Dovahkiin Preview by nihilistique Dovahkiin Preview by nihilistique
Here's a couple preview pictures of my Dovahkiin cosplay I wore to ALA 2012!

I've been wanting to cosplay from an Elder Scrolls game for a long time because I've been a huge fan forever. I was struggling with finding something iconic, though, but with the recent Skyrim madness making a Dovahkiin costume seemed perfect. I'm a sucker for Nordic themes already (I'm Norwegian myself) so I jumped at the opportunity.

Its the Iron Helmet, Banded Iron Armor, Ancient Nord War Axe and Iron shield.

This is still in the process of being finished for a photoshoot I have planned in late February. I wore what I had done to ALA even though its not the whole costume, I'm missing the thigh armor, and bunch of belts and some other details.

Everything was made by me with the exception of the axe and shield, those were made by my very talented friend Dante.

That armor is spectacular, how did you make it? I am working on a Dovahkiin cosplay myself very soon and my character wears that chest piece.

Although technically the female iron helmet has more curled horns.

Yeah, it does. I made the helmet look a little more like what the helmet looks like on the promo dragonborn in the trailers, rather than what it actually looks like in game. I just liked that version better. :P

Dovahkiin = Dragonborn in dragon language. Dw, you got it right! xD There's no actual "name" for this character, the player character is just called the Dragonborn/Dovahkiin.

Thanks so much!! You gotta play Morrowind, just mod it as much as possible. It's a little frustrating after being spoiled by Skyrim and Oblivion because the gameplay noticeably feels dated, but the story is worth it. :D

you are very welcome! :) and you would be surprised at what i found out recently about morrowind... i am getting it! yup i have a friend that has all the addons too that is looking to unload them and he offered me them!

i hope i can still play them with windows 7

but you are very welcome! and i wanted to tell you, from my wife and me, you are beautiful. i showed her the outfit and she loved it (she has seen commercials and watched me play skyrim for a while now and recognizes the outfit :) )

You can definitely play it on Windows 7! I just recently played it and I have Win7 too. Worked perfectly. :D

Thanks so much for your kind words, and thank your wife for me too! I'm so glad you both like it.

coolness! i cant wait to give it a try! :)

and you are very welcome. i will definitely tell her for you when she gets back from work, but i can tell you with all honesty, she, just like me, believes it is a privilege to admire beauty and imagination. not everyone can say they honestly can, and to us, you happen to fall under that category, so trust me, it is our honor :hug:
