This. I've been known to forsake correct detail for realism's sake. Using slightly muted colors for characters who wouldn't have access to brighter dyes, making high heels less ankle-breaking for an active character. When researching for Judal, I stumbled across a cosplayer whose jewelry was sort of a burnished/brushed gold, with wide bangles instead of the usual thin bright gold ones. It caught my eye when the rest of them had faded from memory. I can't find the picture, but I plan on taking the same direction with my cosplay.

But that's my take.
