Poor Rarity. Even though at first glance, she seems to lead a pretty cushy life I think in actuality her work is far more stressful than many people (and ponies) give her credit for, or at least I know how my life tends to treat me when I'm juggling my "day job", freelance art and sewing side work and multiple artistic projects besides. It's not what I would ever describe as "cushy" or glamorous at all; it's difficult!

A random aside that I think everyone who knows me well is aware of, but I seriously adore Rarity when she's wearing her sewing glasses. I've said it before but honestly, a little dressmaker/couturier cartoon unicorn, toiling away at her tiny sewing machine with her adorable red glasses.... it's just too endearing for words, really. :heart:

"8 more dresses.. I bwah, duh, gah.. bwahaha!!"   0_0   Oh I so love Rarity for how she can become so stressed out, reminds me very much of me when I had really busy days at work.  I think Art of the Dress is my second favourite Rarity episode after Sweet and Elite, it's so hard to choose!! If it weren't for Art of the Dress, we would not have Vinyl Scratch or 20% cooler, so it's another reason it's up high on my favourite episode list.

Well, that's the hard truth of glamour. You have to work hard to live the high-road.

Aw, she looks so cute. Poor Rarity. Stress is certainly not a pleasant thing (I'm lucky enough that I haven't had to deal with a lot of it, yet. At least, not work related stress with the hassles of day to day living). Nobody said life was easy, right? ^^;

Also love her glasses here. I hope the writers don't forget that she wears them, as I think it looks so adorable when she has them on, I think. :aww:

Awesome job on this, friend. Hope you make some more art of her wearing glasses, sometime! :D
