Gaaaah, keep trying to comment but got like a zillion things bobbing for my already-flimsy attention span.

Again, love this costume store. ^^ This entire scene has just been great... In particular like touches like the kid and the weird, random cameo from Chloe. The hell is she even doing?

Funnily enough Chloe's outfit here had a metric ton of back and forth from me. I just kept pushing the pen around trying to come up with a costume for her but nothing quite looked right.... Eventually settled on this weird ensemble which was heavily inspired by the DCAU Brainiac of all people. I think the mask was at some point going to be a poorly-drawn version of the Tom Hardy Bane mask too.

I should've gone for a French thing given her bear is apparently French. Maybe something like Enjorlas, I dunno. Would've been cool.

Other highlights of this page include that the store apparently sells Alex Rayne costumes judging by that coat (only JUST noticed Martin worked that in setting the page up) and has an "Adults only" section. In case you want to fight crime in a ball-gag. Which I only typed here as a joke but now sorta wanna work into the comics somehow. .... Funny part is that the page I'm drawing right now has the opportunity. And it's a Blues page.

Heh. Yeah, this is a page I'm pretty happy with. This whole subplot really is just weird and different but a great change of pace, at least from where I'm sitting.

Do kind of worry that Lillian might be coming off as too sour in the whole thing or like she's dragging the mood down, though. Not the intention by any means, and do have stuff planned with her to explore more in detail why exactly she's acting this way (though it shouldn't be too hard to gleam if you've been reading, really), but still, wonder if it might be kind of making her look bad that she's basically being a buzzkill in the middle of Alex and Laura's shenanigans.

And hey, always good getting to see Chloe again, isn't it? Yeah, this little cameo was outright written into the script. In general we've not exactly made it much of a secret we have plans for something of more substance with her as it relates to Militant Gold so yeah, kind of a nod at that, as well as just here for the joke of seeing Ada in costume and getting to have her pop up for the first time in awhile. Speaking of I need to do more in the way of making moves to get Militant Gold up and running.

Anyway, yeah. Think I've said about all I have to say, other than maybe to note that I don't know if Adam drew that wig hat thing on the far right to look like Peridot's hair but I sure colored it that way.

Alex and Laura are having fun and Lillian's upset, wonder what's going to happen next.
