First, let me say “Happy Birthday” to Musa and to the “papa” of the Winx, Mr. Straffi! 🙂
Now to the topic.
Onyrix sure has gotten a mixed reaction from the fanbase! The biggest point of controversy is the color schemes. Musa’s in her signature red, but everyone else is wearing something dramatically different. Stella in blue? Tecna in dark green? Bloom in raspberry pink?
Here’s my theory. If just a couple of the girls were in unusual colors, I’d think Rainbow was just trying something new or balancing the overall visual of the group. But all the Winx except one in a different color? That’s never happened before. The scope makes me think something else is going on.
Could this switch up have something to do with the plot? I still think Onyrix is a dark transformation — maybe a corrupted form of Dreamix. Or since this season will be darker — at least, it looks that way from Michael’s pictures — Rainbow felt the usual, brighter colors would clash with the mood.
I don’t know. I’m just speculating like everyone else. The trailer may clear this up, and if it doesn’t, maybe the season itself will.
What about the outfits themselves?
I’ll start by saying I’m one of the fans who likes Onyrix. I think the open-leg pants — the feature that stands out the most — are weird, but elegant. Not wild about the high heels, but no other shoe would look right with this style.
Of course, I like some of the Winx’s looks more than others. Here’s my ranking, from least favorite to favorite. Read the rest of this post
