[Help] Invisible Robes and Red-Hued Argonians?

So, a few things. First, I don't use reddit; at least, I didn't before now. If I breach any reddiquette, as it were, please go easy on me! Second, I have extensively hunted for what might be causing my issue. I have a few leads, but I'm here because I think it's possible that one (or many) of you may be able to guide me through this in a way that both makes sense and maybe makes this process faster for me. A lot of the info I've found makes 0 sense to my little peanut brain. Apologies in advance!

The Problem: I have been downloading mods and starting new saves for a few days. I have a lot of characters I want to play! Today I started my mage character, an Argonian. Both facets of this character ended up causing interesting issues. Namely: despite being a dark blue in color, Vistha looks… red? And I'm not sure if it's a product of my lighting mods, a bug with one of my other mods, or what. None of my other lizardfolk have had this red-tinted issue, so I feel like it must be a recent mod, but I don't even know where to begin. (That or it's because he's blue? I don't know. I used Racemenu to make a custom color but it's definitely dark blue.) The second issue is his being a mage. You see, when I got the Novice Robes of Destruction, the robe part just… doesn't appear on him. It's equipped, but he looks naked, save the hood/bracers/boots he has on otherwise. At first I was convinced a recent mod must have caused this, until I realized I hadn't tried equipping the robes on any of my other characters… so it could be any of them. For both issues I used Show Racemenu Alternative to try and see if Vistha's colors or size were the problem, but neither did anything upon being changed. I started a new save, remade him, and both happened again.

According to the internet, invisible clothes are usually a mesh error. Rustic Clothing is, to my knowledge, the only mod I have that might affect these specific robes. So I disabled it, but it didn't change a thing. I looked through all my clothing-specific mods, of which there are not overly many, but I don't even know where to begin. Same goes for the red tint, I don't even know where to start.

I am willing to put in the work to find the mod causing one or both of these issues (depending on if the red tint is a lighting thing or a genuine problem), but I was hoping maybe someone here could help me to speed things up, which would be far less stressful. If no one can, I'll go the long way and document my findings. Someone else might run into this, after all, if Sims modding errors have taught me anything.

I don't use an ENB, only lighting mods, which should be in the mod list.

I'm sorry if anything comes across as less than stellar. I use Vortex, Loot, and xEdit, and always try to be mindful of requirements and compatibility. I may have messed up somewhere, though, and missed it. (I'm also sorry for how long-winded this is, I get talky when I'm nervous.)
