Our first contender on our list of fabulous The Elder Scrolls cosplay is this beautiful Thalmor Justicar. The cosplayer’s natural beauty shines through. The wig and additional ears are perfect, and the costume itself looks superbly made. That’s not to mention the detailed weapon this elf wields. All in all, a great start to our list.

Mjoll the Lioness
Mjoll the Lioness is the first named character on our list. The Elder Scrolls universe works extremely well for cosplay inspired by characters in the game, as well as direct representations of those that are important enough to be named and feature in our adventures. In this case, Mjoll is done justice. Everything comes together extremely well. The locale the cosplayer chose for the photoshoot is equally superb.

The Dark Brotherhood quest line is arguably one of my favorites in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. I imagine the same is probably true for many players. This cosplay, by Xavietta on DeviantArt, very closely details the Dark Brotherhood costume. The bright red stands bold against the black, and her weapons have us shivering in our boots.

M’aiq the Liar
What is a The Elder Scrolls cosplay list without at least one Khajiit, am I right? This Khajiit is a familiar face, but don’t believe a word he says! Unless he tells you has wares, because that then he might actually be telling the truth. This cosplay is of M’aiq the Liar. Talaaya dutifully crafted a mask that shows off M’aiq’s most distinctive features, his long fur mustache and hooded visage.

This next costume on our list is a great example of when cosplay takes inspiration from the source material, then gets creative. Beebichu Cosplay took inspiration from the Dragon Priests in the games and created a female version. The flowing robes and dragonscale armor’s details work surprisingly well together in this epic cosplay vision. Who knew that pink could be effectively used in a The Elder Scrolls cosplay?

We’ve moved into the high ranking cosplays in our The Elder Scrolls list. Armor is always impressive. It takes vision, and it takes determination. Most of all, it takes time to create armor for cosplays. Nefeni Cosplay took a leap of faith and decided to craft one of the most visually impressive armors in The Elder Scrolls universe. Her glass armor is certainly a sight to behold.

Next up is another super impressive set of The Elder Scrolls armor. This one is definitely popular, as it is an intense visual spectacle. Daedric armor is ebony with red detailing, and Leah Stevo dressed to impress. This Daedric armor is killer, and the addition of a sweet roll for a prop shows the cosplayer has a sense of humor as well. We’re definitely fans.

Last, but certainly not least, in our list of top The Elder Scrolls cosplay is Punished Props. We’ve got two for the price of one at the height of this list! These cosplayers created not one, but two sets of armor for their couples costumes. Together, they make one badass set of Draugr Deathlords. I don’t know about you, but I’d be careful taking these two on!
