Wavy mane is wavy =3
Her hair is becoming Celesta-ish! Sweet! :D...Well, not sweet for all those people who made customs and stuff with her earlier hair, but...Yeah...
Luna wavy hair? What?
Well shit. That aint a silky mane at all! Thats a wavy mane!
I am inclined to approve of this development for it pleases me.
She got a bit bigger and regained her starry hair... humm.
Oh my god that MAAAAAAAAAAAAA-Seriously, this is the greatest thing ever, Luna aged! (presumably) and Twilight is wearing a wizard costume for halloween. Oh man I am so pumped, this episode is going to be amazing. I just- Gah! I can't get over how cool Luna looks now, I am fanboy-ing so hard.
SWEET. So her mane and tail are starry again?Hah, I love Twilight's fake beard.
Well, good to see she wants to look like her sister. Maybe that will turn to be a bad thing, who knows?
Twilight put on her robe and wizard hat.Also, Luna looks more royal now. That's okay.
She looks a bit different. Her mane is now immaterial..ly like Celestia's.
By Twilight's beard!
I seriously am unable to ʸᵃʸ loud enough. LUNA!ʸᵃʸ
About time Luna appears
I really like her.... Mane?
Oh I hope she still looks like little cute Luna...I love how she looks but still...
Oh my god, look at that fence! It doesn't have the little heart-shaped knobs on its posts anymore! We must discuss the ramifications! :)
This is going to be the best episode ever.
Bearded Twilight is now canon.Artists, commence drawing hilarious comics.
She doesn't look much bigger to me, but yeah, that's an interesting development with her hair.Yeah, I think I'm okay with that.
Twilight dressing as a wizard for Nightmare Night.So adorkable!
Wanna bet that egophiliac is off somewhere making the YES gesture after seeing this?
Eh... liked her old hairstyle better, but I guess this works.
NOW EVERYONE CHANGE YOUR LUNA DRAWINGS TO MAGICAL WAVY MANES.As for Twilight, if it wasn't for the beard it would pretty much be Trixie :P
Spike is dressed as...a dragon?
Oh my God she looks great!!!And she's happy! Well, she's smiling <3!!! Saturday can't come any faster, FASTERRRR!!!!
GAAAAH I CANT WAIT 1 MORE DAY after all the hype this episode better be damn good...
Luna must be using the same shampoo Celestia uses.
>Spike dressed as a dragon>Wut
TWO DAYS?! WHY MUST YOU TAKE SO LONG TO PASS?!!!!
What the? another pic?! ok plus I saw a typo
I really like her mane!There's also another screenshot floating around on ponibooru...http://www.ponibooru.org/post/view/73801
I love Luna's new look.
and wait a second is luna's mane wavy/ see though... DISCUSS
I've Been ninja'd! By the way, on TV Tropes I have declared the pirate kid to be "Sparrow".There, we have a name for him. Lets be done with it and move on.
A-a-a-a-a! Spike dressed as dragon!"You should see the look on your faces... Priceless!"
That mane is soooo much win.It makes Luna look more regal and equal in status to Celestia. And if possible, cuter than she was before.LUUUUUNNNNNNAAAAAA!!!
In the words of Rainbow Dash "oh my gosh oh my gosh oh my gosh oh my gosh!"
YESYESYESYESYES!Also: Oh come ON just spent hours carefully picking out colors for Luna's mane and carefully drilling holes into ebony (harder than it sounds, sorry bad pun) and using crappy superglue which is now all over my hands and now they Change the mane.Hmph.
*screams in absolute joy* HER MANE!! HER STATURE!!! I CAN'T HANDLE IT, TOO MUCH JOY!
Im not going to lie, i think luna lost some weight =P
Wow another Colt?! The male population of Ponyville is slowly being revealed!
The great and powerful saprkle? i think that sparkle may be spelled wrong.
The Great & Powerful Trixie: That's very flattering how you have chosen to dress as The Great and Powerful Trixie this year Sparkle. However I would like to remind you that The Great and Powerful Trixie currently does not sport a beard.
This episode's not 'til Saturday?But.... I WANT IT NAO!
First thing that came to mind when I saw Twilight was, "Oh my gosh Its pony Gandalf"
2 Days. 2 DAYS! /)^3^(\
Dammit... not sure if this is going to hurt or improve my Rincewind fanfic...
Luna should get a song. We haven't had one of those for a while.
Now I will sleep until saturday! =D
I really like her... mane?I hope this is gonna be her new, more adult/Celestia-ish design and not just some sort of Halloween costume ("And this year, I disguise myself as Nightmare Moon... I can't see what could possibly go wrong!")
This saturday. It's Spike... in... DRAGONCEPTION
When I thought Luna couldn't get any cuter :D
Don't think that's a fence in picture 1; think that's the balcony rail at twilight's treehouse. see how high up they are?Fence in picture 2 has heart carving.
Yo dawg, I heard you like dragons...
She may be great and powerful, but are those stars technically accurate? Also Very happy that Luna did some growing up during the time away:)
A dragon dress as a dragon.. and no one has made a Inception joke, allow me AHEM! Dracoception. Oh and another"So Twilight, I heard you like dragons. So put your dragon in a dragon costume so you can drag on, your dragon, while he's draggin'.
Luna looks lovely (of course), but there's just something about "Twi with a beard" that my head just refuses to wrap itself around.
I'm okay with this!
Ha... Twilight and Spike really stretched out from their usual roles for their costumes, didn't they? At least Twilight decided to cross-dress with the awesome Gandalf beard.And the bells totally trump Trixie's hat.
OMG! Spike Is a Dragon!!and Luna looks awesome :D But I will miss the old hair : / But other than that! GREAT! MY BODY IS READY! And Gandalf Twilight is So AWesome I can't even start to explain it! :D
Twilight dressed as Gandalf, Spike dressed as a dragon... WHAT IS THIS WORLD COMING TO?!Also, I preferred Luna's old hair, but this is still epic.
Luna is back and hotter then ever...I stand by my statement
luna is the cause of my man-squee.also, twilight would make the perfect gandalf
Her hair is becoming magical, our little woona is growing *sob*
Oh my god, this means everyone have been drawing her with the "wrong" man ALL THIS TIME
Oh god, I just thought. The amount of Luna art, music, videos etc that is going to arrive after this episode will be insane. She appeared for 10 seconds in one episode and she's one of the most popular characters in this fandom.
spike dressed as a dragon? DRAGONCEPTION!!!!!!!luna with wavy hair? now she's about 20% coolertwilight with a beard? THOU SHALL NOT PASS!random colt with a sword? SO WEAPONS DO EXIST IN EQUESTRIA
@ecmc1093Spike dressed as a dragon. Let the inception jokes commence
*Hopes Twilight's costume will fuel Trixie related art* =)
THEY CHANGED HER MANE! THEY CHANGED IT, NOW IT SUCKS!LUNA IS RUINED!LIFE SUCKS!I HATE THIS SHOW NOW!RAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGE!!!!111!j/k
This looks promising. Luna's hair looks different? Fine by be I guess.
Rejoice, friends! The return of our true princess is nigh! All glory to the New Lunar Republic!
Luna looks thinner tooMabye thats just me lol
Screw the Rules I have translucent hair!!
BY TWILIGHT'S BEARD! Spike dressed up as a dragon. Also DAT LUNA! My face is ready for Saturday.
Has no one here noted the possibility that the little guy in image 2 is the true identity of the infamous "Al Capony" from the Comic-Con poster?
Still no sign of Abacus!
OH MY GOODNESS WHO IS THAT LITTLE PIRATE PONYWHO IS ITBECAUSE IT'S ADORABLE.
What are the chances that new pirate pony is gonna have a name before the episode even airs.Now I return to what I wanted to say...'ahemLuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuunnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!
luna is now mah waifu...okey, im just kidding here (*sob* cant touch her mane)
I wonder if this confirms paint-patterned coats for the pony population rather than all the ponies being one solid color or if the spots are just part of the costume.
I hope Patches there really is missing an eye, it'd be cool to have a pony with a disability on..the...show...oh right Derpy
I don't know if Luna's new look is so much "a year of growth" so much as it is "the only time we saw her before, it was daytime." I'd bet that she always has wavy mane at night
WHY IS SATURDAY SO FAR AWAY!!!!!?????
I surprised more people aren't making a mention of spike's "For Halloween, I Am Going as Myself" thing he has going on.http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/ForHalloweenIAmGoingAsMyself
As Luna's colors and such are similarly different, it would make sense that she's dressing up as Nightmare Moon for the night.
Also I shall now ship Patches with Scootaloo!
@crazyredemui believe he's a cow, not ponysee the skin pattern?
Twilight Sparkle is . . . Gandalf?
She's getting her Nightmare mane back? Cool.Also: Twilight's costume seems kinda...fail.
@StargazerI thought it was just one of the CMC in an uber-cool pirate getup...And now, to return to what I wanted to say... *ahem*.........YESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYES!!!!!
That looks less like Luna and more like celestia dressed as luna. ...
@DemoseDagnabbit! I meant to make mention of that...Guess he's just compensating for something? Cause the outfit looks like it's supposed to be a full-grown dragon...
Twilight is supposed to be Merlin I think.
@killingspreedoomOf course weapons exist in Equestria. For everyone who thought Equestria was 100% peaceful at all times, I'd like to point out that Celestia has a royal guard. Why does a goddess need highly-trained combat ponies if there's no attempts on her life? xD
I figured they'd give Luna wavy hair. I'm wondering if the explanation for the whole aging thing is gonna be like: Luna's missed time is catching up with her. Soon, maybe by the third season, Luna will be just as big as Celeastia.
*Get recent influx of Pirate pony fan art**Pirate pony Nightmare Night costume*I sense a conspiracy...
Anyone think maybe.... that's celestia in a luna costume?
Bleh. I liked her old mane better, but whatever.
A really love that spike is dressed as...himself.Also, yay for the return of cosmic hair.
Spike dresses up as a dragon. Dragonception?
I had a feeling they'd release a couple pics of this episode sooner or later.
awesome... can't wait :D
8DDD*Slowly exploding from the inside out. Will likely explode a second time before the day's end.*
yay starry space mane!
Wait... is Spike dressed as a dragon? Silly Spike, Hallowe... er, Nightmare Night doesn't work like that.
Loving the wavy mane. Wonder if this canonizes the idea about an alicorn's age is tied with their magic. Luna seems to have grown quite a bit in the short time since we was purified. She also looks like she's aged way more than the ~1 year since her first appearance, which would be explained by her age being connected to her increasing magic levels.
@mrjoshmacintosh And you can't type conspiracy without piracy.
Of all the screenshots that have been released, these are the greatest.
Hey, did anypony else notice this?http://images3.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20110720164943/mlp/images/0/06/My_Little_Pony_Friendship_is_Magic_Comic_Con_2011_poster.jpgCompare that new character to the one in the right of the balloon. They did say that it was going to be in season 2...
Spikes costume is amazing.But I can't get over twilight the grey./)^3^(\
They made Luna more Celestia-ish, and NMM-ish, and less cute.I think she looks great, but there are many many MANY pics out there that are not really accurate anymore.Maybe her mane changed back to translucent after she started raising the moon again in the nights?
Weirdly enough, I've checked this image side by side with a lot of other images of Luna... She doesn't look any thinner or taller in this than in any other picture, official or otherwise.Her hair's different, yeah, but her body looks pretty much the same.Also, this is me hoping that the wavy hair is actually just part of a costume, because if it isn't, I'm going to have to go back and change all of the pictures I drew of Luna...>_<
I really hope Scootaloo's costume is Rainbow Dash. That would be the best.
Um, is our favorite dragon going as a dragon?
@gloriouxHe's a pinto pony, I think.And Luna is growing up! Yay!
I like the suggestion that Luna's mane goes ethereal in the night, but it's just as likely a permanent art change.As for Spike, he could easily be in costume as a *famous* dragon. I'm sure Twilight is someone out of a book, historical or otherwise.
@brilliantspecter Can you do that? Can you explode TWICE?
Never before have I felt such excitement from two Screenshots, I better cut this comment short otherwise it's going to be 3 Pages long. AGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH-
@CX4EverThat doesn't look like any of the CMC to me at all. I also want to know if the brown spot around the eye is part of the costume or are they allowing facial marks on ponies. ( spots )~ joins in with YESYESYES's ~
spike being unoriginal, and dressing as a dragon.
I don't think luna is thinner I just think she is growing into her adult body and I like it
Maybe the pirate pony is the unidentifiable character from the Comiccon poster?
I think the kid is actually a calf. Only the cows had spots so far in the entire series. I'm not sure how I'd feel if the ponies were starting to be drawn more closer resembling actual ponies...Calf for sure!
WAIT I GOT IT!!Maybe Luna's mane changes to be wavy star stuff at night, but is normal hair during the daytime!!That holds true for s1e1, s1e2, and this upcoming episode too!
MAYBE MOVING CELESTIAL BODIES (DUDUM) DOES THAT YOUr mANE GUYSES HEY
Looks like I'm not alone in saying "I REALLY like her mane!"Actually, her mane being all starry again was the first thing I noticed about this. It reminds me of how she (spoiler) ended up in Past Sins(/spoiler).Here's betting that these pics launch a boatload of fanarts with Luna's new form for tonight's drawfriend.
Ten-to-One odds of Lily saying something along the lines of 'It's the wicked mare of darkness,' Rose fainting, and Berry Punch being OPPP in over-drive.
*looks at screenshot*Well, forget about show-accurate hair, even if molded, on the toys...And, more like Twilight Gandalf or something. I'll be looking forwards to seeing this episode... unfortunately, I'm busy while it's running, so it'll have to be off of YouTube later in the day.
first screenshot i exploded!second screenshot i exploded again!you CAN explode twice!
Awesome, I'm really excited for this one!
maybe her mane changed because she has grown up
I love that Luna's mane is made of space again. And Spike, dude, what the hell? You can't go dresses as yourself. Well, I could see Trixie doing it, but no one else should follow her example.
@Rainbow SmashDo you really need to change them? I mean, it's not like a character redesign suddenly negates the fact that she used to look like that.
I told myself I wouldn't look at any spoilers!But I couldn't resist :(
Oh my lord I love how Spike is wearing a dragon costume. He's such a hipster.
Spike dressed as a dragon!Luna has wavy hair!Theres a pirate pony!SATURDAY IS GOING TO BE AWESOME!I really like the idea that Luna is getting older and her hair really explains why the other ponies are scared of her
Her mane isn't different usually, she's just dressed as Celestia for Halloween.
Yo! We heard you like dragons so we put a dragon in a dragon costume!
EEEEEEEEEEE her mane is so pretty!
I like Luna's new look. And Twilight's Gandalf Costume....Yo dawg, I herd u liek dragons, so I put a... *gets shot*
The new Luna with the fancy hair looks great... but I really liked her look with her old hair. Oh well, I'll go with whatever Studio B decides to do, I assume they know best
No........I don't like that they changed her :'cNow all of my customs, my Halloween costume, and my Ask-Princess-Luna tumblr are nulled and void.I'm displeased.
Twilight's dressed as Merlin? Nice. Or will that be "Marelin"?You know what, I'm calling it know. Marelin. I bet that's what they're going to say. $20 on Marelin. Anyone want to raise?And Luna looks SO ADORABLE!!! *squeal* I WANT! I NEED!!!
Spike's a dragon! xD
@Those people suggesting Luna's hair is only magical at night:Explain to me how Celestia keeps her hair magical at night through the Grand Galloping Gala.@At the brony who said that Luna started using Celestia's shampoo:I loled, then started imagining what would happen if the mane6 got into said shampoo. Somepony draw this, starting with Twilight Sparkle!
@MikeCX approves your theory.@LunaI'd make that 20-1 odds...But we all know that's not you! We'll be rooting for you out there! Go show em!Discord says: hi and don't forget who put the 'Nightmare' in Nightmare Night...Whatever that means.
Twilight stole and Trixie's clothes and altered them so no one would recognize them. And Spike – well – welcome to the Redundancy Department of Redundancy.
Spike is wearing a dragon costume.*Struggles to understand the logic*
@Bugsydor"Explain to me how Celestia keeps her hair magical at night through the Grand Galloping Gala."MAGIC. I AIN'T GOTTA EXPLAIN SHIT. =P
maybe it's a magical halloween costume, She's going as nightmare moon.
@Those who assume Celestia's hair follows the same rulez as Luna's:We don't really know, do we? Let's hope they explain it all in the episode.
I liked her mane a lot more before..Oh well :cI'm sure the episode will be awesome, regardless!
I saw the Twimagican coming. It totally makes sense!
Loving Luna's new look!
@JohnYou're on. $50 says it's an ancient magician called Maregan.
@FlutterfanCelestia help us. What will become of us when she leaks the shampoo out to the public? Then EVERYONE will have weird wavy hair that blows in an invisible wind!Come to think of it, it'd be kinda funny to replace my brother's hair gel with that stuff...
Hmm, is nightmare night named in 'honor' of nightmare moon? That would make things pretty tense for Luna.
LLLLLLLLLLLLLUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Well, Twilight doesn't seem too unnerved about Luna's gruesome reputation.
oh,the Pirate filly's so cute.and...spike is dressed as a drog.Yo dawg,I hear you like dragons so we Dargonception.
In Lesson Zero, Spike said they dropped Twilight's cape a the dry cleaning. CONTINUITY
Luna: ARE YOU A WIZARD.
I'm liking this design of Luna. Also looks like she grew a little since we last saw her.
Other costume ideas? I think Rarity would be the Bride of Frankenstien (or whatever the pony version it) so she can have beehive hair.RD as a vampire? If Pinkie has ANYTHING to to with cupcakes and knives I think you guys will hear me screaming from the UK... But I would suspect she'd go as a pumpkin.
Spike's costume reminds me a bit of what wingless spyro would be like.
@crazyredemuCongratulations, you have just named a new background pony.Patches is now the name of that pirate pony.
@elite guy 94Haha I didn't realize her hair was wavy until I saw your comment :3
That's why it's been so long between Luna's appearances.Mare had to get herself correct.
IBSDCJDJKCHBLKJD,ABKCJNBEKDF LUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUNNNNNNNAAAAAAAA!!!! SDBVKZSJHCBKJH DFMJGV IM SOOOOOOOOOOO FUCKING EXCITED!!!!!
I'm so happy Luna has her astral mane. It's just like I imagined, and it's perfect.
Now that I've calmed down a little, I would like to say that I approve of her mane. I would also like to add that I probably won't be able to sleep tonight because I'll be too exited for the Luna episode.
OMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMG--And I won't be able to watch it until late sunday night. I hate everyone and everything.
Luna's mane!! And she looks happy!! And Twilight doesn't seem creepy anymore.lol, and Spike's costume is a dragon >.>
I demand more TwiLuna.That is all.
W00t. Hell yeah Im pumped for this next episode. Luna looks a bit older though.
She's gone dressed as herself. =D
1. Luna's mane?2. Merlin Twilight?3. Dragon Spike?4. Pirate pony?5. ???6. PROFIT!
@JamesBobYeah, I was wondering why Twilight would need a cape...Also, I cant' wait until Saturday!
This episode is already a billion times cooler than season 1, but only 40% cooler than season 2 so far.
I just finished a Luna drawing this morning and I find this...Well, at least her mane loos stunning.
