Vilja (The Elder Scrolls V Skyrim)

Vilja is a vision that should brighten any Skyrim playthrough.

Apologies to many for my recent lack of updates both here and on the Channel- I've found myself quite lost once again in the vast expanses and labyrinthine underreaches of the virtual fantasy world known as Skyrim. This is in no small part to my recent upgrading to yet another new and slightly more capable laptop- still not a powerhouse of gaming, but enough to give the world of Tamriel that much more glitz and polish to make it fresh and wonderful to play within again. As many of you should know, Skyrim with the right mods is a veritable foot-lover's paradise, a whole continent of lovely femme fatales' soles to ogle or even (literally) hunt down. There are even quite a few lovely NPCs that have captured our fancies.

Vilja is indeed... enchanting. Heheh.

Recently one of our longtime readers/friends and fellow foot-fans, OlgerthHeidern666 brought a cool mod to our attention. Olgerth is a fellow Skyrim fan and has quite a few awesome mods revealed, such as the 'barefoot' leggings for female characters in the game (sadly something I can't always use due to my choice of body replacement mods). His latest update to us is a Companion mod called Vilja in Skyrim. For those not well-versed in Elder Scroll modding (me included, actually), the character Vilja was also a companion mod, a customizable NPC ally, from the previous ES game, Oblivion. Well, modders have brought this fan favorite sidekick into the world of Skyrim, and she's apparently more interactive than ever.

Some of Vilja's ramblings are quite interesting for footfans in particular...

Vilja comes with thousands of lines of spoken dialogue, her own quests and questline, the ability to interact with the player more intimately (games and more in-depth actions... what were you thinking?) and in all respects seems to be a fully-realized A.I. character compared to all the other NPCs in the game. Best part is, you can outfit her pretty much as you want, and as you see in these pics (provided by Olgerth from his game), barefoot Vilja is a lovely sight.

A girl and her horse.

Of course, it should go without saying that this lovely lass is far more than just a lovely pair of legs to admire. Her character, personality and storyline should add greatly to the enjoyment and immersion in your Skyrim playthroughs. Whether you're a footfan or not, if you play Skyrim on PC and like companions riding along with you, having this talkative, headstrong young lady may be a wonderfully refreshing experience. Thanks to Olgerth for introducing us to this beauty from Solstheim!


  1. Great article! 'Course, I'm biased :)

  2. Hello Mr. Virtual Soles :) I always appreciate coming to your page to see what new news you have to share with the rest of us foot aficionados of the like. :) Always appreciate it for the main game of mine SFXT. Question, do you happen to have an e-mail I can reach you at? The reason I ask is because I was asking a friend of yours from DA, Segadordelinks,if he had the particular mod for the Asuka barefoot Ryu cosplay. Unfortunately, he does not have the link anymore with her having very big feet like you have. Can you do me a BIG favor and give me the files that can make this happen. I always wanted to play with this mod having bigger feet, not smaller ones. :) I would greatly appreciate it!! If you do happen to see my comment on this page, that's wonderful. What is your e-mail address? IF you can do this, I will make you a kick ass banner logo for your page if you wish just for helping me out. Stay awesome bro.

  3. Hello, Atsushi-Man!

    I know EXACTLY how you feel. I myself prefer the 'original size' Asuka mod instead of the resized, revised version (it just seems off, and seems to glitch into the floor for me). Thankfully I do have that version and I can send it to you if you send me your email addy. Email me at

  4. I bow down before The Sole Keeper himself. *bows* I am not worthy ;) lol. ^_^ Thanks! And seriously, those tug boats of hers are just too good looking to pass up. It's the finer things like this that give the game more replay value if only Capcom ever understood that...oh well. =) That's great! Oh yes, before writing this comment, I just e-mailed you. Mine is :D
