Small fly with abdominal projections (would like to know names of both :)

I found this small fly in July on some thistles. It was so beautiful and looked as if it was made of porcelain. I've been unable to find out what it is by looking in my limited ID books and would be very grateful if someone could identify it.I would also very much like to know the function of the blue projections from its abdomen.

 

I've cropped the photos tightly to help ID.
