1) All of the above

2) E, whilst slowly encroaching upon D. C is also likely given the number of times she's banged her head against the wall, and A will certainly come about after everything is said and done.

3) Both B and C

4) C. Trust me, you really don't.

5) D. Whatever they are, they're certainly engaging in E as well.

6) Hard to answer since I'm currently hanging from a noose of my own creation.

7) E. All of the E. It's not even funny how much E.

My answers:
A, D, C, B, D, C, A.

It's a travesty, but it's a very Pinkie Pie travesty. (Rarity, of course, is off-screen, drowning her sorrows and numbing her brain with marshmallow-maple syrup-hot fudge ice cream sodas, with the "soda" being a triple whiskey soda. Possibly with a bit of Goldschager in it, because sometimes, cinnamon and flake gold are exactly what you need.)

1: A
2: C
3: D
4: B
5: C
6: C
7: A

Like the above poster says, it hurts the eyes, but in a very Pinkie sort of way. But then again, I've been told I can be too charitable...

1. D
2. E
3. D
4. B
5. E
6. D
7. E

Why does this exist.:raritydespair:

1. A. Honestly, I could see Pinkie wearing this. Don't forget what she thought was appropriate dragon-slaying charming attire.

2. F. Ordered at crossbowpoint. This isn't the product of a drug-induced haze. This was coerced, and I can feel the rage and indignation Rarity put into it.

3. C. Also E, emergency rations. It appears to be some kind of bracket fungus. Granted, assuming they're edible might be the last mistake I ever make...

4. B. That's pretty clearly a balloon animal of some description. That said, I'm not discounting the possibility of it being a balloon Hound of Tindalos.

5. D. I thought they were swim goggles. Makes as much sense as any other part of the outfit.

6. E. Infuriated. Someone clearly slipped that in to make me look bad.

7. A. A small price to pay if I can destroy it as quickly as possible.

The main question should be:
Would Pinkie Pie put this on voluntarily?
I believe the answer is "Yes".

I kind of feel that this is Hasbro trying their best to remind us that they're just making toys for little kids dammit, the pressure is getting to be too much, too much...!

This is something Pinkie Pie would wear, but probably not around Rarity, because she would spontaneously combust.

This is sort of the war between "girls of a certain age are magnetically attracted to the color pink" and "girls of a certain intelligence will look at this thing and say 'Please, darling, not in my toybox.'"

2613766

Also, I think this comes with a button, and when pressed it says "Fools! This isn't even my final form!"

2613694

1. A. Honestly, I could see Pinkie wearing this. Don't forget what she thought was appropriate dragon-slaying charming attire.

"...we've tried fashion! Style! Whatever-it-is Pinkie's wearing!"

1. D
2. E
3. C
4. C
5. D
6. D
7. E
And the designers should feel even more ashamed for this creation. I don't buy toys like this at all, and even I feel sorry for those who do.

She's Pinkie Pie

She makes it work

I think "Because Pinkie Pie" only works when it doesn't involve a whole outfit. ESPECIALLY when said outfit is this bad.

That's no skirt, that's an umbrella!
images.wikia.com/mlp/images/archive/5/5a/20130215072238!Pinkie_Pie_cute_expression_S01E15.png
"Hmm... If I shoved my upper half through this thing, would it be a fashion disaster... or fashion miracle?"

2613694

This is pretty much that outfit, except with the snorkel and swim fins removed for being too coherent.

1. D
2. All of the above. Then Rarity would shoot herself with Dirty Harry's Magnum, creating an abstract paintwork on the wall behind her.
3. I'd like to see D happen
4. A and C
5. C
6. B
7. E

1-D: This is obviously meant as a weapon for the Shadow Wars. Night Shadows take one look at it and fall away screaming, yearning to return to their lightless Universe of dead stars and false maximum entropy.

2-D: Insane. Trixie must have gone all Nightmare Delusion on her.

3-C: Starting the next war against the buffalo. Celestia later admitted that it was a very poor decision to make Pinkie her ambassador. The really bad thing was that they fed the buffalo treaty apple juice before hand, and the buffalo assumed that it had been spiked the moment Pinkie showed up wearing this outfit.

4-C: If we ever knew, the Universe would begin ending.

5-D ...those are sunglasses? No, really? I thought they were some sort of goggles.

6-C A desperate need to explain yourself. "Hon, I wasn't going to make you wear that until at least the fifth date ..."

7-E Yeah, pretty much. Please tell me this was a custom job and Hasbro didn't make it.

1. A
2. B, then C, then D, then E, then A.
3. C, and possibly D. Unless Pinkie's secretly a stallion, the skirt does nothing.
4. B, which may also be D. I believe there's going to be an episode about it in season 5.
5. A and B. I should point out that she's wearing them upside-down; the fake mustache is supposed to go down (but that's Pinkie for you)
6. A. I do what I want.

7. No more than C.

1. How would you describe the fashion being presented here?
D. My Eyes, My Eyes, Oh Dear Sweet Unmerciful Deity My Bleeding Eyes
2. Pretend you just discovered that Rarity was the designer. Would you say she was:
D. Insane
3. The skirt is useful for:
D. If you got it rotating, there would be a chance for jet propulsion
4. Examine the headgear. What is at the top?
C. You don't know and you don't want to know
5. The sunglasses are:

6-C A desperate need to explain yourself. "Hon, I wasn't going to make you wear that until at least the fifth date ..."

Number of heterosexual females who instantly lose their prospective boyfriends upon uttering those words: not as high as you might think.

Please tell me this was a custom job and Hasbro didn't make it.

Sorry: that picture comes directly from an online toy catalog. $15.99 plus potential regional sales tax, but States residents get free domestic shipping.

2613970

"I'm not having fun. I've had fun. This isn't it!"

2614008

5. A and B. I should point out that she's wearing them upside-down; the fake mustache is supposed to go down (but that's Pinkie for you)

Maybe she's trying to invent the pony unibrow...?

I thought it was a swimsuit, the kind with the skirt. That's an abomination. I assume it's part of a line; are the others this bad, or is it Pinkie being Pinkie?

2614109

I'm not having fun. I've had fun. This isn't it!"

Oh, come now, nothing's more fun than a fashion train wreck!

I particularly like the unibrow/overelevated-mustache.

However, I can't help but notice that the rainbow hair is the wrong color and style for our Pinkamina. Are you sure it's her? Do you have cutie-mark corroboration?

O am arrempting to rwspond to yiur surbey

but O CAMMOT SEE

VLIND

I AN VLIND

I THINK TJERE IS VLOOD ON MY FAXE :raritydespair:

1. D. Which does, now that I think about it, include B and C.
2. F. All of the above, at the same time.
3. B. Although it probably would be useful for inciting war with the buffalo, since you mention it. It might also be useful for propulsion of some sort, but not jet propulsion.
4. As tempted as I am to say D, my honest answer has to be C.
5. E.
6. D.
7. E.

1. D "I've seen worse. Mind you, I was horribly drunk at the time..."
2. D "Who's been letting Rarity do LSD and design?
3. D "You mean, that isn't what it's supposed to be?
4. C "Funny, I've never seen somebody do a balloon eldrich abomination."
5. E "Ia! Ia! Pinkie Pie, Ia!"
6. D "It's amazing how being dead cuts down on those annoying conversations."
7. F "I plan on just lighting them all on fire right here in the middle of the store. Saves time and effort."

2614109

an online toy catalog. $15.99

Which one? I must have one of these.

2614528

...seriously?

You may be joking, but I can't afford to lose the comedy if you aren't. It's Target.

On the bright side, this is distinctly Pinkie, unlike the Target-exclusive "Pinkie's Boutique" line that featured Pinkamena Gothic Pie. :pinkiehappy:

Though at least those were, you know, recognizable as clothes.

Also,

1. How would you describe the fashion being presented here?
C. Troublesome
(Yet highly Pinkie in its zaniness)

2. Pretend you just discovered that Rarity was the designer. Would you say she was:
E. Weeping to the point of dehydration
(But that's a Tuesday for her)

3. The skirt is useful for:
C. Starting the next war against the buffalo
D. If you got it rotating, there would be a chance for jet propulsion
(Really, if you got both of these together it would be first shorts fired for the Equestrians)

4. Examine the headgear. What is at the top?
A. Angel Bunny's ultimate fate
(As devised by Discord)

5. The sunglasses are:
E. Burrowing into your very soul before eating it
(Shoo Be Doo Shoo Shoo Be Doo)

6. If someone you'd just begun dating saw this piece in your toy collection, you would feel:
D. You tend not to feel anything port-mortem
(Resulting from asphyxiation via trying to swallow it before said someone saw it)

7. If you saw this in a store, you would pay:
C. Fifteen dollars
(Target's exclusives tend to be priced about fair, and the accessories give it EXTRA VALUE)

2614755
I bought one of those. Best thing ever.
(Except for Nightmare Moon in a gala dress)

1) D. My Eyes, My Eyes, Oh Dear Sweet Unmerciful Deity My Bleeding Eyes
2) B. Stoned
3) D. If you got it rotating, there would be a chance for jet propulsion
4) B. Balloon Buddy!
5) C. Stolen from Vinyl's collection
6) B. Embarrassed
C. A desperate need to explain yourself
7) E. You will give them all your money as long as they don't make you leave with it

2614554
I'm not joking. I need one of those to go with my Goth Pinkie Pie.
static.rainbowdash.net/file/eqdpony-20130715T204005-qk9l735.jpeg

1: Very Pinkie Pie.
2: Letting Pinkie Pie control every aspect of the actual design, a la Suited for Success.
3: Mimicking human fashion, after a fashion.
4: A balloon Cheerilee.
5: Actually swim goggles.
6: Confused; how did that get there? If I were to buy toy ponies, they'd be of the stuffed variety.
7: Closer attention to the video game section.

1. A) Eclectic, because I can't really criticize people for unorthodox fashion.
2. B) Stoned, because this could not have come about accidentally, so drunk/concussed is out, and it's not so bad as insane.
3. D) Jet propulsion: that actually sounds pretty cool.
4. B) Balloon Buddy!? I think? It's a balloon, and it seems buddylike.
5. C) Stolen from Vinyl's collection. Clearly.
6. A) Proud. They'd probably laugh, and that's probably the only reason I'd own this, so it would be a win.
7. D) Twenty dollars. Because the possibilities are endless.

Of all the blog posts I've ever put up, this one has the most views.

If I can ever figure out what the lesson here is, I'm definitely gonna need another scroll.

2614755
I'm sorry, did you say there's a Gothic Pinkie Pie toy?

2615628
Personally, I like it.

1) a. it's Pinkie, this is totally the sort of thing she would wear
2) d. thus not crying.
3) d. this being Pinkie that was the whole point.
4) b. it makes no sense obviously, but, again, Pinkie
5) d. I'm seriously not sure those are supposed to be sunglasses, and the 'stache is just confusing, since if you flip them arround it would still be in the wrong place. it would be at the top of the nose, which makes no sense on a pony or human face.
6) c. mostly to myself because I've never bought any brushable pony and would be incredibly confused if any of them were suddenly in my collection.
7) a. but only because I'm not willing to pay someone else to not buy it.

2615628

Sheer, morbid curiosity, perhaps?

2614791

I bought one of those. Best thing ever.
(Except for Nightmare Moon in a gala dress)

If you're gonna extinguish the sun and leave the world in eternal darkness, best to do it in style!


2616635

I'm sorry, did you say there's a Gothic Pinkie Pie toy?

It comes in original and Equestria Girls flavors.


2615628

Of all the blog posts I've ever put up, this one has the most views.
If I can ever figure out what the lesson here is, I'm definitely gonna need another scroll.

I think the lesson is that people like fun, and this is very fun. :pinkiehappy:

2616764

If you're gonna extinguish the sun and leave the world in eternal darkness, best to do it in style!

Darn straight. Nothing wrong with a well-dressed villain.

2617565

The black RD figure isn't all that bad-looking, really. It goes along with the translucent-bodied ones Funko's been making for a while now; they're variations on a theme, but still recognizably the same character.

Some of the other exclusives Target's hawking on their site, though, are just bizarre. It's almost as if they're actively trying to see just how far they can push the "most blatantly off-model, out-of-character, and certifiably-insane toy design" envelope...

1) D. Without question, D. I will have nightmares for months to come.

2) A, B, C, and D. Possibly E as well, but insane ponies don't tend to weep. It's difficult to do that when you're in your own world and have no grasp on reality.

3) B and C. WTF is up with that thing?

4) B. It's Pinkie Pie. Don't ask, just go with it.

5) B and D. I don't want to know...

6) Since I'd rather die from blood loss via testicles that have amputated with a chainsaw wielded by a rabid wombat hopped up on PCP than own it, D.

7) E. No question.

2619711 Sorry about the Wombat, I don't know how he got out of his cage...
