Beware the Bite by WildlyWickedArt Beware the Bite by WildlyWickedArt
Another shot of my self made Aela the Huntress cosplay. My first cosplay ever! :D
If you've never played Skyrim.. First of all SHAME ON YOU ;) , and second of all Aela is part of a warrior's guild in Whiterun called the Companions. There is a twist... The Inner Circle of the Companions are all werewolves, including Aela.

This photo was taken at the Renaissance Fair in Texas :heart:

On the making of this cosplay: Yes, I am the model, but also the creator. I followed Aela around on my video game, creeping on her and sketching out the entire outfit, front to back. This is an exact replica except for a few modifications on the neckline and skirt slits (make it a tad more modest), and the chain mail she wears on her thighs. I copied her armor piece by piece and made each piece out of craft foam and upholstery foam. I used 3D paint to get the designs, spray painted them with "hammered steel" and a brown tint and then hand painted them with black and silver acrylic paint for bring more depth. The tacks are made from quilting tacks. Boots are actually my combat boots, I just made leg warmers out of sheep skin and suede. I thrifted the skirt and re-cut the back to get the pattern to match Aela's and used some extra brown suede to make the top. The straps are made from artificial leather and came in those strips. Armwarmers are made from a thrifted sweater that I cut the sleeves from and fitted.

I love your outfit! If you wouldn't mind, did you have to go to any websits/stores to get any of the pieces? A friend and I want to cosplay as some of our favorite characters but living in a town like ours it is hard to find any stores or hear about any 'cons or fairs (our town stopped doing one years before we were born) to help get cosplay stuff done. I always have to improv when I do a cosplay because I don't know where to go to get the stuff.

I made it. I found a thrifted skirt and made it into a dress after much re-cutting. THe armwarmers I made from the sleeves of a man's sweater, also thrifted. Everything else is 100% handmade. Armor and all.
