For those that don't know: The Bene Gesserit are essentially Space Illuminati comprised entirely of superhuman women, who sexually imprint people for political power and for their clandestine breeding plan to create a genetically superior being to rule the universe. Simple, Right? It's hard to say that they're really "bad guys," since there are Bene Gesserit characters that Frank writes as sympathetic and relatable and in fact do very good and constructive things. However, they are manipulative and mysterious as hell and their ultimate motivation is control; they've avoided being an actual political power, yet they are unavoidably a part of it.
They don't have a ton of description other than that they are super-hot in a sexy nun sort of way, and they wear simple, black hoods. I wouldn't say these are super-simple, but I tried to go for bold and stark designs. I've used accents of gold since I love how it was used in the David Lynch film, but I also used hints of orange. Here's my theory; back in the day, royalty wore purple because it was a very expensive dye, so it became a color of power and wealth. In Dune, Spice is the most valuable substance in the universe which is the color orange, so it would make sense to me that orange is the new purple! I'm trying to find a text Frank wrote that would support this, but for now I am inferring it.
Oh and they did have hair, Lynch tool liberties with that.
