I must confess, it is odd to see Ahab without those straggling locks. It does give her a very different vibe. And I didn't know her thong was a manifestation of her body. Hm, saves on doing laundry.

Yeah, Ahab without her iconic locks is... awkward. She feels it. Her friends know it. She's been through a bit lately so her identity is kind of weakened right now.

As Ahab has been existing as a spirit, she's been fairly morphic. With her sense of self not being what it should, she can't subconsciously resume her 'idealized' appearance. It's passably similar to shapechanging like what Mallory and Nell have been able to do cosmetically, but Ahab can't consciously make it happen.

Manifesting as a spirit? You mean she isn't completely corporeal down there? She has characteristics of both flesh and disembodied spirit?

She is completely corporeal, but your latter statement is correct. Early in the comic, Hatter accidentally killed her with shadow poisoning. He gave her his soul (as well as Zygiella and the dead bounty hunter/dog, compelling their aid) to sustain her in return for what he did wrong.

In the Arachnid Goddess world, everyone has a soul (an eternal thing that leaves upon death) and the Animus, which is one's identity that exists as a world bound spirit. Without a soul in her, she would almost certainly have become just a shadow creature like him.

So, she has some characteristics (primarily morphic) similar to his nature. She's been playing musical chairs with souls and spirits, essentially.
