When I first created the character of Rhapsody for Sound Waves, her hair was a short pixie cut.  I wanted Rhapsody to look like a younger, chibi-fied version of Pat Benatar.  I don't know exactly when I started drawing her with the full length of hair that goes down to the small of her back, but I know I didn't even realize I was doing it.  Then I noticed it, and saw some issues of Sound Waves where Rhapsody's hair changes length a few times per issue.  I was mortified.  I mean, that's such a rookie mistake to make, right?

Looking over the pictures of Starfire for Red Hood And The Outlaws #1, I see that her hair is not a consistent length, either.  Even if you ignore that big shot with her hair curving in a graceful circle as she arches her back, her hair is hanging down past her ass, the small of her back, or mid-back, depending on how she's posed at that moment.

I think I'm over the mortification of Rhapsody's Amazing Changing Hair.  Of course, Starfire is at the beach, and Rhapsody's adventures are underwater, and humidity does make your hair do funny things, right?  ;-)

And some of you are probably wondering, "WHY are you noticing the length of Starfire's hair?!?"

Hey, just think of her as one of those dolls from back in the day. You could pump the doll's arm and a little spot in her head sprouted lots and lots of hair. Then, somehow, the thing could retract and make the locks shorter again. Voila! I know what you mean though when you're the artist and/or writer and notice discrepancies.
