Nightingale - The Elder Scrolls - Skyrim


London MCM Expo May 2013

Showcased 31st August 2014 What is this?


Nightingale armour from the game The Elder Scrolls- Skyrim. I made this costume out of craft foam, coated in Plastidip rubberised spray and backed with leatherette. Then painted using Angelus Shoe paints.

The Bow is made with a LARP bow core then EVA foam cut and carved to shape. Coated in Plastidip and painted with Angelus paints, plus irridescent blue nail polish for the 'enchanted' effect.

Fantastic costume! I like the effect of the plastidip surfacing, not heard of that one before.

Plastidip spray is the best discovery i've ever made. As it's a rubber it is totally flexible and can be painted over.Plus it's waterproof. Over foam, especially the spray gives a flat texture like smooth leather. Needs about 4 fine coats and 1 can does that. The dip i used on the bow ( as id run out of spray) and you need to use fast brushstrokes to stop them showing, but it creates a slightly glossier surface. It's pricey and smelly but damn is it good.
