Skyrim: Nightingale cosplay by Soylent

This Nightingale costume by Soylent is so on-point you’ll be wondering if it’s fact or fiction.

“Our trinity serves the Lady Nocturnal, the Empress of Murk and the Daughter of Twilight. We believe her to be our patron, if not the patron of all thieves worldwide. We serve her without prayer, without charity and without celebration.”

Do these pictures of cosplayer Soylent actually exist? She looks so much like the mysterious, rumored-to-exist, inner circle of thieves, the Nightingales from Skyrim lore that we’re not sure what to believe. All we know is she did a damn fine job with the costume.

"Nocturnal guide you." Who doesn't love a little bit of thievery on their Sunday? Well, I mean, the person who gets stolen from, I suppose, but they don't really NEED those prized jewels, do they? The nightingales will make much better use of them, I'm sure 💎💎 💎 Spent today with the wonderful @timothysouter who took this photo for me at @paxaus last year. We have many ideas in our brains so hopefully new content coming at you soon. . 💎 💎 💎 #cosplay #costume #cosplaygirl #cosplayphotography #pax #paxaus2016 #paxaustralia #skyrim #nightingale #stealth #skyrimcosplay #leather #pleather #armor #armour #hood #black #dark #thievesguild #theelderscrolls #elderscrolls #elderscrollsskyrim

I'm so excited to go to the @stivesmedieval for the first time tomorrow!! And I was going to wear my Nightingale armour…until I found out there's isn't much shade and it's going to be over 30 degrees tomorrow ☹️☹️☹️ Soooo to avoid heatstroke and pushing my sickness into dangerous territory, I'll probably just be going in normal clothes. I'll just reminisce instead. 🖤🖤 I swear I'll find a time to wear you again Nightingale, I SWEAR. 🖤 Photo 📷 by @ehuaphotography! 🖤 🖤 #cosplay #costume #cosplaygirl #cosplayphotoshoot #nightingale #armour #armor #leather #pleather #nightingalearmour #skyrimcosplay #skyrim #theelderscrolls #TES #stealth #dark #hood #cape #cloak

According to the Elder Scrolls Wiki, Nightingales are gifted with powers from the Nocturnal called Agents. There are three types of known Agents: Agents of Stealth (crescent moon), who are expert infiltrators and use the darkness to conceal themselves at all times; Agents of Subterfuge, who use the darkness to confuse others’ thoughts and judgement; and Agents of Strife, who use the darkness for their own benefit. “They are granted the power of Nightingale Strife that creates a cord between them and their foes. This cord draws health from said foe while giving health to the Agent.”

▪️SILENCE▪️ I love it when people like my cosplays enough to do photo edits of them; they are always beautiful. The only issue I have is when proper credit isn’t given to the original photographer or to myself. This edit is amazing, which is why I’m sharing it with you, but I’m also sharing so I can have it up with all the proper credits – including the person who failed to credit us in their original. I hope that doesn’t sound too harsh – I know it’s an honour to have so many like your work and support you – but it’s a respect thing. If you like someone’s work, just please make sure they are credited, because often that’s their life your sharing. I hope that makes sense? 🖤 Original photo by @ehuaphotography Cosplay by me Edit by @hitorimi_art ▪️ ▪️ ▪️ #cosplay #photoedit #photomanip #cosplayphotography #fantasy #assassin #nighingale #skyrim #tes #tesskyrim #theelderscrolls #bethesda #videogame #videogamecosplay #cosplayer #cosplaygirl #dark #mysterious #credit #givecreditwhereitsdue #stealth
