Yeah. Ropun's going INSANE on the costumes for this one. I went as over-the-top and detailed with that empress thing as I possibly could. I... think looking now on the dialog Martin might've wanted a jovial, jolly queen, but no. I went full, bloody empress. This party is just a brief respite before she begins her next conquest. I wanted to make her look like she could legitimately slaughter every other person in this comic on her way to killing Shao Kahn.

Also on the costume selection we've got BP-Jake as Elvira, and Sarabeth as Blue Snow from the anime Shimoneta. Yeah, going with the idea Sarabeth's a huge anime geek. ^^

I asked Martin to toss me a costume for this while I was drawing, and he went as random as possible to give me Shedinja from Pokemon. Which worked since I was gonna surprise him by putting Alola-Dugtrio in it. Alola-Dugtrio is one of my favorite new Pokemon from Sun/Moon. Have him on my team. .... This would've been great if this comic dropped on Friday and not now but eh. ^^

Kind of funny Sarabeth's in that costume given with her whole thing about language there is no way she'd be likely to be into Shimoneta. Mostly thought it'd look neat - had a point in dialogue with her bringing up it was for some kind of cosplay rally thing but it was cut since the page flowed better without it.

Speaking of being without, yeah, no Halloween costume for Lillian. Didn't seem like something where she would get on board with it herself, being a bit more straitlaced and serious compared to how Alex and Laura are more outwardly zany.

And yeah, wanting to be a little more out there in regards to Laura's antics in this chapter and have a lot of her pretty much lost in character. Even just the next time she turns up in the chapter she's already in a different costume from this one. Which is good since that queen outfit was kind of a pain to color with how busy it is, though quite happy with how it came out. Pretty much did the queen thing first mostly because it's something we've already seen her do before so it's a good warm-up.

We'll get into Lillian talking to Alex and company soon, but next page is shifting elsewhere first. Be sure to come by Friday!
