Because Nia's demands must be met. Or at least attempted.

Recently got hooked on this set of comics, and despite the fact I'm pretty sure I'll make a terrible blonde and am not nearly athletic enough, I want to make pretty flame controlling ROBOT HANDS!

The gloves, sadly, will involve no flaming. Also since I've scoured every page of the comics they appear in, no two frames make them look anything alike so I've gone with the easi^H^H^H^Hmore boxy versions than the more organic-shaped hands in some of the fancier art.

It was a toss-up between Chase, Alex or Old Lace. Alex would be somewhat harder and Old Lace is way out of my league ;)

This is going to involve ACTUAL WIG STYLING, so prepare for impending failure!

I did no forcing of any kind, I merely encouraged your idea of being a Runaway ;P I still like how you don't mention a certain cyborg at all XD the rage is too great. I'm also shocked you didn't consider becoming a lesbian.

Oh wow! It looks like a deceptively simple costume, but you've made the accessories look so amazing (light-up goggles!) that it really stands out now :) Good job sir!
