Well here is the start of my armor for Karliah from Skyrim in her Nightingale armor.
Its all craft foam, 2mm and hot glue is used where the black lines are, the lower half has not had its detailing glued together yet. It is still yet to be painted and some parts are only sticked on with tape for the moment. Ignore the thicker black lines, that's where I made some errors, but they will not be noticeable once painted.
Arm armor has been made, but the mannequin does not have arms so..anyway haha
1st of 3, for my group Skyrim group of the Nightingales: Karliah, Brynjolf and the Dragonborn. I'll be making all three, two female and one male. Fun times ahead haha ^.^
Please Note: This costume has been completed. This photo was removed from my shared account with my fiancee to feature here in my portfolio. I left the description the same as it was on the previous account. To see the finished costume, visit my shared account with my fiancee: Piperonni
EDIT: Wow! I just smacked my forehead. I cannot believe I did that. Two of the front panels are backwards. They should each be on the opposite's side. Fixing that right now. Next update, they will be where they should.
I've got about 10 or so days left until AWA. This is definitely a costume I never thought would get made, especially out of leather. Keeping my fingers crossed. I just hope the end product looks as fantastic as the progress.
All that's left is to dye the remaining pieces, finishing detailing a few pieces, add the embellishment in the stomach region (that blank area), finish the boots, finish the leg armor, adjust the hood, and try to complete a sword in time for the convention.
Oh gods I have no idea how to catagorize this. there's no papercraft section under fanart that I can find ;__;
It's not a very good picture, but I've been thinking about doing Nightingale cosplay (insane, I know) and this is the first step: mini paper prototype! I'm thinking it's actually plausible. It'll be a godawful amount of layers and quite a lot of material (whatever I happen to use), but... plausible.
This is from Skyrim in case you didn't already know somehow, haha...

Did a bit more water shaping today. Still have a ton of trimming and refining to do on most of the armor. Might redo where the buckle is as far as the under-skirt is concerned in order for the "butt-flap" to have proper placement. So far I am happy with where it is going.
After the body is complete, I'm going to work on the pants, then the boot covers, and finish off with the gauntlets. The mask will be completed along with the hooded cloak.
I'm going to try and make a sword in time for AWA. If not, then I have some scimitars that I can use. Eventually I would like to make the Nightingale bow.
