Holiday Matsuri over!

Trying to update anything after a con is always quite difficult, so here's a little blurb for now!  

Holiday Matsuri has come and gone and we had a great time at it!  Thanks to everyone that stopped by and chatted with us over the weekend as well as those who purchased something while doing so!  The weekend was very exciting as we saw old friend and made a bunch of new ones!  Hope to see everyone in the not so distant future~

Christmas and the New Year are almost upon us so the updates may be a little scattered (or not there at all!) until after the new year!  So if we don't post anything till then we hope everyone has a great holiday season and a happy New Year!

And on that note here's a picture from J.R. showing a great use of the Pinkie Pie Tofu for the holiday season!

My Little Pony Lanyard Sets and Phone Cases

I've been extremely pleased with how well the MLP lanyards have been doing in my store, and I realized this morning that I never made a listing for a full set like I have with my necklaces, so I set one up:

I also have put up some more of my phone cases:

Alrighty, now I'm back to work! Preparing for finals this week and for selling in the artist alley at Holiday Matsuri next weekend! o___o

Applejack and Twilight!

Two more ponies have been upgraded and they're looking just as cute as the first two!

The best pony Applejack!  

Twilight Sparkle

Found out beyond reading books Twilight enjoys watching football!

They turned out super cute (I really like Applejack but I may be biased X3).  Like the last two these will be available on ebay along with a Tofu!  Please check it out as these will be the last ones I'm selling online till at least after the new year!

Now back to some hardcore crafting for me!  Holiday Matsuri is just around the corner along with some big holidays and out of state trips so I will be super busy these next couple weeks!  Make sure to check out the rest of the blog if this is your first time visiting!

Happy Customers!

We really love photos of our happy customers here at The Tofustache and I just got in some new ones today!  Katlin ordered a Pinkie Pie Tofu hanger the other day and left some kind words and cute pictures for us!
"I just got my Pinkie Pie cube in and she is ADORABLE! Very good quality and I can't wait to hang her from my rear view mirror! Thanks again and for the extra buttons, that's "20% cooler" than anything I've bought online yet :) "
I can't tell which one is cuter!!

Katlin's God daughter loved Pinkie Pie so much 
she wanted one too (well either Dashie or Fluttershy)!

Thanks a ton Katlin I'm glad you and your God daughter enjoyed her, it's customers like you that make us enjoy what we do so much!!!

Upgraded MLP plushies!

I'm a huge fan of doll eyes on plushies but after posting a some of my MLP:FiM plushies a couple people suggested I try to make some more show accurate eyes for them, so I did!  I only have pictures of Rainbow Dash and Rarity right now but I'll probably make some more in the coming weeks (between the holidays and getting ready for Holiday Matsuri I'm a bit swamped)!

Rainbow Dash!


Much like the Tofus the eyes are constructed out of layers of felt.  Had a lot of fun trying to figure out how to make them and I totally love how they turned out!   It was actually pretty funny when I was trying to make them as I started making the eyes like Rainbow Dash has first but I was testing them on Rarity.  They didn't look quite right until I popped them on Dashy!   I realized at that point they were looking weird cause Rarity needed those sultry eyes!

If anyone is interested in buying them I got em up on ebay at the moment!  I may sell them at a set price later down the road on etsy but for now I'm doing one complete round of each pony on ebay with matching Tofus to try and fund a new sewing machine and camera!  Feel free to check em out!

New Pics for Left 4 Dead and Portal Phone Cases!

Finally got some nice pics of my Valve cases (Left 4 Dead and Portal). I also got pics of all my other phone cases, plus all my jewelry. I will hopefully find some time to resize them and put them up on Etsy, but I'm super busy right now with schoolwork, my part-time job and my hoodie orders! @_@

Stay tuned for new additions to the shop, and feel free to email me directly with any questions at monostash@gmail.com!

Tofus as tree ornaments

Someone mentioned something I never thought of on my tumblr the other day... the Tofu hangers are perfect as Christmas ornaments!  So I snapped a picture of the MLP Tofus on my cute Christmas tree, and I'd have to say they do look pretty good as ornaments!  

Soooo cute!

The Mane six are finally done!

Just finished up the rest of the Mane six MLP:FiM Tofus the other day!  I really like how they came out (especially Rarity cause I've been dreading making her since day one!)




And if you hadn't seen the other three!

Happy Customers from EXPcon!

There's nothing better than photos of happy customers with your merchandise (it's also an excuse for me to take photos of merchandise I forgot to photograph before a show ^_~)!  So here's two photos I took over the weekend at EXPcon of some happy customers!

Deadpool showing off his new Creeper Dice

An adorable child with a crocheted  Pokeball hat by the Tofumom!

I should really remember to grab more customer shots while at cons!  So if you buy something at one of our future events and wish to be featured on the blog just tell me to get to photo taking!  

Sketched Up Some New Product Ideas!

Had some downtime at school the other day so I sketched and colored up some new product ideas~ I want to try to make some stuff Winter themed since the cold weather is coming in, and some other pony ideas (plushes, aprons, headbands and vests). Hopefully I can find time to make everything that I want to! @_@

Custom Shadowbolts Hoodie

Got an order for a My Little Pony Shadowbolts hoodie. Sketched up a quick concept and hastily colored it in Photoshop. I'm pretty excited about making this, I really like the design I came up with!

If you'd like to order your own MLP hoodie, check out my Etsy store: http://www.etsy.com/shop/monostash/ or email me directly at monostash@gmail.com


An Unexpected Surprise!

Ordered some tights and socks for Cassie and I for our Vocaloid Matryoshka costumes, and I was pleased to see a little something extra added to our invoice when I got them in the mail! X3

We're back from EXPcon and what a fun (and tiring) weekend it was!  It was great to see everyone there and thank you so much if you bought something!  There was however some bad things that happened at the convention.  Someone ended up taking our luggage we use to carry booth supplies in Saturday night.  It really sucks but luckily we should be able to recover from it!

There might be a few more updates from EXPcon coming up soon from us, but for now this is just the we're still recovering from con-plague and should post something update!

As for the next convention, do come and see us at Holiday Matsuri, December 16-18 in Orlando, Florida!

My Little Pony Hoodies Preview

I took a picture of my newest creation, My Little Pony hoodie! I made one for me, and three for friends for AWA. I will be making these by custom order only, so customers can choose exactly which size and which pony they’d like and I won’t have to worry about making a wide variety of sizes and styles. :D

Feel free to contact me at monostash@gmail.com if you're interested in ordering a hoodie~

I’m really pleased with these, will hopefully have better pics soon!

Camera broke!

I was going to take some photos of the new pony plushies I made but apparently my camera is broken!  First the sewing machine now my camera (don't even want to think about my wipers dying in the rainstorm last week)! What will be next!?

Guess I will go back to preparing more Tofus for EXPcon!

So here's a picture of some dogs surfing to keep you all satisfied until my camera situation in dealt with!!

Made a poni

Decided I wanted to try to make some My Little Pony plushies and this is what  happened!


She's not quite the final final draft, but she was looking so cute I decided to finish her up!  Hopefully I'll be able to get some done of all the ponies before Expcon (excpet maybe Rarity, I'm still thinking super hard about how to do her hair with yarn)!  

Also on the Tofutastic front, I've just finished up some Doctor Who themed earrings that will be sold at the next con and etsy as soon as I get it set all up.  

Tardis-ish and Dalek-ish earrings!

I love these so much (I wear them around a lot!) cause they're super light!  I'll def be making more of these in the future!

That's about all from me today, going to start working on some new ponies now!
