Eee, It's So Sparkly by ClemiKinkajou Eee, It's So Sparkly by ClemiKinkajou
"Morin, your armor is amazing," the mare said randomly. "I mean it's different than anypony else's and it's made just for you. It's just so amazingly special!"

Morin Hoof laughed and looked at his companion. "Well, thank you. I actually like it a lot myself."

Clemi folded her ears and sighed softly. "I wish I had a set of armor for myself. I mean, I know I won't ever be good enough to be a royal guard, but... you know just for fun?" She bit her lower lip looking at him, "It's just so expensive."

Morin stood there for a few moments looking at just how sad this filly looked and he smiled. "Well I think I can help with that, come on."

The filly looked stumped as to what he could mean, but followed along anyway. "Morin, seriously, I don't want you to pay for it for me. It'll cost far too much and I can't let you do that."

"Don't worry, there's no money involved."

Now she was really confused but her curiosity was getting the better of her so she continued to follow the stallion. When they finally reached their destination at a blacksmith's shop, there was a large pile of something on a center table covered in a sheet.

He smiled and walked around behind it, "you ready?" Not really wanting to wait for an actual answer, Morin gripped the sheet with his teeth and ripped it off revealing the most sparkly, gorgeous bronze armor.

Clemi's eyes sparkled as she stared at the glistening metal, trailing over every detail. "Th... This is for, me?"

"This is for you." He smiled and nodded towards it. "Well go ahead, try it on you silly filly!"

With a squee of delight Clemi took to the task of putting the armor on. The helm felt weird as her hair slipped through the slot at the top, but it fit perfectly. No matter where she moved her head, the helm followed seamlessly. The breastplate fit like a well fitting shirt, and the shoes were just divine. Taking a few moments to look at herself in a mirror, the firelight from the forge was causing the polished metal to sparkle. "Eee, it's so sparkly!"


-----------------------------------------------------

*more random pony scenes before this* XD

This is a pic I've wanted to do for a while now actually. I've always liked how the armor for the Royal Guard ponies looked. I knew that Clemi would never be good enough quality to be a guard(she's a lover, not a fighter) but I still wanted to design a suit of armor for her. After seeing Rainbow Dash putting on the crystal armor in the new Crystal Fair song released as a season 3 preview, I decided now was the time.

Since her cutie mark was covered, I wanted to incorporate it into the design. Her normal cutie mark includes my tablet pen, 2 leaves, and an orange swirl. Both types of leaves are incorportated (The yellow on on her cutie mark is etched into the armor, the red one is the gem as well as the detail on the shoes and corners) as well as the swirl well naturally you can see just by looking at it.

Umm dunno what else to say but, enjoy everypony! I know I do X3


Edit: EEE! This was featured on Equestira Daily!! Thank you to whoever found/submitted this! X3 It is my first piece(that I know of) submitted to EQD! Featured in Drawfriend Stuff #506!

Really cool looking but I have to say the same thing I say about most pony Armor:
"The deadly flaw of cannon and most non-cannon pony armor: No belly armor. Remember the core rule of armor design: It does not matter how much armor you have if it is in the wrong place. Earth ponies and Pegasi get up on their hind hooves when attacking exposing their belly (which have no protection on most pony armor)"

While I understand the flaws when it comes to armor, as I've designed armor for many RP characters in the past, this isn't meant to be "functional" armor. Clemi is a lover not a fighter. While yes some pony armor should be more practical, she'll never be wearing this in battle. It's purely ornamental.

I'm normally not a fan of well fan made pony art, but this is absolutely amazing.
The sheer amount of details in the armor alone makes this stellar. But the shading is so well done and I love how it looks. Great piece indeed~

It's not her entire mane, just the top of her head really. If you lean your head forward when slipping on the helm, it slides in easier ^^

Just to let you know, this picture, the armour, inspired the thought of a kingdom, named Autumnfall, where guardsponies wear armour like that. This idea suddenly became an epiphany, and is being formed into a Fanfiction currently. Thank you, so very much for this brilliant picture. <3

Well thank you ^^; I really just themed the armor to suit her and her cutie mark which now isn't visible cause of the armor. I kinda meant to to be rather unique to her for that reason. But I'm glad you were inspired. X3

Naturally I feel I should credit you and link you to the fic (If you read fanfics), for being the accidental creator of the entire story to begin with. Lol.

I don't really read fics, but I'd give it a shot. I would prefer if some of the design of the armor was changed though, since this was meant to be unique to her. X3

So Clemi is a hyperactive little pony with the attention span of a gold fish? Based on her reaction to the armour I'd have to say the answer is yes...

Umm kinda? XD She has a somewhat large attention span, her special talent is drawing and painting. But it takes a lot of focus which shinies can often break... quickly. XD
