SO I was thinking it would be really cool to cosplay as a Nightingale. And then I started drawing the armor.

Well, I think it might be possible. It would just be very hard.

Finally Some Progress. The mannequin of duct tape has been really helpful. I'm gonna figure out the back today and get the skirt/belt taped together, and then I can finally order some craft foam.

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.

Wish me luck!

Work done by myself

Oh gods I have no idea how to catagorize this. :P 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...

Just some garage shots of what I've been working on this past week. Next I need to give it some underlying structure so it will be symmetrical when I start hardening it up with resin.

Very rarely do I upload pencil sketches, but I feel if I were to do any more to this I'd ruin it.
Anyway, this is my Character from Elder Scrolls 5:Skyrim. I went with a female dark elf, and pursued the thieves and assassins guild.
Anyone whose played the Thieves Guild Storyline to the end is blessed by Nocturnal with this awesome set of armor.


Edit: Now in color

Took a break from costume work but finally my motivation returned.


Bad picture of me wearing what I have finished so far: 31.media.tumblr.com/de28cbaea9…

What's left to do?

Shoulders - figure out how to attach them (more) comfortable
Sew side flaps onto the shirt worn under the chest piece to mimic the protective side flaps of the armor
Props - Nightingale blade? Bow?

Optional:
Make this a Khajiit and forget about the mask...
Paint the symbol silver

Well the main parts (top and skirt) have been painted, detailed and painted again. The arm armor had also been painted and I only recently finished the shoulder armor.
I have figured out the face mask yet, but all in good time~

For Karliah I won't be doing knee armor just because I might be kneeling down when posing for photos with my bow.
But the Dragonborn and Brynjolf will have all the armor.
