A Pony With Sunburn Is Not A Good Look: The Sunshine Blogger Award!

Now it’s time for something a little bit out of the ordinary and a little bit different. We all know that at this point in time the world is out of sorts so it’s nice to have that little ray of sunshine every now and again. Luckily for me that ray of sunshine just gotten bigger with me being nominated for the Sunshine Blogger Award!  


I made my first couple of graphics! I think they turned out good!

Like always we have to begin with the rules:

  • Thank the person who nominated you and provide a link to their blog so that other people can visit them.
  • Answer the 11 questions put to you by the nominator.
  • Nominate 11 bloggers of your choosing and provide them with a new set of 11 questions to answer.
  • Notify the nominees by commenting on one of their blog posts.
  • List the rules and display The Sunshine Blogger Award logo within your post or on your blog site.

The person that nominated me for the Sunshine Blogger Award was no other then Pinkie from Pinkie’s Paradise, who is one of the many active bloggers I know and has helped me come out of my shell and try and blog more then keep hiding away!

I always love reading Pinkie’s new posts and look forward to any new ones that pop up, I will recommend checking her blog out as her blog is just so CUTE! Especially with all the restyling she has done! (I so need to know how she managed to get a animated background working on her blog!) Anyway onto my answers and if you need any directions to Pinkie’s site just click here!

I am a tad late getting this done (along with everything else hahaha) but I really reaaaally needed to get my training for work completed otherwise my manager will literally murder me with a spatula!


I mean she would if she could, is it even possible to be murdered by a spatula? 

Answers That Saprkle


Q: Have you ever cosplayed, if yes.. what’s your best cosplay? If no what would you cosplay if you could?

Sadly no, I never had enough money to spend on the materials I would need for my cosplay, nor have I had the confidence to pull of a cosplay, I am very self conscious about my body and hate the fact that I still have some “puppy fat” at 33 years old.  Even though I am pretty much self conscious about my body I would still push myself out of my comfort zone and cosplay some of my favourite characters.

There’s a little list of cosplays I would love to pull off from my favourite anime and games, Zelda from The Legend of Zelda series, Hitomi Kanzaki from the Vision of Escaflowne and Chibi Usa from Sailor Moon being three that I would love to go for!

Aren’t these girls cool! 

Bonus Pic!

My shitty edit again

Kinda scary shoving Pinkie Pies head on Chibi Usa, gives me the willies!  

emoji Q: What is the least geeky thing about you?

What is the least geeky thing about me…man this one is so so hard! Hahaha! I think the least geeky thing about me is that I love love to go for long walks! I just go where my feet take me!

emoji Q: If your life was ever turned into an anime, what type of anime would it be?

Hmm.. I think it would be a dramatic slice of life shoujo that would depict me failing adulthood severely and kinda boring…until my life goes from boring to eventful where I’m transported to another realm to go saving the world with my babble of followers that consist of my favourite characters who somehow got dumped in said realm along with me, and blamed me for that happening cause I had to go poking that portal till it exploded and sucked us all in!

It would all fall on Van and Chise to try and find us a way home without me screwing everything up in the process!!

another realm

This was fun to make I gotta admit that, plus I just couldn’t stop laughing!!!

emoji Q:  If your life was ever turned into a video game, what type of game it would be?

It most probably be the same as the anime adaption just more in depth and set out like a JPRG!

Chise would be a perfect character to take the Healer position considering one of her abilities is creating medicine in Mahoutsukai no Yome (The Ancient Magus Bride).

Van would be taking the warrior class, mainly swordsman as he is quite adaptable when equipped with his own sword, though I can picture him cursing his head off about the amount of times I died throughout our adventure.

Hitomi would be our visionary, she can predict things before they happen through visions even though some do take a mental impact on her.

Duo is pretty good at stealth so I can picture him using that to his advantage with some pretty good stealth kills when we cannot attack outright.

Heero is more melee so would just attack outright but he is also good at physical combat and can use that to his advantage.

Luffy would be similar to Heero and would create a good tag team with him.

emoji Q: If you’d have to choose any other archetype but geek, what would you want to be?

I would be a story teller, one of my goals is to be an author and have my own set of YA Fantasy books out there in the world! It would be a big achievement for me in my life, I have a few brainstorms going on some of the characters but I’m keeping that a secret for now..Suuuush..


I would love to be a well known author and have alot of people adoring my stories and characters!!

emoji Q: What’s the worst thing you have ever done to a friend?

The worst thing I did to a friend is throw a book at them! I do treat my friends with alot of respect and never treat them all badly, but this friend of mine (who is now my boyfriend, strange things happened ya know) just would not be quiet so I could read, all he ever did was natter away to me and then the book went flying at him…I regret that so much…


emoji Q: What is your favourite alcoholic beverage and tell us about when you had too much of it.

Believe it or not I have not had one ounce of alcohol pass my lips ever, so I never had any drunk stories to tell. (Which is ironic considering I work in a pub!) It’s mainly tied to my past, I’ve seen what alcohol can do to a person and sadly I was a victim of that, my dad is a severe alcoholic and he used to abuse me, my siblings and my mother, so I never ever touched the stuff.


It’s still quite hard to talk about as it affected me my entire life in so many ways.

emoji Q: How would you take over the world, in a world of endless possibilities? Be evil!

Firstly I would destroy all the world leaders and then brain wash everyone across the globe to do my bidding and make my cat their supreme leader!! (come on who doesn’t want to be ruled over by an evil kitty!)

I would then force people to constantly pick up litter (mainly because I am so sick of people dumping litter everywhere) and to become my cats slaves and servants and imprison their families if they refused!!!

crazy and evil

Okay I’ll admit I am so bad at being evil…

emoji Q: Which anime character you think could stop the you from question 8.

Can I pick two…I can picture Usagi Tsukino and Sakura Kinomoto tag teaming and defeating me and my kitty! Me and my lovely Videl would pass in each others arms and live a happy and evil afterlife where we destroy Satan and take his throne and become rulers of hell!!

my defeat

I think they would make a great team!

emoji Q: Which anime characters would be the henchmen to the you from question 8.

I would brain wash the best of the best to become my henchmen! The Prince of all Sayain’s – Vegeta and of course Goku would be mine and Videl’s guards! Piccolo and Gohan would lead my mighty army!


But they may have a tough time with this lot…we shall see if Usagi and Sakura come up triumphant! 

emoji Q: If you could make one true wish, but it had to be at least  somewhat selfish, what would it be?

If I could make one wish for myself it would be to be a millionaire and live in a posh mansion that has a pool with all my cats! They would have their own rooms and have luxurious beds like I would! They would also have loads and loads of toys and their own pool side loungers!!!


I’ll be the new kid on the block!

  1. OMG I loved this!
    I will defo answer your questions though it will be a few weeks before the post will go up (since I have fairly recently done it and got some other tags waiting)

    You went all out with the evil part!
    I’d give people all across the world one perfect day of Happiness and then use that power to force them into servitude. Making them fight for it and work for it, not giving nearly enough! But all shall follow me in their struggle for bliss!

    I love how you went all out with the images, I love making these things as well! Yours look super clean!
    Since I share a name with Pinkie Pie (though that is actually a semi coincidence) it’s fun to see both pinkie’s do a post in this style! I had a blast looking and reading trough it all thank you!

      It’s fine Pinkie, just concentrate on those other tags first! 🙂 I thought I was being tame with the evil part! XD Guess I did give my all there!

      Your evilness there just made me laugh so much, forcing people into servitude through happiness is just a good evil plan to put into play!

      Actually your blog inspired those images, I was so taken aback with all the graphics you have done that it sort of inspired me to try my hand at it, it was alot of fun and I just loved creating all the images and graphics for my blog. I always tend to put myself down when doing graphics that I just lose motivation, guess I just needed that one inspiration to push me forward! ❤️❤️❤️

      I had a feeling your name was a reference to Pinkie Pie! She is one of my favourite MLP’s, I think she has the most funniest expressions that really just make her stand out! (My username came to me when I was looking up some My Little Pony fanart!)

      1. My blog actually started out as a Pokémon only blog, I wanted a name like Red and Blue so I decided to name myself Pink Cherryblossom at first. (Cherryblossom since I ‘d also be the pokémon professor whose always named after a tree) however I kept getting reminded of P!nk the rock chick who I dont have a lot in common with.. since my brand is much more in line with Pinkie Pie.. the name became Pinkie, which is a good thing since Pinky with a Y already was in Owls Bloggers which I am a part off xD

        I did have some older blogs on here before I started How Anime Stuff Works but they didn’t represent that well and I struggled to keep them running. (At the time I was also having to deal with someone that stalked my blogs constantly and harassed me alot about what I blogged on them). So I created this one and went from there! Funnily enough I was mumbling the name of my blog over and over for days till I was like “Yep! I love it!”
