Nightingale Armor Cosplay by Beebichu Nightingale Armor Cosplay by Beebichu
Hi there! Thanks for viewing my image.
I am the maker of and model of the costume, Nightingale Armor from the video game Elderscrolls V: Skyrim. These lovely photos were taken by the talented Andrew Snucins Photography, www.andrewsnucins.com.
The Nightingales are the original concept of Bethesda.

I play Skyrim and as I was wondering what costume to make I decided to just go for my favorite one! My character is always in this armor.

About the costume: I began planning and collecting materials in September 2012. Most of it is sewn out of pleather and vinyl which I then treated with black paint, silver spray paint, hot glue, model magic, and way more black paint. I made the pattern by cutting out pieces of paper and holding them up my body to see if they would be the right size and shape. Then I used those paper pieces to cut out my fabric. Very time consuming as I don't have a dress form. One day I'll get one. I completed the costume 4 months later in December.

There's a humble write up on my blog of how I made this costume here: beebichu.blogspot.ca/

Loved " Nightingale Armor " on Skyrim. Was the armor of my pick. Would love to have this. Warm or not, be Epic to still have.

May I suggest instead of a dress form to just make a Duct tape dummy of yourself? [link]

We use them in the furry community to make fursuits but I've also applied them to my armor commissions

I just made one. How do you fill in the bottom so that the stuffing doesn't come out?
