Rarity is a female unicorn pony and one of the main characters of My Little Pony Friendship is Magic. She is Sweetie Belle’s older sister and the subject of Spike’s long-term crush. Lauren Faust was inspired to create Rarity by her childhood toy G1 ponies Glory and Sparkler. Spike’s crush on Rarity was not planned out from the beginning. When Lauren Faust was writing Rarity’s introduction scene in the pilot, she wanted the audience to understand that she’s very beautiful even though she is visually very similar to the other ponies, except the style of her mane and her eyes and eyelashes.
To let the audience understand that she is beautiful, Faust made Spike become smitten with her, which developed into his crush on Rarity. Rarity’s eye design is less frequently used than most other designs: Lotus Blossom and Aloe share the same eye design as Rarity, including color, shape and design of upper and lower eyelashes. During running sequences, Lemon Hearts has the same eye shape as Rarity as well. Rarity’s dressmaking shop, the Carousel Boutique, is designed after a toy of the My Little Pony line sold by Hasbro.
In Lauren Faust’s “pitch bible” for the show, the boutique was named the Carousel Couture, and it specialized in carousel-inspired designs. In Sweet and Elite, Rarity states she was born in Ponyville. During The Cutie Mark Chronicles, Rarity retells her story of her life as a filly to the Cutie Mark Crusaders. Rarity daydreams in The Ticket Master about meeting Princess Celestia’s dashing “nephew” at the Grand Galloping Gala, with her fantasy culminating in marriage and induction into royalty. Sweetie Belle is introduced as Rarity’s little sister in Stare Master. Her clumsiness, paired with an insistent willingness to help, tests Rarity’s patience and she eventually asks Sweetie Belle to let her work in peace.
In Sisterhooves Social, Rarity and Sweetie Belle’s parents make a brief appearance. The two have a mid-American accent and are carefree, with personalities that are vastly different from Rarity’s. Rarity has a cat named Opalescence, who is supportive in Suited For Success. Jump to navigation Jump to search For other uses, see Tunnel of love. Tunnel of Love is the eighth studio album by Bruce Springsteen, released on October 9, 1987.
467 on their list of the 500 greatest albums of all time. The New York Times writer Jon Pareles states Tunnel of Love “turned inward, pondering love gone wrong. On the B-sides of vinyl and cassette singles, outtakes like “Lucky Man”, “Two for the Road” and a 1979 track, “Roulette” were included. The 1988 Springsteen and E Street Band Tunnel of Love Express tour would showcase the album’s songs, sometimes in arrangements courtesy of The Miami Horns. Irish filmmaker Meiert Avis directed the music videos for “Brilliant Disguise”, “One Step Up”, “Tougher Than the Rest”, and “Tunnel of Love”. The videos were shot on location in New Jersey, including Asbury Park.
