Double booted pinata vampires

I hate feet. They're ugly, they smell bad, and they're poorly designed. The best you can say about feet is that at least they're stuck way down at the end of our bodies so we don't have to think about them very often. But even I don't hate feet as much as Mister Sinister must, because he is wearing two sets of boots to cover them up:

Mister Sinister

I'm not a fan of flaring hip-boots on male characters in general, but maybe that's just because I'm from Texas, where our boots end at mid-calf. But if you're going to wear them, what in the name of all that's good and right are you doing with yet another pair of flaring boots that end at your ankle? It's just weird, and that's saying something when you're talking about a white-faced, lipstick-wearing, double-starred on head and chest guy with a cloak straight out of La Cage Aux Folles. Seriously, getting attacked by Mr. Sinister must feel like getting mugged by a half-exploded pinata. And that's before he kicks your butt with all four boots.

    That guy actually looks pretty sweet, I mean seriously, would you fight him?

  2. Jeff Hebert says:

    Me? Heck no, but I’m an overweight, out of shape, bald 38 year old schmuck. I like the pieces of his look, but overall I just can’t get past the square head, white skin, scarlet lipstick, exploded pinata cape, and double boots. ESPECIALLY the double boots. I mean honestly, who wears two pairs of shoes?

    I have revised a classic joke to fit this situation:

    -What does a vampire wear?
    -Whatever he wants…!

    I would… Anyways, lame joke aside, Mr. Sinister is one of my personal favorite characters… The only thing odd is the ruptured pinata on his back as aforementioned. So jeff, gonna draw that cape into the expansion, mayhaps?

    Even double-booted, his feet are absolutely tiny compared to the rest of his body. If my feet were that small and delicate, I might be tempted to wear extra protection, too.

    Or, alternately, perhaps he once had huge feet, and he’s now in the late stages of a successful foot-binding.
