Desert Garb by Pyrosity Desert Garb by Pyrosity
Desert garb for Alexa! This is what she’d be wearing while in the central Caluran heartland. It’s an arid steppe region which contains a patchwork of more desert-like pockets. In the c.330s and 340s in what came to be known as the “Red Scourge", severe drought and poor soil management coupled with the characteristically strong winds in the region to create storms of red and brown tinged dust (a similar situation to the Dust Bowl in our 1930s). The damage was never fully recovered from and in many regions, the Red Scourge still persists, and it is important to take precautions and shield one’s face from the storms.

By contrast, the northern region of Calur, consisting mostly of cold steppe foothills leading up to the mountain ranges of southern Rrustam Vana, is mostly unaffected by the Red Scourge. This region is where Alexa’s hometown is located, and where you’d see her in her usual “default" attire.

(yes realize her whiskers poke through. Will fix when I clean all these up for a final compilation)

Dude I'm totally digging that face mask/hood combo. Very down to earth and believable. Wow, I love how you brought in some unique ecological catastrophes from our timeline and injected them into this world. The Dust Bowl was a trully Biblical disaster at the time if you lived anywhere between Colorado and Missouri.

Thank you ^^

I want to do some revisions to this design after some very thoughtful insight from Scott Ruggels over on FA, hopefully that will come soon.

And yeah, the Dust bowl... really interesting crisis that is very important in our nation's history, I feel it goes under-appreciated by most. The general idea fit in so well with how I wanted to develop the Confederacy, that I couldn't resist mimicking it.
