20 Best The Elder Scrolls Online Character Cosplays

The Elder Scrolls franchise is a perfect inspiration for cosplay, and this list features a close look at the 20 best TES & ESO cosplays we could find online! From beloved races to specific fan-favorite characters, you are certain to find at least a couple of cosplays that you will love!

Creating a cosplay is very complex, and it comes down to how much you can immerse yourself in the details, what tools you have at your disposal, and what dexterity you can work with. It certainly takes a lot of time – even months as a pro cosplayer told us – which varies heavily according to the outfit’s complexity.

To me, it seems like a particularly exciting task to appear in costumes, because in order to represent a game character accurately, you have to master its movements, facial expressions, and traits that make the character unique. This great video by Lightning Cosplay will show you more about the process:

But how does it feel to bring the online world of The Elder Scrolls to life? The characters are mystical creatures with an incredibly spectacular world unfolding before them, and with their armor and weapons reminiscent of old times, they perfectly represent the not-too-bloodless battle scenes we may encounter in games.

In the following galleries, we can see the work of a lot of more talented fans who definitely deserve praise for their persistent and modest work! Let us know your favorites in the comments!
