SKYRIM: Iraza by VioletteTheViolent SKYRIM: Iraza by VioletteTheViolent
Really interesting knifework, I must admit. Especially as there is no target. Iraza goes high-end-posing. *lol* Yet, I still like the pose.

I want your costume!

You should watch out, fellow sister~

But seriously, would you be willing to make that costume in exchange for money?

Do I have to remind you of the 4th tenet, dear fellow sister? 'Never steal the possessions of a Dark Brother or Dark Sister. To do so is to invoke the Wrath of Sithis.'~

Well, first of all, thank you so much for your comment! I feel so very honoured, especially by your question for the costume. Yet, it's not so much a thing of will, but I don't think I could do it for you. Simply because I was nearly unable to manage making it for myself. xD
I am not much of a great sewer - I normally only sew Cosplays that don't have to fit skin-thight -, and as I was afraid of messing up with the skin-tight fissures, I asked a dressmaker to sew the finished red leather parts on the dress for me. He refused, as he said I had to stay with him the whole day for pegging the dress anew after every finished piece. And it would have been 'as expensive as a wedding dress'. Er, well, thanks, but... No thanks. :D
So I ended up working on it with a friend of mine who's a great sewer and basically did the same as the dressmaker. It was four hours of dressing, undressing, pegging and sewing for the both of us, and that after the red leatherparts had actually been finished and adjusted already before I even met her for sewing. XD I don't think I could produce anything almost fitting for you over distance. :/

Ah, but we no longer follow those rules, remember? They were abandoned long ago~ :iconevilsmileplz:

Your welcome! You should feel honored, its spot on accurate, and looks amazing. That sounds like a lot of long hours of hard work. O.o
But I can understand how hard it would be to sew a outfit thats skin-tight. Dont wanna make it Too tight and risk ruining the whole thing, that would be horrible.
Its always funny when you go to a professional and you give them a request and it costs a lot, but then you realize you have talented friends who can do it for you at no cost. Thats really convenient. You mustve been really sick of having to get dressed over and over again, but then again, its for the best. The best cosplays are the ones that have been worked on through blood and tears. Or was it bloody tears?
Either way, the outcome is amazing. And I understand how hard now it would be for you to make another.

Astrid abandoned the rules. And payed for it. I don't want to follow into her footsteps, do you?

It's not so much that it's only hard... I really and truely believe that it would not fit when you finally received it. XD And then noone would benefit from it. :(

You may be right, sister.

Very true. For cosplays like that its best to have them done in-person. But I am looking to find/buy/make a Skyrim DB cosplay for when I go to a con with my friends. If you happen to know/find out anywhere/one that sells/makes them, I would be grateful forever if you could notify me. :nod:

What about the Dark Brotherhood Shrouded Robe? It's not skin-tight, that makes it much easier to do it yourself. ;)
ChippewaOkami Featured By Owner Nov 27, 2012  Student Digital Artist
Thats true. I do like the Robe, but I dont have any characters that would wear a robe in Skyrim. Maybe I could make another character whose a mage that wears that. Mages and robes are like, an item for me~

Perhaps I will try sometime to make it, if/when I get materials. I never thought of doing the robe. Thanks for the idea :D
VioletteTheViolent Featured By Owner Nov 28, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
I've had the same problem. That's basically why I went through making this - the other one doesn't fit Iraza at all. She only wears it in the Sanctuary, if even, as she normally denies being a Dark Brotherhood member in public.
However, we later did the Shrouded Robes, too (you can find it in my gallery, might have seen it, already), and it was so much less work and yet much more comfortable and easy to wear, lol.

But thank you. XD
