I thought it was high time we had another strip of Gaga fun! This costume was a joy to color. I certainly abused my pack of Photoshop sparkle brushes on this one, as you can probably tell. I have a personal philosophy that sparkles instantly make anything better, and Chapel’s Gaga homages are no exception. It was hard to find an iconic Gaga costume I hadn’t drawn yet (that wasn’t made of meat) but I really love this one. I also chose this costume because the blue-ish silver color palette would actually fit in really well at a wedding, don’t you think?

I don’t know about you guys, but I would love to attend one of these wedding shindigs Chapel goes too. I mean, a wedding where one of the guests shows up in a Gaga costume? Sign. Me. UP.
I actually have duplicates of some of my favorite black dresses - but I have *a LOT* of black dresses, and I have found it's possible for there to be a lot of variation, even if you're wearing only one colour most of the time. I could see Chapel wearing some of the Gothic Lolita dresses, absolutely.

Of course there's able to be a lot of variation! Chapel just sticks to one style.
 Emma  9/20/13
 
yeah a wedding like that would be very cool
ashlee 11/12/12
I totally agree! I want to attend one of those!
 Emma  11/12/12
 
I am now never apart from chapel! she is SO awesome!
lala 10/5/12
Oh wow, I'm so flattered, thank you!
 Emma  10/6/12
 
Plain black dress, beige nightgown, or Lady Gaga -- and nothing inbetween. Chapel does nothing by halves, does she?
xheralt 1/22/12
Nope, she's an all-or-nothing type person when it comes to clothes!
 Emma  1/22/12
 
i love how she's eating an egg fry!
1/20/12
Thanks! That's what I tend to eat for breakfast, too!
 Emma  1/22/12
 
Chapel is AWESOME!! I love your comics, Emma!
Blarb123 1/19/12
Awwww, thank you so much! Please keep reading them! Hearing lovely comments like this one really means the world to me.
 Emma  1/19/12
 
does chapel have a birthday?
1/18/12
Yes, she does! It's April 21st. We'll have to throw an Internet birthday party for her this year!
 Emma  1/19/12
When is YOUR birthday Miss Emma?
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 1/19/12
It's February 13, less than a month away! :D
 Emma  1/19/12
That's a little over a month before my birthday! :)
Emily13 1/19/12
Cool!
Miss L.S.P 1/19/12
OH MY GOD THAT'S MY BEST FREIND'S BIRTHDAY!!!!
Ginny Weasley fan 1/21/12
Wow, that's so cool! Your best friend has an awesome birthday, then!
 Emma  2/7/12
Hey! Chapel, the character, is 2 days older than me but wait... Didn't Chapel originate in 2009?
Clockwork Wombat 10/30/12
No, I was only talking about the anniversary of the comic -- not Chapel the character's birthday! It later turned out I was wrong on the exact anniversary date, too.
 Emma  10/30/12
 
Do you write in your own words?!?!?!
you have really neat handwriting!
jackie 1/16/12
It is my handwriting, but I made a font out of it, which makes it a bit neater! :D
 Emma  1/17/12
really?
how? (if it's really complex it's okay you don't have to explain) :)
1/17/12
It's not complex at all, and I don't mind! What I did was I went to myscriptfont[dot]com. They have a chart that you download and fill out with your handwriting, and then they turn it into a font for free! It's VERY useful, and I'm really happy with the results! :D
 Emma  1/17/12
That sounds neat!
Emily13 1/17/12
that sounds so cool!
maybe i will try it out.....
:)
1/18/12
 
Hey Emma, does Chapel have a brother or something? In Jenga War Strategy, there's a picture of Chapel's family. It's not too clear, but I think there is another boy in the picture.
Just wondering.......
Miss L.S.P 1/15/12
for that matter Ms. Emma, do YOU have any brothers or sisters?
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 1/16/12
Nope, I don't! Sometimes I wish I did, though!
 Emma  1/17/12
how come he wasn't introduced in the beginning?
1/20/12
He's away at college, so that's why he's not seen in any of the strips!
 Emma  2/7/12
WOW, you're such an eagle eyed reader! I'm very flattered! And it was a good call, too. You're right! Chapel does have a brother! He'll be introduced later though...SPOILERS!
 Emma  1/17/12
Well, I remembered that picture on the wall, and when I checked back.............
Miss L.S.P 1/17/12
 
That was my first Chapel comic and I loved it!!!!
Blarber423 1/15/12
You're going to love all of them, Emma's comics are great!!
Ginny Weasley fan 1/15/12
Thanks so much! And just wondering, how did you find out about my comic?
 Emma  1/17/12
I've seen your illustrations in Stone Soup, because I have a subscription to it, and since you can't illustrate for them anymore, I saw somewhere in the front of one of the magazines that you had a website, so I decided to take a look. It's such a cool website!!!!
Blarber423 2/8/12
 
Her shoes are kinda strange. It's like the heel is in the front instead of the back.
Miss L.S.P 1/15/12
I know, right? It's very fabulous!
 Emma  1/17/12
but they must be hard to walk in.
1/20/12
Yeah, they must be...oh Chapel, the things you do for fashion...
 Emma  2/7/12
 
She looks really odd, but awesome. Why is Chapel being caught without her signature black dress in the first three panels??
Sasha 1/15/12
Well, I'm assuming that she just got up and is still in her pajamas.....
Miss L.S.P 1/15/12
YEP, you called it! That's Chapel's nightgown. I've shown it before on one of the Chapel greeting cards, but this is the first time it's appeared in the comic!
 Emma  1/15/12
Actually, in the first season, one of the comics had her in her nightgown........
Miss L.S.P 1/16/12
Really? OH! *forgets own comics*
 Emma  1/17/12
 
Emma, which Lady Gaga comic is your favorite?
Miss L.S.P 1/14/12
Augh! How can I choose?!
 Emma  1/15/12
I like the Gaga Dress Code one!
Miss L.S.P 1/15/12
True, that one is good. But STILL! They're my creations! How can I pick?
 Emma  1/17/12
 
Chapel certainly has one thing going for her-- an interesting sense of fashion.
Emily13 1/14/12
Yep, that's for sure! :D
 Emma  1/14/12
Hey Emma, have you ever submitted to Cricket or Cicada? I'm planning on submitting to one or both of them soon, as well as Creative Kids and/or Skipping Stones. They all look like great magazines!
Emily13 1/17/12
I subscribe to both magazines, but haven't submitted to either yet! But definitely submit to Creative Kids and Skipping Stones, I've been published in both a few times and they're GREAT!
 Emma  1/17/12
I'm on a writing kick, so I definitely will soon. :)
Emily13 1/17/12
 
Chapel looks fabulous, yet scary in that last panel........
Miss L.S.P 1/14/12
.......but hey, she's going to a wedding so, why not?
Miss L.S.P 1/14/12
i maybe a man, but there is one thing i have learned about women going to weddings (and who are not the bride themselves). NEVER try to out shine the bride. NEVER. the wedding is about the bride, not you.
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 1/14/12
Hahaha, that certainly does seem to be the case. Perhaps if Chapel were much older that outfit would be a problem, but only a she-demon bride would have an issue with a preteen being dressed to the nines. :)
Tara A. 1/14/12
WAHHH I wake up and find you guys are having this awesome conversation! :D And I don't think the bride should have a problem with how Chapel's dressed -- I mean, Chapel's family's probably used to it by now, right? But who knows, maybe she's a Bridezilla...
 Emma  1/14/12
Well, I don't know...... it is the BRIDE'S day...... just be careful, Chapel. You wouldn't want the bride to throw a shoe at you for stealing the attention.
Miss L.S.P 1/14/12
Oh dear! I don't think the bride would do THAT...
 Emma  1/15/12
you could be surprised by who would do that....
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 1/15/12
Let's just hope that the bride has a more glamorous dress than what Chapel has right now.
Miss L.S.P 1/15/12
I don't know, it's kind of hard to beat Gaga...
 Emma  1/17/12
You never know.....
Miss L.S.P 1/17/12
are you sugesting that the bride is american maid from the tick? thats how she deals wioth her foes pins em to the wall with a high heeled shoe
darlec 1/24/12
you are a MAN??? Like, are you a senior or something???
wacko#1 1/16/12
There's nothing wrong with being a man......
Miss L.S.P 1/17/12
Indeed.
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 1/17/12
It appears that i am by far older than you are. my real age is... well don't worry about it. the grim reaper hasn't succeeded in bagging me yet.
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 1/17/12
"This is the best comment thread ever," says the cartoonist, as she scrolls through her comments page grinning like a crazy person.
 Emma  1/17/12
O'RLY?
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 1/18/12
 
Chapel looks a little scary in the last panel...
Ginny Weasley fan 1/14/12
that dress reminds me of a bad 80's sci fi movie outfit.
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 1/14/12
HA! Oh gosh, best comment. Considering that's an outfit I drew straight from Lady Gaga herself, that's rather fitting.
 Emma  1/14/12
Completely true....
Ginny Weasley fan 1/14/12
It just reminds me that Gaga has no sense of style, taste, or sanity.
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 1/17/12
WHOA there! Ha ha! :D
 Emma  1/17/12
to be fair, back in the 80's, we ALL had bad fashion sense. man, just what was i thinking about when i had that mullet and neon green t shirt. ><
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 1/18/12
Oh dear...
 Emma  2/7/12
 
Ever been a bridesmaid Emma?
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 1/14/12
No, but I HAVE been a flower girl! It was when I was 4, though, so I don't remember it too well. :)
 Emma  1/14/12
Lucky you! I went to a wedding when I was about three years old, so I wasn't asked to do anything but watch.
Ginny Weasley fan 1/15/12
Lady Gaga is one of the worst-dressed celebrities, no offense any people who dress like Lady Gaga.
wacko#1 1/16/12
I totally agree! But her music is great. TOTALLY.
wacko#1 1/16/12
GaGa's music is good simply because she stole it all from better artist than she will ever be. I even find Dub Step to be better than Gaga.
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 1/23/12
Okay, THAT'S a bit harsh...dubstep is the weirdest music ever...
 Emma  1/23/12
Yes it was Harsh, but it is also the truth of my thoughts about it. I will not lie. Having survived the last three decades of pop and rock music ALONE has allowed me to see who really has talent from those who just being pushed by the "industry". Gaga is one those who are being pushed. She might have a good heart, but I think she is also being controlled into being what she is now just to pull attenchion to herself.

oh, and you have NOT heard the weirdest music yet. TRUST me on this.
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 1/24/12
Oh...okay, that's actually pretty interesting!
 Emma  2/7/12
I know! But, Dub step is really cool!!!!
Miss L.S.P 1/29/12
