Methinks This ‘Skyrim’ Khajiit M’aiq The Liar Cosplay Is Remarkable


M’aiq the Liar, witty  and holder of much knowledge, comes to life in this amazing cosplay created by redditor talaaya. There was quite a bit of work involved, but talaaya managed to pull it off with some clever costuming skills:

“I covered the mask with clear packing tape and drew lines where I wanted the seams of the fur to be, as well as making notes with arrows for the direction of the fur. I then took the tape off, cut it apart, and used it as a pattern to cut out the fur. I used hot glue to attach the pieces to the mask and then I carefully trimmed the length of the fur with scissors. Some parts were left longer than others. I painted it with watered down acrylics. I didn’t bother combing it out very well so it’s pretty hard and crusty but that sort of works to my advantage; it keeps the fur neater and slimmer.

For the tail, I covered the foam tail with saran wrap and then duct tape, then drew a line down the center on both sides to make it into two pieces. I cut a single dart at the round end of the tail so I could get the fur to conform to the round surface better. Then the same process as the mask fur after that.”

Oh yeah, there’s a tail. This character is complete from head to toe. Check out all the photos after the break.
