As I understand it, suits haven't really evolved in the past 20-odd years. Anyways, if you have any particular type of suit from one of these decades, feel free to shout it out, And if you wish to elaborate on color. For example; a brown zoot suit or a black pinstripe suit.

Okay, poll is back. Noticed I had a duplicate entry for the 1940s and only gave one option.

Another example would be denim suits (not sure when those came about, but the have).

Poor Roko. I can't see this ending well.
Wonder if Yay will turn up? Has Beeps met them, yet?

It is indeed. Slava Ukranini!

I wonder what Beep's idea of a Girls' Night Out will turn out to be. We've seen Roko absorbing drunken packets at a bar back when she was a cop. (3695) Didn't seem exactly frolicsome. Of -course- Yay will horn in. Turning up uninvited is their secret power.

Either way, some sort of eldritch horror will be summoned. There have been enough close calls in the QCverse that eventually it’ll all end up with tentacles. And not the “friendly” line that Pintsize dreams of.

Possibly-human-skin-bound Bibles?! Is it just me, or is this comic getting weirder in a more and more chaotic way as time goes by? Not that I'm complaining, I like weird   :-D
It's just that if Northampton is turning into Sunnydale, I'd like a bit of warning...

Regarding the poll: Personally, I hate suits, for multiple reasons. To me, they are proof that the western world has lost all sartorial creativity, with men wearing essentially the same formal attire for well over a century. Furthermore, when I am forced (usually by tradition and peer pressure) to wear one of the horrible things, I either have to wear something off the hook (i.e., something that doesn't fit) or pay exorbitant rates for a rental (because there is no way I am going to spend that sort of money to buy something I hate wearing).
Therefore, I would personally wish to relieve Bubbles of the burden of having to put up with wearing the wretched things at all - BUT, if she had to do so, I would go way, way back to the Victorian tailcoat, as it is possibly the most military-looking outfit, and I can visualize Bubbles in both military uniform and fatigues (and she rocks them both!).

On the suits for Bubbles:

A 1940s, Zoot Suit in bright colours that compliment her dark red skin.

Victorian.  I watched Nicole Rudolphe's Youtube videos recreating Gonzo's outfit from a Muppet Christmas Carole.  At the time I could imagine Bubbles wearing it.

One early English translation of the Bible was called "The Wicked Bible". The printers left out the word "not" in the 7th commandment: it read "Thou shalt commit adultury."

Roko has a very strong attachment to her body, it makes sense that she'd place a lot of weight on respecting other people's.

Some of these are suits from within the given time periods.


But I get the feeling something like this from the 1840s would be more to your tastes.


But then there's stuff like this from the late 1700s

What is Roko doing in panel 2? Is she trying not to look at Beeps putting on her dress? But in the previous panel she's looking at Beeps in her underwear without seeming uncomfortable at all.

Presumably Beeps took her bra off since the straps aren't showing under the dress. Or maybe Beeps thinks it's going to be that kind of night and she's going full commando under the dress.

I think that it's because of unpleasantness of her thoughts of that place.  Either that, or wondering why in the world Beeps would need to install a SCSI[1] card (for those really wild nights).

Back before SATA-connected drives, or even the PCI connected ones, SCSI was the only way to connect devices if you really wanted speed.  It was (is) also quite expensive, and rather finicky.

Wow, now I‘m really curious for Rokos dress. It makes me think of an old Taylor Swift song:

“Only bought this dress so you can take it off.“
Taylor Swift: Dress (2017)
 :-D

any Taylor Swift song is "old"?
a song from 2017 is "old"?

 :cry:

[1] hardcore kink, but you can fit up to 16 devices on a daisy chain.  You just hope that the ones at each end are self-terminating.

Only on wide SCSI, though.

Narrow SCSI, there's only 3 ID bits, so you only get 8 devices on a chain, including the HBA. (IIRC, in SASI, the HBA doesn't need an ID, though, and early SCSI devices had to work on SASI HBAs. But, I think SCSI intended to allow multiple HBAs on a single bus, which SASI can't do.)

True, I had forgotten about those, probably because I never had to deal with it in things that I owned. Mine were all either U160 or U320.

Edit: And yes, part of me thinking that it could be robot kink is that it is typically pronounced "skuzzy".

Every song turns „old“ automatically six months after release.  :roll:

Anyway, I just noticed: Beeps is AFAIR the first robot shown with proper toes. Even Rokos old body and Millefeuille are toeless. And I don’t remember Mays new body to have any. 🦶
