Dark Brotherhood Assassin (Elder Scrolls)
Hey guys this was my first attempt at cosplay, nothing too complicated or advanced but it looks effective enough I guess! I'm the guy on the left btw

P.S I don't know if this is the place to get feedback on Cosplays? Is there a section that is more appropriate as i could see a number of sub-forums where people have posted their Cosplays. Thanks for reading

Next time you'll probably want to post something like this in the 'General costume help and critique' forum.
However, if you're looking for feedback:

It's a good costume, and certainly a good one to have started with Unfortunately the outfit alone isn't very recognisable, so there're a few things to make sure of - firstly, study as many reference pictures as you can. The Dark Brotherhood Listeners (they're the ones in the robes, not the Assassins) wear gloves, have shorter, less baggy sleeves, have different belts, and have robes with hoods attached rather than seperate. All of this is just me being picky though. If you ever wear this costume again it might be an idea to have the Dark Brotherhood symbol somewhere - either carry a flag, or have it on your upper arm like the shrouded armour has - as unfortunately you could get mistaken for other people in robes, I imagine.
All in all, from what I can see, the outfit looks well made and effective, but TES cosplays are usually quite difficult to get effective if only becuase they're quite normal-looking.

Yeah i hear you on that, most people tend to see star wars characters and in fact a couple of people asked for me for pics to that regard! I was going specifically for the Lucien Lachance one as it's pretty much just the robe and hood, but you're right most people when they think Dark Brotherhood do see the gloved ones. You make a good point with props do, I didn't see many people in Cosplay who didn't have some kinda prop! Ah well it was a learning experience I intend to spend a lot of time on the details for the next one (Natsu from Fairy Tail)
