The Nord by Isriana The Nord by Isriana
As much as I have played dress up while making stock series for my other account *Eirian-stock, I don't think I have actually ever tried to cosplay any specific character. I have played a lot of Skyrim lately (yeah, no surprise there), this time more with Skaila, and suddenly I felt an urge to try how her signature war paint would look on my face. It was fun so I decided to go all the way and shoot a portrait which - hopefully - has some Skyrim atmosphere in it even though I didn't manage to recreate any of game's armors or such. Appropriately, we still had some snow left here in the north, so the background should be fitting enough. :D
So here it is, me as my own Skyrim character, nord girl Skaila Skaran. Here are some other pictures of her for those of you who wish to compare :pointr: [link] [link] [link]

Honestly, I just used few hair pins and that was it. There should have been some braiding involved, but I got lazy, lol.
Anyway, I'm glad you think so! :D

Can I ask you a question?
What Skyrim race (human only) would fit for an Albanian? I may go with Nords, since our origins start from the Illirian people, a tribal/barbarian country west of Macedonia, but compared to all Europe it would end as Imperial for being located in a Southern zone. Little help, pretty please? :meow:

would it sound rasist to say redguard ?
or maybe breton ?
Reply
:iconakeidamos:
Akeidamos Featured By Owner Jan 23, 2013
It wouldn't be racist, we're not black at all. We are white (I think it's called Caucasian Complexion), we have a somewhat-dark complexion sometimes, but nothing more than that. I am also quite pale, compared to other albanians. We also have blond-haired people.
Maybe Redguards could be those albanians with turkish origins (hence the possible dark complexion), but I have my doubts about Bretons: they're taken off of Celtic lore, nothing about Albania or the ancient Illiric people, from what I know :/

Alrighty then :D I think I'm just gonna go Nord or Imperial.
One weird thing though, my dad told me that during WW2, Nazis considered us "Arians", and thus I think I should be rightfully Nord XD (No really, I just looked it up and it says that the New York Times also stated that lol)

I can't decide which faction and race I should choose for Elder Scrolls Online when it comes out.
Daggerfall Covenant has a nice faction armor [link], so I may go Breton in that case.
Though, I feel more like a Nord, but the armor of the Ebonheart Pact is just a hoodie [link]

:iconakeidamos:
Akeidamos Featured By Owner Jan 19, 2013
Yep, there are many, but not all. Half of the pale-like girls are Emo/goth/metal-related kind of girls, the other half of them are just cute girls with a not-too-pale and not-too-tan complexion, kinda normal. The rest are girls with make-up tan :|

Make-up tan?

well, there's no such thing here in Brasil: You get a tanned skin even if you don't want. :XD:

Akeidamos Featured By Owner Jan 22, 2013
Lol? Mediterranean sun is strong enough to darken your skin, but not so strong in Italy at least. So girls use that stuff to look tanned.

:iconmarcelmiranda:
marcelmiranda Featured By Owner Jan 22, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
Not so strong in Italy?

That's odd, I thought Italy was even more near to Africa. :o
Reply
:iconakeidamos:
Akeidamos Featured By Owner Jan 22, 2013
It is, but Africa is closer than Italy to the Equatorial line, so Italy is less affected by sun than Africa...at least Northern and Central Italy: we also got snowy christmas some years (like the past year) here in Rimini, on the north-eastern coast of Italy, which is not normal for a city on the sea :/
