I am just a bit curious. What do Bosmer wear? Obviously they wouldn't have any cotton (or is that not obvious.. no plant stuff?) and I feel like leather and furs would be a main choice all because of the green Pact and such. What do you guys/girls think? I have seen the conceptual art for each faction and the Bosmer clothing just doesn't fit my imagination (since of course mine is the most important haha).
In this image they don't have any clothing so it is hard for me get a feel for their 'fashion'. Any ideas? As you can probably tell, this is a REALLY IMPORTANT question so I would like to see as many heated debates about lore as I can, alright?

And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

Those who are not parts of nudist colonies :P seem to wear leather as their normal garb from what I can gather off of pictures and stuff. But metal should also be fine as well. Message Sordak; he's read seemingly all the books and might have a good answer for you after insulting your intelligence a few times.

Tribal bosmer wear hides, furs, bones and other non-plant material. Civilized ones are more likely to wear traditional clothes and armor.

Sounds good, though what do you mean by 'traditional' clothes and armor?

made out of leather and bones.
The ones you saw in the trailer should give you the impression.

Metal is certainly not unheard of but not the norm.
The Helm of Oreyn Bearclaw should give you the idea.

beeing a hunter civilization, leather and bones are plenty. Metal, not so much.
Think about it. you live in a huge Jungle.
Your mining operations are restricted to such a degree that does not hurt *any* plantlife.

So the Metal is usually going into weapons rather than armor.
also thats one of the reasons why bosmer prefer archery, they make their bows from bone and dont have to require any more refined material.

as for the Savage bosmer: leather loincloth would do the job.

I have to say that is what I always imagined and it is one reason that any bosmer who is like hey I am from valenwood I would probably ehhhh fuck that you can get the hell away from me man. Eating fallen enemies is pretty intimidating now all I can picture is some crazy ass Bosmer eating people wearing that shit. Nope just nope.

Bone weapons and armor.... somehow this reminds me much of The Betrayed...

Oh, we totally need to do a TES version of Texas Chainsaw massacre with Bosmer and a few Breton teenagers.

Almost, but I'm talking a full blown video of a creepy bosmer family in a house in the middle of no where and a bunch of bretons get stranded there and picked off one by one and eaten.
A BOSMER LEATHER FACE! Would be kinda small, but not as weird as the transvestite leather face from Texas Chainsaw massacre next generation.

did you read a dance in the fire?
it ends with (spoiler) the bosmer serving the imperial ambassadors human meat as some kind of jest.
