It's a shame that the Elderlyboy seems to have been given a skirt to wear.

timesamyth, 08/17/2018, 10:24 am NST
Anyone get a big brother vibe from that skirt

Plus side, the Elderly Boy hair looks great for vampire cosplay. Also, is he holding a change purse?

(Brilliantly well-designed, though! )

It's a shirt.

1jediboy, 08/17/2018, 11:53 am NST
^Oh! Kinda like everybody thought that Arnold was wearing a kilt in “Hey Arnold!” When in reality, it was the tail of his shirt sticking out the bottom of his sweater!

Is the "sketetal" Meerca outfit a reference to something, maybe some superhero/comic character I don't know about?
I have to say I was really looking forward to this and am kind of disappointed. Quite disappointed.

purplebin, 08/17/2018, 1:13 pm NST
The elderlyboy doesn't have pants at all. Pants are usually wasted on Meercas.

herdy - JN Staff, 08/17/2018, 1:54 pm NST
Yeah, a shirt with a belt on top for no reason. The base colour looks nice but honestly that wearable makes the pb clothes pretty much unusable.

purplebin, 08/17/2018, 2:06 pm NST
Ugh, the Skeletal Wig looks even worse on a Meerca than the item imgage! And the shoes are a little smaller than the feet, so the feet look like they are busting out the side.
And of course those lenses aren't going to look good on a Meerca's little beady eyes.

purplebin, 08/17/2018, 3:51 pm NST
Hmm, I think they might have taken the inspiration from the Monster High doll called Skelita. At least the dress. It makes perfect sense to use a very thin and tall character as a model for the Meerca outfit, right?
The doll has much nicer hair than this.

stormmonarch, 08/17/2018, 11:39 pm NST
That is not a skirt. Both Merca are wearing yukata.

stormmonarch, 08/17/2018, 11:51 pm NST
This is the inspiration for Meerca outfit
Of course it didn't translate well on Meerca's body shape.

The elderly couple kind of looks Japanese to me, they're both wearing what looks like kimono and kimono sandals with socks.

1jediboy, 08/20/2018, 4:53 pm NST
^Hmm... I can see that. *nods head*
