  3. What do you call colour edits that make a character look like someone else?

I love being able to make colour edits of characters so they can look like a different character. For example, in Capcom vs. SNK 2, I like turning Chang into Santa Claus by giving him a white beard and a red outfit! Even in already existing colour palletes, some characters have palletes that make them look like other characters. A great example is a colour edit for Fukua in Skullgirls which makes her look like Decapre from Street Fighter.

But what do you call these colour edits? Look-alikes? Cosplays? Tributes? Shout outs? I mean, certainly there has to be a name for them! What is the name for it? I call them look-alikes, but I am sure there is a better name for them.

That's how SNK spend most of their budget for KOF XIII's useless feature.

I most often hear, and use, "references." Not quite the perfect term but it works well enough.

I remember trying to have Mai Shiranui look like Shiva (FF7 version) in Capcom vs SNK, it wasn't perfect but it looked okay. It's just that Mai uses Fire and Shiva uses Ice. I recall Capcom vs SNK had a janky way of using custom colors though.

I remember using Capcom vs. SNK 2's colour edit mode to give Chun Li her colours from the Van Damme movie.
