My Whiterun Guard cosplay from The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Done for my school's Culture Fest where various school clubs and groups do performances and set up booths that exhibit a different culture. I was given permission to do a Nords of Skyrim booth thanks to the fact that the history is very fleshed out. With the help of some friends and family we were able to build this amazing booth and sell various in-game items like the infamous sweet roll (I bought 12). I was even harassed by the Thieves Guild in the form of our school's Anime Club. All in all it was a very fun thing to do and all the money we made went to a charitable cause.
The costume itself was made from various bits and pieces bought here and there, the helmet itself was made from paper mache and I had a spare shield lying around that I painted to look like a Whiterun shield, I even had a nerf sword to play around with.
