When you get down to it, this is what carnivals are all about: failure. But it’s fun failure, so it’s okay. You play against impossible odds, you spend a fortune trying to win a $2 toy, and you cannot wait to do it again next year.

I am amused that Skydancer is a carny.

Aww, I love how she has the ring in her mouth.

And I kinda chuckled at Skydancer being a carny. >>

I must hop on the OMG Skydancer bandwagon. She was my second pony, after Firefly. :D

I LOVE Firefly!
I had a huge stuffed Firefly (that's the pink pegasus with the bright blue hair, right?) and I loved it loved it loved it. :D

To be honest, I never understood why so many people say carnivals are failures. Everytime I go to one, I always come back with a giant bag of toys and plushies. I remember one time when I was younger, I had managed to fill up the car with them @-@ I was so excited (and it's how I found out what my lucky number was). And more recently, my boyfriend won me a 3 or 4 foot giant Polar Bear Plush. I always found the games a lot of fun and un-failure-y.

And, well, if you really don't want to fail, you can just play those "Fishing" and "Pick a Duck" games where you're guaranteed a prize. XD

Have I not put one in the comic yet? Weird! I should do that more often. *nods*

(I love that you said Primerian. :D)

Squee! I'm helping out with a carnival this weekend, funnily enough. I love the ring toss pic! With her leg tucked up Skydancer looks like a one-armed carnie.

Watching little kids play their games is hilarious, many are wicked serious when choosing their ducks!

Remember kids; it's not whether you win or lose, but whether you've got that special person you're going starry-eyed over with you the whole time! XD!

Me, I just like the rides. I don't have that much disposable cash to spend on games.

Brightly won it. ^_^ I didn't double-check my shots before arranging this one, so I didn't notice that Kimono was blocking the view of the prizes. *facepalm*

*chuckles* Love the shots this week. The lighting is fantastic. The 'outdoor' pictures are really beautiful. Yay for Skydancer making an appearance too. :D The little plush pony in the last panel is seriously cute. Mini Magic Star?

Fake grass and construction paper! XD Sometimes, simple works best.

Awwwww. ♥ Yeah, carnival games are fun even when you lose, especially when you have someone there to win something for you. Unless you're like me, and you get super-obsessed with winning, and you blow all your money trying to toss a tiny ring over an empty Coke bottle or a ping-pong ball into a goldfish bowl...

(I'm not so bad anymore. On a middle school field trip to the county fair, though, I went nuts and spent all my money trying to win a fish. Then I had no money left for a soda, and I thought I might die of dehydration on the hour-long bus ride home.)

I'm a little addicted to those slider games, where you drop in a token and a bar pushes it forward, and you hope it pushes off more tokens. Never was too good at the other games, though!

How on earth did you find a tiny ring toss, skeeball, and . . . strength-hammer thing?? (What is that game called, anyway?) Or did you make them? They're so tiny and adorable! <3

WOOOO, SKYDANCER! REPRESENT!

Aren't they awesome? I found them at a Dollar Tree last year. They're really cheap plastic, but they display wonderfully.

I actually thought of your old site when I used Skydancer! He heckled Kimono and Brightly the whole time.
