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!

Barefoot Beach Babes in Dead or Alive 5 Plus?

Hitomi, barefoot and NOT in her karate gi? My Gosh!

Last year's return of Dead or Alive 5 surely pleased a lot of its longtime fans... but as well sorely disappointed foot lovers. There were bikinis aplenty for the lovely DOA ladies, but ALL of them came with footwear. Apparently Team Ninja as a whole have no clue that feet are sexy- well, the ones who handle their Facebook page surely don't, as they seemed to be puzzled that a lot of people were asking for a Shoe Toggle option in the game. It even reached a point where someone set up a petition asking for it (which gathered at least the needed amount of 100 signatures). After that though, there hasn't been word or sign of them answering footfans' wishes... until now.

Finally, a DOA game where both fighting AND gravure fan service mix and match.

Judging from the trailer above, the upcoming Playstation Vita port of DOA5, titled Dead or Alive 5 Plus, will have some of the girls wearing outfits where they are barefoot. Hitomi the karate hottie, plus kunoichis Kasumi and Ayane are shown shoeless as they cavort on the new beach stage, 'Zack Island'.

Logically and hopefully, all the girls will have barefoot outfits or have a Shoe Toggle so they can kick off their bothersome sandals and boots and show off their perfect soles. It's something we footfans have been wishing for, and perhaps something great. Great enough to warrant purchasing a Vita? We'll see. DOA5 Plus is out this coming March. I'll keep my eyes on this.

Alva (Elder Scrolls V Skyrim PC)

Surely one of the most alluring faces (and feet) you'll meet in Skyrim...

It's been a while, but though I haven't been posting a ton of stuff from this awesome RPG, I actually have never really stopped playing Skyrim. It's just too cool a game with too sexy feet to leave for too long. Of course, that goes without saying that I'm talking about the divine PC version, with mods installed to turn the otherwise horrific, deformed bare feet of the vanilla version into luscious peds that would make any foot fan drool.
Anyways I focus yet again on another sexy NPC and femme fatale you'll encounter in the game- the seductive Alva. You'll meet this beauty in the town of Morthal, where she is involved in a quite messy and tragic affair that has you investigating for some dirty secrets. It eventually leads to you breaking into her home and, most probably putting an end to her since she's an evil vampire bent on enslaving the place. Oh well.

Even when I played the game on the PS3, Alva was already fetching without the aid of body and face mods to beautify the usually-weathered and wrinkled look of the default character models. But as you can see here, with mods like CBBE (with FemFeet) and Coverwomen (my face mod of choice), she is dangerously hot as the temptress that she should be. Of course, to view her barefoot you're gonna have to take her down (as you would most of the random babes you'll enounter) but then you also get to pose her as you wish- best I guess in her dark cellar of a lair, which comes with a convenient coffin. Hey, before you finished her off, she was already undead anyway.

Sadly I didn't have the Dead Thrall spell yet when I visited Morthal the first time, so I wasn't able to have Alva along for a trip this time, like I did on the PS3 game. But then again, I have these rather dramatic posed pics as a souvenir of some memorable undead vixen toes to dream in the darkness...
