The Ottoman’s wife

The Ottoman’s wife is the latest addition to the Concept Art gallery, the last of the four main characters to be added. Putting together a plausible Arabic steampunk ensemble was tough—corsets are right out, and goggles make her look like a pilot. In the end we went with a Moroccan-style djellaba, updated with some utility pockets and hoodie drawstrings.

There’s also an indoor outfit in the works, but the hair is proving difficult to model.
