Are you sure you didn't get mixed up with someone else?
Also, you're saying that she's in a dark shade of purple. Well, I recalled looking up a wiki page about NMM, before this comment thing even started, and it said that she was in a very dark cornflower blue. Look, I'm not saying that you're wrong or anything. For all I know, you probably got yours from a wiki that was different from the one I looked up from. There are a bunch of types of wikis, you know.
I'll even put the link of the one I got this info from below, in case your wondering which one I meant.
The night has come ponies. Now bow down for your new princess!!!
