A Season 5 picture and outfit for Roxy?

I doubt it.

Una Di Noi’s OP got this before I did, and she found this image on deviantART. The person who posted this image on the site claims it’s official stock art, but I don’t think so.

As a comment on the post rightfully pointed out, someone at Rainbow would be breaking a very strict rule by releasing this art for purposes other than promotion before the start of the season, and since Season 5 art for Roxythe season is set to debut in 2012, it’s highly unlikely Rainbow would be engaging in active promotion now. Most companies like to do it a short while before the actual series launches, and the case is probably the same for Rainbow.

Also, you may notice that the model for this drawing is different from the model of what Rainbow actually chooses for it’s fairies. They have a set model from them all. If you want, just compare the final Believix transformation poses for Bloom and Tecna. They’re the same with a reversal of direction.

Since this model of Roxy is plumper and fuller, I don’t think this is official stock art. Also, the fingers are oddly shaped, and the highlights at the end of her hair are gone. Unless, of course, Rainbow has decided to go through a random mood swing and has changed the art without notice. It’s uncommon, though. If they wanted to change their style of drawing, they’d release some of it to see what fans made of it. And we haven’t seen this style in the Season 5 promo video.

Based on all of this evidence, I’m filing this as a rumor and nothing more for now. Let’s wait for an official conformation next year.

Okay, so the OP from Una Di Noi replied to my comment and mentioned the artist claimed the outfit was official, not the model or the picture as a whole.

I’m still going to keep this filed as a rumor, until we get an official conformation. As has been the case with transformations many times before, often, we see a link to a picture that claims an official transformation or outfit in this case, and it turns out to be false.

Only time will tell. We’ve got to be patient, and unfortunately for me, that’s something I’m inherently bad at. 😉

Winx Club shouldn’t have another new fairy.

Winx Club has evolved over the years. Those of us who’ve been with the series since the very beginning have seen it happen in front of our eyes. The outfits, the transformations, the hair, the animation style…everything changes, because if anything stays stagnant, the series will become boring.

Another thing that’s changed along with all of this is the number of fairies. Recall. In the beginning, when Bloom formed the Winx, we only had five fairies. Bloom, Stella, Flora, Musa, and Tecna. A small bunch aiming to stop evil from taking over Magix.

Along came Aisha. (I just realized something: I never did call her Layla, but that’s for another post.) Just over one season, the girls had become so close to one another that it was hard for some of them (ahem, Stella) to welcome a new member to their group. Bloom has to once again clearly state that Aisha is a member of the Winx. And there we go. Six fairies now.

We then had the third season, and the movie, during which we see how strong the bond between the girls has become and how they are willing to do anything, even kind of die, for their friends. For those that don’t understand, this fact is most apparent when we see Tecna, who isn’t even from Andros, walk herself into danger to close the portal to the Omega Dimension to save Aisha’s planet. In doing so, she doesn’t die, but earns her Enchantix.

And then came the fourth season. Along with that came Roxy, the “last” fairy on Earth. Roxy brought a different kind of personality into the Winx club, a fun, stubborn, and rebellious one, kind of like a mash up of the personality of certain girls. We still do not have an official confirmation that she’s a member of the Winx Club, and I wouldn’t like to suppose anything, because I don’t do that.

If she is a member of the Winx Club, that would bring the total to seven fairies. And that, I think, is a warning bell for Rainbow.

You know how you can put some pebbles into a jar and have it half-full? You can keep adding more and more pebbles, but there comes a time where when and if you add more, that jar is just going to overflow. You can’t push it anymore.

I think it’s a bit like that with Winx Club. I think Rainbow has crammed enough people with enough different and sometimes clashing personalities into one group, increasing it from a mere five to not-massive-and-yes-only-two-more-but-that-still-makes-a-difference seven.

I was thinking this out the other day…and I’ve come up with a few major reasons another fairy shouldn’t be introduced into Winx Club.

Screentime is a huge issue with a show with as many characters as Winx Club. We have the Winx, which have kept growing throughout the seasons, we’ve got the Trix, we’ve got the Specialists, we’ve got our villians…the list goes on and on, doesn’t it? You’ll notice that most of the time, the series focuses on the Winx entirely, and if another new fairy was brought into this group of seven (assuming Roxy’s one of the Winx), how on earth would the people at Rainbow focus enough on each of the girls?

Character development and characterization is somewhat related to the above topic. If they can’t focus enough on each of the girls, they can’t have character development. Each fairy in the Winx has their own personality, and we know most of their personalities. However, you can see that it varies. We know Tecna’s highly logical and doesn’t like showing emotion, and we have seen few instances where she does. But to me, it still appears as though she’s a character with the emotional range of a teaspoon. There’s something we haven’t had enough development on.

Backstory is something I feel the producers, writers, and pretty much the entire team at Rainbow have been partial on. We know a lot about Bloom. In fact, I’d say we know way too much. The entire series revolves around her. You know, I can say frankly that when the first season ended, I was afraid we were heading to Mary-Sue status. But thankfully, the Charmix and Enchantix stopped that just in time. Do we know about Flora? Tecna? We know about Musa’s parents and her childhood, but that’s pretty much it. We know Stella’s mother’s name was Luna…and that’s it.

Do you think it’s alright if another fairy is introduced into the Winx Club? If not, why?

Roxy’s Convergence

We all know that Roxy isn’t a very powerful fairy, even with the White Circle. We’ve also heard about Season 5 currently being in production. If you haven’t, check out this post on Una di Noi by the OP. It seems as if Season 5 is definitely on it’s way.

Now, Roxy, being less powerful than the other Winx girls, could surely use a helping hand with her power. Convergence might be the key. We’ve all seen convergence in earlier episodes of Winx Club, and the amazing power it has. Maybe we’ll see Roxy converging with the others in Season 5 if she’s a character. To be honest, I’m surprised she hasn’t done so with the girls in Season 4 already.

Keeping the convergence in mind, here’s my list of spells Roxy could use in convergence with the other Winx girls:

  1. Bloom & Roxy: Paw of the Dragon
  2. Stella & Roxy: Cheetah Light Speed
  3. Flora & Roxy: Butterfly Wind
  4. Layla & Roxy: Fishy Ocean
  5. Musa & Roxy: Harmony of parrots
  6. Tecna and Roxy: Logic of the owl

If you could come up with names for convergence spells, what would you choose? Comment and let me know!
