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!

Say "Aye" if you would be paralyzed just by looking at the thing in person-personally, i would say "Sithis whisper be upon you sistah" 
That's something that Gabrialla would say, or something along with "shadows" it is my favourite word.
But seriously, that is literally "BlackOps" right there.

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

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
