I'm building a world where the main characters' civilization is seen as warlike and aggressive by outsiders (although this is not necessarily accurate). When designing their clothing aesthetics, I was inspired especially by the barbarian armor in Breath of the Wild (here's a picture for those not familiar). This type of armor is not uncommon in games (e.g. the fur armor in the Elder Scrolls series, some orc designs in Dungeons and Dragons, the characters in Horizon Zero Dawn), but I don't know where the original idea is from.
These clothing items have a few things in particular that I'm looking for:
- Have fur (usually white) as part of the armor
- May use bone, especially animal skulls (can be a decorative element)
- Incorporate animal skin/leather
Rather than look at these games for reference, I'd much rather find a real culture that used clothing like this. So far, none of the groups I've looked at have armor made like this.
Which groups/civilizations inspired this type of clothing?
EDIT: It wasn't clear in my original question that I'm more interested in the aesthetics of the "armor" rather than the protective capability. I'm curious about clothing for situations other than combat (everyday life or ceremonies) as well as armor.
