Can I just say - I’ve been really loving how well Misfits gets the style right for the time period in the flashbacks.

Like, yeah, this five years ago is totally 2010-2011. Blaze and I had similar fashion sense at the time apparently. 

This is just something that keeps impressing me, because not only do we not get many flashbacks to the 2000s that actually keep to the period in general - particularly not to teen goth fashions.

It’s going to take Jem and The Holograms, The Misfits, AND their alt-reality counterparts all working together to save this world…is that even possible?
And will Pizzazz be able to live with the fact that she must never reveal Jem’s secret? Some things may be too much to ask!

I also really like that in the first 3 issues Misfits hasn’t played into the idea of it being a reality show would be super intense drama of it.

The comic has this very real world feeling to it that I adore that shows up in both the writing and the art and I really appreciate that, because while Jem and the Hologram’s everything is great and always works out perfectly thing is enjoyable and really fun, I do like seeing The Misfits having these much more grounded problems and solving them in a more realistic way.

In today’s issue it was really nice seeing Pizzazz not freak the fuck out about Blaze having her own band and encouraging her in it because she’s good and should be the lead singer of a band. I just really like Pizzazz being supportive and encouraging to her bandmates.

And another fashion post -  I said this when issue one came out, but adding to the much more realistic tone of the series, I like that the fashion also looks way more like something you’d wear in the real world - I keep seeing things and going ‘oh I own/owned that’ or ‘I’ve seen that around a bunch’. Every Jem artist has been so on point with fashion and there hasn’t been one who I haven’t loved, but Jen St.Onge’s tends to feel the most grounded…

I really love that while this is a cute outfit, it’s still something that I can see being worn in a casual setting since she can just toss it on, hair in pony tail, bit of make-up and go.

Blaze and I share a similar style with warm weather clothes…
But once again, it’s genuinely something that is more of a realistically casual outfit. If I saw her I’d go ‘hey that’s a cool person’ but it wouldn’t be super unusual. 

I just really like seeing cool people who look like real cool people….and that through this and Jem fashion is always very consistant with what fits best with their personalities…

and then there’s the contrast between messier dressed down casual and their on stage outfits which are more glam with their hair fully done and the outfits being more complex/less comfy. Most of the time everyone looks pretty damn comfy.

And the contrast of Stormer having to dress up and look perfect for a meeting where she went in knowing her appearance was going to be picked at because that’s what you do when you’re anything out of the perceived ordinary that you are expected to “make up” for (*sigh of having to live this*) and then the more dressed down look.

I’m sorry for the long post - the clothes in this series just really stood out to me so much and being perfect every time and I’m just sad this isn’t going to be an ongoing series :(
