The 4th character to join the MY LITTLE PONY BISHOUJO series lineup is the always-stylish Rarity! She’s been beautifully rendered by BISHOUJO series illustrator Shunya Yamashita.

Her hair’s been specially painted with a gradient to make it gleam in the light and her high heels are made with a clear material to showcase her beautifully slim legs. If you pay close attention, you’ll discover gem-like adornments throughout the sculpt.

Rarity’s pony form is painted a pearly color to showcase her sophisticated nature with her most noticeable aspect being the eyelashes - they’re more voluminous than any other pony.
