Is there anything more awesome than a beautifully crafted suit of cosplay armor? The sheer amount of work and craftsmanship that went into these pieces is just staggering. We’ve gathered 15 of the most impressive, awe-inspiring suits of armor from around the world to share with you.
Akageo from Monster Hunter
Nightingale Armor from Skyrim
Next up we’ve got this killer (no pun intended) suite of Nightingale armor from Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. The setting in the photo is just perfect too. Nightingale cosplay by Beebichu. Photo by Andrew Snucins.
This one’s a little different—instead of being from a particular game, this armor is totally unique and custom! It’s designed by the awesome team at Feral Workshop. Be sure to check out their other armor pieces and their Etsy store. They’ve got some incredible stuff.
Alexstrasza the Dragonqueen from World of Warcraft
Inquisitor Armor from Dragon Age: Inquisition
On a slightly more intimidating note, here’s a badass Inquisitor cosplay by SKSProps. Great weathering and damage on the armor!
Dark Steel Armor from Dragon’s Prophet
Jinouga Armor from Monster Hunter
This one blew me away when I saw it—can you imagine walking around in this thing?! Kudos to DragonicHeaven for the amazing Jinouga costume and the ability to breathe in it 🙂 Photo by Int. Photography.
Dwemer Armor from Skyrim
Malthael Armor from Diablo 3
Prideful Gladiator from World of Warcraft
Barioth G Rank from Monster Hunter
As further proof that DragonicHeaven isn’t bothered by face-covering helmets, here’s his awesome Barioth G Rank armor from Monster Hunter. Think he has somebody that leads him around the conventions, or what?
Daedric Armor from Skyrim
Our final entry from Skyrim (at least for this round) is this unbelievable Daedric armor from Skyrim, courtesy of Zerios88. Seriously, look at the level of detail on this thing. Incredible. Photo by Gianluca Bini, who apparently gets to work with a lot of amazing cosplayers. Lucky guy.
Masquerade Armor from Guild Wars 2
Let’s get back to female cosplayers before we finish up, with this stunning Masquerade armor by Elliria. I can’t imagine the amount of work that went into designing and putting it together… Great accompanying photo by Mike Rollerson.
Eidolon Odin from Final Fantasy XIII
We may have saved the best for last here… check out this suit of Eidolon Odin armor from Final Fantasy XIII. Ho. Ly. Crap. The entire thing is just an incredible piece of art, courtesy of AmenoKitarou. Photo by Jason Panda Liu.
