“..drink the blood of Coldharbour.”

I’ve been reading about Coldharbour lately since completing the Mages Guild and discovering the realm of Molag Bal. One thing that has me intrigued is the Azure Plasm pools found all over the landscape. During the tutorial I thought it was poison, and avoided the ice blue ‘water’. After reading many lore books I discovered the Blue was more than just aesthetically pleasing rivers and streams, but the ‘lifeblood’ of the local Daedra – upon their death, the Azure Plasm seeps into the corpse, reforming & reanimating it.

I’ve also learnt about the Mind Shriven, the bright blue veined humans & creatures exposed to a poison called Coldharbour Blood. Is Azure Plasm the same as Coldharbour Blood? Can’t find anything confirming this, however I’d like to think it is.

Mind Shriven is not to be confused with Soul Shriven, which gives the recipient colourless almost ‘Zombie-like’ decayed skin. I must say I am enjoying Coldharbour, It’s a nice change from the green leaves of Grahtwood, though if I stay there too long I start to feel.. overwhelmed by the blue.

I must admit, I feel somewhat guilty creating Disney costumes for ESO. I enjoy creating & photographing them, but the lore in Elder Scrolls is so wonderful with a great variety of characters, I feel I should be focusing on that instead.

This is my lovely Cinderella, complete with a silvery blue dress & glass slippers. Although in the movie her dress was white, the toys & images always picture her with a beautiful blue ballgown. Either way, she’s a darling. I adore Cinderella, she’s just so lovely.

I have created my Zeus as a Destruction Staff Sorcerer, so that he may use the Storm Calling skill line as well as the Lightening Staff. His Robe is dyed Moonstone White, which is a matte white, it almost ‘cancels out’ the pattern on the robe so that it looks plain and not as glossy.

Starting out in Craglorn was one of the most exciting & beautiful ESO moments for me so far! Celestials are the constellations, in previous Elder Scrolls games you could choose your own Birthsign, though we don’t have anything like that in ESO that isn’t temporary.

I’ve always loved the Frost Mare, and since being lucky enough to win him from the Crown Crate, I’ve never really known how to match him with my characters. With this dress dyed Lamae White (Because every costume is better in Lamae White) he looks like he’s from the heavens and not from the freezer.

So this is my first outfit & my inspiration for creating this site. At first glance the olive coloured Off-the-Shoulder Evening Dress doesn’t seem like much, but is gorgeous when dyed and makes a great fantasy dress. Unfortunately you cannot remove the necklace, but other than that it’s a great dress if you’re an ESO+ subscriber and can dye costumes.

Though you can’t really see from here, she’s wearing the Face Marking with blue eye shadow & rosy lips. I never would’ve thought to use it, as close up in character creation it doesn’t appeal to me, however in game I think it turned out quite lovely. Will be using this more often.
