Also clothing and hair color. But lately, I have too many friends to give them all different colors, so I'm starting to standardize to give social groups all the same color.

I used to always make friend-colors according to my color scheme and the personality of the LJ, but I've stopped doing it in recent months.

In addition to some of the above choices:

* whim
* what colors I might associate with a person in my mind
* colors of the person's lj (I think Frances' might be red because that suited her lj formating when I first gave her a color and I think Julie's is green for the same reason (although I may be misremembering))
* Colors I like I generaly use more often. Maroon with black lettering is probably one of my more standard choices when I don't have something that inclines me in a particular direction

With the exceptions of situations where there is a really strong association or something of some kind, or when I'm feeling random, I usually assign colors based on where I know someone from or social groupings. Usually because of this, each of my friends pages will be predominately one or two colors, since they're grouped in the same way.

Sometimes there are other thematic associations of some kind. Like the gayish boys are mostly dark blue.

I assign color by current geographic location (Claremont, Chicago, Upstate New York, and Other).
