About this mod

Wear the Dragon Priest Masks on the side of your head so they don't obscure your face.

Original Skyrim Version

A little mod I decided to make because I hadn't seen anyone attempt it but here it is!

Have you ever wanted to wear a Dragon Priest mask without it obscuring your character's pretty face? Do you still want to wear it and have it worn somewhere where it makes more sense to benefit from its enchantment and armor rating (sort of)? Or do you just want to wear it more stylishly? Well, here you go! Now you can wear the Dragon Priest masks without them covering your entire face, having them make more sense to gain their enchantments, and looking more stylish at the same time!

I know my pictures mostly showcase women but my mod also works for males too! And the beast races! Custom races also work too (if they have DefaultRace or any vanilla playable race as their ArmorRace). Clipping may be involved but if there is anything major, please let me know.

Where to get them?
Craft them with an original Dragon Priest mask at a smithing forge. You can revert them back to their original form by using one of my masks and a leather. Thanks to the clever idea of Warmongers Armory with its belt masks.

Disclaimer: Some of the mask in the images use textures from other mods not yet available for Special Edition but you should be able to just use
the textures as is as well as my optional downloads from the original Skyrim Nexus version of this mod.

None, but one of the optional files do. Apopyhsis Dragon Priest Masks SE is not technically a requirement (because it's just textures), but I redirected the texture paths of the Texture Sets I created for the Apophysis Side Dragon Priest Masks Addon to match the files paths of the textures used. If you try to use it without Apophysis DPM SE as specified, textures will be missing.

Install directly to the data folder or use a mod manager. Doesn't matter what order the optional files and requirement textures need to be installed.

Go to a smithing forge and turn any side Dragon Priest masks back to their normal state or you will lose them. Delete SideDragonPriestMasks.esp and any SDPM_....esps still on. Delete all of the files in the meshes\armor\imacobra directory including the imacobra folder itself.

My masks do not replace the original Dragon Priest Masks (initially). They need to be crafted with the very masks themselves. With this, no vanilla records are edited so it should be compatible with everything.

They can't be put on the busts in Bromjunaar Sanctuary (Labyrinthian) or any mod-added Dragon Priest busts. Just revert them back to normal if you want to display them.

Vanilla - Does not replace original DP masks.
USSEP - I have to double check this.
Dragonborn - Dragonborn masks NOT included.
Apophysis Dragon Priest Masks SE - Optional file to match texture paths available for download.

My mod edits nothing about the masked Dragon Priests so any mods modifying them are completely compatible with my mod.

PM me first please.

None of the optional downloads include ANY files from the mods that I specified were a requirement. I simply redirected file paths in the esps to match
those from the other retexture mods so you CAN use the optional files without them but a texture or two will be missing anyway.

Billyro - for fixing the Konahrik side mask meshes from disappearing at certain angles and helping me add visible backsides to the masks. Thanks Billy!
acobral - for taking most of my screenshots with Elder Blood ENB.

Unique Dragon Priest Masks (skyrimaguas), Apophysis (pondcypress), Psychosteve's (psychosteve), Dragon Masks Retextured (betterbecause), and Dragon Priest Helm HD Multi-Pack DrDOOM Terminator Spiderman (Jake Fischer) textures are not included in my mod at all. I just used them for my screenshots.
