Under My Skin 3 - The Geek Shall Inherit The Earth by LJ-Phillips Under My Skin 3 - The Geek Shall Inherit The Earth by LJ-Phillips

You can also check out the main story-line here in Skins fav.me/d5mol00


In their own ways, both Jordan and Rabbit are tremendous geeks. Whereas, Vinnie doesn't even watch tv. Cosplay is a mystery to him. I guess this takes place in Vinnie and Jordan's quarters while Jordan's changing into her costume in the bedroom.

Notes: The whole time I was working on the 1st panel, the line "Why are you buying tea lights? You have so many tea lights!" from the excellent webcomic Manly Guys Doing Manly Things thepunchlineismachismo.com/ kept running through my head. Don't ask me why!

Oh, and yeah, Vinnie has a kid with Jordan. But I'm saving that for another strip!

I'm Commander Shepard and this is my favorite cosplay-related panel in this comic! xD Sorry, couldn't help myself, being a Mass Effect fan ;) And Manly Guys Doing Manly Things is awesome, too, I definitely agree!

Delighted you like it :D I'm also a huge Mass Effect fan. Plus cosplaying as Commander Shepard just seemed to suit Jordan. Manly Guys is a great comic.

As Supernatural's, wouldn't they already be technically "Dead?"  But the Occult tends to foul up noun's, legal margin and proper titles.

Ah, good question. Nope, in Skins, supernaturals are simply races. Although Smokes like Rabbit can go without breathing for short periods of time, they are still alive - they have a heart beat, they metabolize all of that. However, in my comic, Nosferatu (which are different from Smokes) and zombies are definitely dead. Or rather undead :)

Vanessa: I have a friend who's a zombie, ressurected because he was buried in a power spot. Name is Ghoul, he doesn't remember his living name.

Jordan: Aren't ghouls, those creatures who eat corpses?

Vanessa: Yes, he didn't really think that one through...until I helped him re-grow his brain. Sweet Boy, a little anti-social but once you get past the smell, he's fun to hang out with.

Every bit of it. U need to do Citadel DLC. If u romance Garrus, which I think is canon, there is an awesome tango scene.

Too funny and very curious to meet Vinnie's kid. And I have a strong suspicion that Rabbit and her will be mischievous cohorts. ;)

Her name's Gracie and she's a bit of a brat (but a cutie-pie at the same time.) She doesn't like Jordan (whose quite strict) but she adores Rabbit (who lets her have chocolate for breakfast and stay up as late as she want!)

Dead! I tell ya! DEAD!!!

If physicality allows, I'd dress up as Bruce Lee/Jon Talbain for parties like those.

If not, I guess there is always Optimus Prime XD

Yep, poor Vinnie hates costume parties (and it only gets worse when they arrive :lol:)

That would be such a cool costume!! If I could, I'd dress up as Wolverine (but sadly being female and petite, it's unlikely I could pull that off :()

Now that's a great idea - I'm sure there are some fantastic Optimus Prime outfits available. I watched a documentary on Comic Con and there was this amazing animatronic Rex outfit from Mass Effect.

Aha, you caught the look I was going for :) I really wanted to give Vinnie a pseudo-Nick Fury look here. However, he doesn't get the resemblance at all - he just put on an eye-patch because that's his idea of fancy dress :lol:
