    I need some explanation about and English expression

    I'm translating a page from English to Brazilian Portuguese and I have a problem with the expression "silver illusion".
    It was used to describe that little thing hung on the boy's pants.
    What is 'silver illusion'?

    The legendary silver illusion boy: That's just the name of the character/figure. Just like Power Rangers, each character perhaps has an assigned color.

    So, is it a kind of colour?

    I guess so. Silver illusion seems to be used for names of jewelry but I would just translate it literally.

    Ok, thanks for the help. I will just do as you said. In brazilian portuguese, there's no usual expression that means that color, so I will translate it literally.

    I would translate silver and illusion separately, not silver illusion as a set.

    I've finally undertood, now. Thanks again, Mikkih. Translating it separately, I've found a usual translation for it.
