I'm secretly waiting for the entire world to finally, completely stop caring about Homestuck in anyway whatsoever... so I can suddenly make THE MOST ELABORATE, ACCURATE MAYOR OF CAN TOWN COSPLAY EVER and just blow everyone's minds.

This probably needs a LOT of context if you haven't already been reading Conventional Wisdom for years and years. Back at Ic hibancon 2014 I wanted to depict some first-time congoers in Baby's First Cosplay, so I looked around to see what the trendiest costume picks of the younger attendees were. I came away with Madoka Magica (or at least that Kyubey hat), Homestuck, and Doctor Who, and when t hose characters went over pretty well, those three costumes became something of a fixture around here. The problem was, well, you know how The Kids are with their fads and changing tastes and hula hoops and what have you. As time went on, I began to worry that these designs were getting too dated for the kids to represent The Younger Generation anymore. I actually did ch ange their costumes up in 2016, but that was a decision that d idn't s tick. Still, I found myself wondering if it was time to change things up for real this time... and once again I find myself inclined to just leave things the way they are.

Incidentally, this was one of the few pages I actually managed to get drawn while I was at the con... and wound up having to completely redraw it anyway once I got home, because stuff I draw during the con almost always turns out like smelly garbage.

@ Blitz: So, these guys should be between 15 to 19 by now. After all, they would have been, at youngest, 10 the first time you made them, and you just told us it was 5 years ago.

...Okay, you can keep them for 1 more year, then you need to update them to background adults and make new ones.
