game of thrones opening credits

What if Skyrim had a grand opening modeled after the memorable intro from Game of Thrones? Vimeo user Brady Wold has made it happen, and it couldn’t be a better fit. The game and fantasy television series go together like peanut butter and chocolate.

Wold started the project about two years ago and spent thousands of hours working and rendering the images. Wow. He used programs such as After Effects, Maya, Photoshop, and more to create the beautiful opening.

Watch it after the break.

skyrim wedding 2

There are wedding photos, and then there are wedding photos. This Skyrim-inspired picture falls into the latter category. Sam Balcomb of Rainfall (you know, the company who made the awesome Wonder Woman fan film late last year) and Kimi of Golden Lasso Cosplay celebrated their one year wedding annivesary by releasing this amazing shot of their bridal party. They both enjoy gaming so it’s a perfect fit.

The epic photo has been a year in the making and boy, was it worth the wait. As Kimi says, “Fus Ro happily ever after!”

Be sure to click the photo to enlarge and see all the glorious details.

the_saddest_khajiit_by_darrengeers-d70eql2

When I finally get around to playing Skyrim, I’ll probably decide to play as a Khajiit because they have feline tendencies. And if I ever found a lonely little Khajiit like the one pictured above on my adventures, I’d adopt it in a heartbeat. Artist Darren Geers based the image on the sad birthday cat meme, but the tiny cat reminds me of Puss in Boots in Shrek 2. Just look at those big eyes! Geers keeps the story going in two more equally sad installments.

Check out the next two parts of the series after the break.

Capture_Upload

Here’s a Skyrim mod that turns cute little Thomas the Tank Engine into a fire-breathing terror. The Really Useful Dragons mod by Pastaspace turns all the dragons into Thomas and even adds in little train whistle sound effects. It’s hilarious and terrifying at once as he swoops down from the sky. You can download the mod from Steam or NexusMods and experience the terror for yourself.

See the video after the break…

skyrim armor header

This Dovahkiin has figured out the best possible armor to make in Skyrim. He slaves away making piles of iron daggers seemingly to improve his blacksmithing skills—but this comic by Anna-Marie Jung shows he has something bigger in mind. It’s pretty ingenius and also very pointy.

Check out the full comic after the break.

skyrim prop 2

Fantasy games such as Skyrim offer a variety of gorgeous props for artisans to replicate. The group at Folkenstal has taken the task seriously and created a whole series of replica weapons and armor. You’ll be impressed by their craftsmanship. The daggers and bows and gems are made from basics such as wood and resin, and then they are painted or refined with finishing touches such as metal powder. Every element comes together to create realistic pieces that are perfect for display or cosplay.

Items start at $9.

Check out more stunning examples after the break.

dragonborn

Could you make a noise loud enough to move someone physically? The Dragonborn in Skyrim have the ability to make the Fus Ro Dah shout that’s so powerful; it displaces people. YouTube channel Vsauce3 explored whether it was possible to replicate the Fus Ro Dah in real life. They explored the effect of the decibel rating – just volume – and realized it’s not enough. It could cause internal damage without knocking you over. So what would it take? Watch the video after the break and find out (don’t worry, you won’t be blown back from your computer).

Check it out after the break.

skyrim bear

Poor Dovahbear. The cute and fuzzy Skyrim bear’s drinking problem leads him off a mountain, down a river, and he gets shot full of arrows. He’s still a giant bear who can take humans down though, so he’s got that going for him. Also, the mammal is smart. He can brew his own potions and everything. He’s just as adorable as he was in previous installments too.

Watch Dovahbear be awesome in the video after the break.
