Prince of Fate by Katsumiyo Prince of Fate by Katsumiyo
Finally starting to get photos back from Fanime! Still waiting on my big Azura shoot, but in the meantime, I found some photos on Smugmug I rather liked and the photographer was kind enough to email me the larger ones. :3
As you can see, my design is a blend of Morrowind/Oblivion and Skyrim. The base dress was Skyrim because Skyrim was the first game where Azura finally covered herself. :XD: Her crown in Skyrim was roses, but that looked hideously bulky. I wanted to pay a little homage to Morrowind by using daisy-like flowers rather than roses for the crown, and added the gold belt like the belt she had on her dress like she's had since Arena. I've seen a lot of different colors for Azura, but my palette is based on her appearance in Arena:

The dress is sort of an ambiguous color, but I preferred dark blue to black since Nocturnal wears black and Meridia appears to be wearing white. I decided to add a gradient of stars to the sleeves by hand to simulate the faded appearance of stars at sunsent and sunrise. I could talk all day about how I redesigned the costume, but I need to stop myself here, I've already gone on too long. xD
Costume made and worn by me.

Not familiar with the cosplay or game, but that doesn't mean I can't compliment it! You did a beautiful job with the flowing robes and starry textures. The comment about how "Azure finally covered herself" made me lol. xD

Haven't seen you at all at AX or Fanime, but oh well. Nice to see your cosplays again! :)

I like the color difference. I think that the "twilight" idea fits in well here. Since Nocturnal is black, and that symbolizes the whole thief concept, your ideas make Azura more true to her essence.

I like it when people take an idea and create something original with it. :) What you did is much like what I'd do if I tried this.
