my best to replicate the font used on the
Rainbow Echos' hair is based on the G1 Rainbow Ponies hair colours, but not an exact match. I chose instead to go for darker versions of the colours, to give her a more bold look. Her ribbon is a streamer, to celebrate the Arena's birthday. (You can see what I mean when I say that by this time I was putting more thought into my customs, eh?)
Rainbow Echos came in second in her category of the contest, behind a custom made by AeraCura named Rainbow Memories. She was a pink pony with the Original 6 G1 Collectors Ponies painted on her as TAF symbols.
