Some Marching Uniform Designs by 290Pika Some Marching Uniform Designs by 290Pika
So Blue Devils B and Santa Clara Vanguard Cadets both got new uniforms this year, and I must admit, I was somewhat...disappointed. BDB's is rather plain compared to its previous iteration, and SCVC's has double stripes everywhere and looks almost entirely white. So, my host family friend from last year and I got to contemplating what BDB and SCVC should look like. :lol:

The first three designs are Blue Devils colors. The first one is my BDB redesign, based on this year's uniform (and the butt cape from BD, of course). The second and third were based on BDC.

The fourth design is my redo of SCVC. I gave them more red, since red's one of Vanguard's colors. I made the double stripes single stripes, since I think one bigger stripe has more impact than two thin ones.

The fifth and sixth are just more traditional designs, and I made them my elementary school colors. :lol:

The last three are concepts for my sister's high school. Two of the three have navy pants, since I've heard all to often the kids from high school complain about the white pants. I prefer white pants aesthetically, since they contrast well with the green grass and the black asphalt, but I agree, they're a pain in the ass to clean!

Uniforms for instrumentalists are almost always consistent--it's the guard that has the problem with inconsistency. :c I swear, each year for me in guard the uniforms digress.

I like that color guard uniforms often change to match a show theme! It's pretty neat. But, it's a little weird when the "show theme" uniforms are used in school-related events like football games or used in parades.

Which is why I really liked the Blue Devils B 2011 guard uniforms - they had accessories to make them look like they didn't go with the corps and such, but the actual bodysuit thing matched the corps very well and looked sharp in photos and the few parades we were in.

The Blue Devils' uniforms with the half-skirts were my band teacher's inspiration for the form of our uniforms haha

No, not bad at all! And our uniforms look very cool, in my opinion at least. I've only posted one picture of it though.

The uniform starting from the left in fourth reminds me so much of American Fork's uniform. God blass them and their awesomeness! They deserved 1st place at BOA. :)
