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.

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.

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

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).
Douglas isn't my real name, but because of a name block put on me by a higher-order being known as Djinni, I can't say my real name.

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.
that's pretty awesome, all he needs is an eyepatch

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.

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.

You know. That jacket and scar actually suit Joey. It would now be odd to see him without it.

......And clearly no one can pull off looking like Karishad other than Fox.
Also, Squeak must have fairly strong arms to be able to write with that pen/marker.

Don't worry. I didn't know until I read it in the comments. But on a side note, I have only been reading Housepets for 2 1/2 months.

I think I may know who. After doing a quick search, Joey might be Daigo from Rival Schools
As already stated, congrats, you were right. I would have never found that out.

Also, we need Peanut to dress up as a giant acorn, because thet is the best type of nut for hum to dress up as. :D
