Aela the Huntress cosplay by April Gloria by aprilgloriacosplay Aela the Huntress cosplay by April Gloria by aprilgloriacosplay
Photo taken in the Smoky Mountains near Gatlinburg, Tennessee.
The entire costume, except for my moccasins, is handmade/hand sewn by me! Bodice/skirt/legwraps are sueded leather from an $8 coat from Goodwill which was dyed dark. The gloves were made from fabric from old curtains. I made the armor using Pepakura files printed on cardstock, resined, fiberglassed, bondoed and painted. The armbands are cardboard rings. I used Snazaroo face/body paint for the war paint. The wig was from eBay, from China.

The cosplay is really good, but I think with the face paint you need to look a little more gritty like a bit of dirt here and there. to give it more of that wilderness huntress feel.

1. This character is so under appreciated and it is awesome that you chose her. You did such an amazing job.
2. This shot is fantastic. Who ever took the photo did a fantastic job of capturing the magic of your character.
3. Not to be impolite or too brash... but you have got to be the most beautiful woman I have ever seen in my entire life. If I was questing out in the wilderness and ran into you (Aela) I'd be dragon food or werewolf slayer bait before letting you out of my sight :p
One of the most original Skyrim outfits I have seen. Thanks for sharing.
P.S Tandy sells a moccasin pattern called Plainsman Boot Pattern Pak. The pattern is fairly easy to follow and can be modified quickly as well to suit various medieval/fantasy/cosplay needs. It also doesn't look clunky or cheesy. With the right leather, you could make some bad ass boots to go with this outfit. I hope that helps :)
