"Still as clingy as ever I see then Vinyl"
I finally gave in to all the requests for Vinyl's mother to make an appearance. But it came with so many problems on my part. I told myself I wasn't going to design her to be similar to Vinyl, then Vinyl's brother was shown in the IDW comics, and I couldn't get the whole idea of a white unicorn family with different coloured hairstyles out of my head. So after working out that seemed to be the only way to go, I opted to give her a far different hairstyle from her children.
Then I went and had a massive argument with myself about how Vinyl should address her mother. Seriously. 'Mother' seemed far too formal for Vinyl, and no doubt there would be an argument if I used either the the 'Mum' or 'Mom' term based on spelling, so I settled for 'Mama', mainly because it's funny, and also because it really hints at Vinyl being a mummies girl, contrary to her attitude when she's performing.
And let's not even get onto the subject of naming her! XD
