Here I am, with another color psychology post. This time we will discuss Queen Eleanora and her redish-black wardrobe. I know you haven't seen her in black yet, but trust me - you will.
Let's start with red. Here everything is simple: forst thing that comes to my mind when I see red things - power. And then comes royalty. Here what Internet (*surpriiise*) says:
Red, the color of blood and fire, is associated with meanings of love, passion, strength, leadership, courage, willpower, rage, anger, danger, stress, action, radiance, and determination.
The color red is an intense color that is packed with emotion ranging from passionate, intense love to anger and violence — representing both cupid and the devil.
Someone told me Eleanora is emotionally unstable - she is! *So am I 😅* Who would stay sane after loosing his/her own child?
In flashback we see Katelyn who's running to Eleanora to greet the guests - The Queen is wearing a dark-pink dress (I'm good with names of shades, thanks) - not red one, thus staying powerful but tender in the same time.
Let's go back to the present. In episode 5 she's asking for a black dress. She's in grieve! She just lost her "Right Hand", please don't make me recall his name 😬😅
But human loss is a usual thing for a Queen. Indeed she will miss him - maybe she'll get her revenge, who knows - but her daughter is still there! Scared, lost, maybe - dead. So here we go:
Black is associated with power, fear, mystery, strength, authority, elegance, formality, death, evil, and aggression, authority, rebellion, and sophistication.
That's it for today! Hope you liked it and learned something new 😉
If you don't know WHAT or WHO I was talking about - please check my story "Union of Times" 💖
As always, I'll be glad to hear from you❤️

I decided to make a series of posts about color psychology in "Union of Times" as it was really important to me, to show the characters with colors of their gowns, chambers etc.
Today I'll tell you about Katherine whose color range is very wide, and here's why.
In the very beginning of the story we see her wearing a floral dress - floral pattern was meant to show her innocence from the point of view of her character and simplicity of her lifestyle. Then we see a range of outfits while she's getting ready for a date with Oliver - from a red dress to olive blouse and jeans, in flashbacks she's wearing pantsuit (at the Academy), blue dress (childhood reminiscences), yellow top with jeans on the dinner with parents - something we all have in our wardrobes, Katherine is usual teenager.
In the next moment her life turns upside down and she comes to the court. There the magic begins. We see Odette telling her to braid her hair - princesses don't wear their hair down - there are certain rules that she must follow now (even if these rules are only Eleanora's rats 🙄). The next day you have a choice - dress up yourself or call the maids. Maids offer you colorful dresses - rave of color reminds of how careless a Princess' life can be - as Darell said, "All you need to do is to smile". Creating these outfits I distinguished green one, green color becomes Katherine's motive throughout the story.
Green is the color of life, renewal, and energy, is associated with meanings of growth, harmony, freshness.
Getting ready for meeting with Greslet Katherine asks Odette to find something more reserved - psychologically she's crushed, almost terrified. She feels she's entrusted a big responsibility.
