View Full Version : reference on costume colors

08-14-2002, 09:05 PM
I was thinking about cosplaying as Rune from Dragon Kights but I dont have a clue as to what color Runes clothes are before and after he becomes a Dragon Knight. I can't cant find any colored pics of him in what I wanna do.

Here are the two I am thinking about:
the before one with the sash over his sholder and when he is still an elf. and the after one when he has the tunic like thing with the high neck and the fabric around his sholders...

if need be I will post some fan art that I did of the two, for better understanding.

You're probably going to just have to use the color pics you CAN find and try to get the character's (artist's) color taste from that, try to apply it to the costume you want to do. Did you try looking for back issues of the magazine it was originally published in? There were probably color images for the covers.

The only color pics I can find is of him in modern lke gothic clothes, and when it come to finding things like pics from issues of the magazine and what not, Im no good at... thats why I came to you all for help...

Hmm, I'm not sure I'd be any good at tracking a cover down either. They had back issues of the manga magazines when I was at Mitsuwa today . . . he's not on the cover of the US release, huh? Darn, what a pain for you!

Post your fanart, let's see if we can't guess at some colors.

ok here: one is not done and the hair colors abit off (it needs to be yellower) and his eyes need to be abit brighter, but I just did them today...

Rune before he became part of the dragon clan (still an elf):

His shoe that goes with above: http://images.cosplay.com/showphoto.php?photo=5865

Rune when he becomes part of the dragon clan (part dragon) *not done*:http://images.cosplay.com/showphoto.php?photo=5867

I know there is no black in the elf one... also I have wanna say that there is blue in the dragon and elf one because his dragon is mizu and his magic is water

Hmm . . . . . . . . . . oO;;;; Well, lessee. Green goes quite well with orange, if you know that's his hair color. As does blue. Maybe green for the shirt, blue for the pants (dark blue?) . . . Something with red or orange in it for the sash . . . nerr . . . maybe yellow for the accent on the boots (the fabric over them)? Like a deep gold? Ah, no, maybe red.

The second one . . . a few shades of blue for the main parts, and pale green and gold accents? Maybe silver, that's more watery. Plus I like silver and blue together lol.

Um . . . I'm not sure if that was at all helpful . . . lol. Oo
