Ozma right now: 🐥🐥🐥🐥🐥

This is based largely on my own relationship with dresses and the mirror when I was Ozma's age, but I'm perhaps channeling a bit of the spirit of Edward Einhorn's short story, "Ozma Sees Herself", found in Oz Story Magazine #3.

As part of my quest for quasi-historical accuracy, I decided it was okay to give Salye Soforth some anachronistic 70's punk fashion after researching the history of safety pins to make sure they existed in 1904. Also, she's drinking a brand of root beer that no longer exists. I did enough research to make sure I didn't use the logo from the 1960s or 2000s, though I'm not 100% sure it was available in ready-to-drink bottles by then (they only sold it as extract and syrup early on).
