Skyrim’s popularity on PC is one based solely on mods. Sure, the game is quite good and boasts hours upon weeks of content, but after celebrating its one year birthday recently, not too many still play the base game by itself. However, luckily the PC community has access to the real gems of the game: their own. With mod tools like the Creation Kit, players can truly create anything they want in the game. Trolls with troll faces? Done. Killable children? Done. Less spiders, more unanimated bears? Done. Skyrim modders cab truly make anything their heart desires, and some players have very odd desires.

One of the most common and easy forms of modding for the game comes from creating and modifying armours in the game. Whether it be creating higher resolution textures, bringing some old favourites back from Oblivion or designing entirely new sets, modders really love to make armour. Very occasionally, a mod comes out which lets us play as our favourite characters from other media franchises, or, at least, where their clothes.

So here are 10 sets of armour we would totally wear in Skyrim. Modding community, listen up!


10. Nathan Drake’s Clothes in Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception

Nathan Drake

A franchise likely not familiar to this side of the Skyrim community (the PC side, that is), Uncharted features some very well designed yet still very real world designs for the clothes of protagonist, Nathan Drake. The standout, however, is Nate’s desert gear in the latest outing, Drake’s Deception. From the light clothing to the scarf, and the weapon holsters, everything about the clothes just scream desert adventurer. It would fit quite nicely into Skyrim, too. I imagine that the scarf could be moulded to fit over the Dragonborn’s mouth, to protect him or her from the snow and blizzards of the north. The pants and shoes offer perfect long term endurance, and the shirt it long enough the keep you warm, but short enough to keep you cool in a dragon attack. Aside from that, it just looks so damn cool. I mean, what PS3 owner doesn’t recognise this iconic outfit?

For Skyrim usage, however, I don’t imagine this fitting into the armour category, more of a robe-like creation would fit it better. If the scarf went over the mouth like I mentioned beforehand, it could have an enchantment to resist cold. The boots could allow for more stamina, and the shirt could be just a shirt. The weapon holster could act as an inventory increase, allowing you to carry more with being slowed down.
