Truly light Glass Armor - Replacer
A Glass Armor that thieves, scout, and assassins could actually wear proudly. Female only.
Lore friendly, somehow sexy.
Textures are linked with the vanilla version (i.e. if you use a texture replacer it will affect also this armor),
while the under-armor leather suit has its own textures.

What is it? ______________________________________________________________
A replacer for the female vanilla glass armor.
Textures of the leather suit are especially made for this armor by OperatorCactus (the  seams are 100% original).

Metching versions? _____________________________________________________________________
Truly Light Elven Armor (MALE)
Truly Light Elven Armor (FEMALE)

Why are you claiming this is truly light? _______________________________________
A light armor should be planned to be silent, light, and avoid to prevent movements; no matter if
some parts of the body are poorly covered. That is: rigid plates 
should not cover mobile parts
(prevents movements), no jingling parts like chain 
mail or glass skirt (noisy), caution with mobile
joints (could be noisy and/or 
prevents movements).

A heavy armor is planned to cover the body completely as it is needed for a field battle; no matter
if it is bulky, heavy, noisy, and prevents some movements. I's only goal is to bring you home alive.

Therefore, vanilla Glass Armor looks actually as a heavy armor while it should be light.

Ported versions____________________________________________________________
Xbox One - 
Truly Light Glass Armor for Seraphim
Skyrim version (original mod) - Truly light Glass Armor - Replacer
SSE CBBE 3BA (3BBB) version - Truly Light Glass Armor (Female) for SSE - Replacer - Standalone - CBBE 3BA (3BBB) 

The mod includes the textures of the leather suit only (by OperatorCactus), while points to the vanilla
textures for all the rest of the armor. Therefore, if you are using a mod replacing the glass armor textures
it will affect this mod too. Many of the pictures above are using different retextures mods.
In my personal opinion the Retexture [aMidianBorn Glass Armor (by Modd3r and CaBaL), Thalmor variant] is fully
within the spirit of this armor for scaut-rangers-assassins. 

Change Log_______________________________________________________________

Questions and answers_____________________________________________________
Are you going to produce a male version?
Well,this is not scheduled yet. If you will produce the mail version from this armor 
you are welcome
(please cite this page, and for the leather textures ask permission to OperatorCactus).

How about a standalone version?
I did it for Skyrim, (see ported versions) but I don't have SSE and I cannot make sure it works for SSE.

Conversions to other body types?
Conversion to different breast size (A, C, D) and to a muscle 
body are scheduled but not that soon.
Moreover the armor is independent from the body type (only armor with visible skin are linked to UNP-type or CBBE-type).
In case there is a shape issue. This shape was made over a DrimGirl-like body, UNP-family.

Preset of the wonderful green face lady
The wonderful lady with green stripes on the face was uploaded by snelss0, a preset is available here:
Celena Preset by snelss0
it was made for Skyrim, please Post here or PM me for saying if it works for SSE too.

How about the scarf?
The pics of the scarf (and a Bodyslide conversion) are by OperatorCactus (my coauthor, the texturer), about the scarf he said:
The scarf is of Skyrim Scarves and Mufflers with my own personal tweaks to the colors. If that mod does not exist anymore, Keeping Warm uses the same models so making a red scarf in photoshop or gimp is easy peasy.
The red cape is from HDT capes and is easily found on the nexus.
Hope I've helped. 

The glass armor parts use vanilla texture paths so any retexture will also affect this armor.

Bodyslide version
I do not use bodyslide. OperatorCactus said:
It's very easy to make a conversion yourself. The pictures I uploaded show the armor with my own preset and tweaks.

For Modders_____________________________________________________________
I need someone able to build a simple quest for the "Dibella Relic Armor". The armor is nearly ready
(I'm at half work with the male version). A lore friendly 
story is ready (but negotiable), I can help as Papyrus
scripter. The idea to 
publish armor and quest nearly the same day with a link among them in the respective
Nexus pages. If you are a bit interested PM me, and I will send you the story.
