Mostly they commented more on the secondary costume... a literal interpretation of of the theme (untranslatable and not very understandable out of context)
Now I'm intrigued! Not the 'Emperor?!' Blink
nope. Not the emperor.
'thul considers the story of "the emperor's new clothes" more a fable than a fairy tale. They generally prefer the fairy tales of germanic origin. (not german, germanic.)
Do tell!
Aside from a change in armament (from gun to knife) and a slight gender change on the character, the costume was loosely based around this:
wikipedia article: Revolting Rhymes by Roald Dahl Wrote:In Little Red Riding Hood and the Wolf, the wolf enters the grandmother's house and devours her before putting on her clothes in order to eat Little Red Riding Hood next. Riding Hood is not disturbed however, and calmly pulls a pistol out of her knickers (underwear) and shoots the wolf ("The small girl smiles/Her eyelid flickers/She whips a pistol from her knickers/She aims it at the creature's head and BANG! BANG! BANG! she shoots him ... dead.") — yielding her a new wolfskin coat.[2]

In The Three Little Pigs, the wolf quickly blows down the houses of straw and sticks, devouring the first two pigs. The third house of bricks is too strong, so the wolf resolves to come back that evening with dynamite. The third pig has other plans, however, and asks Little Red Riding Hood to come and deal with the wolf. Ever the sharpshooter, Red Riding Hood gains a second wolfskin coat and a pigskin traveling case.[3]
These beings thought their floor was clean... even while washing it. That illusion faded at the end, while pouring out the water. A nice shade of gray...
The wrath of a dragon is great.
The producers of the spike tires for 'thul's bicycle should be glad they are far away, for today the second of the tires they bought this autumn broke down, same flaw as on the first tire that broke just a few weeks ago.
Find a new supplier and then go vent your spleen!
why spleen? venom sacs are far more fun...
Oh of course, you beings probably don't have a spleen to vent..
some pesky little creature ate it, and seeing no reason for it being there in the first place, 'thul did not bother regrowing it.
