The fleecing of Galactus

SO SPEAKS GALACTUS!The second-most F of the FAQs about my Galactus costume is, "Why fleece?"

(The first-most, of course, is "Who are you supposed to be?" Oh, how the classics of literature are neglected.)

While I was sure that fleece was to be my material, I was having trouble expressing the reasons why. Then the redhead, who knows me better than I know myself (and who knows art and color theory better than anyone else you know), explained my thoughts to me.

"You're trying to bring the comic page to life."

That's it. I like the look of the solid-color fleece because it looks like the effect of comics' traditional four-color printing process.
