Ok, but something I really liked about the Blood Moon Ball (beyond the Obvious Starco implications and First Full Appearance of Tom) is the fact that the Ball was pretty clearly taking place on The Day of the Dead
Marco was listening to a Spanish song about Day of the Dead, he was wearing a special fancy outfit (Lbr he was sore at Star for going to the BMB without him and with Tom, but he wouldn’t have dressed up for just that, he’d probably just finished doing Day of the Dead things with his parents when he went to star’s tower to sulk) And certainly add in the fact that his mask was a Sugar Skull.
It kinda makes you think there was maybe another reason why he wanted Star to stay at home tonight. That he maybe wanted to share this aspect of his culture and this holiday with her, but thought the reasoning was too selfish and would have planned to later sell it as a Consolation prize. (”You don’t need a ball to have fun! Come bake some Pan De Los Muertos with my parents and me!” kinda thing)
I just really love how Marco’s heritage isn’t shuffled into the closet in this show. Like no, his father is a proud Latino Man and he’s making sure his son doesn’t loose that aspect of himself surrounded by Americans, and His Mother is right there with him for every step of it.
Holy crap I’ve been on a role, well what can I say about this page. Oh I got something, I REALLY HATE HORROR MOVIES HOLY SHIT ok so thats why that part isn’t very even probably? I can’t even look at it….>.> hahahhaha…… also if you have any spare cash feel free to donate to me. I’m a simple peasant trying to afford food. Thank
