Chaos!

If I were familiar with the other characters, I imagine I'd have more to say about them. :tongue:

Reminds me though how my Vietnamese friends at temple have a good sense of humor -- I was paying close attention to one of the statues set off to the side of the foyer and noticed a Darth Vader figure. I'm pretty sure it was toy, but I didn't pick it up to be sure. I was noticed pondering the matter, and was promptly told "Yeah, we worship him too!"

:rofl:

Isn't that some kind of anime doll, Queen Yasodhara didn't wear a suit jacket or pumps last time I checked :P

No disrespect intended ;)

On another note I had a look through your deviations and I really loved this one:
