In October 2015 "Crusaders of the Lost Mark" aired. This episode was pretty epic and ground breaking with really good songs (six songs total!), character redemption, top notch animation, and further CMC development. But what really stood out in this episode for me was a never before seen mare, a strikingly beautiful mare who, when not animated with exaggerated expressions injected to make her unlikable by the writers to form her character an unpleasant one, I found to be gorgeous. This mare was Diamond Tiara's mother, Spoiled Rich. Spoiled Rich was written in, it seems, to be the reason Diamond Tiara was mean since Season 1 and to refocus all the resentment and loathing from her and heap it all onto her newly introduced mother. At the end of the episode we have a reformed Diamond Tiara who has learned her special talent and an older mare who is strongly disliked and resented by a very great many.
Looking beyond the negativity, distorted facial expressions, and her own venomous dialogue I saw a mare who I found to be quite lovely in appearance. This mare really had my attention from the very first day I saw her.
This mare was gorgeous! Who is this hidden diamond we are only seeing now and why does she act like this? I loved her "big hair" mane style and tail and her voice was beautiful and her eyes were unique. Her blouse and cutie mark looked really good too! I wanted to see more of this mare so badly!
Spoiled Rich had very little good fan art, almost none at all, and it seemed she did not get any affection at all. I thought about this pony a lot after seeing her. She made three more appearances in Season 6. It was really nice to see her in "Applejack's Day Off" and I was relieved that she was not forgotten. I went crazy when the younger version of her was shown in "Where the Apple Lies" and she got a lot of screen time.
It was before "Where the Apple Lies" aired that I decided to try and give this mare some overdue affection and have a life size plushie of her made. No plushies of her existed to my knowledge. She had to look perfect and she had to look beautiful and she had to look happy when she was completed. Who would be willing to attempt her mane and tail and accessories? There was one artist who came to mind immediately. An artist who has made some beautiful mares and who really gives them womanly attributes and soft eyes. I contacted
and asked her if she was willing to make me this beautiful mare and give her a warm, soft expression with no stress marks under her eyes. I wanted her to feel happy and loved.
Agatrix agreed to make her for me and thus I waited a LONG time for this mare to be completed. I thought about her every day and when I finally got the stash link of her completed pics, I was in total shock of just how good she came out. Agatrix nailed her mane and tail. Spoiled Rich's cutie mark was just the right size, her blouse looked just like it did in the show, and she looked more than happy. I found her to be cute even. I could not believe it. I never thought I would be able to get a plushie of Spoiled Rich due to the complexity of her mane alone. Agatrix went above and beyond and made me this beautiful plushie and even made her necklace for me which I did not ask for. I wanted black socks for her to protect her legs when I sleep with her and also because I thought she would look good wearing them. Spoiled Rich is easily the best Agatrix pony I have in my stable. She arrived super clean and smelling wonderful. She is also the best smelling pony I have from her. Hugging her for the first time felt like hugging a long lost lover and I did not know just how badly I wanted her until after I received her.
I will never forget this amazing thing Agatrix has done for me. My Spoiled Rich is beyond beautiful and she was totally WORTH THE WAIT.
Her body pattern has swelled up again. Her thighs measure 23 inches around and her waist is bigger too which provides more to hug. Spoiled Rich measures 54 inches long hoof to hoof not including her tail. All of her accessories are removable and her eyes and cutie marks are machine embroidered. I could not be happier with how this plushie came out.
It was a good feeling to finally give this mare a lot of affection. I deeply thank Agatrix for making me this epic plushie. I also want to thank the artists who have recently made beautiful artwork of her for me:
Spoiled Rich is another beautiful entity to come out of my favorite season of MLP which is Season 5. LONG LIVE SEASON 5!
