Shaenon: I probably shouldn’t share this sketch, since I might actually use this outfit in the strip at some point, and OMG SPOILERS. But what the hell. As many readers have by now noted, there’s a strong Oz influence in Skin Horse, but I swear that’s not the only thing going on, so readers are cautioned not to try to map all the characters and plots directly to Baum stories. It doesn’t work very well. Anyway, Tip does look awfully happy in his Princess Ozma getup.

Channing: I really don’t want to know the exact thoughts that correspond to that specific expression on Tip’s face, although it’s probably nothing more than “I am a grown man dressed up as a fairy-tale princess; hooray!” This is the sort of thing Tip thinks.
