Heheh... Yeah, Valerie as Worf as a looong standing idea. ^^ Like, before the comic started. Worf was an inspiration for how her character was written and all. Since I started getting into Voyager myself, Martin suggested I make Heather a fan of that one, so she's The Doctor. From there it only made sense that Guy was Odo. In particular I like how Heather's costume has a little Mobile Emitter on her arm. ^^

Jenny was a bit rougher; wanted something fun and silly, but couldn't get any of the magical girl costumes to feel right. Went with an original look for it. In retrospect Sailor Moon might've been a good idea. I mean, they've got the same rabbit motif.

Our other costumes are the Kyle and Connor versions of the Green Lantern and Green Arrow; two heroes I really love. ^^ Kyle's one of my top ten easily. Adding onto that we've got Gaara and Quicksilver. Speaking of, those first two panels were in the original script. The page felt kinda half-empty, so threw those in just as I was starting to draw it.

For the record on Captain debates; I couldn't be more on Team Picard if I shaved my head. Easily number one. Janeway is really inconsistent and has a lot of less-than-proud moments, but I honestly think most Trekkies don't give her a fair chance; with the scenario she was dropped into I think she comes out pretty far ahead. Haven't seen enough of DS9 to have an opinion of Sisko but seems cool. Kirk's personality was a big influence on how I write Marvelous Man so that answers the question I have on him.

Besides, we all know the real greatest captain is Jonathan Archer.

A funny sort of meta thing on the custom magical girl costume here is that we kept trying to come up with a magical girl-based costume for Jenny when we were designing new ones for everyone - speaking of she was by far the hardest to settle on a design for - but just couldn't find a way to do it that fit with her appearance powerset. Kind of awkwardly to work around in general for things like that with Jenny, I suppose.

Also funny to me is that both WaR and Blues have now had a scene where someone dresses as Odo. That's a weird little point of similarity. Incidentally I had not at the time of that page or at the time this was done watched any DS9, but I saw the pilot a few days ago. Alright start, I should watch more at some point.

I'd kind of like to do more with the Heather, Valerie, and Guy trio at some point. It tends to be fun just seeing the three of them hang out. Not exactly rare to see it with just Heather and Valerie, and that's always fun in its own right, but I like the dynamic Guy brings to the group as well.

Incidentally we'll see Grant and Nicky's costumes, along with Lenore and Xandy's, in the next page if anyone wants to guess at any of those.

This is a fun silly page, looking forward to seeing everyone else's costumes.
