The idea for this came to me clearly months before I even wrote down the script for the first strip in this story. Steph's a cosplayer with a serious bent for theatrics so when they were told to wear black she did what she was told to do plus some additions here and there. I mean if you were going to a political demonstration as ludicrous as holding a protest in Starbucks then you're doing them a favor by hamming it up for the press as well. This was something I pictured she'd be wearing at the time, a cross between Neil Gaiman's goth-girl, Death and Madonna during her Material Girl phase during the mid-80s (check this out ) HAHA! Oh man, that was fun.
