Skyrim Cosplay - Nightingale Armor by Aicosu Skyrim Cosplay - Nightingale Armor 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!

Amazing.

The shadowing from the hood adds to the look quite well.

I though this was an in-game screenshot at first, I was like "Ooooh what mods does she use?" I can't believe this is a photograph! Awesome cosplay. Spot on!

Great job on the costume. Looks just like in the game. The pose might've been better with a foot on the opening in the wall, while staring at the other side of the river, but hey. :p

I haven't played Skyrim that much and so am not overly familiar with it's arms and armors; this however is great work. It looks very functional, I've seen more than a few movies that would have been enhanced about a million times by this sort of craftsmanship. Great job!

If I was sitting by the river, and I saw a nightingale standing there like that, I'd shit myself, throw all the money I had at her, then jump into the river.
Best armor in skyrim, very beautiful cosplay.
