EST on October 31st! This thread is dedicated to discussing the episode before, during, and afterwards. As the thread is now open it may indeed contain spoilers. I ask that potential spoilers talked about or shown before the episode airs stay within the spoiler tags please, after the episode you no longer have to use the spoiler tags, but warning, if you haven't seen the episode yet after it airs, this thread no doubt will have all sorts of spoilers in reviews, images, etc. So tread at your own risk.

  7. An ominous wind blows gently over Equestria for it is Nightmare Night and all through the land most have laid their heads to rest for the night. However some still stir and wander as the witching hour draws near and the moon of Princess Luna show full above illuminating the land in an erie glow. Among them is a unicorn by the name Lunar Relic. A wing spell active he flew threw the skies near supersonic speeds paniced. Behind him a vampire gave chace, Blood Fang was it's name as he flew through the air he recalled the conversation he held only moments earlier... "Are you Lunar Relic?" The black vampire asks "Who's asking?" Lunar responds turning to see the vampire and his look turned to fright "Y-you...I know that look...you're the one who" "Killed your family...yes. It has been a long time Lunar Relic many years in fact. You know I don't like ponies getting away...nothing personal but..." The vampire chuckles leaping at the unicorn who quickly using his magic sprouted a pair of pegasus wings and flew off. Angered the vampire flew after him And the brough him to where he was now. Flying with an alteration spell grating him pegasus wings or the time being and running for his life. However Lunar knew his time was short he wished there was some pony to help him...he was no match for a Vampire alone that was. "Oh Celestia...somepony helpe me" he preys "It's all over Lunar! I am going to catch you eventually and then...silence you forever!" Blood Fang laughs sinsiterly as fear washes over Lunar's heart as he closes his eyes, tears of fear forming within them.
  8. From the album: Mane 6 and characters

    Princess Luna for Nightmare Night everybody! To tell the truth, Im only so-so with this pic. I started it over a week ago so that I would have enough time to get it in for NightMare Night, but lost a few days because of a stupid as heck schedule and on top of that, I now have a cold of some sort which is ruining my day since being sick and awesome holidays do not mix in my book. (I also havent gotten sick in years!) So I wanted to get this in before the 31st, and despite a very clouded mind and an achy head, I pretty much just sped through it so I could be done. xD Anywho, enough of my whining, here's Princess Luna on a obligatory broomstick on a obligatory night and full moon background. Im going back to bed. Happy Nightmare Night!

  9. From the album: Regular Cast Pics

    The reveal picture for the big surprise for Canterlot's Nightmare Night Event of 2013. Reposted for people in case they just want a copy. It was an interesting challenge to redo a large portion of the image in this manner. I could have made them "pure" Changelings instead of retaining their pony disguises somewhat, but I felt they would be too similar in that regard. Of all of the characters, I found making a Gummy Changeling the most amusing.

  10. Hola. So it's my favorite time of year, and that means spooky threads! For this one I thought I'd use the idea of vamponies (similar to Flutterbat) starting an outbreak in Trottingham. Once infected by the illness, those who succumb become rather... well batty. If bites are too violent a transmission method, we could always do dander inhalation or something. My areion needs a debut thread, so I figured why not the month of ghosties? Please note that this would have very little focus on combat, more survival terror while searching for a cure. Anyone interested?
  11. The Nightmare Night festival is well under way when out of the Everfree Forest comes... Spiders the size of ponies! "Spiders Everypony run!" could be heard as ponies could be heard fleeing to the safety of their homes.. Lunar Relic walks into Ponyville returning from one of his research trips to see the abandoned festival "What the heck happened here?" he asks himself walking into the town square where he sees a pony pop his or her head out of their window. "Don't go out there!" they whisper "There are spiders from the Everfree Forest that will eat you!" he warn Lunar who of course thought the pony was crazy! "There is no such thing as giant spiders that will eat you" Lunar chuckles walking to the grounds to see one of the large spiders he then screams and runs to his shop and slams the door. "Wait!" the spider yells "We don't... *sigh* all we want to do is join in..." "okay" Lunar says panting "I was wrong there are huge spiders from The Everfree Forest that want to eat ponies!" Lunar sulks down hoping that they could not see him through the windows of his shop. 'Just don't move Lunar' he says to himself hoping they would move on...
  12. Sign up thread for a Nightmare Night RP, The Nightmare Night festival is well under way when out of the Everfree Forest comes... Spiders the size of ponies! "Spiders Everypony run!" could be heard as ponies could be heard fleeing to the safety of their homes. More in RP thread want in? just post a comment on this!
  13. From the album: Regular Cast Pics

    Seemed appropriate given that tomorrow is Halloween. The image itself was a "quickie"; done between regular projects in a short run of insomnia. *Edit* Expanded the image a little so her mane isn't cropped to the left and fixed the tip of her horn. IF anyone wants a copy sans background to use for whatever, just ask!

    The initial picture for Canterlot's Nightmare Night Event of 2013. Reposted for people in case they just want a copy. Of all the costumes here, Rarity's was the one I was most happy with.

  15. Nightmare Night is large event in Ponyville every year. Ponies dress up in costumes, play games, and get scared, all for the fun of it. Almost the entire town participates. Almost... However, in one little cottage on the edge of the town, there are never any lights or decorations on this night. If anypony were to knock, no pony would answer, or would get the door slammed on their nose. Most foals knew to avoid the cottage; they'd get no candy there. But this year, something was different. Lights shown from the windows. The door was open, and the smells of something cooking drifted out. In fact, there was even a pumpkin, seemingly carved with an inexperienced hoof, lit from within with a candle. The most unusual thing, however, was that the cottage's owner was actually sitting outside, a bowl of candy near at hoof. Fluttershy looked a bit uncomfortable in her costume, a cute little white bunny, but the timid pegasus was there, facing her fears. A hoof-lettered sign hung near the carved pumpkin, stating "Nightmare Night Animal Performance Tonight!"
  16. *Reminder: Please be sure you've read the event description first! As one of the special staff sponsored event threads, you are allowed only one character in this thread and they shouldn't be in any other sponsored threads!* A single mare stood in the long shadow by Carousel Boutique, looking out over the small makeshift stage that had been set up just outside it and decorated with ominously lit carved pumpkins and fake pony skeletons. She grinned quietly a moment and then threw back her mane, which fluttered back in the early evening breeze. She was ready for a most exciting time. The show she had planned would surely be one Ponyville would not be forgetting anytime soon.She glanced over at the sign just to the side of the stage, which read in glittery letters: "Rarity's Fabulous and Frightful Fashions: Nightmare Night Costume Show and Contest". It was perfect. Ponies young and old would be coming this night to partake in this costume contest, showing off the seasonal wares they had put their all into crafting and she would judge each of them and present ribbons to those that best caught her fashion-savvy eye. She took a moment to glance at the ribbons sitting on her judge's table, to see if all was in order. She had many prepared for the event. They were important. She had special first, second and third place ribbons prepared for the three best costumes, but she had a large number of participation ribbons, so as no one who entered the contest would leave without. It was only fair after all, especially with so many foals likely to drop by. Smirking quietly at the thought, she took a few moments to ensure her own costume was flawless. The golden collar, crown and shoes she had selected matched her white coat perfectly. With a pair of false wings she had to say she looked uncannily like Princess Celestia herself, especially since her mane had been colored especially to match the princess--though of course with the unicorn's usual mane style still. Satisfied with her appearance and satisfied with her preparations she decided it was finally time. She cantered ahead, toward the teeming Nightmare Night crowds to make her announcement. "All right now, my darlings, listen up and gather round! Princess Rarity decrees that it is finally time for this most fabulous costume contest to begin! Anypony and everypony is absolutely free to join in, just come this way!" she shouted out, loudly and playfully ending on an excited giggle. She could hardly wait to see her show become a success. ​
  17. Saddlesore Saddlesore normally would stay at home with his door locked and his windows sealed up during Nightmare Night. The grumpy blue Earth stallion really wasn't a huge fan of social functions, especially those with lots of screaming fillies and colts! But THIS Nightmare Night was going to be different. A certain unicorn lady acquaintance of his was coming! Saddlesore had first met Asteria Stillheart, a delivery mare whom he had taken out to supper. Though Asteria seemed very emotionless, she still seemed to enjoy his company, one of very few ponies in all of Equestria who actually want to be with him. So, dressed in a black vampony costume, complete with fake fangs, Saddlesore waited at the gate of the Nightmare Night area. Pacing back and forth, he was looking forward to seeing his lady friend once again. What costume would she wear? Would she actually enjoy the many activities of Nightmare Night?
  18. Nightmare Night! It was finally here! Pinkie Pie huffed and puffed, putting the finishing touches on Sugarcube "Coroner". She wore a costume this year of...her pet! She was an alligator. To add to the cuteness, she decided to dress Gummy as herself. The toothless alligator wasn't terribly pleased about being dressed as a pink pony. Nevertheless, he clung to the green-scaled tail of her costume. Pinkie had gone all-out, turning her home into a complete, 100% totally, really super-duper scary haunted bakery! The normally warm, striped candles that dotted the bakery roof were replaced with black candles, with flickering green flames. The windows were frosted over with red glaze. The door sat ajar, with misty smoke pluming onto the sidewalk. In the window, a cauldron bubbled and boiled. Haunted treats lined the pastry case and shelves, as fake bats and pony skeletons shaped from old bread dough hung from the ceiling. One of the ovens had a gooey half-baked mass of cake batter spilling out, shaped into a spooky, drooling mouth with candy corn teeth. However, one thing in particular was extra-extra-extra spooky: the door to the Sugarcube Coroner basement was hinged open, inviting anypony daring enough to go downstairs into the bakery cellar. She hammered a wooden sign in front of the bakery, slathered thickly with sanguine-red paint: Sugarcube Coroner: Haunted Bakery! Enter if you DAAAAAARE!
  19. Ok, here's the story. Flim and Flam, in an effort to regain goodwill among the residents of Ponyville, have decided to set up an apple bobbing booth on the premises of the Night Mare Night celebration. Participating characters (OC and Cast) are welcome to come up and bob for an apple using any method they desire. One at a time, post your character grabbing up an apple. In that same post, pick a number from 1 to 30 that hasn't been picked already. The number you select will determine the prize that character will receive! Prizes vary from very nice Nightmare Moon figurines, to bags of candy, to stuffed animals and other such things. THREE of the numbers if selected will receive an extra special prize for your character! And, there are a few numbers, if selected, give your character... only the apple they plucked from the water. Foals, fillies, colts and even adults are welcome to try their luck at the apple bobbing booth! Even though I'd like to see contestants post one at a time to get their apples, each RPer can have the maximum number of TWO characters in this thread. This means, two of your characters may come in line and play the game! Obviously, some prizes will be better than others, and feel free to have your character act disappointed or even angry if they get a 'not so Grand' prize. None of the prizes will be dangerous or destructive. Remember, Flim and Flam (who will be responding IN character to each participant) are doing this to earn goodwill and favor with residents of the land of Equestria. They'll do their usual fast talking (maybe even a song or two) as they interact with your characters. So, without any further ado.... "Come one, come all, come see! What Flim and Flam have for thee!" Flim sings out. "Nightmare Night is here! A time for fun and cheer!" sings Flam. "It's apple bobbing time! Join the fun, it's not a crime!" "We have lots of prizes too! Step right up and see what YOU CAN DO!!!!" (Numbers already selected: 4, 13, 20, 25, 29 -- one Grand Prize Number has been selected, 2 remain)
  20. I'll start right off by saying that I really do appreciate the staff trying to come up with something really cool. I know from my own RP experience that mega-events can be a lot of fun, both playing and running them. However, there have been a couple... shall we say, issues I've noticed in this year's Nightmare Night event. I'm not as frustrated as I was two days ago, when I posted a somewhat uncalled-for long and ranty comment on QuickLime's blog, so hopefully I can be somewhat fairer in evaluating what it was that didn't quite go right, at least in my opinion. The first thing, I will admit, is personal and subjective, but the fact is, I don't come to this site for Role Plays in that style. I have other sites where I go for RP's that are more adventurous or combative; Canterlot for me is a place for more relaxing, character-driven slice of life stuff. Mind, over the top sometimes, as befits its cartoon origins, but still in that mindset. That's important, you see, because the first thing you have to decide when writing a story is what kind of story you're going to write, sad, exciting, funny, etc. Everything else is designed around that. It's no different in Role Playing, or collective storytelling. All my characters were designed for the normal, WOE-style stuff; I hadn't had much opportunity to really think through what their capabilities in an invasion situation were, which made it difficult for me, and I think for quite a few others in the same boat, to strike a balance between being unreasonably effective and being a load. Of course, that brings me to the second point. Not everyone came into this event with the same expectations on what kind of story they wanted to write, and even in the framework of adventure stories, there are still different ways of setting things up. To get personal again, all the combat or adventure RP's I've been in had a basic assumption that all characters had been brought together to make a more-or-less equal contribution to a goal. Whether or not they got it was, in fact, dependent on their actions. Both they and their enemies went "all out," knowing the other would. Now, when we suddenly switched from Slice-of-life to Adventure, my entire mindset switched, too, even though I hadn't designed my characters for it, and neither had most of my fellows, for that matter. That wasn't true in all cases, however, leading to point number 3. There was a huge imbalance in the capabilities of each character versus the changelings. My older schoolcolt, for example, would probably not fare as well as a trained REA officer. But, I would feel that I was letting down the team if I didn't contribute, and I also would feel frustrated that others weren't either, even if it made in-character sense that they wouldn't. Again, this was because I was used to the idea that not making an effort would actually mean losing (even though that probably doesn't hold true here). As far as the actual fighting went, I still can't help but feel that it got to be a real mess at times. You generally had at least 10 players on the Pony side, and one staff member on the changeling side, with only one exception (The Invasion of Ponyville! thread). Now, this generally meant trouble in terms of god-moding, since a pony player's round might consist of between 15-20 posts, and even if a player didn't write in an automatic success, another might base their post off the assumption that they had. Naturally, the changeling player would think this unfair, since the players could overwhelm them in one round, so they had to write massive posts explaining why all of that didn't work. Of course, the pony players (this one at any rate) would think this unfair, because they put in multiple posts to accomplish nothing. This is generally why, in freeform combat RP's, a player cap and posting order really help smooth things along. Generally, a ratio of 5:1 of good guys to bad guys is about the maximum imbalance I would allow on the site I administer, just to keep arguments from arising. Again, though, this all assumes my own framework of combat/adventure RP's, and not every player when in with them. Some played the thing for laughs, others were content to explore the psychological breakdowns of pastel equines under stress until rescued by an inevitable Deus ex Machina. And you know what? All of those responses are perfectly valid. I realize that, and I respect that. But like I said before, the type of story you want to write is the first decision to make, and when you're sharing a thread with those who have a different type their writing, things can get frustrating. A lot of this, I think, could have been avoided if the staff had opened some OOC threads a few days before the actual invasion. Sure, it might have ruined the surprise, but it would have given them a chance to lay out what sort of story they wanted to tell, and give us all a chance to discuss with each other what sort of things we ourselves wanted to do with the event. I can speak for my own experience that the difference between "You cheap cheater!" and "Well Played, sir!" is one OOC thread or exchange of PM's. I think by now we're kind of over an awkward hump, and starting to figure out just what sort of stories these threads are actually supposed to be, and I'm able to have my fun with them again. I just think that with a little more forethought... well, what the heck, I'll say it: "THE FUN COULD HAVE BEEN DOUBLED!"

    If this gets allowed despite a particular character drawn on here, I'll be real surprised. Anyway, here's Freddy and Alta trick or treating! And clearly Alta (green pony) is obviously doing something right for her to be getting so much candy. Alta is interesting because she's not quite a pony. To those familar with Invader Zim (or at least old enough to remember), she's a ponified version of the alien race "Irken", hence those pink things coming out of her sides. And I think we all know who Freddy is, so Im just leaving it at that. Although I havent been able to come up with something myself for Nightmare Night due to just being too busy, Im glad I was able to at least have something ready. Ah well. Enjoy and Happy NightMare Night!

  23. Nightmare Night descends upon Ponyville again! Each year under the pale light of the Moon, ponies dress up in fun disguises to collect sugary sweets and appease the hunger of the wrathful Nightmare Moon. As every foal is told, if she catches someone out in the open with no treats to spare, Nightmare Moon will gobble them right up!!! For those who have outgrown the old pony tales but still crave fun or fright on Nightmare Night, they are in luck! This celebration is the one time of year where ponies can engage in all sorts of nocturnal delights: moonlight dancing, apple bobbing, and even Luna-approved spider tossing. Don’t forget the costume contests too; the rewards for those with the best outfits can be quite… delicious. And for those who dare to get scared, there’s sure to be a “haunted” attraction or two lying about. But never fear; the terrors inflicted on Nightmare Night are but harmless dangers only to excite. Everypony who revels in the glow of the night sky has nothing to fear of what lurks in the shadows. .....For now. ------------------------ Nightmare Night is open! This is a joint World of Equestria and Canterlot Chronicles event, meaning that any characters that have been accepted to play in those two Roleplay sections are allowed to participate! Users are free to create their own RP threads during Nightmare Night, but note the threads marked as Sponsored by the Event Staff. A lovely surprise is in store for those participating in Sponsored Threads, but we ask for this special occasion that a character can be inserted into one Sponsored Thread only, and that you only use one character within a Sponsored Thread. Otherwise, please limit yourself to two characters per user-created thread. Characters can appear in more than one user-created thread.

  25. Webs and statues adorn the dimly lit cave near Ponyville, creating one of the scariest areas in Nightmare Night history. Ponies in Changeling costumes hide in shadowy crevices, ready to pounce on anypony that passes by. After all, what would Nightmare Night be without a few heart pounding scares? Even with the recent threat to Equestria, everypony has been assured that there will be no real Changelings. But the decorations look so lifelike...
