An incredible Skyrim cosplay has brought the elusive faction of the Thieves Guild to life with this detailed take on Nightingale Armor.

If there’s one thing that Skyrim can boast, it’s the game’s impressive lore which runs deep into a character’s backstory. 

The Dragonborn can choose to pledge their allegiance to one of several factions while playing through the extensive campaign. One of which, are the Nightingales.  

The Nightingales are a secret inner circle of the Thieves Guild whose sole objectives are to protect Nocturnal’s shrines.

As the Dragonborn, you can earn the trust of the Thieves Guild and complete a series of tasks to gain the armor blessed by Nocturnal.

The Trinity Restored quest line is onerous to say the least. Players are expected to show their worth by completing a series of tasks to prove their worth. Arguably the most aesthetically pleasing armor set in the game, the Nightingale Armor set offers a warranted grind. 

By way of tribute to the secret faction, Reddit user, ‘Drakmire’, posted their authentic take on the Nightingale Armor. As you’d expect, fans have lapped up the cosplayer’s efforts — receiving almost 28k upvotes in 48 hours.

Drakmire goes on to detail the crafting process and months of effort that it took to create the costume, stating: “It was hours per day, every day, for maybe 4 months for what’s actually pictured.”

The Reddit user’s efforts haven’t gone unnoticed, with the official Elder Scrolls Twitter account recognizing their endeavors by posting an image of the armor.

Made out of real leather, no expenses were spared when creating the Skyrim cosplay ensemble. Perhaps the one-of-a-kind take on Nightingale Armor will be swaggered around an upcoming convention? 

After Elder Scrolls VI was teased earlier this year, one can only assume there will be plenty of opportunities to boast the impressive rendition.

Loba is one of the sassiest characters in Apex Legends, and cosplayers love stepping into her knee-high boots, but one has really stunned her fans with a masterful piece.

Apex Legends players are drawn to their favorite legends for different reasons. Some like them for their aesthetic and personality, others like them for their skills and ultimates. However, it’s hard to name one more universally loved than Loba.

Loba has it all, from a unique look and an interesting backstory to a larger-than-life personality. She’s also incredibly useful on the battlefield. The fact she can teleport around makes her an absolute menace in gunfights.

However, her true value lies in being able to spot high-quality loot and teleport it to her squad. In that sense, she’s the ultimate team player, and it’s the reason why she is often in demand.

Loba has one of the biggest personalities in Apex Legends.

Loba is a popular choice among Apex Legends cosplayers too. They love stepping into the boots of their favorite gunslinging bandit and embodying her attitude and elegance. Like most cosplays, they’re all incredible in their own way.

Sarenji, a popular German cosplayer with thousands of followers on Instagram, recently stole the hearts of her fans with a stunning Loba cosplay.

“I’ll take your life and your loot. I’m exceptionally good at both!” she said, in reference to a Loba quote.

The first set of photos showcases her long braided pigtails with a red-tinge, as well as the make-up, long nails, earrings, gold necklace, and the white and grey chest piece with gold seams. 

The highlight, however, has to be Loba’s trademark silver staff with a wolf’s head on top. Apex Legends players well-versed in the lore will know that it was a gift she received from her father.

In the second set of photos, Sarenji gives her fans a better look at the piece from further back. It provides a more complete picture of the outfit and offers a glimpse at her leggings too.

“A gun is like a beautiful woman. Hold her tight or someone else will,“ she said, quoting Loba once again.

Sarenji didn’t hesitate to give credit where credit was due. She thanked ezcosplay for create the outfit and senpai3d_for creating the staff.

Still, it doesn’t change the fact she wore it well and played an equally important part in bringing Loba to life.
