Competition: Mr. Dead in Your Pocket

Finished
Mr. Dead in Your Pocket

Prompt

Fashion in the wasteland is a wonderful, terrible thing. Styles range from the simple and utilitarian, to eccentric, barbaric sets designed to strike fear into the hearts of all who see the wearer. There also appears to be a distinct surplus in bondage gear. Priorities, huh?

Your prompt is simple: If your character was wandering the wastes, what would their getup and gear be like? Create a piece of artwork displaying their apocalyptic-best, in all its gritty glory.

The top three submissions will earn points as follows:

1st- 6 points 2nd- 5 points 3rd- 4 points

All other valid submissions will earn a point for participation.

How to Submit

Submissions should be made in .png or .jpg format.

Took her normal robes and ran her and them through the wringer.

She knows her skin is fake and even if it doesn't feel NICE, it won't actually harm her to have it burn/wear down/get buffeted off by sand etc. And her astromech is having too much trouble rolling around in the sand. Or maybe is on broken rollers. So she uses her pants/excess cloth to make him a sling that she can put him in on her back. Shoes and anklets maybe get used for something, like to melt into attempts at tools, or oh, as a canteen. Boot water sling. Yeah. Shoulder pads either ripped off with her arm or came loose in crash, so she gave it to droid as a sunhat. The soles of her feet are worn clean of synthflesh so the metal is showing. Probably missing some little toes, but she kept her other arm!

And bit scruffy/dirty/bloody around face because that part of her is mostly real skin and blood and it doesn't take to the constant sun so well. Blistering.

Babeh stays nicely shaded with her sashes all tied up around her middle to provide a little coverage and protection around hips and thighs too.
