The Serpent Cultist

Posted on Updated on

This gorgeous character was originally intended for a completely different project, which didn’t quite work out. Not wanting to delete her, as she’s far too perfect, I thought I’d play around with costumes and this is what I came up with. Alternatively, you could achieve this look with the Argonian Homespun Robe, as alot of the 3-pack crown store costume packs are based off in game armour.

The Celestial Mage

Posted on Updated on

The Mage Constellation which affects Magicka and shown as a Wizard holding a staff. I truly enjoy creating celestial-like outfits- using dyes like Lamae & Moonstone White while taking screenshots up at the stars. I got the Brilliance Brocade Robes from the Crown Crates and wasn’t sure what to do with it, so ust began playing around with it at the dye station.

The Sea Elf Citizen

“The Maormer are known to possess blank, white eyes & skin that is entirely colorless, as if their flesh were made of some white limpid jelly”

-The Wolf Queen v4

Sea Elves, or Maormer, are sea serpent worshipping Elves from Pyandonnea you might have already seen around the Aldmeri Dominion. Sadly, Sea Elves are not currently a playable race, so I’ve chosen a very pale Dunmer with Oracle Eyes to pose as one.

The Alchemist of Aurdion

“Of all the lands in the Summerset Isles,
Auridon, she outshines them all.
With her marble halls and towering spires,
Her beauty surpass’d them all.”

— Ode to Auridon

I had a lot of fun taking screenshots in Vulkhel Guard. Such a beautiful place. The gardens outside of Temple of Auri-El are exceptionally beautiful. The Altmer are known to be obsessive over their gardens, ripping out entire trees if flowers don’t have the desired number of petals.

I imagined this armour for a wealthy alchemist who might get into a little bit of ‘trouble’ while adventuring for the rarest ingredients. I also wanted to show off those amazing Epaulets I haven’t been able to find what Motif they belong to, my addon labels it as ‘unknown’.

I’ve recently discovered the Daedric homespun leggings are actually a long skirt! This is fantastic for anyone who loves clothing their character in robes & long dresses.

The Cinderella

“Nonsense, child. If you’d lost all your faith, I couldn’t be here. And here I am.”

-Fairy Godmother

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.

The Nocturnal

“The Daedric Princess Nocturnal stepped out of the pit of uncolor.

She stood in the center of the circle, the tree of pallid crows her throne, aloof, as the witches continued their chanting…

…she smiled at their song. It spoke of her mystery, of veiled beauty, of eternal shadows and a divine future when the sun burns no more.”

– Chapter Two, Purloined Shadows

Nocturnal is the Daedric Princess of the Night & Darkness. She has a large list of titles, including Night Mistress, Mistress of Shadows, the Unfathomable, Empress of Murk, Daughter of Twilight, Mistress of Mystery, Saint of Suspicion & more. She is often accompanied by talking Ravens & is the creator of the Daedric Artifact- the Skeleton Key, which has the power to unlock any lock.

The Glenmoril Witches Robe is perfect for the Daedric Princess of Night, dyed Noxophilic Black, as it’s hard to find tops that don’t have skin-tight sleeves. The feathered neck reminds one of the Ravens that would accompany Nocturnal & plunging necklace & hood also resemble her clothing in Skyrim. I decided to make her a Vampire, to compliment her association with the Night and to give her the most pale skin.

While the Aurbic Eye is too vibrant and unsymettrical for my own liking, it gives Vampire skin a darker lip colour & the eye makeup is almost invisible under a hood. I prefer her with the Oracle Eyes than the Vampiric Red, which in my opinion, can be a little difficult to look at in the later stages of Vampirism.

The Huntress of Hircine

Posted on Updated on

“The Daedric Prince Hircine is also known as the Huntsman of the Princes, and the Father of Manbeasts. He can call upon the Wild Hunt to punish those who defy him.”

Hircine – The Antlered Daedric Prince of the Hunt who is worshipped by the Witches of Glenmoril, creator of Lycanthropy and main antagonist in Morrowind: Bloodmoon expansion. In Oblivion, Hircine will ask the hero to kill a Unicorn to obtain one of the best pieces of armour in the game.

I’ve never actually killed the unicorn, instead I’d reroll Satin-Blonde Bosmers and sneak my way past the minotaurs to have the Unicorn as a mount. Successfully acquiring it was basically end game for me. I truly hope ESO brings in Unicorns, as riding a unicorn cannot be any stranger than riding a Zombie or Ice Horse.

While Hircine’s statues picture him with a spear, we don’t (yet) have the option to use that as a weapon, however the Altmer Staff & Barbaric 2h Sword have a spear-like look.

Hircine’s appearance seems inspired by the Ancient Celtic Deity Cernunnos & Herne the Hunter from English Folklore.

While I’ve achieved this look using the Tribal Shamans pack from the Crown Store, a similar crafted outfit is easily created using the Bosmer Homespun Robe (Clothing craft level 1).
