Week 6: Part 2 – Making Skyrim’s Dovahkiin costume

For the remainder of this week, I set about creating my comic-con cosplay outfit: Dovahkiin from the game ‘The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim’. This proved to be a much more difficult task than I had originally planned, and required a lot of time, blood, sweat, and tears (not in that order). First, I started by looking at reference images, and sketching out all the different components of the suit – helmet, chestpiece, gauntlets, boots, and beltpiece. The helmet was made using cardboard and craft foam, the horns, shoulderpiece, belt buckle, and chestplate were made using foam, and the rest of the costume using cut up parts of a fur coat and a leather jacket purchased in a charity shop. Below you can see the final result.

PS, MCM was amazing, and so worth all the hours spent making the costume 🙂
