A reader suggestion on the RWBY cosplay. Worked well for this conversation.
Also, conventions apparently hand out awards like a state fair. :D
Oh my gosh, is that a character from a Monty Oum anime? Rose red or ..something …. I can’t remember but my sister in law showed me it recently, so I’ll have to show her this. I do remember that her weapon is seriously Bad-A though.
And geez Mcfatfat save some awards for the rest of us!
Oh geez, so I just read the description and yes it’s her….I give myself some leeway because it’s late…early? Either way.
You can’t fire me! I QUIT!!
Unlike my sister, I have actually SEEN RWBY and recognized the character from the start.
I didn’t realize this show was such a prize that watching it is a reason to toot your own horn. I guess I better fix my terrible life choices and watch and memorize this show ASAP in order to say anything. :P
One more reply…her name is Ruby Red, right? Pretty sure that’s right …
Ruby Rose, sister of Yang Xio Long ^ ^
Yeah, you’re gonna have to explain to me how that works. These “sisters” have black and blonde hair, respectively, and entirely different names.
Well for startes my father and his sisters are much the same. He and one sister have black hair while the middle of the three has blonde hair, so thats not impossible or even unusual.
As for the last names, its not that difficult. Their mother was Summer Long, she had Yang before she got married, so her name is Yang Xio Long. After she was born Summer married Yang’s father, whose last name happened to be Rose.
Summer Long became Summer Rose.
After they were married they had Ruby.
Kenju, where did you read that? I had heard that it’s due to the fact that Ruby’s parents are gone. The father has been long gone and the mother more recently so vanished after a mission she had as a huntress.
After Ruby’s parents went missing, Yang’s adopted her as part of their family.
Originally Monty stated that they are not half sisters and neither of them are adopted.
As of last week however he retconed this and stated that they are in fact half sisters, both having the same father but different mothers.
I didnt know he retconned them having the same mother since I didnt go to RTX myself, but he did confirm they have the same father.
Her name is Ruby Rose. And word of advice, don’t ever dis the combat skirt.
Let’s hope there’s no cash prize, or McFatFat is going to suddenly have a lot more toys when Ellie gets home.
Bahahahaha they’ll be drowning in plushie Kirbys.
Nah, just means more plush for Ellie’s mattress.
She can upgrade to a king bed.
Alright nice one mate ^ ^ Though you SHOULD be aware of one little thing mate. Fans are not normal people, for anything, and they look into things and see things due to ‘shipping goggles’ that might not really be there.
I bring this up because quite a few people already comment on Ellie/Quinn, and…well, RWBY only GOT popular because of its rather healthy LGBT fanbase, that acted like a homing beacon for perverts lol. Still its a great series, and I am happy to say that I’ve had a hand in some of the better fanfiction for the series:
Also it was amusing that the cast for RWBY cosplayed as their characters at RTX a few weeks ago lol
You’ll be repeating your LGBT community advice with a cosplayer in the next comic as well. Feel free to copy/paste (and change the franchise info.)
Typically I’m all laughs and jokes, but this is a little different because RWBY is such an interesting case. Its fairly well known and has a large fanbase NOW, but it didnt have one to start with.
See, Monty Oum has a loyal fanbase, but its fairly small all things considered. He is mostly known for fanservice material (though some, like Haloid are totally kick ass, Master Chief and Samus vs a giant army) and more recently his work with Red vs Blue, but this was a new series from the ground up that nobody knew about.
Early on, a small group of people saw the early material and believed that some of the characters might be homosexual or bisexual due to certian interactions and due to Monty’s previous work. That small group spread word of this through the LGBT community and attracted several key fan artist that had *very* large followings, none of whome had ever heard of Monty Oum (the artist or their followers).
So these artist, who have millions of subscribers to their work started doing fan art for the series, fan art that Monty quickly learned of and started to promote with his twitter and DA accounts, which are tied in to the Rooster Teeth site.
So you had all the people who subscribe or follow the RT site see this awesome fan art, while in turn all the people following the fan art learned about the RT site, and both sides became interested in the other sides work as a result.
RWBY has topped several charts and made several records now, from being the only series to CRASH the RT site, to being the number one most downloaded series through iTunes, the second most viewed series on CrunchRoll, etc, but the fact remains, it all happened because of a something little more than pure chance, that someone who was friends with an artist, that was part of a community took interest in it.
Never heard of it.
Well, if you want a good introduction, just do a youtube search for the premier of the series:
RWBY Red Trailer
That trailer inspired someone to make a omputer game as a demo for their programming skills as they were looking for a job, fresh out of collage I believe. A friend leaked footage of the game on youtube, and now the guy is working for Microsoft, more specifically for RT, making a game for RWBY lol
Thats the thing that makes this series so interesting, its like a tight knit community thats rather inclusive.
It’s bad that I just had a jingle in my head to accompany that image, isn’t it?
I’ll go out on a limb and say that, if you were born before, oh, 1995 or so, you heard it too. I sure did.
McFatFat’s Cute Little Fang (it’s actually a trope!) probably didn’t hurt it here. Depicts the character as “mischievous, slightly hostile, or a trickster, but not actually ‘bad’”. Now you don’t need to go to the TVTropes link. I just saved your entire morning. You’re welcome.
Quinn’s already quite familiar with McFatFat’s functionality as a basketball….
This whole convention I’ve been trying not to explode then this happens…Well I had a good life.
See you space cowboy….
Having a felt covered basketball is only going to increase the overall cost of the McFatFat plush.
Unless the buyer supplies his or her own basketball. It’s like a McFatFat Basketball Cozy; you slip it over a basketball that you currently own.
Well obviously McFatFat will win. He looks like a cute plushie and doubles as a real live mascot to boot. Of course he would be a shoo-in.
With minor modifications he can cosplay as the cute pet/sidekick from every anime ever.
Although now I’ll be looking forward to one of your fans covering a basketball in felt to create a Mcfatfat
Load up the page and my first thought were, “Hey, look, Ruby!”
Love that show, and love that you included RWBY cosplay in your comic.
