Vampirism in Skyrim is a disease. But I’m not really sure I agree with such a negative connotation.

Sure, vampires do behave a little weird. But you get so many cool abilities that I really don’t understand how any mortal would want to cure the Sanguinare Vampiris syndrome.

If you’re like me and have happily turned your Skyrim character into a vampire, then you’ve come to the right place.

Because we’ve already shared a bunch of vampire-themed mods, but how about vampire-themed armor mods?

Now you can look as cool as any vampire could, plus you can also prevent some of the weaknesses that come with that kooky vampiric transformation.


7. Vampire Daywalker Armor

Being a vampire is the coolest thing ever.

What isn’t the coolest thing ever, is having to deal with so many different weaknesses.

Vampire Daywalker Armor is the armor mod to download if you still want to be a vampire, but also want to spend your days walking around the countryside while basking in the glorious sun.

I have no idea what type of vampire would want to do that… but hey, everyone’s got their own tastes, right?


6. Heavy Vampire Armor

There are times when role-playing games really baffle me.

If their premise is that I get to be whoever I want, why do I get punished for some of my choices?

This Heavy Vampire Armor mod attempts to fix this by introducing a heavy variant of the “Vampire Armor” that you’d get when siding with the Vampires of Volkihar.

And it’s a great mod to try out for sure.

Take that, you Light Armor maniacs. Now we’re on the same level!


5. Volkihar Knight – Vampire Armor

Speaking about the Vampires of Volkihar, if you’re looking into becoming a legend for the faction, you really need to download this armor pack

It’s totally on-par with the Skyrim lore so it fits right in.

And it features three different craftable standard variations, as well as Legendary versions with unique effects.

You’ll have to work hard for them, though. Because you can only find them in Volkihar Cathedral after confronting Harkon.

Time to get to work!


4. Blood Witch Armor

If you’ve never made a female character in Skyrim, you don’t really know what you’re missing out on.

But maybe inspiration can strike you with this awesome mod.

Blood Witch Armor is a great-looking high-resolution customized light armor that comes with decent base stats. And it can be further improved with the right materials, so that’s a sweet bonus.

Not that you’d really need to improve it much… any enemy will want to surrender as soon as they catch a glimpse of the dark glimmer that surrounds you.


3. Lustmord Vampire Armor

Vampires are cool, no question about it.

But that doesn’t mean they’ve reached peak coolness in Skyrim. No, we can make them look even cooler with the right armor.

And Lustmord Vampire Armor is one amazing mod that adds tons of new gear, and it all simply looks amazing.

The female variants look the best, in my humble vampiric opinion.

But you’ll find something cool to wear here even if you’re playing a male character.

Just remember to take some screenshots to show off your superior fashion sense to the world.


2. Real Royal Vampire Armor

I don’t know about you, but I’m a complete sucker for capes.

If any armor suit doesn’t have it, I won’t wear it, no matter how much protection it provides. Well, within reason…

But this line of thinking definitely doesn’t help me in Skyrim.

And thankfully a modder came to the rescue with this Real Royal Vampire mod. It includes retextures of the Vampire Armor that you’d get in the Dawnguard expansion.

Both male and female variants come with a great-looking design, and a sleek cape, which I’m thrilled with (and I think you’ll like it too!)


1. TDN Vampire Armor Retexture

Custom armor with intricate designs are tough to come by.

But there are times when something simpler can just work better.

And this Vampire Armor Retexture pack brings an HD retexture of all the vampire armors you’d get in Skyrim’s Dawnguard expansion.

These may not be as flashy as some of the others armor mods in this list.

But when things look great at 4K resolution and above, isn’t that flashy enough?
