Loving the design, she really reminds me of an older character of mine.

Thanks for the comments guys! Yeah, I understand the form vs. function thing and I definitely opted to have a little of both. Obviously, if the outfit were totally functional, she would look like and eskimo or something, lol, with absolutely no hint of her feminine silhouette because of all the layers of clothing and fur. This, of course, is based on the preconception that she would be in extremely cold weather all day, everyday, which is usually not the case even in snowy climates. If I were to take it further down the typical fantasy route, she would defintely look less practical.

Looks great from every other perspective I could think of.

And then consider the fact that this is a fantasy illustration, and that form tends to win over function.

Typical true to life medieval bad guy? Kinda boring

The Lich King from Lord of the Rings? Much more interesting

A suggestion, the combination of bare midriff and arms and heavy fur may look good, which it dose, but it would be unbearable to wear, if it is warm the fur covered parts would sweat like it was in a sauna an if it is cold the unprotected parts would, well, be cold. So you should either take away most of the fur (for warm weather) or cover her in it (for cold weather)

That's not completely true.
As a fellow Swede, and well adverse in hiking above the pole-circle, if this would be worn in cold weather, then adding a cloak for protection in harsh cold is enough, whilst leaving the parts that really need to be manoeuvrable easy to move.
Likewise, the shoulders do not sweat as much as the lower arms and abdomen does, or indeed the groin-area, which mean that the clothing would be suitable for autumn-type temperatures also.
Looks like he did his homework.

You have a point, but I still think it looks a bit to cold for anything but summer. But than again it look more like ceremonial costume than anything you really hunt in so it is possible that it is not meant to be fully practical

Yeah, I've hiked in snow before and have found myself sweating profusely, LOL. And yes, most hunters probably would not go around carrying the skulls of their former animal hunting partners, which, in my imagination, are what adorn her mantle. There's always a bit of balancing between practical and impractical ideas with fantasy design.

If you want inspiration on practical leather designee I suggest a look on the Sami and North American Indian clothes.

I also take back my earlier statement that she should be covered in fur she just need the naked parts covered against cool wind (it is surprising how much just one layer of cloths protect against the weather), needles and thorns.
