Skyrim Cosplayer Joins Christians For His Own Religious Protest

Every year at Dragon Con, there are some Christian protesters hanging around angry that everyone is loving nerd shit instead of Jesus. And almost every year, Heimskr from Skyrim is there to join them in their preaching.

Cosplayer Jacob Kevinsson has been dressing as the Skyrim preacher and attending Dragon Con since 2014, and most times he does, he finds the protests, slides in and expresses his own views on who is damned, who is forsaken and who is not welcome in God’s Talos’ Kingdom.


Here he is joining the protests that popped up along the route of Dragon Con’s famous parade over the weekend:

What the photo can’t show, though, is that he doesn’t just show up and walk around. He knows the speeches and becomes Heimskr, as you can see in this video from his 2015 appearance:

Very good.

We’ll have more features and galleries from Dragon Con to come over the next couple of weeks.
