How To Make Skyrim Armor

What¬†you’ll¬†need:

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

‚ÄĘ Thin craft foam for detail work.

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

‚ÄĘ A straight edge ruler confirm its metal.

‚ÄĘ 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.

‚ÄĘ Fake or real leather around 3 yards.

‚ÄĘ Fake or real fur about 2 yards.

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

‚ÄĘ Silver paint .

‚ÄĘ acrylic of various colors.

‚ÄĘ 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.
