Skyrim Cosplay - Little Nightingale by Aicosu Skyrim Cosplay - Little Nightingale by Aicosu
Sheila as Karliah (Nightingale Armor) from the Elder Scrolls: Skyrim

Stunning photos by :iconordinaryriches:

I'm going to try and make this description without any arrow in the knee or sweetroll jokes. XD

It feels good to put up photos of this costume. Definitely one of our bigger projects and one of the most exciting. And my first experience with full covering face paint.

The entire 'leatherwork' of the armor is actually all just craft foam. If you want to find out the in depth process on how it was made, click here: [link]

There will definitely will be much more to come for this costume! See you at Phoenix ComiCon & Anime Expo!

How did you do the ears? I've been looking into doing skyrim elf cosplay as an archmage.

I really liked Karliah. She was a unique character and one of the few with a unique voice. The only other one I know is Barbus! Yes the talking dog X3
But she was cute in a way if that makes any sense.

Definitely the nicest thief ever !

I'm not even going to say how much I enjoy your cosplays...
I was just wondering-do you do makeup yourself or do you ask a professional to do it? ^^

This is beyond awesome^^

The armor is greatly detailed (must've taken alot of time and nerves to get it like this) and you look adorable as elf.
But I have to say even if you actually wanted to portray an dunmer your faces shape looks more bosmer like.

Are the magenta eyes photoshopped or are they colored contact lense?

Yeah I mean, really my face could only be Bosmer or Imperial but eh whatever, I like me some Karliah. And thank you!

My eyes are contacts!

Huh...I'll go with Dark Elf. Either way it's really cool with the make-up and the armor design. It's fantastic.

It's allmost unbeliveable what you can do with makeup, and this is a proof to that nothing is impossible!
She is stunningly beautiful and looks like she's just entered our world from skyrim!

All this in two words:
Apsolutely fantastic!

Nicely done! The makeup looks great. As always, I'm insanely jealous of your skills with craft foam armor. I won't get much of a chance to get out from behind our booth at PHXCC, but hopefully I'll catch a glimpse of you!
