You may have norticed my Elder Scrolls Online Armor WIP and Making-of and all the challenges during the process. Finally, the costume is wearable and although there are still some things I would improve when planning the next one, I am very happy how the project turned out.
I guess the most known title of the series may be Skyrim, for which I created another cosplay, but Bethesda also did an MMORPG some years ago with a lot of different styles and armour sets. Most of the designs I used for my project are Bosmer, but the shoulder pauldrons are inspired by the Redguards.
For the base of the armour, I created a corset-like main piece, to which the scales were glued later. Every single one had to be heat-sealed, primed, coloured and sealed with varnish afterwards. By the way, the front closure is hidden by the big plate, as well as the lacing (by my hair).
Most of the following pieces are linked to the main part with various methods: The big parts on the side, the longer front and back pieces and the upper leg plates, to which the knee pieces are attached. In contrast to this, the leg parts are linked to another construction.
The upper arm plates are linked to each other as well, but do provide a lot of movement. The biggest can be attached to the shoulder strap of the main armour. In ordert o be more comfortable, the plate next to my neck is made of Foam and does not involve any Worbla.
To sum it up, the main materials for this cosplay are Foam, Worbla and some fabric for lining and construction. If you want to know more about the project, have a look at the Making-of page.
