Iza's headgear in the first book of the original Encantadia is decorated with feathers to represent the air gem.

Karylle and Gabbi Garcia as Alena

Alena's new costume uses a more vibrant hue of green compared to the original one, which is a mix of silver and glittering crystals.

Instead of two separate headgears like the one used by Karylle, Gabbi's headdress is now a single, closed one featuring a longitudinal ridge.

Diana Zubiri and Sanya Lopez as Danaya

Sanya's costume as Danaya is the one that closely resembles the original warrior costume. In the past, leaves were used as hair ornaments for Danaya but the new version no longer uses them.

Diana Zubiri's costume in the original Encantadia is composed of different shades of brown, whereas Sanya's warrior outfit has only one shade.
