All things costuming -post questions and thoughts here :D
« on: August 17, 2016, 02:54:27 PM »
Okay I know Im not the only one thats trying to figure out various costume details/questions so I figured that a thread that just on that area would be useful.

So my questions:
1. What are considered the colors of Spire Olympus?
2. How would their Guard attire vary (if at all) from Spire Albions?
3. Is there a Word of Jim on any colors that crystals can or cannot be?
4. Are there any other visual things for showing someone is a warrior born?

#4:  The Feline Eyes are the only obvious visual trait that I recall.  Other than that it's all physical strength and behavioral quirks

Ferus mentioned that Olympians also favor fur trim on their coats, but the example was not an official uniform. (The guy in the tavern, the whose rooms Gwen appropriated.)

Regarding crystal colors, none of this is definitive or confirmed as the Only Color available, but lumin Crystals are usually described as a blue-white, Core crystals and the new Lift Crystal are Emerald, and the energy at least from ship weapon crystals was described as red-white in once place and blue-white in another (but that may be a matter of calibration, as the heat vs explosive force of their output is variable).  Also Cavendish's necklace crystal is red, though as far as I understand they dont really need or have a specific purpose with an Etherealist using them.
