Just sayin'

On the left, we have Willow from the comic. On the right, we have Willow in real life. (Well technically we have Alyson Hannigan, but I hear they look identical).

Questions? Comments?

In TGIQ Angel says Buffy's eyes are blue. Spike doesn't dispute his claim. Three more years - and they'll forget the color of Willow's hair.

And - in TV show Sunnydale was situated at the seaside. In comics the crater is in the desert.

TGIQ was pretty much a parody, though. It's showing that in Angel's mind, Buffy has been reduced to the stereotype of the cute blonde-haired, blue-eyed teenager. She's not real (to him) anymore. (At least, that's my explanation...)

I do wonder if the artist was simply told "Willow has green eyes" and deliberately didn't look at photos of AH to match them. In the earlier scenes her eyes are sort of greeny-blue. (As opposed to greeny-brown)

Oh, and Sunnydale wasn't </b>at</b> the seaside - it was close enough to the sea for the Sunnydale swim team to drive out there for a party. It could be 2 - 3 miles inland (and the sea is just off the edge of the picture).

Maybe in earlier seasons Sunnydale was inland but it was definitely at the seaside in the end of Grave! :)


If the change of the eye color is a set-up for some plot twist, it could be something cool.

It was certainly close enough to the sea for people to jog down to the busy Sunnydale harbour in "Surprise" and "Consequences" and go right back into town without changing clothes... ;-) I think we're entering what the Simpsons people call "flexible reality".

Not 'people', Slayers and vampires. They can run at 40 miles per hour, remember? ;) (And doing without getting their clothes or hair mussy, too...)

Her eyes are 79% cyan, 43% magenta, 41% yellow and 13% black. Aly's eyes in the other picture are 43%C 51%M 70%Y 21%K. Not really all that different in terms of the ink used...

Just another example of Jeanty not being up to the job.
