One thing I regret about WPK is that I never sat down beforehand to organize how the clothing rules work. In college I had this really cool 17th century world map framed by national costumes, and I wanted to use it as a model for the different human nations in WPK, but I didn’t organize things before I started the comic. Coherent fashion has converged a bit—Hadrakahns wear bright primary colors, while Zaiapanis (and Vish) favor pseudo-Victorian getups—but the rules (when to wear a hat; what women of different stations wear) never gelled. Oh well; it lets me use whatever bits of fashion strike my fancy at the time, and probably suits a part of the world that’s been in political and social chaos for the last 10-20 years.
