Yaaaay! :thumbsup: We are a cut of the same cloth, Enchantermon! :)
Lol, indeed. :)
So what if I am, huh? Anyways, I work better when I'm drunk. It makes me fearless! If I see a bad guy, I'll just point my sword at him and saaaaaaaaaay, "Hey! Bad guy! You're not s'posed to be here! Go home or I'll stick you with my sword 'til you go, 'Ouch! I'm dead!' Ah-ha-ha!" Ha-ha. *hic* See? Ain't no one gonna be messin' wit' ol', Benny!

What makes it worse is that the game specifically says the wedding takes place "One week later" after the fight with Alhazred. Which means he's wearing clothes to his wedding that he's worn for at least a week, if not longer.
One week is more than enough time to have his clothes dry cleaned and pressed!

Especially with a genie on hand.

Oooooooh, a very good point.  Let's just say that they both have an excuse--Cassima's been stuck in her room for six months and can only wear whatever she has in her closet (it's not like she can go shopping), and Alexander had been stuck on a ship for three months.  It's valid
Alex didn't even change clothes before going on the ship! Maybe both have been wearing their same outfits for six months total?
Well, ya, King's Quest is on Earth. Daventry is very old city from a long time ago. It's in ruins now and people aren't quite sure exactly where it used to be. There are some archaeologists searching through the ruins, they think they know its Daventry. But its somewhere on Earth."-Roberta Williams http://kingsquest.wikia.com/wiki/File:Daventryisearth.ogg

Perhaps someone could create a game to bridge the one week gap so we can know the entire story.  I bet there is some good dialog to be had in there!   ;)
I didn't know how much I really enjoyed the Sierra Adventure Games until I played them all over again 15 years later.

The KQC covered the day or two before the wedding began.

I assume this means "King's Quest Companion," right?  ('Cause when I saw that I immediately thought "King's Quest Collection.") ???

Actually, the two outfits are, in fact, not the same. They're both green and gold, but the similarities end there.





As you can see, his outfit in KQVI has somewhat puffed-out sleeves with cloth of gold in stripes down them, while his outfit in TSL presents rather different sleeves. Also worth noting is that the front of Alexander's tunic is decorated in TSL, but plain in KQVI. All that this thread has really proven is that he has a penchant for green and gold (which isn't unreasonable; I like them too).

Now, this is an adventure game. Let's remind ourselves that Graham has endless pockets; if we're going to complain about the lack of realism, let's start there. :P

Uh, I thought this topic was about Alex's attire at his wedding at the end of KQ6, not the wedding (Rosella's, right?) at the start of TSL.

Oh, and as a Harry Potter nerd, I know that the Gryffindor colors are red and gold; Slytherin's are green and silver.   ;)

Oh, duh. :P I knew that, but I was confusing myself.  I was envisioning the Hogwarts crest and getting all mixed up. ::)
