Full Nightingale armor from Skyrim. All handmade except for the boots, leggings, and undershirt. Made with leather, pleather, vinyl, and plain black cloth. Silver designs done with silver and metallic black paint.
This is my completed Aela the Huntress Cosplay from the video game Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. I made every single piece of this cosplay, from sewing the outfit to creating the armor and even doing the makeup, and I'm very proud of myself
I'll be at PAX East next weekend wearing this costume on Friday! Hope to see you there!
I made the rest of the armor, besides the axe. The axe was made by my friend Daniel Kim.
For this shoot I dirtied up the cloth parts of my armor a bit more, and I added way more dramatic rust effects to match Volpin's helmet. Before the rust was so subtle it almost wasn't there at all, and the main complaint I got about this costume was that it was "too clean" - and I agree! It looks much better now!
