I used my newly learned thumbnail trick for this page so as not to spoil Rain's costume from the thumbnail alone. Don't expect this to be the norm, but I might do it again in the future for other pages with "big twists" on them (although, I'm not sure if this even counts as a little twist, let alone a big one).
Anyway the chapter closes with the revelation of Rainís costume (be honest, did you figure it out?). Rain's was the only costume with a few subtle (but present) clues leading up to it. Not to mention, there's a little "out of canon" clue if you've been watching me for at least a year, you'll realize this is the exact costume I wore for Halloween myself last year (and thus, I know for a fact a transgirl can pass just swimmingly in it).

The chapter also closes with a brief, cryptic monologue from Maria. What could it all mean...? ^_^
Finally, this chapter ALSO closes with the most screen time Puddle has had in this comic so far. In fact, I may be mistaken, but I think this is actually the first time he's addressed by name in canon. I imagine some people who strictly read ONLY the pages and none of the artist comments or journals or supplementary material have probably been wondering for the past year whether or not that bunny that keeps showing up has a name or not.
And with that, see you next time!
