native american influence


Thought about how Ilvermorny uniforms should look like! Stuck to the blue & red color scheme and gordian knot uniform descriptions via and added Native American & Hogwarts influenced aesthetics to the robes. 

Bronze/gold brooches pinned to the top of student robes signify house symbols, while ponchos showcase the year of the student via number of stripes/bands similar to how the age of trees are read (tree rings). Robe style follows Hogwarts robes. 

Note: Cultural fact (which I’ve just recently learned from an Anon - thank you so much!) headdress feathers that are showcased to be flared and upright indicates hostility and war, while headdress feathers that are faced down symbolizes peace. 

The character above just happens to have feathers raised up for purely aesthetic reasons, although this’ll be a point that I’ll remember for future fanart :P

How do you think Ivermorny uniforms should look like? :) 

Parallels between Life is Strange and Until Dawn
  • referencing the butterfly effect and using butterfly imagery to signify that your choices have changed the game’s outcomes
  • significant Native American influence in the setting with no actual representation of Native Americans
  • someone shoots bottles and a girl watching says “Nice shootin’, Tex”
