Praying to Nocturnal by Beebichu Praying to Nocturnal by Beebichu
Cosplay! I am on a Nightingale cosplay kick right now, but hey, if you spend 4-5 months working on a costume you need to get your times worth of fun from it! There is still so much I could do with this costume we shall have fun for for years to come.

This weekend my photographer, Andrew Snucins, and I hiked into the woods and took photos of me modeling my costume. I spent the last week upgrading it with a new mask, more folds to the skirting, a scabbard for my sword, and touching it up from some damage that happen at the last shoot. 

This costume is originally designed by Bethesda Softworks for their videogame Elderscrolls V: Skyrim. Called Nightingale Armor, it is a set your character receives in the game for completing a group of Thieves Guild quests. The bow and sword you see in my pictures below are also made by me and I tried to make them look as close to the game versions as possible.

There is a word for something like this. Many words in fact, so I'll make a list: Epic, Legendary, Awesome, Perfect, Beautiful, Superb, Grand, Glorious... need I go on?

Nope no fur this time. I am going to post more furry snowy cosplay pics soon though, they are as yet unseen by the deviant community. It is faux fur, I am against wearing real fur.

Sorry I do not. Its a hobby and a passion. And I barely know how to make a costume fit me, making one for someone else would take a loooooong time. But thanks for asking!

No problem. I'm trying to make a mask for a costume of my own, but i don't know what to make it out of. Any ideas? It has to look like bone, as it's going to be a masquerade mask like a skull that has been cut.

Well the exoensive way = Worblas Finest! The cheap way = Crayola's Model Magic. Both of these let you sculpt exactly what you are trying to make and they air dry.

I don't know how you made that costume but that's amazing. I loved the Nightingale armor in the game but you've really brought it to life.
