Description
So if anyone can help me find out and link me to the original source of my reference image I would be much obliged. As soon as I saw it I fell in love. It was a perfect base design to start my assassins costume. As for weapons, I eventually want to create a hidden retractable blade, but till then, she is going to be an archer. The apprentices show different weapons in the trailer, (man I would love to be able to wield a mace) And I thought logically, someone would be an archer. Im going to make a quiver, with arrows, and a shorter more suitable for carrying mock medieval long bow. (hopefully) ><

Making the costume so far:
I started off with a thick white drill cotton fabric, it was perfectly textured and had a lovely weight to it. I pretty much made the pattern up as I went along, But I can draw one up if anyone is interested. The black is about 20 metres of ribbon in 2 different thickness's. The shirt underneath was one I found at the royal shakespeare company sale. It cost me 30 p. I loved the style of the collar and the ruffles, and knew it would be prefect. Its been cut and sewn, as it was originally a mans shirt. The suit/hood and cape is lined with a crimson suit lining fabric, its soft and incredibly cheap. The cape itself (when finished) is a wool blend. Wool and cotton were incredibly popular at the time, so I tried to stay close to the era. The sleeves will be a thin black cotton and will hopefully have some nice movement. The straps are all pleather, from a handbag bought at primark, as well as the belts. The buckle is a buckle taken from another belt, sprayed silver and weathered.

The vambrace (arm armour) has been made from craftfoam, which was carved into, then sealed with a high tack pva glue. I can also make a tutorial for this. It was then sprayed and aged. I think thats about it so far.

This is absolutely amazing. If you make a tutorial for the vambrace I would definitely be one who would love to see this.

Ah I remember seeing you at expo, you looked fantastic! The level of detail and stuff is just...wow xD

Me & a friend are planning to work on our own apprentice cosplayers in the near future, just wondering if you ever did draw up a pattern for this? So far i'm having no such luck finding anything remotely similar to use -_-
