MLP: RD Gala Dress by aerinsol MLP: RD Gala Dress by aerinsol
Confound these ponies, they drive me to design girly dresses.
(It doesn't help that RD's dress is Greek themed, which only made me want to draw it more. *Insert obligatory RD is best pony here* )

Because my muse refused to shut up after watching Best Night Ever/ Suited for Success, have a human Rainbow Dash Gala dress.
I went along with the Greek theme and based her after the Greek goddess of messages and the rainbow, Iris, who also had wings and a rainbow colored robe.

I usually have human RD with wings, but I forgot to draw those in. :| Oh well.
My sister remarked that Rainbow looked too girly, but I say just because RD's a tomboy doesn't mean she can't look pretty.

(Ignore the bowlegs, it's like the only thing I always have trouble drawing right. )

MLP:FiM belongs to Hasbro

Confound these ponies, they drive me to 'daaaaaaaaaw!

I really love how your Rainbow Dash looks crazy confident. Also the way the rainbow falls on her dress, with the red and orange-y bits up front and the gold belt.

The thing I like most about Rainbow Dash is her crazy confidence and brashness. She stands out because she wills herself to be awesome.

I love the rainbow part too, you can't imagine how pleased I was to finally make it look actually pretty instead of tacky and garish.
My first designs had the solid stripes just like the actual gala dress, but coloring it in made my eyes bleed from too many bulky, rigid colors clashing into each other, so I quickly went for a softer airlike blend.

Looking back at this with fresh eyes, I think I made RD look a bit like WonderWoman XD

Hehe, you mean "so awesome /)^3^(\ "
Anyways, derpy meme dropping aside, I finally caved into my girly side that still loves dress up, and am going ahead with drawing the rest of the girls' gala dresses.
I've already done the rough designs (and omg Applejack's is near impossible to make naturally pretty.) and I'll probably post them in their sketchy half finished glory.
I do plan on making a nice one with all of them together, buuut I'm probably getting ahead of myself.

Even in a girly dress, Rainbow Dash just couldn't resist strutting her stuff and striking a pose.
