“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.

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

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.

“The day I died was the day I started to live… Freedom is power. To live a life untamed and unafraid is the gift that I’ve been given, and so my journey begins.”
I must admit I’ve never seen Catwoman (in any of her movies – not into superhero movies, unfortunately, even though I love the character designs). It was a toss-up between Halle Berry & Michelle Pfiefer, I chose the lovely Halle as I wanted to test out the Bosmer crop top armour. I really like it, it’s great to have a variety of shapes in the Tier 1 armour. As most of the characters I make for modelling end up being deleted. In the future I’d love to challenge myself to do Michelle’s Catwoman, and more super hero/villain characters.
My gorgeous Catwoman is a Redguard Nightblade who wears a mix of Light & Medium Armour. In comics & movies her weapon of choice appears to be a whip & her own claws. Though there is a whip skill for Dragonknights, it’s not exactly a weapon just an ability, so perhaps dual wield daggers would be the best option and a bow as a secondary weapon? I suppose either Nightblade or Dragonknight would be suitable.
