I was recently catching up on season 5 of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic when I saw possibly my favourite episode ever: “Party Pooped”. You may already know that Pinkie Pie is my favourite pony (I recently did a Closet Cosplay post about how to dress in outfits inspired by her), but did you also know that she is totally my spirit animal? Here are the reasons why:
1) She plans the best parties.
As an event planner by trade (shameless self-plug as usual: Kristin Glass Events), I take so much inspiration from Pinkie Pie. She truly believes that there is nothing the right party can’t fix, and so far she has certainly been proven right!
2) She’ll always go the extra mile.
Like, all the way to Yakyakistan if necessary.
3) She is obnoxiously perky, but in a good way.
My friends accuse me of the same – but I really believe it is a good way to be. Who doesn’t like a little fun?
4) She is ridiculously optimistic.
Always believing the best in people is definitely a trait that Pinkie Pie and I share… unless we are very sure that something is just not right, like that time that Pinkie didn’t trust the smiles of the ponies in that village.
5) She obsesses over the details.
Her party planning cave is full of little tidbits of information like favourite flavours of ice cream and activities for every pony in town. This is a treasure trove of information that I just wish I had about everyone I know!
I am such a fan of this little pony, and I like to think that we’re a lot alike. I recently had a pin made to commemorate my love for Pinkie Pie:
I’ve got some extras available, so if you’re interested in purchasing one for $5 CAD plus shipping, drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
What pony (or, you know, other fictional character) would you say is your spirit animal? Let me know in the comments!
