I decided to use some of my spare time to redesign the Rainbow Brite costumes. I made VERY special care not to make them look like magical girls, its too cliche. I'll probably be doing the three villains next, then the color kids, other villains, maybe the sprites, etc. I can't make the horses because all I really did was trace a couple of photos. (trace... lol Nick Simmons!)

Drawn and Colored in Paint Tool SAI, weapons texture and finishing on Photoshop CS3.

My friends and I want to cosplay this as our "big" costume next year. Do you mind if we cosplay this and your version of Murky? We'll definitely give you credit for the designs!

We also have a 5th person and don't want her to feel left out! Since she likes Tickled Pink, do you think you can design her too?

Wow, great job!
I think they don´t look like magical girls, but like main characters of a fantasy role play game like Final Fantasy or Dragon Quest! I love them <3
Even the weapons are perfect for each character!
