MLP 's 25th Anniversary: Celebrate, Fete, & Jubilee

The MLP brand celebrated it's 25th anniversary in 2008.  Naturally, the custom contest theme for that year's MLP Fair was the same.  I created the Anniversary Trio, who took Second Place.

Celebrate is the G1 unicorn custom, who's symbol is a silver 25th with silver confetti.  Fete is the G2 earth pony custom, who's symbol is a silver 10th with silver confetti (I cheated a bit here, because the G2s came out in 1997, so really it was their 11th year.)  Jubilee is the G3 pegasus custom, who's symbol is a silver 5th with silver confetti.  I wanted to mark the anniversaries of all three generations of MLP with this set.  The G1 and 2 were fully repainted, while the G3 has her original body colour.  They all have blue eyes, and they all have rainbow hair, because the rainbow has always been such a major part of the MLP line.  I also wanted to use an earth pony, unicorn, and pegasus to represent the three major types of MLP.
