I'm right there with you TC. Female with Orange Twin Tail tentacles is best inkling. I'm not sure if the color is set in stone or not or if it changes depending on what the Team's color is. Perhaps we can make it so we appear as color X, but online everyone else would see you as the actual color of the team you're on if that makes sense. I'm fond of most of the color choices though; the only exceptions being yellow/green.
I'm not going to vote, because I really don't know. Weather I pick a male or female inkling will be the hardest decision of 2015. I'm a guy, and I think the male inkling fashion looks kewl, but female inklings just look more badass!
Am I the only one who thinks Ridley will be confirmed for Splatoon?
Despite being a guy I really like the girl squid design and have gotten used to it from all the trailers so I'll be picking that gender. I usually go with my own gender in games, and while the male design is cool in this game, the female one is too cool to pass up.
