You'd be surprised how much concentration it takes to tie a bow tie around the root of a pony's tail without waking them up ;P

About a week ago I randomly got hit by a rush of "OMG ponies with bow ties on their tail is the cutest thing ever" and after trying to find a canon character with a design that includes such a thing and finding none, Pirill-Poveniy suggested I draw Octavia instead. Needless to say I immediately jumped on the idea of "shipping" her with Vinyl, and this image was born.

Thanks to Pirill-Poveniy, thediscorded and Tvio for their feedback & suggestions!

How does one even put those bows in the mane or tail anyway ? Squeezing the hair bundle to drive it through a hole in the middle of the bow ? That's pretty much the only way I can imagine it being possible; even if it was for simplicity sake, Scoots just tapping one into SB's mane was a little too easily done.

You really should post more ponies with bows, especially if the bow is bigger than this. IMO Apple Bloom's is a good minimum size. While I personally prefer bows in the mane, one in the tail ain't all that bad either.

I've seen enough cartoons to know.

And there was that time I flew a plane full of dynamite right into some fat Korean dictator. Still got his head mounted at home. :)

A pony is asleep and one can do soemthing to another. Draw on their face. Put something to alter their dreams. Perhaps gou should make a base for this pic

I only permit others to make bases of my show traces since they might as well have made their base based on the show, I don't fully consider those my own work anyway. But I'm definitely not making a base out of original sketch traces like this one.

If you're going for the 'take ribbon off one place and put it on the tail' idea, Apple Bloom is probably your best bet. The ribbon is big enough. Apple bloom jumping

Eh, for her body size, that's probably true. Maybe not if you put it on AJ and gave Apple Bloom the hat, though. XD

It's kind of cute imagine if her tail have that ribbon. :) But a bigger ribbon is better.
