diversity is magic by astrophrenia diversity is magic by astrophrenia
my own personal human!mane six headcanons

look i finished a project gosh

(if you're wondering: fluttershy is of persian descent, twilight sparkle is korean, rainbow dash is south american [didn't think of a specific country or anything], pinkie pie is african american, and both rarity and applejack are caucasian, but obviously very different ends of the spectrum)

Twilight is korean? marry me. I think Rarity's design it's the best out there. It fits her character.

Muslim women dress the way they do to stay modest and out of a man's gaze; wearing something made out of silk wouldn't be very modest.

It's an indulgence, sort of.  A 'fancy' type of wear.

My stance on diversity of the mane six, I'm all for it. If some one chooses to make human ponies all white, that's fine too. Just don't hate on others when they choose to mix it up. 
P.S. five seconds ago I was just picturing Fluttershy being a Muslim before seeing this.
Amazing work! Keep it up. Adorable Girl Anime Emoji (Kawaii Wink) [V6]

Woo! Always favs for Fluttershy in a hijab - it's my headcanon for her and I love it. You've got the same idea as I do about Dashy, too, and your art is pretty, so much favs!

Even if they are fighters. Nearly every single hero or heroine of mine are actually of foreign nationalities and in the case of some are of foreign religions.

welp

i was under the impression when you commented on my twi that that you MIGHT NOT HAVE BEEN a racist piece of trash BUT I GUESS I WAS WRONG THEN

yeah protip, i live in toronto and friendships like this are not only possible but pretty common depending on your location and it r e a l l y says a LOT about your white-normative worldview that political correctness was the first thing that came to mind when you saw this

I love humanized ponies. And you know what makes it even better? It's up to the discretion of the artist to use their imagination and choose how they will look because we will probably never see them humanized canonically on the show.
But I'll say something. I have always, since the very beginning, seen Rarity as a black woman. Why? Honestly, I don't have a particular reason, I just do.
You know, seeing Fluttershy wearing a hijab seems just seems really cool to me. I personally would have never been able to come up with something like that.
In the end, I really don't care what color the artist chooses to make them. As long as it's inoffensive and fun, I'm happy. Nice picture. Keep up the good work. :)

Joke's on you. There's the MLP movie, "Equestria Girls" which has humanized the pony characters and they're all multicolored caucasian people. It's gorgeous.

What the hell is that suppose to mean. What's bland about it? How is it a bad thing? And in case you forgot, an European lifestyle is exactly the kind of lifestyle the ponies have.

HEY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Europe does have muslims, asians and black people. as well as jews. Your argument is invalid.

Wolfcho Featured By Owner Jan 17, 2015
Who live like Europeans do, or are you implying these races and types of people are too stupid and not adaptable enough to adapt a new lifestyle. Clearly Europe didn't originate any of their stuff, so what the hell makes them any representatives of Europe. They're not Europeans, they just live there and that's it. Must hate their own homelands, I guess. I know I wouldn't want to live in Africa, India or the Middle East. Those places are like a nightmare.
