Sometimes they also change one corner into a blue top or a full blue gi
and sometimes the extra color is red instead of blue, (more traditional IIRC) but that is never used for a gi

This is really interesting to me because I recently did a judo tournament where I deliberately limited myself from using sacrifice throws. Wanted to really test my judo. Well, I sucked miserably and got thrown for wazari multiple times and ippon a couple. My question to you is - should I just give in and build a game around sacrifice throws? I really want to be that big o goshi guy, but the ground is clearly my advantage.

The IJF mandate for having a blue and a white player was years ago. By now every player is to have two uniforms, one white and one blue. Clearly this is not being enforced, but it is the rule.
No idea why they are using the red belt.
I will say that scoring errors drop big time when you use the white gi/blue gi system. Some hard core Japanese types have major problems with the blue gi, and refuse to wear it."Out of every hundred men, ten shouldn't even be there, eighty are just targets, nine are the real fighters, and we are lucky to have them, for they make the battle. Ah, but the one, one is a warrior, and he will bring the others back." -- Hericletus, circa 500 BC

The blue gi is optional at local and regional tournaments. The tournament director can require them, but most won't .
If you go to nationals, a ladder tournament, or other point tournament in the US at least, you will need two judogi, one blue, one white.
Other than that, nobody rush out and buy two judogi for competing.

Note that all this is just my opinion and standards, and is not a slam on you personally or SHUFU's standards.
Congrats on the promotion!
