So I can see Sweetie Belle becoming a Broadway (excuse me, BRIDLEway...) star when she grows up. Not only can she sing, but she loves showtunes and she seems to have a big interest in the theater. Especially with her sister's connections in Manehatten, she could easily learn to rock some of the best roles on stage.

I don't know how many of these I plan to make, I've only got 3 right now but more may come as inspiration hits. All of which with grown-up Sweetie Belle playing different special ladies of Broadway. To me, the first show I think of when I think Broadway is Phantom of the Opera. It was the first Broadway play I saw on stage and thanks to my sister I had a healthy knowledge of it long before the 2004 film version with Gerald Butler (which BTW, I loved). So here we have Sweetie Belle as the leading lady of the show, ballerina and singer Christine Daae (make your own horse pun with it. XD). In particular, I was aiming for the dress she wears when singing "Think of Me".

She originally did have her full-length hair most adult depictions of her have, but I noticed just how good this short mane style actually really works. More Christine depictions need to have short hair. It can be just as gorgeous as anything. :heart:

Also, I imagine that there's a special stage artist who's job is designing and painting on a character's cutie mark on their actors' flank during makeup. Imagine, after all that time of trying to find a cutie mark, Sweetie Belle gets a new one with each new role. :iconsweetieepiphanyplz:

She looks smashing (as Rarity would say). :)

Thanks! ^^ I'm sure Rarity would be super proud of her - maybe even a little teary-eyed. :lol:

Aw... I can imagine Pip being her Raoul!

I'm more in the pool of pairing her with Button. XD But maybe one of them is the Phantom! And thanks. :D
