The Jaguar Jungle

Posted on Updated on

khajiit3Playing around with different styles of armour and came up with this piece. I’m really loving Khajiit and all the gorgeous fur patterns. This lovely Jaguar is wearing a mix of Argonian, Barbaric & Redguard armour. I specifically love the Barbaric Top, a crop top style with a tooth necklace. Reminds me of a Saber Tooth. I’d love to use it again.khajiit1

The Russian Wedding

Posted on Updated on

My mother is Russian, and like everyone whose parents, grandparents and beyond who have moved countries, I have a deep love and longing for a culture I belonged to but was never apart of.

The Kokoshnik is a large, beaded tiara that can come in many shapes, sizes and colours. I’ve decided to dye mine Gold, this dress picks up colour very strangely and was challenging to dye.

This toon is one of the first I ever created, so she has strange proportions, facial and body, which is why I’m now so careful in character creation. I wanted to create a new model but I’ve run out of room & deletes. The Wedding dress has puffy sleeves and can look strange on characters with a large torso. I’ve found that the Duchess personality can help this.

As I was shooting this scene, a member of the Asssasins Guild was kind enough to keep ‘removing’ all the respawning priests for me so I could take these photos. Thank you, to the Assassin in blue, I didn’t catch your name.

The Sea Elf Navy Captain

“The fleet that now threatens Auridon, we have learned, calls itself the Sea Viper… The opportunistic Maormer now seek their own victories in the war between the alliances.”

-Fang of the Sea Vipers by Telenger the Artificer

Maormer ships are said to be insectoid with membranous sails. I hope for a Pyandonea expansion some day, as it sounds far more alien than Vvardenfall.

I sometimes wonder if that’s why we where given the oracle eyes cosmetic, as if those blank eyes where winking at us to create some beautiful Maormer characters.

The Pride King’s Battle Regalia

“…tradition holds that only one Mane can be alive at any one time; indeed… there is only one Mane, who is simply reborn in different bodies.”

-Pocket Guide to the Empire, 1st Edition/The Elsweyr Confederacy

‘This one’ has been brainstorming ideas for her Khajiit costume ideas. Of course, I had to do a regal lion. His armour is from the Imperial Battlemage pack, complete with red diamonds. I’ve always avoided the Beast races of Argonians & Khajiit, thinking I’d never make a nice enough looking character. I’ve found the Hero face shape works the best for my felines. These photograhs are taken at Khenarthi’s Roost.

Traditionally, the Mane should be covered in the hair of all the tribe as if he where some kind of giant fuzz-ball kitten. Currently impossible to replicate such a look.

The Serpent Cultist

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.

Auridon, she outshines them all.
With her marble halls and towering spires,
Her beauty surpass’d them all.”

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.
