Skyrim has been around for over a decade now, and the various cosplays of the game’s popular characters never cease to amaze us.

Skyrim has one of the most active communities out there, which includes people who create mods, design artwork, and do a plethora of other things around the game. Although you may have seen several Skyrim cosplays throughout the year, this Aela cosplay is a worthy rival to be one of the best ever.
