    Yup. I just did what you've occasionally done to me, and edited that in as you posted (although I didn't know that was Double Trouble).

    Seriously, it ain't just the colours - the design of the chestplate, shoulderpads, tiara and even the poker-straight hair are all matches for 'toon-Glimmer and not for toy-Glimmer. Only the silver boots and black hair seriously diverge from the 'toon-Glimmer design, and the shape of those in the toon-model are still closer to the DT prototype.

    EDIT:

    Typo. I meant spangly.

    Look at it on a "flat" plane from the front. The tiara is flat on 'toon-Glimmer's face, so [deliberately mis]read the "helmet" as a flat tiara, and you end up with round-topped straight, loose hair.

    [I didn't say it was identical, but given the toon's interpretation of the "Double Trouble tiara", a bad reference pic could lead to that conclusion...]
