Behold the Mad for Mod Capsule Collection that will appear in the pages of WITH VICS YOU GET EGGROLL!
First: I felt like the colors had to be names that fit with Madison Night, the character. Several of these were very clever, but didn’t feel like her
Second: I instantly loved “Beach Party” and “Lemon Twist.” This set the standard for 2-word names that don’t include the actual name of the color. Since neither of these used alliteration, I wanted to go with four names that sounded like a set. Using this criteria, I chose “57 Chevy” for the blue (more on this below) and “Cherry Rocket” for the red.
PESKY DETAILS: I’m in talks with Chevrolet to see if they would grant permissions to use their name in the book. I’m expect to hear shortly. If they say no, I’ll pick another name and there will be two blue winners.
Third: I pictured two different customers walking into a paint store and requesting the colors. #1 is a soccer mom who is trying to control her unruly boys. #2 is a beefy construction guy covered in tattoos. When I imagine these two sets of customers ordering these particular paints by names, I couldn’t help but smile!
Thanks to everyone who entered!
