So, because I love to live dangerously - defined here as calling up Wendy when I know she's prepping for a majorly important interview - I asked her about this. Me: "Those big yellow square things on Rayek's headband and around his chest and waist, when he got new duds back in 'Kings"... are they metal? Gold, perhaps?" Her: "No. It'd get in the way, feel heavy. That ornamentation would be flexible, like heavy woven cloth. Or better yet, leather. Maybe painted with something that had gold dust mixed in. They'd be all raggedy by now." Which is why he looks as he does on the upcoming cover. (Which also, just now, suggests to me that his sense of humor much have improved greatly during his absence. Why? So he can keep himself in stitches.)
