Cosmetics items are skins that can be applied to all warframes. These items include holographic badges, armor, helmets, custom animations, and syandana scarves. Some of them are available by default, others can be acquired through completing Events, through the Alerts system or purchased through the Market with Platinum.
Colour Picker ExtensionsEdit
- Main article: Colour Picker Extension
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's colors under the Attachments section of the Appearance tab in the Arsenal, sharing their colors with Syandanas. Certain warframes such as Banshee and 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, taking damage or sliding will make it intermittently emit a translucent energy shield over the Warframe's chest, using the Warframe's energy color. This is a purely cosmetic effect.
- 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. These animations are available by default.
- Main article: Category:Helmet
Every warframe can be equipped with alternate helmets aside from their default one. All helmets prior to Update 10 included stat changes which altered the way that the warframe played. The first helmet to not include stats was the Raknis helmet. Alternative helmets can be acquired from the Market with Platinum or from Alerts in the form of Blueprints.
Syandana are cosmetic garments, worn on the back of the Warframe that feature cloth physics, swaying to the Warframe's movement. Except for Warframe-specific syandanas like the Mortos and Valkyr's Bonds, 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. Most Syandanas can be bought at the Market for 50; however, the Misa Prime was only available via the Ember Prime Access, while the Noru Prime Syandana is available through Rhino Prime Access, and the Phased Asa Syandana was only available through the Steam Winter Sales 2013.
"Syandana" is a Sanskrit word स्यन्दन that can mean "flowing".

This holographic badge displays the emblem of your Clan on your warframe's right shoulder. It can only be acquired through the Market. Should an unalleged Tenno bear this emblem, the badge will instead show a Lotus flower as seen to the right.
These badges can be acquired through participating in Events. The badge displays a holographic symbol of the specific event on the warframe's left shoulder.
These commemorative holographic badges were awarded to the top 1000 players in the now retired Global Kill Leaderboard. They are no longer available.
