Clothing For Character

I have made a character in blender and rigged it. My game will have armor sets, clothing sets, etc.
So, I am not sure how to attach the clothing.
My IDEA is:
Make the clothing have a skeleton, that is attached to the skeleton of the character.

Would that work? I can paint the clothing so it would bend properly.
We want to be able to animate JUST the character, so the clothing will fit without needing extra work.

you should animate armour too. I used blender and ogre exporter. Basicly you will have one Armature for your character and for all his clothes. Animate and export all objects togetther to Ogre.

Then just attach/detach or hide some objects of clothes you don’t need in a situation.
