How To Make Skyrim Armor

What you’ll need:

• Eva foam floor mats or L200 I made the armor here with the mats but they both work great.

• Thin craft foam for detail work.

• An x acto knife and tons of blades or a jigsaw or band saw work too.

• A straight edge ruler confirm its metal.

• Hot glue and a hot glue gun or Barge All Purpose Cement again both work great.Just remember one can burn you and therefore the other has toxic fumes so pick your con haha.

• Fake or real leather around 3 yards.

• Fake or real fur about 2 yards.

• Plasti-dip grey so you’ll seal the froth .

• Silver paint .

• acrylic of various colors.

• The strength to become Dovahkiin

Step 1: Collect Your Reference Material


First you’re going to require to urge yourself some fancy shots of the armor you would like to create so you recognize what you are doing. you’ll always stir up the sport and wear your best set and explode that. you’ll print out some photos of the set you would like off of google, hell why not do both.

Step 2: The Under Armor

To start off I needed some under armor, so I went out and purchased myself a couple of yards of faux leather to form it out of. to urge the dimensions and shape that i might need I hack an old shirt and used it as my pattern. After tracing out the shirt onto the rear of the leather I cut it out then sewed it together. This was my first time ever learning a needle and thread haha. Once I had finished sewing the side up I noticed that within the game the front had some sewing in it also . To be as accurate as possible I then made the seems that I saw in game. I acknowledged after test fitting this that these new lines actually made the under armor fit better. Who knew that game developers actual know what there doing haha. Once that was all done I then painted the entire thing with a brown and red wash to offer it that weathered look “not pictured here” I also added some fur round the arms.

Step 3: The Bracers

Time to start out on the Bracers! lets star off by ablation the essential shape of them then cutting into the froth to offer them depth. i do not recommend picking it out together with your fingers like I did haha. I then took some fun foam and cut the scroll work into it then glued it into place. I then did it everywhere again for the opposite one I also did an equivalent for the hand armor. Once the armors where done I wanted to possess ridged gauntlets but within the game there leather, So I came up with this concept to form a tube of EVA foam then cover it with the fake leather I had. Once the Bracers where completed it had been time for painting. I then coated them in plasti dip before the paint in order that it fills altogether the tiny holes of the froth in any case that it is time to urge all of them furred up and leathered out.

Step 4: Body Armor BABY!

Time for a few heavy armor I started by free handing the form I wanted onto some EVA. you’ll always draw something abreast of the pc then print it out if your easier with it that way. After I had something I liked I then cut out one side of it flipped it over then traced it out on the opposite side to urge a full piece. I did that 5 more times at varying sizes to realize the design of heavy layered armor. once the front was done I traced it again but this point I made a couple of small changes to form it appear as if the rear of he armor. Once the rear was done I started the processes of ablation areas for the detail this point though I just cut out the entire thing. I then flipped and traced that part onto the opposite side to urge a good look. Once they where both cut out I flipped them over and glued them into place with the textured side facing up to offer it a busier more detailed look. I do need to say doing it this manner is far faster and far easier on the fingers.

Step 5: The Iron Helm of AWESOME!

The helmet was a touch weird I started off buy ablation alittle part that fit rock bottom of my nose I then cut a bit that fit round the back of my head and glued them together. Once the 2 halfs had become one I then cut two small parts that might go above my eyes then a extended one two continue top of my head “I didn’t cut it long enough though, but that’s a simple fix”. All I did to form up for the shortage of length was cut another piece that was an equivalent size and just glued it to the already existing part. Once I had finished that part I moved onto adding the layered back half and therefore the top. All I did for this was cut a couple of scaps up to suit the form of the opening that was within the helm and for the rear I drew up a shape I liked then cut it out and glued it into place. it had been a touch short on the edges so I just added an additional bit to urge it to the dimensions I wanted. I didn’t really get many photos of this part but here is what I did. For the parts that hold the horns I took an outsized drilling bit that’s used for cutting holes for pipe and just about just popped two holes into the edges I then took some foam and rolled it into one long tube and stuck it through both holes I then glued it into place then cut the access out from the within in any case that I took fun foam and cut it into little strips and proceeded to attach them to each single edge to offer this bad boy some depth. I also took some thumb tacks and used them as fake rivet/bolts. Before painting I figured this is able to not be a fresh helmet so I attacked it with some swords and battle axes AKA my dremel tool. I got the horns from a fancy dress viking helmet. i do know its cheating but its the simplest I could do for immediately i made a decision to geek out a touch on the rear and wrote my name in dragon script. I then painted it with a dark grey then rust colors to offer it that found during a cave look. I also wanted to feature something to the within to offer it a touch better of a glance , so I took a number of the additional leather I had and attached it to the within . There you’ve got it your very own iron helmet.

Step 6: Extra Little Bits.

Here are some of the other things that I made for the armor far left is the little armor tops that go onto the top of the boots next is the shin armor and then the two big ones are the thigh armor that go on the sides. I didn’t really get that many shots of the shoulder armor I kinda just threw them together last minute. They really are not that hard to make they are pretty much just a bent triangle.
