Pony: Daisyjo (purple)
Description: Enchanted Evening is purple with black points on
her legs, nose and ears. Her mane and tail
are dark blue, light purple and pink streaked mane. Her eyes are
the same dark blue as her main with touch of aqua in them. Her
symbol is that of a magic wand over two aqua swooshes
(representing water) with small dots of white and pale yellow
sprinkling out from the wand (representing stars).
Story: Enchanted Evening is a pony who enjoys making people's
wishes come true. With a wave of her wand, she can make the
night become a magical time of fun and reverie for all the
ponies and their friends. From the shadows she watches them
before laughing merrily and slipping off to spread her magic.
Innovative in Paradise Award
beautiful pony features darker "color points" with
words in them. This is the first time we've ever seen
a design like this! The book & red rose go well
with her dark brown hair. Overall, a very unique pony
with artistic flair!
design was also selected by Aikarin & her friends.
It was a hard decision, because there were so many unique
entries! This design is something
"different", yet beautiful. The winner will
receive a randomly selected pony in minty condition.
Base Pony: Bow Tie
Description: Storybook is a white pony with brown words around a shaded portion
of her muzzle and legs. Her mane tail and eyes are all a dark reddish brown,
though her eyes have blackened pupils and grey around the lining. Storybook's
symbol is an open book with a rose and pen next to it. The rose crosses over the
front of the book whereas the pen hides behind the far side. Her magnet hoof is
marked with a deep red heart.
Story: Storybook loves smaller things. Whereas the other ponies go to the
islands or resort to be in heaven, storybook reads or watches the grass in the
wind. Out of the books she reads, Storybook's favorite genre is the faerie tale.
She just loves the thoughts of adventure and true love! Small things fascinate
and thrill her, bringing happiness at every turn. Because of this she's often
thought to be ditzy or distractible, but she doesn't mind. She'll just keep
loving what she loves and popping up as she must.
eye-catching design features an exciting combination of food
and flowers. As predicted, this design received the
most votes among the people who submitted entries and
everyone else. "Different" and
"refreshing" describe this well-planned design.
