Hey, Alex's costume that we first showed off a preview for just over a year ago! And Chris who the anniversary picture aside has been away longer than that!

Yeah, Chris was never really intended to be gone this long but there just hasn't been much of a chance to slot him in. Is at least fairly prominent in this chapter, if a little in and out thus far in writing it.

Series of cameos is always fun too. I'm curious if anyone can name every costume on display here or not; will go ahead and say Randy's just wearing his football gear, no real costume to it, and I figure Chloe and Ada's probably going to be the hardest one to guess. Speaking of guess go ahead and stick Jenny on the pile of Disney costumes in this chapter, and there's at least one more still to come soon.

I like the touch of Adam going all horror movie-ish in the framing of Laura's house here. It's our main setting for the first leg of the chapter, though not the only place we'll be focusing on, so seems appropriate to give it a little bit of lead-up and kind of an ominous look to things.

Next page shows Sareena and Misty's costumes, anyone got any guesses there?

Heheh... Yeah, I was halfway into drawing Laura's house with an above-shot like every other time we've seen it, but then just thought "NO! Make it like the Addams Family!"

Know Martin was playing coy with Alex's costume, but I'm gonna spoil it just so I can whine; he's one of The Doctors. I don't know which one because, funnily enough, neither me or Martin are into the show! Martin just picked the costume so he could torture us. Well, it backfired; after this page drawing that outfit was deceptively easy! For me.

One thing we talked about that I dunno if it's come up in story is that Dorothy is a big Sci-Fi geek. I think Alex dressing as The Doctor is keeping to his promise to Candice he'd try to be more in-character. That may or may not also color his flirting with Chris, I dunno. Alex likes it both ways.

This is a fun thing to do thus far; got a kick out of figuring out who would be dressed as what; only Alex and Chloe and Ada were in the script, everyone else I was given free reign on. Very nearly put Randy in a Marvelous Man costume but thought it'd be too self-promoting. Figured since he's a douche, it'd be pretty douchey to just wear a sports uniform you use rather than get an actual costume.

If you're curious who Chloe and Ada are dressed as, it's a character voiced by Tara Strong. That oughta narrow it down.

Well, kind of indirectly come up since there've been a lot of random sci-fi nods and references with Dorothy's room and with random conversations Alex has had with Laura and Lillian. I kind of have the idea Alex started watching sci-fi initially just to pass as Dorothy and then became a nerd for it himself.

No it doesn't Adam, she does voices for everything, and it's not easy finding both names and pictures of the together in one place.

Heh.... Note to self: Work in a costume who was voiced by Frank Welker.

But I'll give you a hint, whatever this character's from, it came out in 2015. ^^

I hope Alex has some jellybabies 8)

Though the doctor he's dressed as more had a thing for celery
