Healer's Uniform

The Healer's Uniform is the universal attire for those who work for the Blue Lace Union. It is specially designed for its work, and while it certainly is no stranger to aesthetic additions it is nowhere near being rendered useless by that fact. No matter where you come from, you'll easily be able to recognize an incoming healer due to this uniform.

Design Information

Healer's Uniform (Mask) by restlessRenegade1
The Healer's Uniform's current form is designed specifically to draw attention, inspire trust and suggest the healer's precision and dependability. It is meant to cause feelings of trust, honesty, security. The gray tint is meant to also give off a neutral and practical feeling, and create a sense of composure. The cloak is admittedly mainly as it is due to aesthetics, as well as the head jewels that alter the appearance of the wearer's eyes. However, it does help continue to inspire these feelings and to help the healer stand out.

Design History

Designed back in 2305 PT, the uniform has had a few noticeable changes in its millennium of existence. Originally formed to combat the Shadowburne outbreak, the uniform started with only the blue-tinted jumpsuit, boots, and white undershirt. It also constantly required the healers to wear full plague masks and gloves.
In 10 GS this relaxed, and the masks became only worn around contagious patients and corpses. The gloves remained mandatory until 350 GS. 4 GS was when the symbol was added to the uniform, originally in the form of a simple silver brooch. Around 100 GS is when the cloak and symbol were added, originally a simple dark blue cloak for warmth. The cloak came to resemble its current form in 400 GS, and in 1300 GS the eye-altering gems were added to the attire.

Mechanics and Inner Workings

With the use of cosmetic enchantments, sourced from The Shining Crown, the head jewelry displayed on this uniform uses illusionary magic to make any observer see the eyes of the medic as blue-and-white. Some may describe this as eerie, while others describe it as calming.
While currently "useless", the Blue Cross Union has recently been discussing finding a better use for these and including practical enchantments alongside it.

Nice article :D   " as well as the head jewels that alter the appearance of the wearer's eyes." How does it do that?   Is the necklace part of the uniform? Is there any particular type of cloth that are used for the uniform, like wool, or is it not important and up to the wearer to choose?

Thank you!! I really appreciate it, and your questions too. They've helped me figure out stuff to add to the article! Q1.) It does that via cosmetic magical enchantments, and is commissioned by a specific company settled within the Shining Crown (a kingdom mainly comprised of Tabaxi!) The enchantment is meant only to give the eyes their blue-white appearance, but the union has thrown around ideas of adding practical enchantments alongside it. Q2.) It is! It's meant to be more visible than the jewelry displayed on the head, since it's larger compared to it. It's also less a necklace, and more an attached pendant to the cloak (used to fasten it closed!) Q3.) I didn't specify materials at first, since I am... woefully ignorant (read: very sheltered and uneducated), but here's my best attempt to answer this! After a bit of research, I believe they'd typically be made out of bamboo fabric but ultimately it would depend on the wearer and what they prefer.

Happy my comment were helpful :D   I thought the "necklace" might be the emblem but I wasn't sure and I was confused because I couldn't see the brook on your drawing - I didn't realise it was the brooch holding the cloak! That seems obvious now XD   Oh bamboo fabric sounds very interesting! Though not something I'm familiar with, so I can't really comment on that :p

That's so valid, and don't worry!! It happens, I've definitely missed things more obvious ehehe! And it really is interesting, I didn't know it existed until I did some research into different clothing materials! They look like the material you'd see in the curtains of a fancy shmancy country club (Which uh,, may be sort of specific/only significant to myself! Sorry if it is-)

Nice article and art you created! I like how the outfit is designed to induce a sense of calm in patients. That sounds very fitting. That eye illiusion is a nice addition as well!

Thank you, that's very kind of you! The prompt really got my brain moving in that aspect, and it was fun to craft. It was also super fun to research color languages and meanings!

Awesome article. I really love the design of the Healer's uniform. Especially the detail of the crown making the wearers eyes appear to change color.

Nice article! I liked how the uniform was designed to be calming. I'm curious what the inclusion of the eye-altering gems was for, and what purpose it served, as well as why the ensemble is now considered "useless."

Aw thanks! It was likely added mainly for aesthetic purposes, though I suppose it also works as a way to tell if the healer is authentic or not! As it's likely not entirely easy to recreate them.

I really like this article! It's not super long, but it is nicely detailed. The jewel that changes the uniform wearer's eye color is a really cool addition! Great job.
