Spindrift - Costume designs Wen 2.0

I took an other shot at one of Wen's outfits, just like I redid Kimur's outfit at some point and entirely revamped an other Spindrift character we've yet to meet (although I leaked some info about him here and there :P) . It's the same thing essentially, but I've made it a bit more Wen (I think it's because I got to know the character better since I've worked on this project over 2 years now (or has it been 3 already? I lost track) - now I know Wen would never wear long gloves casually) And also, I decided to rework it because the old designs are ... well.. old :P.

Here's the previous version if you are interested: Spindrift - Costume designs1 by ElsaKroese

:bulletred: You may have already seen the redesign, as it was my previous Topwebcomic incentive, but me uploading this here means that I've a new incentive up and you can vote for the comic here: :D topwebcomics.com/vote/13319/de…
:bulletred: For those who stumbled upon this and have no idea who this character is, It's Morwenna, from my webcomic Spindrift, which you can read here : www.spindrift-comic.com/comic/…

Beautifull! I love it <3
Was looking for inspiration on what my dnd character Isaaka (half-elf monk with sailor background) could wear and this is perfect!

Wow!
How lifelike body /and face/ she got. Oh, the outfit. That green skirt like stuff looks pretty cool and ancient AND badass at the same time. Bonus point for the sleeveless but long necked yet opened top /or how the hell called that.../ :D

I love it! It's refreshing to see a female costume that isn't overly-sexualized or impractical. I really love the skirt over the pants.

I love your costume designs so much, I wish I could put in words how much xD
I hope I can one day be this creative!

Ding! Ding! 
The red fluffy Orango voted, and his vote is much more worthy than Fairies' one!

Ding!
Voting completed. Have a nice day!

... Try as I might, I don't find anything 'wrong' with the old designs! What concerns were prompting the decision of a reboot, if I may ask?

You may!
I think it works as a design on it's own, the old version - but wasn't exactly spot on for the character and the context.
I got rid of the black and white ribbon on the leg a long time ago in all of the outfits (Initially I had her wear it as some kind of half-breed symbolism but Wen wouldn't be pushing that if she had a say in it, and I had some undesirable associations with the whole concept, so I ditched it.)
The long gala glove from the old design doesn't really work with the character either and as she's acquiring this outfit in a location that has warm climate, well even the idea of wearing a leather corset on a hot summer day made me sweat, the idea of wearing the same thing several days made me shudder :P, so I changed that into a cotton or linnen top with the sleeveless bolero thing, which made more sense to me.
I liked the layered look of the pants/skirt so I kept that.


And. Thanks for the vote! :D

Thank you! Glad you like it.
I figured she would wear leather gloves while working a lot of the time. If I was her I wouldn't want to also wear long gala-like gloves when I'm out adventuring. They aren't the most practical pieces of clothing. There's also 2 other reasons for me to get rid of the gloves, but sharing them would be getting into spoiler territory.

That makes plenty of sense, she seems like a reasonable (but somewhat stubborn) character. 
Aaaah them spoilers *O*
