After some very intense brainstorming done with the help of my great and unwavering friend , I've managed to come up with what, to me, seems to be a workable revamped version of my poor pony self. To me, it seems to depart from the things that likened Starbright to Shining Armor most of all, to the point where only a severely intoxicated individual would mistake one for another, which was exactly the goal of this revamp. Here is an altered version of the very first image of Starbright ever created, revised to have the new colours: sta.sh/0bvkvngh71a .
So, what do you think? Yay or nay? And yes, I know that the old colours were good... Trust me, I didn't want to change them either. But it was either that or constantly be mistaken for Shining Armor or called a knockoff.
There's also the question of how to introduce this change "in-universe", as this is still the very same pony who used to be white and blue just a couple days ago, and all the depictions of him in previous colours are still "canon" as well. I have a few ideas, as I have already said yesterday. But if any of you have any serious ideas you could possibly share, I'd welcome that gladly.
