"Oh, Opalescence, can't you just picture it?"
"Moi, stepping up in a stunning new gown at the Grand Galloping Gala in Canterlot!"
Now, let's just pull this away!
"Why, yes! I did make it myself. Thank you so much for asking."
Opal loves the pink fabric.
"Oh, oh. Look who wants to help me. Thank you."
"You want to help me more?"
"Careful now. Don't move. This shouldn't take long at all."
Opal rolls her eyes at Rarity.
"What do you think she's makin'?"
Rarity gets irritated at Twilight and Applejack's rude entry.
"Well, that makes sense. Since this is a dressmaker's shop and all."
This is breaking my concentration!
"Is there something I can help you with?"
"Oh, so very sorry to trouble you, Rarity, but I need a quick favor."
"Could you please fix the button for me? It's my dress for the Grand Galloping Gala."
"You can't wear this...old thing. You need a glamorous new outfit for the Gala and I'll make it for you." (Edna: You can't be seen in this darling. I won't allow it!)
"Oh, that's really sweet of you to offer, Rarity, but I can't let you do that. It would be so much work."
"I insist on making you a new dress."
"Not another word! I won't take no for an answer."
"Let me guess, Applejack. You don't want a new gown either."
"Shoot. I was just gonna wear my old work duds."
"You can't possibly be serious, Applejack! You absolutely must wear formal attire."
"What if I just spruce up your... duds for you a little bit?"
"Okay, sure. Why not? Since you're up for it and all. Just don't make them too...froufrou-y."
"Sorry. New trick. Didn't quite work."
"I-de-a! I'll make you an outfit for the Gala too, Rainbow Dash."
"Outfit for the what now?"
"I'll make one for you and you and all of you. Oh! And of course Pinkie and Fluttershy too. Oh, and when I'm done, we can hold our very own fashion show!"
"Oh, it'll be a little bit of work, but it will be a wonderful boost for my business. Plus, fun!"
Rarity and her friends agree to hold a fashion show of their own.
Rarity using a pair of scissors.
"Oh, Applejack. You make it sound as if it's going to be hard."
"Thread by thread, stitching it together."
"Cutting out the pattern snip by snip."
"Always gotta keep in mind my pacing."
"Making sure the clothes' correctly facing."
"I'm stitching Twilight's dress..."
"...fussing on the details."
"Jewel neckline, don't you know a stitch in time saves nine?"
"Make her something perfect to inspire, even though she hates formal attire."
"Gotta mind those intimate details, even though she's more concerned with sales."
"It's Applejack's new dress."
"Dressmaking's easy, for Pinkie Pie something pink."
"Fluttershy something breezy."
"Blend color and form..."
"Do you think it looks cheesy?"
"Perhaps quite fetching."
"Hook and eye, couldn't you just simply die?"
"Making sure it fits forelock and crest, don't forget some magic in the dress."
"Even though it rides high on the flank, Rainbow won't look like a tank."
"I'm stitching Rainbow's dress."
"And that's the art of the dress!"
the sorcery of seamstressing
Rarity leads her friends to their new dresses.
Reaction about half a second later...
"What do you think of your old duds now, Applejack? Pretty swanky, are they not?" Swanky? Sounds pretty... 90’s.
"And Twilight! I made this dress for you and I designed each outfit theme to perfectly reflect each pony's unique personality."
"Oh, it took me forever to get the colors right on this one, Rainbow Dash, but I did it. Oh, and it turned out beautiful, don't you think?"
"Ooo, and I know you are going to love yours, Fluttershy. It just sings spring!"
"And Pinkie Pie, look! Pink! Your favorite! Aren't they all amazing?"
That dress, see that dress, it isn't what I imagined at all.
This is my face, when I'm trying to be nice.
Applejack and Twilight with surprised looks, Rainbow taking a quick nap.
Rarity doesn't know what to say.
Rarity disheartened that her friends don't like their dresses
I'll do much better, than ever before.
What have I gotten myself into?
A saddened Rarity realises she's bitten off more than she can chew
Hello? Is there anypony in here?
Fluttershy doesn't look as impressionable as Rarity would have hoped.
Rarity asking for Fluttershy's honest opinion on the dress
Rarity forcing Fluttershy to tell her what is wrong.
You really want to know, huh?
Inhaling: Getting ready for one heck of a fashion criticism!
The shoes are too breezy...
Fluttershy ranting about her dress.
Rarity simply can't believe the rant that Fluttershy had just displayed.
That was... quite a mouthful!
"The stars on my outfit need to be technically accurate."
My mane's getting ragged!
Wait until you see it in the light!
Wow, Rarity tied herself up. With some help form Fluttershy.
"That constellation is Canis Major, not Minor."
I have no memory of this "Earth."
The color's fine, just make it cooler.
"It needs to be about 20% cooler."
All we ever want is in decision!
All we really like is what we know!
Gotta balance style with adherence
Making sure we make a good appearance
Even if you simply have to fudge it
make sure that it stays within our budget!
Got to overcome intimidation
Remember, it's all in the presentation!
Pinkie Pie with a marker in her mouth
Aren't you excited, Rarity?
Hoity Toity? He's coming here? To see these dresses?
An unimpressed Hoity Toity.
Waiting for the show to begin.
These dresses are so not my style!
That looks rather unpleasant
Turn up the jam DJ Pon-3.
Let's get this fashion show started.
Getting the music started.
"Since the beginning of time..."
"...the elite of Equestria have longed for pony fashions that truly expressed the essence of their very souls."
"Patiently waiting decades - no, centuries! For the perfect pony gown."
"Today at long last, Equestria, your wait is over!"
"Let's hear it for the breathtaking designs of Ponyville's own..."
The ponies follow each other on stage.
Rainbow Dash's -20% cooler outfit.
The audience appears to be watching a horror show.
Sweetie Drops and Cloud Kicker looking up at the ponies.
Wait...Why are there extra parts on these boots?
Kitchen sink? What kitchen sink?
Ugliest things he ever saw.
These outfits are outrageous!
Ah, my reputation will be ruined!
Spike, calling Rarity out.
Spike clapping for Rarity.
Awkward smile from Rainbow Dash.
Fluttershy's awkward smile.
"Rarity, you OK in there? You haven't come out for days."
Rarity: "I'm never coming out! I can't show my face in Ponyville ever again!"
"I used to be somepony. I used to be respected. I've made dresses. Beautiful, beautiful dresses... but now everypony is laughing at me! I'm nothing but a laughing stock!"
"You're not a laughing stock, Rarity."
"Come on out and talk to us."
"Leave me alo-ho-ho-ho-ho-ho-ho-ho-one! I want to be alone! I want to wallow in... whatever it is that ponies are supposed to wallow in!"
"Do ponies wallow in pity?"
"Oh, listen to me, I don't even know what I'm supposed to wallow in! I'm so pathe-he-ti-hi-hi-hi-ic!"
Twilight: "Now what do we do?"
Fluttershy: "Uh, panic?"
Rainbow: "That's your answer for everything!"
"Well, we can't just leave Rarity like this."Pinkie Pie:
"She'll become a crazy cat lady
"Where would I go and what would I pack? Oh, it's going to take me forever to do all that packing. What are you supposed to pack when you go into exile? Are you supposed to pack warm?"
"Opal, how did you get up there?"
"Hang on, you poor dear!"
"Rainbow Dash! How dare you strand my poor Opal in a tree!"
"Well, how else were we gonna get you out here to show you..."
Rarity's Gala dress, ironically stitched by Fluttershy.
"What is it? It's not, no--"
Pinkie Pie: "We all finished your dress for you!"
Applejack: "Thanks to Fluttershy's freaky knowledge of sewin'."
"No, I don't like it."
[Groans of disappointment]
"It's exactly the way I imagined it."
"Like we should have let you do for our outfits."
"You worked really hard to make our dresses exactly the way we wanted them..."
"...we all saw how that turned out."
"Well, that's mighty big of you."
Poor Rarity, though Opal doesn't seem to care.
"All right, I haven't got all day."
I love this man's fashion sense.
Starting the second show, with a touch of magic.
Rarity starting her second show with a flash her might.
Amazing way of starting a fashion show.

Too bright to see the style
