    Hello there anyone who is willing to help me. I am in the process of making a build that is based off of the embodiment of terror in the night. I need an armor combination that is not heavy. I am looking for an all black set. NEED HELP! anything is much appreciated.

    Nightingale Hood, Vampire Gloves, Black Vampire Armor, and Guildmaster's Boots.

    If you're not afraid to try some clothing, swap Mourner's Clothes for the Vamp Armor.

    I was thinking og using mourners clothes. I like your idea though. The hood boosts illusion correct?

    Yeah, it boosts Illusion. Definitely do Mourner's clothes, it looks fantastic! The Vampire Gloves give a dark vibe and the Guildmaster's Boots (although difficult to obtain) are the best looking black boots in the game.

    I second Alastor's suggestion wholeheartedly. Can't get much more frightful and gloomy than that.

    You could always go Nightingale Boots(muffled), Vampire Boots(custom enchantment), or black Boots from the Radiant Raiment. What enchantment are you looking for?

    And if I could provide screens I would :p

    Nightingale Hood looks so good, I'd put it on any character even if it doesn't use illusion :D

    As an interesting mix, try using the sleeveless thieves guild armor (summerset shadows), their boots, stormcloak officer gloves, and the executioner hood.
    Its grey, not black, i know; but it looks seriously scary.

    The boots do 15% sneak and the torso adds 15 stamina, however the Blackguard armor has the exact same texture but with 50 carrying capacity on torso and 40% pickpocket success on boots. Blackguards armor also has an extra 2 armor on each piece of equipment. My recommendation would be full guild masters armor with nightingale hood... Most baddass combo in the game imo

    The most badass combo in the game is Nordic Carved Boots/Gauntlets/Armor and a nightgale hood

    Mourner clothes,vampire boots and gauntlets and the shrouded hood/executioner hood

    I would say Guild Master's armour and boots, Nightingale hood and Vampire gauntlets. The claws on the gauntlets look extra menacing :P Also, I don't know what skills you're taking but can I recommend the Skull of Corruption as a weapon? It has a really fast fire rate compared with other staves and can do heavy damage per second when filled with dreams.
