Wow! My journal was way out of date. It's been a busy fall!
I'm already planning 2 MLP cosplay outfits for the 2013 MLP Fair. I've done Gilda and Discord already. I'm working on another villain and a hero, but I'm not sure which I'll wear for the contest and which I'll wear on the other day. I'll just wait to see how they come together. I've ordered wigs for both already and am scouting other pieces / deciding what I need to make.
As always my workspace is full of customs in various stages. Currently I have 2 personal trades, 1 commission, 1 Hasbro-based for a group challenge, and a few just because. I'm also planning to participate in 1 upcoming swap. That being said, I do have room for more commissions.
I bought some Testors Dullcoat yesterday to try instead of Modge Podge. The last time I used a spray sealer it left the ponies sticky *forever* but I'm willing to give a spray one more try.
Customs in progress in no particular order:bold

Roogna's Custom Creations on Facebook is where I post WIPs and updates, answer questions, give tips and will probably host future contests through there.
