    You do not need to dye them.  They automatically match cape textures, so just texture your cape how you want them to look.

    Even though my favorite color is blue, I would appreciate it if options were available to others.

    Capes are typically unavailable to most players.

    In fact, they're considered an extremely rare vanity item. 
    However, being able to dye them, or to apply banner patterns to them, sounds like a lovely idea!

    Well there were plans for personalized eltyra skins a while back, and the current elytras also color themselves after capes worn by a player (such as the official minecon ones).

    So I'm not sure how Dyed elytra would work, but it would be interesting to see.

    This would be cool along with a separate armor slot for elytra so the armor is not all ugly.

    What if it was banners instaed, then you have even more cosmetic creativity.

    Oh yeah! You could combine it with banners to get elytras with patterns.

    What about combining the Elytra with chest armour but being able to give it different looks or designs like being able to make your chest armour look like lava (magma) while having a completely different design and/or colour for the Elytra part of your armour?

    Bilbo Baggins, even if you do have a cape, individual textures have to be made by Mojang to match capes, so if you have an Optifine cape the elytra won't be changed. I personally love the idea of dyeable elytra, and I'm indifferent to which dye method to use - the 16 colors, leather-armor hexcode or banner designs all sound fine.

    Would be a nice feature since capes are rare.

    I'd love to see this, they could be dyed to better match with someone's skin or could be used as a more recognizable way to make 'teams' in games without the restriction of leather armor. Ideally, I like the idea of banners being mapped onto elytra the way they can be used on shields, would definitely take some experimentation to find how our designs would work best. Glad this is under review.

    sino, que cuando consigues una elytra, ya venga con distintos colores (colores aleatorios)

    There could be different kinds of wings that you could craft once you have elytra, for cosmetic purposes, like bat wings which you craft with a bat wing from bats and elytra. Or none wings which are bones and elytra. Or feathery wings, feathers and elytra, and so on

    I think it's a good idea

    to paint elytra and for example combine them with banners

    You should be able to put banner patterns on them, just like shields

    although this would be cool it would sorta take away from having a cape, like the elytra is the whole reason i brought an optifine cape.

    @Bilbo Baggins

    You realise capes are extremely rare, and if you even have one, your elytra can only use the pattern of your cape.
