A Tale from NDK by MLP-Silver-Quill A Tale from NDK by MLP-Silver-Quill
The story you have just read is true. The likenesses have been changed to protect the Cosplayers.

I've been working on this since the end of September. An exhaustive effort, but I really wanted to share this story. It's nice to celebrate a positive event, even on a small scale.

I should note that the real bookmarks I bought don't look like those in this comic. You'll have to take my word that they look awesome. I really debated on what to do. Scanning or tracing them felt like art theft, and so I turned to the members of the MLP Vector Club for inspiration.

Thanks go to the following artists who helped make this possible:
Applejack by maxmontezuma
Derpy Hooves by Mihaaaa
Doctor Whooves/Time Turner by Silentmatten
Fluttershy by Flizzick
Pinkie Pie by Are-you-jealous
Princess Celestia by Santafer
Princess Luna also by Santafer
Rainbow Dash by BIGCCV
Rarity by MysteriousKaos
Twilight Sparkle by Yanoda

I also created background silhouettes of ponies using Vector Club works as a base. Thanks guys!

Gangam style is hard to draw. Fortunately, Shmarky knows how to pose dancing ponies.

And because I couldn't hope to draw a crowd the size of NDK's scope without going insane, I want to thank these artists for supplying silhouette vectors:
Silhouetttes by raspete
More Silhouettes by raspete
And other silhouettes by Dana_cz

By the way, if anyone happens to know a website for the bookmark artist, I'd love to give them some advertising.

You can see photos of the real NDK Cosplay crews at my friend's gallery.

Hope you enjoy!

Update: Even though this didn't make it on to Equestria Daily, I am still over-the-moon proud of this piece and grateful to all the commentators and people who faved this work. Some people have posted of this on Derpibooru and KnowYourMeme.com, which is pretty rare given that it features an OC. I really appreciate that people are eager to share this work and hopefully folks take away a positive message. Thanks a million!

That's a wonderful story. Awesome comic too, but I'm slightly biased: I love reference cramming, even if they sometimes get past me...

Starscream is never going to leave Megatron alone after this.

You mean the same Starscream who got his butt kicked by the pretty pony pegasus with a rainbow mane?
