Description
==========================================================================================================================================

This mod add the Elven Knight heavy armour (female only) to Skyrim. The armour is composed of 15 different pieces plus a wig for the hood that can be created at any normal forge and are found under the Daedric section. All pieces are upgradable at workbenches and fully enchantable.

The ratings for the armour are similar to those of the Daedric Dragonscale armour.

The armour comes in 4 different colour combinations: Silver metal and black leather, Gold metal and red leather, Copper metal and green leather and Black metal and brown leather.

There is a wig for the hood changes colour with your character's hair colour. This only works on the player, so it is called "Elven Knight Wig - Player". The ability of the wig to keep the colour when unequipping/equipping it or when exiting Skyrim completely and loading a saved game, it is managed through scripts that require SKSE version 1.6.16 or higher. The scripts work for vanilla hair colours and custom hair colours added by the RaceMenu mod. If you don't use SKSE or use an older version, when the wig looses its hair colour use the showracemenu console command to set your character's hair colour again and that will fix the wig's colour.  
There are also other 8 wigs that have a fixed colour, intended for followers or other NPCs.

This makes a total of 69 new items (provided I counted them correctly) added to the game. You can combine the pieces of the different colours.

I've followed the slot usage convention explained here: Skyrim bodyparts number

Required mods
==========================================================================================================================================

The female bodies used for the armour are the default UNP bodies (http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/downloads/file.php?id=6709). 
But, if you use the chainmail version of the cuirass you can use any body mod as it covers the body completely.
If you use another body mod you may see weird textures in places were the clothing shows the skin or see some clipping.

The ability of the wig to keep the colour when unequipping/equipping it or when exiting Skyrim completely and loading a saved game is managed through scripts that require SKSE version 1.6.16 or higher (SKSE). If you don't use SKSE or use an older ersion, when the wig looses its hair colour use the showracemenu console command to set your character's hair colour again and that will fix the wig's colour.

Incompatibility
==========================================================================================================================================

None that I am aware of. If you find anything, please tell me.

Known issues or bugs
==========================================================================================================================================

There is some clipping in some poses. 
The wig and helmet are visible when equipped by beast races, but they may clip as their head has a different shape than the human head.
The scripts for the player's wig work for vanilla hair colours and custom colours added by the Race Menu mod by Expired. If you are using custom hair colours added by another mod they may not work (I just don't know).
If you find anything else, please tell me.
