Heh, why not? I'd be amused to see Graham gallivanting around the Green Isles in his formal wear. And it'd be amusing too to see a comment about Graham in his comfortable, reassuring normal adventuring duds (ala the comment about what Roger wears in SQ6).

If he did walk around town like that, it would make one of the "puzzles" in episode 1 completely null and void. I'd love to see Hassan's reaction though come to think of it.

I remember being shocked when I saw Graham wearing a crown in the demo.  I was like, "Whoa!  I thought Graham was too humble for that!" Makes sense now, of course, but it would have been a kick to see him traipsing around in his silver and gold. 

Then again, it wouldn't have felt like King's Quest, so...

Eh? He wore a crown in 1-4. Probably 8, too, but I can't remember.
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!

Never played 8, but he always had the Cap at least somewhere nearby in the other games.  I was like, "Why is he starting off the game dressed this way?!" in the demo. :)

He didn't ever go adventuring with it on, did he?

Well, no, but my point is that he wasn't too humble to wear a crown. It's a symbol of his Kingship and part of his formal dress. It's not like he wore it to make himself look better than everyone else, he wore it to say "Oh, by the way, I'm a king." Kind of like US Marines would wear their dress uniforms at special occasions, indicating, "Oh, by the way, I'm a marine."

Well, we have seen KQ characters in their birthday suits before. There's a cheat in MoE where you can essentially remove all of Connor's clothes. Of course, there's a nice big Mask of Eternity covering the family treasure, but still, Connor is in his birthday suit.

Can anyone say Betazoid weddings much? XD (that's a Star Trek The Next Generation reference btw)

I'll bet a lot of people would have paid good money to see Deanna Troi's wedding...

Hmmm... there goes that off-topicness again!

I still find it fascinating that they have weddings in that fashion... I'd much rather have all of my clothes on while I marry someone, thank you very much. Although the Klingon wedding ceremony from DS9 Season 6 is really fascinating. When/if I get married, I am really tempted to hold a Klingon Wedding. Including having the whole path to Kalhiya or however they spell it.
