One problem with the last chapter is that besides the Decay Conductor stuff, it was very boring in terms of visuals. Since it was a lot of personal drama and character relationships it mostly consisted of various characters talking to each other in a lot of different locations. Not necessarily anything wrong with that; personal drama is important. But after an especially long chapter of that it's not the worst idea to have a chapter that's all about the eye-candy. ...... Get it? Candy?

So yeah, the costumes are one of the funner parts of the chapter, both for this and WaR. ^^ Lore as Trixie was an obvious gag, but did want to do something with Andy as Robin Hood. Have pictured him being a big fan of Robin Hood for a long time, but just never really comes up. Is the kind of character he'd wanna emulate.

Naturally it's kind of easier to draw on folks for crowd shots in Blues than in WaR since there's a lot of established students in the school.... Let's see.... Miss Tickle as an overly-wholesome clown, the devil-kid as a more horrific version... Past that we got Tuxedo!Pearl from Steven Universe, Spider-Gwen, suit of armor from Zelda, Rey from Force Awakens, Frisk & Chara... Mr. Bregar is a Greybeard from Skyrim (the character was inspired by Paarthurnax). The boy with the arm, that's something we'll probably discuss more coming up. ^^

Not a ton going on here story-wise, more about eye-candy and letting Andy and Lore meet up. ^^

This page was actually a huuuuge pain to color. A big part of it's the head count and all the new colors needed for it, of course, but one other big factor was Lore's cloak and hat. Which has kind of continued being a pain in subsequent pages, mostly in trying to keep it fairly consistent, but not quite as much as one. Part of it's due to how Manga Studio works, easier to reuse colors from a previous page than from within an existing one.

But yeah, pretty much just wacky Halloween antics going on in this one, which is also pretty much the case with the next page. That'll show off a few more established cast members rather than just extras though so is that going for it.

Wonder if anybody'll see where things are going with Guin's choice of costume just yet or not. As said on that filler a couple weeks back this chapter does elevate her somewhat and do a bit more with the character, despite her just being a face in the crowd at the moment.

Is the guy on the right dressed as one of the Greybeards?

Wow. I was worried that one was very clear.... But yeah, Mr. Bregar's character was partly inspired by Paarthurnax so made sense to dress him like a Greybeard. ^^

Just didn't expect to see a Teacher dress as a character from a game like Skyrim to a school party.

The mechanic Princess Zelda had with the suits of armors from "Spirit Tracks", this is certainly an interesting page, wonder what's going to happen next.
