Special Rare Marking: Cosmos
Cosmos is a marking that adds colorful galaxy like patterns on the beasts’ body. There is no restriction on how exactly these patterns have to look like. It can be a simple mixture of different colors with a shooting star and some speckles to imitate stars or imitate a real, existing galaxy. As long as it loosely looks like space it is good to go!
In general, any color except for grays and blacks can be used to create this marking. However, only up to two (2) different ones may be used at a time.
Speckles may be added within the cosmic marking as well, even if the geno does not officially have it. Be careful to not add them in any area Cosmos does not touch, as the marking has to be present in the phenotype for this! Additionally it is allowed to add small “tails” to these speckles to create small shooting stars.
This marking was inspired by auroras, night skies, galaxies, shooting stars and space in general, feel free to take them as inspiration if you have troubles designing your beast!
Relevant to: –

Can be white: No
Layering: Designer’s choice

Quick Facts Guide
Cosmos allows for any color to be used no matter the base coat color except blacks and grays. However, you may only use two (2) different colors at a time.
Cosmos must have either a soft edge or be textured with a soft edge.
– You may add Speckles on top of the Cosmos marking to create a galaxy like look, even if your beast does not have the marking Speckles officially
– Please be careful to make the Speckles small enough so they do not resemble Spotting
– The Speckles may have small tails to resemble shooting stars
– They are also restricted to the Cosmos markings’ area. If your marking goes from butt to mid back you may not add Speckles on the head! (Exception: your beast has Speckles officially in the Pheno)
Imitating galaxies, big shooting starts, etc:
– Are entirely allowed as long as roughly 30% of the original design are still visible
– You’re welcome to have a look at images of auroras, galaxies, shooting stars, night skies, and so on to find inspirations for your design
Combinations with other markings
Cosmos has no distinct maximum range but should not cover more than 70% of the beast.
Cosmos has no distinct minimum range, but must be present in a noticeable way on the beast.
