1) Lace - I thought this was only going to be used in the fall/winter season, but they've used lighter colors to give clothes a very Victorian and feminine flair for the spring.
2) Bold prints - this is a great way to make a statement! The vibrant colors jump out and instantly brighten your mood.
3) Tiers and ruffles - again, this softens up the style this season with a more romantic feel.
4) Earth tones - the past few years, spring has been about citus colors, but this year, it's a return to the neutrals as well as black and white.
I can't wait until the weather starts to warm up!

When I was reviewing the characters with the artist, he mentioned something about 8 heads and 10 bodies. It sounded a little bit like mix and match Frankenstien body parts, but it turns out that he was talking about poses for each character. The character's heads have 8 positions and their bodies 10. Together, they are combined for character moviements and animations. Pretty cool, huh?
