Skyrim’s Amazing Fans: Cosplay, Mods, Comics & Screens
It’s a scientific fact that Skyrim has solidified the Elder Scrolls fanbase into something resembling Trekkies. By that we mean a deeply connected subculture that is knowledgeable, unashamedly obsessed, and creative as hell. Those fans not only make cool art and insane mods, they have also created perhaps the most robust cosplay community of any game.
So much Skyrim cosplay exists that it would be impossible to authoritatively list the very best of it, but we can at least draw attention to some of our favorites. What follows is proof that incredible works of wearable art can be made on tiny and huge budgets.
