So today will be kinda fun because we're talking about High School Uniforms. I like designing clothes, sure some are simple or wacky but I'm improving. I'm still trying to figure out what's best for me. Well actually at the momment I'm trying to figure male fashion cause I really suck at that, but that;s not what we're talking about today. We're talking about school uniforms.
A lot of my characters are around the ages of 15-18 and therefore are in high school. The school system is Mew-Ville isn't complex but it's a mix of a few things I guess. Children start school at the age of 5-6 in Primary School and continue until they are age 12 when they go to High School, there is no middle school in Mew-Ville. Students continue through high school until they are ages 17 where they graduate high school. They will have two choices after this as they can either go towards College or find a job. The College is slightly a mix between Sixth Form College and University here in England, as there are set classes to attend and most students are required to pick multiple courses, most pick two but some may choose to pick three or even four, the courses are quite difficult like University degree standards but they aren't so difficult to the point of crying. I guess. So it's like a general mix.
Since the popluation in Mew-Ville is still fairly smallish, there is only one large area to accommodate the buildings and so the Primary School, High School and the College are all in the same location. Each buidling is quite large and could probably fit 700+ students each with the College being the largest building.
I'm currently not too sure about Slabun since I'd probs have to discuss this with the creator, but currently there are multiple schools in Slabun that several of my characters attend. Slabun schools are more superior academic wise but it's a very long train ride between the two towns.
The education system in Ruby City is exactly the same as Mew-Ville, but there are multiple schools scattered around the city. I'm not sure how many there are at the momment but I will be mentioning at least ten different schools for Ruby City. There are also multiple primary schools and Colleges too. In Ruby City while some College buildings are very large, there are some smaller ones that are dedicated to specific subjects such as art or music.
With that info out of the way, I'll show you the different school uniforms.
Currently I don't have solid designs for school uniforms in Slabun but I only have one for the All Boys School.
The only requirements is that the student wear the uniform properly with no major damages, a few accessories such badges are allowed. Their socks, shoes and hair style/colour aren't fix and it allows for the student to do whatever. Currently only two students have gotten in trouble due to the dress code. Haruki Sumino only wears part of the blazer as the right side was majorly damaged in a fight and he refuses to get a new one, so he just wear the left side and clips the rest to his sleeveless sweater. Star didn't really get in trouble for his uniform, but he got in trouble due to his hair which is dyed to a galaxy effect, but since he wasn't exactly breaking an dresscode rules, he was let go.
As I mentioned before that Mew-Ville uniforms only became permanent recently. This was because prior to the creation of Haruki, all the Mew-Ville students wore different school uniforms despite attending the same school. Back then I wanted the students to have more unquie uniforms similar to how students in Higurashi no Naku koro Ni had different school uniforms, MewHigh School was also like that. However I decided recently (like literally yesterday) it would be better for the students to wear the same uniform to make it more consistant, this also brings up the issue in Twins Together Ultimate. Half way through the story, Fuyuki and his friends were shown in both their different uniforms and the blazer uniform. I hadn't really explained why this happened and so I decided that instead of throwing in a bs reason, I would just change the school uniform. Much easier.
I will still be drawing refs of characters in their old school uniforms just for development notes and progress notes. but for now here is some designs I had of the old Mew-Ville uniforms.
These are the All Boys School uniform in Slabun.
I havn't designed any emblems yet for the Ruby City schools yet but theres some uniforms.
