Cosmetics items are skins or accessories that can be applied to all Warframes (Excluding some Warframe-specific Auxiliary Cosmetics). These items include holographic badges, armor, helmets, Sigils, custom animations, and Syandana scarves. Some of them are available by default, others can be acquired through completing Events, through the Alerts system, syndicates, or purchased through the Market with Platinum.

All these items can be equipped in the Appearance page. Cosmetics whose names are italicized are no longer distributed or have limited distribution periods, typically due to them being distributed during events, part of a since-replaced Prime Access pack, or simply being seasonal offers.

ColorsEdit

Main article: Color Picker Extension
ColorPicker-ClassicSaturated

Almost all equipment and cosmetics, including Warframes, Archwings, weapons, sentinels, as well as the interior/exterior of the Orbiter can be customized with a variety of different color palettes. These palettes can be purchased in the Market. Each equipment have six color parts: Primary, Secondary, Tetriary, Accents, and Emissive (affects glowing color on equipment), and Energy (affects glowing colors on Warframe abilities).

Emissive and Energy also have secondary colors. Secondary Energy on Warframes, Archwings, Weapons, and Companions requires the equipment to have received Forma at least once, while it is available by default to non-Forma compatible equipment such as Armor and Syandana.

HelmetsEdit

Main article: Category:Helmet
ExcaliburSeries3Helmet

Every Warframe can be equipped with alternate helmets aside from their default one. Although these helmets are purely cosmetic today, prior to Update 10.0 some of these helmets included slight changes to the Warframe's stats, and are labeled as Arcane Helmets (not to be confused with Arcane Enhancements) to differentiate them from their cosmetic counterparts. Alternative helmets can be acquired from the Market with Platinum or from Alerts in the form of Blueprints.

SkinsEdit

Skins alter the appearance of Warframes, including Prime Warframes, with special patterns and colors. With a few exceptions, their colors may be changed by changing the corresponding color slot on your Warframe's appearance. They are for cosmetic purposes only.

Idle AnimationsEdit

Main article: Idle Animations

Every Warframe comes with a set of three custom idle animations: Default, Noble and Agile, which give the Warframe a unique idle stance depending on the animation and weapon type equipped. Occasionally, they will play a custom movement when the character stands still for a period of time. While all Warframe animations can be used between all Warframes, only animation sets native to a particular Warframe are available by default to that Warframe, and equipping an animation set from a different Warframe requires purchasing that animation for Platinum6450. However, Equinox's Day and Night animation sets cost Platinum6435 each.

AttachmentsEdit

SyandanaEdit

Main article: Syandana

Syandana are cosmetic garments, worn on the back of the Warframe that feature cloth physics, swaying to the Warframe's movement. Some Warframe specific cosmetics, such as Mortos and Valkyr's Bonds, are now treated as auxiliary cosmetics (whereas they had once been treated as Syandanas) and may be equipped simultaneously with a Syandana. All Syandanas can be used by any Warframe. Syandanas can be recolored independently of the Warframe's colors under the Attachments section of the Appearance tab in the Arsenal, sharing their colors with Armor. A select few Syandanas have channeling patterns on them, though most Syandanas are unaffected by channeling. Some Syandanas, such as the Misa Prime and the Noru Prime were only available through certain Prime Access packs.

"Syandana" is a Sanskrit word स्यन्दन that can mean "flowing".

ArmorEdit

Main article: Armor (Cosmetic)

Armor are additional physical parts that can be attached to the Warframe's chest, shoulders and legs. Each individual part location - Chest, Left Shoulder, Right Shoulder, Left Leg and Right Leg - can be individually customized with a different part, allowing for a mixed variety of styles. Also, Armor can be recolored independently of the Warframe and Syandana's colors under the Attachments section of the Appearance tab in the Arsenal. Certain Warframes such as BansheeIcon272 Banshee and FrostIcon272 Frost have preinstalled armor parts that can be replaced by these attachables. Armor have their own Channeling areas, and will glow when a Warframe is under the effects of Channeling.

Some armor such as the Edo chest piece will intermittently emit a translucent energy shield over the Warframe's chest, using the Warframe's energy color whenever sliding or taking damage. This is a purely cosmetic effect.

Auxiliary CosmeticsEdit

Main article: Armor (Cosmetic)#Auxiliary Cosmetics

These are miscellaneous Warframe cosmetic items, typically equipped on the face or head.

EphemeraEdit

Main article: Ephemera

These are a type of cosmetic item for Warframes. When equipped, they create special visual effects that emanate from the Warframe's body.

RegaliaEdit

CBbadgeemblemU15

Regalia consist of Emblems and Sigils that display images of specific types of status or affiliations, such as Founders status, Clan affiliations and Events participation. Emblems can be equipped on either shoulder, and both shoulders can have the same emblem.

SigilsEdit

Main article: Sigils

Sigils are mainly Syndicate-related logos that can be displayed on a Warframe's body. Unlike other Regalia, Sigils can have their size, position and orientation customized. Wearing Sigils also allows a player to earn Standing with the Syndicate the Sigil represents.

Clan EmblemEdit

Main article: Clan Emblem
ClanEmblemHolo inv

This holographic badge displays the emblem of your Clan on a Warframe's right shoulder. It can only be acquired through the Market. Should an unallied Tenno bear this emblem, the badge will instead show a Lotus flower as seen to the right.

Event EmblemsEdit

Main article: Event Emblems

These badges can be acquired through participating in Events. The badge displays a holographic symbol of the specific event on either (or both) shoulder(s) of the Warframe. The player decides which side(s) to equip the emblem. As these events have concluded, their badges are no longer available.

SekharaEdit

These talismans are typically obtained by completing Trials. Since the unconditional retirement of trials they are no longer available.

Skull BadgesEdit

These commemorative holographic badges were awarded to the top 1000 players in the now-retired Global Kill Leaderboard. They are no longer available.

Founder EmblemsEdit

These badges were given to any player who had purchased the Founders package. Each package provided a unique badge which displays a holographic image of the Founder type that the player is associated with.

With the closing of The Founders Pack, these are no longer available.

Update 25.0

TWO-TONED COLOUR CUSTOMIZATION - Round 2!

Warframes, Sentinels, Weapons, Attachments (Armor, Ephemera, etc), Regalia, Syandanas, K-Drives, and Archwings now all have a double Emissive color option (no Forma required), and a double Energy color option (Forma required).

Hotfix 24.7.1

Secondary Energy Clarification

Yesterday’s Update 24.7.0 included the change of Secondary Energy color applying to Warframe emissives - but it seems we got it backwards and shipped with Secondary being the dominant color. This has been rectified to have Primary as the dominant color with Secondary Energy being the “halo” color around it. To clarify even further, Primary Energy colors will cover the brightest emissive area with the Secondary Energy color covering the darkest emissive area.

We know we have more work to do to really polish this new Fashionframe option, as you may still notice some emissive areas are not equal to others. This will take time to properly implement - we thank you for your patience!

Changes & Fixes
  • A short FX will now appear in the Arsenal as an effort to help display how your chosen Secondary Energy color will blend with your Warframe’s abilities.
  • Fixed Warframe Helmets not using the full Primary Energy color if defaults are applied, or if you just have the Primary chosen.

Update 24.7

  • Secondary Energy color now applies to Warframe emissives! You might have to get creative with your color combinations to make it really pop.
  • Secondary Energy color now applies to Nova’s Wormhole ability.
  • Fixed Secondary Energy color not applying to numerous Melee weapons if the primary Energy color was default.
  • Fixed the Ki’Teer Sekhara being extremely bright after the Secondary Energy color update in 24.6.0.
  • Fixed lens flares not properly applying the Secondary Energy color (noticeable when casting Mesa’s Ballistic Battery/Shooting Gallery).
  • Fixed Clients only seeing primary Energy color on Syandanas.

Update 24.6

Two-Energy Colours!

Fashion Frame just got a little more energetic! We have now added a SECONDARY Energy customization slot in the Arsenal! This is simply a free added bonus when Forma'ing gear.
All Gear can unlock this once Forma is applied! All non-Forma compatible goods (Syandanas, Etc) have this automatically.
