Fashion Fun--My Little Ponies in Real Life: Applejack

I'm not sure what to say about Applejack. She is a down-to-earth character who works hard and is always willing to help out a friend.  She's a good pony to have around.  She also is extremely competitive and not afraid to have a little fun.  I like her.  She just doesn't stand out like the first three ponies I've done--in my mind anyway.  Maybe if I was a little more country or if she wasn't so familiar to me (having grown up in the great state of North Dakota, she reminds me of many of the people I knew/know there), she would be higher on my favorites list.  I don't know.  It was still fun figuring out how to portray her in fashion.

As I did so, I came across this picture in a Google search:

This looks like Applejack to me, but not the version of Applejack I would want my 4-year-old emulating. Throwing her in short shorts and a midriff-baring shirt is a sad commentary on how our society distorts what a good woman should be and look like. But that's probably a rant for another post.  The mother in me is just scared for the future self-esteem of my daughters.


I obviously went a different route in my styling. More sophisticated and southern belle, I think. I hope it speaks to people other than me.  Can I hear a "Yeehaw!"?


So far in my quest to put the Friendship is Magic ponies into fashion, I've done Rarity, Pinkie Pie, and Rainbow Dash.  Click on their names to see their style boards.  The products used to make this style board are listed below if you're interested in emulating this kind of Applejack. ;)

P.S. I don't get anything if you click through to these items.  I just thought it might be fun to check out how the crazy (and sometimes not so crazy) prices on some of these fashions.
