Armor is the Banded Iron Armor and Iron Helmet from Skyrim.
Yay I finally finished everything! I redid and added a bunch of stuff since I last wore it at ALA ‘12.
Unfortunately we got to the shoot location late and didn’t get all the shots we wanted, so we’re going to go back again for another shoot. We did get a few keepers though, so expect more.
I’m really happy to finally get to show my Elder Scrolls love through a costume.
As the game has been such a massive hit, I’m a little surprised it’s taken me this long to finally spot a quality bit of Skyrim cosplay. Naturally, it’s a cute girl (well, as cute as anyone can be with an iron mask on), and I respect her for not wearing fur-chain mail bikini armor.
It is hard to cosplay this game however, as really the only signature thing about any of the world’s 5000 characters is the Dragonborn horn helmet from all the promotional materials. I suppose you could spend months crafting full dwarven, dragon or daedric armor sets, but I can’t really think of any NPC you could dress up as without it just seeming like you were cosplaying some random medieval character or barbarian.
