Thoughts... thoughts...

"John" the drawstring hoodie is an interesting feature of an old-timey outfit...! The cross-laces are very attention grabby (I'd say the whole picture has a lot of fun patterns to break up the flat colors~)

Ari Looking extra fancy for a day out! In fact that's the longest hair I've ever seen on him...?

Lily Lots of fun colors! Kind of reminds me of your patchwork dress, sort of. The doll's face is surprisingly well inked for being so small.

Ben His old outfit always gave him a pretty neat shape..

Niko I noticed he's a little duckfooted here. :aww: Pretty sure that was intentional.

Suzanna Polka dots! I bet my 2-year old niece would think for a second that was Minnie Mouse. XD Good choice with the top too; since it's all about maintaining balance...

Dante That sash. XD; It's like he had to grow into it.

Rosafiore YellOw~! :) It took a moment but I'm pretty sure she's wearing Persy's default out here, or a scaled down version. The ribbon was a nice touch.
Russell Pop! POP! :iconblamblamplz:

"John" I was just thinking it's some sort of tunic.  (I'm glad there are enough details to keep up the interest)

Ari Does look like one of the dressier ones, huh?  I think this is the longest I've shown his hair, but it's a bit more distinct this way.  

Lily I like patchwork, ha ha...  I think I had the most fun coloring her outfit.

Ben It's a pretty different look than he ended up remembered with.  Interesting to think Bruno didn't know him this way...

 Niko for awkward cuteness ^^

Suzanna I hesitated a little on the reddish shade for that reason, but, eh, that's what suited her.  glad you like the top~

Dante I think he did!  I think he got it from his mother.

Rosafiore I figured I could so I went for it (the yellow)!!  nah, no reference to Persy intended, just me liking certain types of looks.

Russell XD

Very true... :O (I think seeing the earlier version of the kids is where I imagined that AU where Bruno & Cat had their Game roles reversed)

A-ah... that would explain so much about the sash...

Ha ha, sometimes I feel like I have to remind myself of it.

I know, right? :,)

Well. Cat tried his best to compensate for it by dressing as sharp as he did... ^^;

I guess I feel kind of sorry about it because it's not like Bruno would've minded...  But I suppose Cat couldn't go back after all that.

I'd imagine Cat had a lot of past baggage to bury behind (literally, almost).

But then it would have been "the norm" for Game players to adapt to the times. Cat could have used that as a convenient cover, or was just compelled to do it.

...either way, that seems like a whole mini-comic unto itself. Like if Cat uncovered his old garb at the bottom of a chest or something...

Ha ha, uh, I'd say yes.

I think Cat stands out to me in regard to this because he wasn't allowed the opportunity to adapt at his own pace- or, rather, that it wasn't adapting to changing times, which I'm not sure was ever too large of a problem for him, as much an abrupt cultural shift (as opposed to Belle Starr who always moved between cultures and Camphor who at least held onto some trappings of his in private).

Bruno did eventually see him wear the hat (well, not necessarily his original one, but that same type) on occasion.
