As an UK expat, I have to say I miss the actual thrill of hunting in stores as frustrating as it was when distribution was bad. I feel spoiled for choice in America in comparison lol.

Plokatron, I don't think many comics companies do direct subscriptions like that anymore. However many local comic shops will reserve comics for you in a subscription fashion.

All will be revealed in the next 2-3 months, anyway; at least all about Season 1, lol. Even Lauren Faust can't give out too much future info, judging by her dA. I think the most she's ever really said is hinting at stuff that may happen in the next week or two's worth of episodes. She hinted at Sweetie Belle's introduction shortly before Call of the Cutie, for instance; and also mentioned not long ago that we'd be seeing some of the parents of the main cast sometime soon.

Of course it is. I'm the one who put it in. Most of the silly Lyra stuff is stuff I posed out for the animators. She is my go to pony for silly stuff.

I was watching Dress For success last nite, and it still hits me a bit muddled. The problem is at the start, with the dresses Rarity makes for everyone....they don't like them.

We eventually get the "don't look a gift horse in the mouth" moral, but again, they didn't like them. It's like if you got an ugly sweater for christmas, and then was expected to wear it in public....or were given inedible cupcakes to eat, and were told to swallow them because they're a gift and that's what you're supposed to do.


Did you actually see what the other ponies ended up having her make?

Only Rainbow Dash's looked good out of the group. And that was mainly because she mainly stayed out of Rarity's way in the redesign.

Twilight Sparkle's and Applejack's could have easily been saved with some tweets if they had let Rainbow Dash go out there on her own first instead of all going at once.

Fluttershy's needed some work need to get but was just barely saveable.

Pinky Pie's however just plain needed to go period as there was nothing to save there.

Even in the aired HD versions of the episode, it doesn't seem quite possible to make out the symbol on her drink, but your version looks to be clearer and it seems to be wheat. I take it she's drinking a wheat shake or something, lol.

I dunno if hers was salvageable. I mean, she was wearing a bird's nest with eggs in it for a hat. Whether the eggs were real or fake is mostly immaterial; either way it's ridiculous, lol. I thought Fluttershy's was perhaps the worst out of all their "custom" dresses, which is a bit funny given her great technical knowledge.

See..that's irrelevant. That goes to the "if you try to please everypony, you'll please nopony" moral. But whether Rarity's first gowns are "good" or not is a matter of fashion tastes (We're told by Hoity Toity that they're excellent...compare to "high fashion" on Paris runways--"excelence" is often ridiculous).

The story turns into a story about artists compromising their visions, but from the start point it goes into a "dealing with unwanted gifts" story (like an uncle sweater from grandma at XMas) or even a be true to yourself/don't conform to fashion trends story.

Hers kinda proves my point about the "quality" of the dresses...Fluttershy's, as copying "French Haute Couture" is representative of "high fashion"...at one point that was the wows of the fashion world, only to be ridiculous later.

So Swarm definitely takes place after Suited for Success. Rarity is probably storing the dresses for the others until the Gala.

That's pretty cool, actually. I'd love to have a pony version of myself appear as a background character in the show, lol. If I were an animator on it, I doubt I'd be able to resist doing so.


I've managed to resist so far. Besides, I wouldn't be a very attractive looking pony anyway.

So then Lyra isn't the embodiment of how you'd act if you were a pony,
not counting how everyone pairs her up with Bonbon.


Did we establish whether Suited came after or before 'Look before you sleep'?
Because Rarity's line about Applejack, 'got to mind those intimate details,
even though she's more concerned with sales' has been bugging me.


Finally:

My horrible slouching habit may have worked it's way into the bench scene... really I just like to add something silly into crowd scenes when I have time. Of course, everything still needs approval from supervisors/directors/hasbro/etc, so we never add anything outrageous.

The Lyra/Bonbon pairing I'd say is mostly coincidental. When setting up a crowd scene I tend to place ponies next to each other based on their colors as well as the colors of the surroundings. You want the colors to compliment each other but also not draw attention away from the focus of the scene. Lyra/Bonbon look good next to each other, which is why it just seems to happen most of the time. I do like how it's played out amongst the fans (I can kinda see them as being best friends).

They certainly make an amusing pair in comics. Lyra's coloring is probably one of my favorites among the background ponies, along with Rose.
