In the far and distant future, we can hope that an Elder Scrolls game actually looks this good. Less like a fantasy world in a snowglobe, more like a place you'd actually enjoy a morning spent hanging out in the nice warm sun. Perhaps not the next generation of hardware. Maybe the one after.

These amazing cosplay shots were done in honour of master props builder Harrison Krix's Skyrim helmet that he made recently.

The rest of the costume, which is equally impressive, was put together by costume builder and cosplayer Manzi, while the nice pics were taken by her boyfriend.
