Well, Reference images are so hard to come by…
Basically I’m not so much a person to stick with any one culture, But I’d say my interested style of tribal wear is probably closest to Native American Indians (Excluding all the frilly bits), but with a tropical islander heavily in mind as well.
I’m pretty much into “fictional” as I’m building up a rather unique fictional race. I’m right into the concept of loincloths but not where they are too exposed, like say the Africans, Australian Aborigines or pacific islanders. I much rather lots of leather and pelt elements. Laced up trousers, tall boots. No bright colours, all natural tans and browns.
Jewelry: bracelets, necklaces, armbands made up with bone, shells, wood, feathers, leather straps and cords.
I also like the idea of distinct patches of pelt/leather hand sewn to form the clothing. Belts: Lots of straps, multiple belts even. Poncho or cloak made of pelt/leather or heavy worn fabric is a good idea too.
Soooo many Idea’s LOL.
I’ll start with some of the scorpion king, Very close in terms of Rock’s costume. I love the cut up pieces all joined together. A great costume
