The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim – Mods: The Very Best – Part 6: Armor — Part 1a: Female


armorp1

Armor is probably one of the biggest things modded in Skyrim, and some of the most made mods. There are over 1,600 armors on Skyrim Nexus, but only a few are the best. There are a lot of armors so I am breaking this down in to a 2 part female and male segment each. That’s four parts just for armor. Later on I will do one for just clothing for each sex. The armors that have been created are breathtaking, sexy, sultry, and just plain awesome. The constantly made armors are what keeps me going back to Nexus every day just so see what’s new. I use about 90% of these armors myself, but I pulled some other armors off the site that are very nice. Some armors are lore friendly, some aren’t, so just a little warning. These are mostly for the CBBE body because that is what I use, but I did include some nice UNP armor as well for people with that body mod. Here is Part 1a of the female armors. I also used my own character to model the armors unless noted.

The Alyn Shir armor for CBBE looks great. There is a lot of detail and looks like reused leather belts that were built into armor which is something that would have been done in that era. Very versatile look for light armor users.

killer

This was one of the first major vanilla armor replacers for the CBBE body back in the day. Killer Keos redid all the armors to make them more skimpy and sexy, but staying lore friendly. Pretty much every armor and piece of clothing that came on the disc is included, but over the months he added some popular armor mods to be more skimpy. This is one amazing mod and I have been using it since it was released on day 1. Props to this guy for this huge and ambitious project.

One of my older characters from February 2012. Nightingale Armor looks great when it’s more skimpy!

calientesarmor

Caliente is a very loyal modder. Making some vanilla clothes for your own body mod is very kind! Obviously one of the first conversions for the body mod, this is a great pack to start with while you shop around for other armors to add to your armory. While not all armors have been converted, most have and they are just more form fitting. Putting vanilla armors on the CBBE body makes you look like a football player, not attractive, that’s why this pack is here.

unparmor1

These are just like Caliente’s armors except for the UNP body. Pretty much every armor was converted. These armors just make the vanilla ones more form fitting like they should be. These are like the Skimpy armors, so they are a bit more lore friendly. If you have the UNP body this is a great pack to start with.

mystic1

This armor is actually one of the few compatible with the vanilla body. Not only is this an armor mod, but the Elven weapons are replaced and a couple of new horses were added! This is a great armor pack. People who are fans of the Elven armor will love this. 30 hours were put into completing this mod and is one of the best on the site for a reason. This is  gorgeous armor, also for people who are looking for female armor that isn’t revealing.

nord

If you love the hide armors in Skyrim then this is for you. Redoing the vanilla armors of the Ancient Nord armor and Savior’s Hide. This is more corset like and looks sexy without being tasteless. If you want your female character to reveal a bit more cleavage and skin this is an armor for you.

dynasty

This is one of my favorite armor mods ever. This is a super sexy chainmail armor, but the vibrant colors and sharp edges just look amazing. It really shows off the shape of the CBBE body and is perfect. While covering the entire body it is still revealing and sexy, and that is hard to pull off. Not 100% lore friendly, but has a nice Imperial and Daedric vibe. There is also a fix available HERE by a different modder which fixes the chainmail clipping issue and problems with CBBEv3 body.

darklilith

One of my favorite armors ever made. This armor isn’t just sexy, but has a horn accessory and wings! The body cuirass pushing the breasts up to an F cup for added effect. Not really lore friendly, but this was released before the Dawnguard expansion, if you think of it that way, it is! Very revealing and not for everyone, but if you want to show off some skin this is for you!

One of my early characters from March 2012. I love how I captured the lighting in this scene. I believe this was before I started using ENB wrappers.

bar

demon

Another one of my favorites. This is an armor from Diablo III. The Demon Hunter armor is very lore friendly, sexy, and sleek. The markings on the legs are highly detailed and is so well done you can almost FEEL the textures of this clothing. There is also a black version available if you aren’t a fan of brown.

My previous character from November 2012. This was taken just before the cave to start Dawnguard. This armor just looked perfect with this character and the BLEAK ENB.

elvensniper

This has become one of my favorite recent armors. It just looks so sexy and sleek without being tasteless. This is perfect for Elven races and custom Elven races such as Lunari. I love how pants were chosen instead of shorts or a skirt. Minimal amount of layers makes it look like something an Elven sniper would wear.

My current character using K ENB. The sniper armor looks amazing and the tight pants are what sell it.

bar

elven

This is a great Elven armor because of how the cuirass is done. Leaving the bottom of the breast cups open is an interesting design and is rarely done in Skyrim armor. The whole piece looks like a sculpted leaf which is what Elven armor should look like. Very beautiful.

cleavage

Don’t we all! This is a more tasteful sexy armor conversion. It is still being worked on with more armors being added. This is for people who use a body slider with CBBE and the vanilla armor conversions aren’t working such as Killer Kios. This is great for people who like their women a bit more curvy in the game. Very well done!

ivory1

This is an awesome armor. Very showy like a peacock, but a dead one. I thought the Dragon armor was awesome but this takes it to a whole new level. This is the perfect way to show off your dragon trophy I guess. Very revealing and not very lord friendly, but very artistic and great to show off in screenshots.

keel1

This is a really interesting armor and is one of the less revealing ones. Still sexy, but looks more useful for combat. The plate style reminds of something from Dead Space actually. Very nice armor for people who want something that’s not entirely lore friendly and different.

leady

Probably one of the most artistic armors right next to Ivory Hunter. This bone armor uses human bones which is both creepy and sexy. A not-so-lore-friendly armor that is very revealing, but very artistic and expressive. Great for mages who specialize in Conjuring or vampires. Super sexy and just fantastic.

A character from August 2012. The only thing not shown is the hooded cloak. As you can see it is very revealing but really cool and unique.

bar

hunress

This is one of my favorite armors. It is so lore friendly, but also sexy, and looks useful combat wise. Wearing this really makes you feel like an adventurer in Skyrim or a hunter. The fur placement was very well done and I think that’s what sells the feeling of the armor. It is also form fitting without being too revealing, great balance here. UNP BBP version available below.

For players who want a full body armor that is still sexy and stylish. This chainmail armor looks great during combat and for screenshots. this will make your heroine look powerful and fierce like the Nord she should be!

lustmord

This is an absolutely stunning armor. Probably in my top 5. Stylish, dark, sleek, sexy, beautiful, detailed; too many words to describe this. Great for vampires or use with the BLEAK ENB. The veil is a great touch and the intricate design on the armor is something that isn’t seen much in custom armors. This also includes a mini quest to acquire the spell to create blood potions, the items for the forges, and a couple of spells. A+ armor mod for sure. A must have for fans of darker armors.

mercenary

This is in my top 5 armors and one I use to screenshot with the most. It is revealing while being tasteful and makes you feel like a huntress or adventurer. It looks like old furs were used and you were in a desperate situation and just had to make some clothing with what you had. Very awesome armor.

Modder: Lustrianna

Body: CBBE, UNP

My previous character before switching body textures and ENB (December 2012). This is a gorgeous armor and great for people who want their character to look more native and wild.

bodyslide

These armors replace (or can be used as stand alone armors) the vanillas for CBBE users that use bodyslide presets. These armors are sexy without being too revealing and are very well done. Great for people who like tinkering with their character’s body sizes and want vanilla armor for it.

mak

The M at the end makes all the difference in the world Mr. Freeman. This is for people who prefer the MAK07 CBBE preset in the bodyslide tool. All the vanilla armors are redone and looks fantastic. Props to MAK for fully supporting his body mod and being loyal to fans and users.

seraphine

One of my top 5 armors. While the source game of the armor was terrible (Hunted: The Demon’s Forge) the character Seraphine was drop dead gorgeous. Her armor was also awesome and is right along the same lines as the Huntress armor above. Very well done and sexy without being too revealing.

trissshred

Part of my top 5 armors (I hope it hasn’t been over 5 thus far :/ would make me look like a fool!) This armor is dead sexy and revealing while staying lore friendly. Triss is one of the sexiest game character ever made and her Witcher 2 armor is very popular. The shreds in this armor look so real and are well done, plus the hat sells the whole thing. Very stylish and beautiful at the same time.

Modder: Esmm40

Body: CBBE

Craft: Leather

My current character using K ENB (which is a system hog but the most advanced ENB so far). Gorgeous armor

tera

This is one of my favorite armor packs. The TERA weapons were really great, not exactly lore friendly, but spectacular looking. The armors are just as fatastic, but this is a stand alone version for CBBE without having to get the UNP version then the CBBE textures conversion. All the armors have been converted (except the males). Even if you don’t like the TERA MMO these are just beautiful armors.

thalmor
One of the best armor mods out there, Thalmor Viceroy armor is just sexy and stylish. It looks intimidating and almost vampire like with maybe some Elvish thrown in. A very well done mode that also isn’t too revealing and very tasteful.

The original version of the Shredded Triss armor. This armor was perfectly replicated from The Witcher 2. Form fitting and not very revealing, but great for players who prefer that or want more a combat friendly look.
