Welp... Another request done. It's been sometime since we last saw Luna with her old mane, haven't we?
THY REQUEST BY !!!!!!!!!!
Really satisfied how this had turned out. Hopefully it stays at this quality in any future pieces. EDIT: Took away that unsymmetrical pattern on her armor because it's kinda a sore eye. Anyway, I've put a real star constellation in there. Can you find it?
Now if you'll excuse me... NEW ALL-AMERICAN REJECTS ALBUM, HERE I COME!
"Tia, are you sure ponies today go out in the nude? When we were banished, you and I were wearing full skirts and collars, and we sported a lovely veil."
Next Tudor Pony, by popular vote: Princess Luna!
Because Celestia was based off Elizabeth I, I based Luna's dress on the gowns worn by Queen Mary I. Ironically, Mary was actually older than Elizabeth, but oh well. And please, don't ask me what the hell is going on with that double collar/open shirt/veil/crown combo.....thing.
Tudor ladies also had some crazy sleeves. Those things were huge already, but half the time they were made of fur. And they lugged those things in the middle of Summer.
Fun facts: The pearl underneath Luna's moon medalion is in fact 100% real. The pearl was worn on a necklace worn by Mary I (seen in the link below). Called "La Peregrina", it was once the largest pearl in the world, and was in recent years owned by Elizabeth Taylor. It was so big, it once fell out of it's holder and was lost until Taylor found her dog chewing on it. Also, "Always the Same" was a phrase used by Elizabeth the first and is actually written on her coat of arms in Latin.
Okay, enough history! I'm thinking next will either be Cadance or Artemis. We'll see.
Behold your ultimate overlords. Shower them with pagaentry and wubs.
Seriously, even if you hated the finale, how could you not be drowned in feels durring Celestia's Ballad? I knew the moment I heard it I needed to draw something. I also added in Luna and Cadance because I've wanted to draw a pic with all the princesses together for awhile.
Fair warning: If I see any anti Twilacorn comments, they'll be hidden. :>
So I decided when making larger versions of my stained glass designs that I would try to make them better and more cannon. In this version, her mane and tail are much more cannon, and instead of stars like all the other versions with Luna, I've placed bats all around her. I felt like the bats echoed her personality better than stars. Also, it looks like she just had her cloak removed!
