She is a shepherdess. As a child, she moved with her father and sheep every winter from the Shiverpeak Mountains to the mild regions and back again in the spring. "Itinerant shepherding means that the shepherd follows the forage with his flocks depending on the season," she says. It's a challenging life but one she loves.
She also evokes the peace of winter, when they can be cut off by snow without electricity or running water, the happiness of spring and the lambing season, and the backbreaking tasks of summertime - haymaking and sheepshearing - inspiring us all to look at the countryside and those who work there with new appreciation.
The wandering shepherdess travels along paths that have been passed down from generation to generation in the family. She has them all in her head - but even the sheep are puzzled when she deviates from the familiar paths.
Your flock consists of Longhorn Sheep are a type of animal named for their four long, fine horns. They can be found mostly in the Shiverpeak Mountains and Kryta. The male variant of the Longhorns are the Longhorn Rams. The longhorn sheep also have a reddish-brown fur pattern variant, often spotted in Kryta. Most of the Shiverpeak variants are a more camouflaged white.
When herding helps a special stick. It has a hook at the bottom, with which you can grab the sheep. This is necessary, for example, when you need to pull them out of a ditch. The stick also serves as a walking aid. You can lean on it while herding

In the last time I made mostly outfits for human characters and neglected my norn... I kept thinking, what else can I do with Bear Ceremonial Leggings. Unexpectedly I had the idea to make a shepherdess. So I added Sheepskin Mantle (the shoulder armor part is decorated with sheep skull and edged with fur, which again perfectly matches the leg armor), put on Wizard's Hat and added Ritualist Staff as weapon. Of course, with all the beads and small medallions, it looks a bit more stylized than, say, a Ravenswood Branch, but it's still made of natural wood. The armor colors are also left natural, a small accent - faded blue - I used for her blouse to give the colorfulness of Staff a balance. Her stuff is stored in Intricate Huntsman's Backpack (she can use the few slats as fence arrows :))

An amazing look that works both as a shepherdess and shaman.
Great interplay of textures and materials and the staff fits the theme and outfit very well.

The wizard hat is the non fitting piece her imho, but it's rarely seen on screens. Everything else - perfectly fit with the intended result. Gold for you.

Thank you for Gold.
It may be that a wizard hat is not 100% hit, but it serves its purpose: protects from sun, rain etc.. And that shepherds wear such hats is also true :)

The story with the accompanying screenshots is so cute! The look is amazing too, love the more peaceful character design as opposed to a lot of jagged warrior type characters other people create, your look stands out! She rly looks like a shepherd!
