Sublo & Tangy Mustard #6 - New Look

Here's your September episode of Sublo and Tangy Mustard, in which Sublo embarrasses himself again trying to explain what he is, and decides it's time for a makeover. Everybody else is concerned by his new appearance.

When I was writing this one I really hoped nobody would take it the wrong way. Already one person on Youtube has asked if this episode is meant to be a metaphor for gender transitioning, and I want to be clear that it's not. The idea is more that Sublo's obsession with his costume is so weird that nobody (including Sublo) knows how to approach it, so they're using some of that language to talk around it. If anything, it's more inspired by extreme body modification, like that guy who cut his ears off so he could look more like a parrot. But it's really not meant to have any serious commentary or subtext. It's just a guy who's really into his submarine costume!
