Strawberry Shortcake

Mercury from Milky Way and the Galaxy Girls

Milky Way and the Galaxy Girls is a cartoon concept that was pitched to Hasbro by Lauren Faust. Although Hasbro passed on it, it eventually morphed into the highly successful My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. MWGG is inspired by the 90’s Strawberry Shortcake series, with a dash of the anime Sailor Moon, with the girls as the personification of different planets. Mercury’s winged sneaker-skates propel her through the cosmos in a shimmery silver flash at the speed of light.

Raspberry Torte from Strawberry Shortcake

Raspberry Torte (voiced by Ingrid Nilson) is a character from the Strawberry Shortcake franchise.  Originally known as Raspberry Tart, she picks up her role in the 2009 reboot of the series as owner of the Fresh Fashions boutique and a friend of Strawberry Shortcake.  Raspberry Torte has bright pink hair and wears green and pink clothes reminiscent of the berry that gives her her name.  Finding an exact match for her pink and green dress would be tough, so layer a green shirt under a pink dress and bolero to achieve a similar look.  Finding her magenta Mary Jane shoes might also be tricky, so focus on finding a pair of shoes that match the aesthetic as closely as possible.  Hot pink t-straps or a pair of pink flats can both do the trick.
