At the time of her first appearance in Preludes and Nocturnes, Lucien related that "The Fashion Thing has been many things: Flapper...mod...punk...She was a 'Mad Madonna Witch' for a while. Last time I saw her she was the 'Mad Yuppie Witch.' But that was a year ago."
She was shown flying on her broom briefly in issue #2, while drinking a cocktail of "blood and Perrier", and shown riding her broom in a top hat and tails, and nothing else, in issue #22. She also appears in The Kindly Ones.
She is based on The Mad Mod Witch, created by Dave Wood and Jack Sparling for DC.
