Reception

The best thing about the second story is how the Gang support Velma. It was very easy to see how this story could have gone terribly wrong, but Briglio gets it right. For instance, Velma could have been jealous of the beauties at the fashion show, but Velma is happy with herself, a feeling that Briglio emphasizes.

Velma has to be persuaded to take part in a fashion show by a costumer that's genuinely smitten with Velma's potential. The Gang are there to cheer her on. When she walks out on the stage, they are suitably complimentary. Not once do they suggest she looks better than she did. Change however can be fun, and Daphne has the most fun with Velma's metamorphosis. The characteristic enthusiasm from Daphne perfectly capturing her voice engenders wry commentary from Fred. Velma then is a catalyst for the characterization, rather than the mystery.

The strength in the characterization makes it almost easy to forget about the mystery, but it is also worthy of Mystery Inc. and offers a very good, original motive for the crimes. The culprits make sense and surprise in that Briglio eschews the obvious.

Matchette brings a playfulness to the illustration, and the way she makes Velma look gussied up but still essentially the same winningly makes the point of the characterization in the story. Velma is beautiful, and Mystery Inc. loves her. [1]
