Marvel.com: Your female characters are always stunning and so uniquely “you”—what was your intention with Dawn visually? What was most important for you to convey about her?
Michael Allred: We went back and forth finding a nice “girl next door” vibe. I wanted a no-frills short haircut, something simultaneously spunky and sexy. And we wanted a very specific look for her outfit, something distinct like Charlie Brown’s zig-zag shirt. I finally came up with the Ladybug polka dots that everybody dug, and then it was a very easy call to do the bumble bee stripes for her twin sister.
