The first of our two outfit swappers emerges, changed and ready to hit the dance floor! :D

Since this is probably the less dramatic of the two reveals, I decided to use this as an opportunity to address a number of concerns readers have presented in the buildup to the swap. For instance, yes, they are different heights, but their builds are pretty similar, so the clothes fit comfortably enough. Yes, Rudy probably has somewhat bigger feet and wouldn't likely fit in Ky's heels, so they do not trade shoes. And yes, Rudy can still touch up his hair and even makeup thanks to the infinite space provided by the "pockets of holding" featured on every pair of men's pants. XD

Sigh... And yes, Rudy kept the monocle. ^^;

This all leads us to Ruby. ^_^

And before you ask, Rain's final line is very quiet muttering. No one hears that other than herself and the fourth wall. Not even Ruby (who is immediately next to her) catches it, so you don't have to worry if Drew overheard (not that I think that'd even register to him right now).

@NikuComics: Yes, lots of pockets. Leg pockets are the best. Unfortunately there are seldom cargos in nice colors – as there are seldom men’s pants in nice colors: I want cargo pants in “girly” colors and patterns!

@NikuComics: No, no camo. I was thinking about stripes and stars and flowers prints... Ok, I don’t really like flower prints. There are actually work pants with lots of pockets in interesting colors; they’re also sturdy and comfortable; unfortunately all synthetic fiber. My taste is too sophisticated... ;)

also I was confused for a moment in that top panel, like didn't Gavin say Ruby? but then the immediate follow up of "oh you did say it right" is so relatable: reflexively correcting everyone because no one gets it right on the first go and then reflexively "correcting" someone who did get it right because that's just your habit now

@Guest:

Here's a little behind the scenes for you. In my script, I actually did have Gavin say "Rudy", but I started thinking that by this point he already knows better. It'd actually be kinda weird and hypocritical of him to make that mistake, especially now when he just advised Drew to be respectful.

So I fixed the line, but it left Ruby with nothing to say. Unless Ruby still corrects Gavin not realizing he got it right, which made me laugh, so I had to keep it. XD

It is a known fact in the fashion industry that women exclusively carry tiny things on their person, if anything at all. FACT.

"Why do you still shop for jeans in the mens section?"

*me with scissors, questioning why I'm asked that when I excusively wear shorts and my friends all know this*

"Pockets,"

@Sophie: Knew a girl/woman {we were both a LOT younger than i am now} who {essentially} took a pair of men's bell-bottom jeans {i did say it was about forty years ago, didn't i?} and ripped out the inner side of the legs and then stitched in panels of contrasting denim front and back to make herself an ankle-length skirt of comfortably-faded denim with Actual Pockets...

The thing I like about skirts is the huge pockets

Y'know, I think I know why my fiancee only wears skirts and overalls now.

Not at the same time, of course. That would look awkward.

I have seen women's pants and those things look horrible! If I tried one my legs would feel like they were being constrained. Pants manufacturers are sadists! I mean, even if I realized that I am not trans, I can see the evils of standardized clothes for men and women. What about a unisex long skirt that has many pockets? I could carry my wallet, my phone, my keys and my coins without feeling my pockets tight.

Also, now Rudy is a Victorian gay crossdresser. If he gets a steampunk fire weapon he will win a cosplay contest.
