Wow, I actually got his costume right! Yay for me! :mrgreen: Last panel, though, Joey's expression reminds me of Chucky somehow.

Make up your mind Joey!

Do you want people to recognize your costume or not?

Rival Schools? As in, United by Fate? If so, only reason I know of that is Tatsunoko vs. Capcom.

And oddly, I got an increased liking in Squeak because of this strip.

Dude, I actually want to see that. A little too meta, though, don't you think?

This will be the second year in a row no one recognizes my costume. So I guess I'm Joey. :P

I guess Im include in one of those two groups Squeak mentioned ... because if I see someone in the street with that costume my first guess would be "Generic Japanese Character #45"

Squeak's giving advice on fashion
despite her lack of need,
showing that a girl's eye and passion
are what a guy needs to succeed.
This is before he meets with Lester
and beats him with his idea?
This thing, Squeak thinks, is sent to test her
and the sight is something to fear.
She's writing her memoires in his house,
storing the adventure of her days.
She's truly a legendary Mouse;
special in oh, so many ways.

One pretty sweet costume Joey. Better than my ghost costume. I'm not even going to wear anything. I'll be the ghost of my dreams. Get it? Because my dreams are dead.

I'm also very cheap.

Joey should go as Doctor Who. His doghouse always appears bigger on the inside to me.

I did not even think close to that. Well to be fair i had no chance to begin with, I barely watch anime.
Now I know this is off the topic a bit but imagine one of them dressing up as a Five Nights at Freddy's character?

Same here.
Oh golly, I can practically see him surprising Keene in that costume and doing the robotic scream. :twisted:

It would be funny if Peanut dressed as Mario, Grape as Luigi, Fido as Goku and Kevin as Vegeta? Maybe Ralph will dress as Cell if we're lucky.

That would be fantastic! :mrgreen: Unfortunately I have a feeling Joey's not a Dr Who fan (if that's the case, Joey will soon be able to build his doghouse out of a stronger material).

I think it would be neat if she was writing to Spo. Both of them sharing all the secret, nerdy stuff that Fido and Joey do :3

I never try to get into too much detail with my costumes for Halloween. Just as long as it's scary. But I like seeing people that do put in the extra effort where my limited brain can handle for Halloween.

Joey should go to a horror convention this time of year, there'll be enough generic nerds there to recognize him. You know, for as much as I love Halloween, I rarely put on a costume. I just don't like it for some reason.

Awesom I would had never thought about Daigo from Rival Schools congrats on everyone who knew it, really :mrgreen:
Also I'm impressed Rival School isn't as mainstream as Street Fighter, so yeah I'm impressed :D

I really like Squeak and Joey, they are a little bit odd, but that makes them SO loveable :)
Also I like Joey's new design, makes him looking much more fluffier :mrgreen:

Joey, it's the people around you are who are wrong, not what you do with your cosplay. ;) Don't care much about that, but instead, show them that you know more than what they know. ;) Honestly, I don't see so many details put in your costume. :P Geeky fixations sounds less bad than real OCD, but try to tell that to poor Joey... Cute ear caress by Squeak in the last panel! :D
I already knew that Rival Schools is a beat 'em up game, don't know nothing else about it.

Sorry to nitpick, but she is Squeak. I think you mean Spo... unless you're talking about a Squeak in an alternate Hp universe in which all of dtlux's fantasies come true!

I don't think its possible for Rick to not draw Joey cutely. Even when he's pouting he is adorable.

I'm starting to like Squeak more with each new strip she's in.

I'm kinda surprised to see how much stuff is in Joey's doghouse, it's practically his own study! Although Sasha apparently has a large dog house, but I assumed King made it that way so she had a nice place to stay away from her owner. Then again, if you want a place to study and roleplay, I guess you need a large and private house of your own.
