This is looking fantastic! I love how you have put in the effort to embroider the designs rather than painting/printing them - it really pays off!

Can't wait to see this in person :). I'll totally be stealing you for pictures, btw XD.

Journal

DEM Boots (Posted 29th January 2013)

After looking around for some pumps or low profile boots I desided in the end to make a set out of wet suit boots and a old pair of leather shoes I bought from a charity shop for a whopping 3 pound then painted around the bottom for a overall look. there not spot on but Beggars cant be choosers I've found that every ezio cosplayer struggles wit his shoes but with these and the covers they look pretty good.

New Hidden blade and hookblade design (Posted 27th January 2013)

As my old hidden blades kinda fell apart I desided to remake them but this time without the spring loaded mech these ones are gravity fed but with a twist I added magnets to the rear so they will lock back and stay back also added a locking mech to the front so the blade with stay in place all moves smooth so you dont have to over thrust your arm to get the blade out or back in.

these blades are alot smaller than the last ones and I am able to move alot more freely than before.

Next up ....Rebuilding the shoulder armour and modifying the hood

New Update (Posted 19th January 2013)

right since our last encounter i was tinkering with a few things etc etc now ive actually had time to sort things out i have recently remade the hidden blades....AGAIN....and also started to try to papermache some new shoulder armour as last time it was like a frizbee also done some modifcations to the hood and the top making the lower part and the top as one (so its knida like a dress now) which makes it easyer to put on and finaly i have made more of the red sash as it was too short last time....

pictures to follow once i find my camera

New update (Posted 15th November 2012)

since kita when i wore this ive been tinkering with some new bits the shoder armour now fits to the shoulder and i have made it abit thicker also the forearm part as been redone

next up i will be remakin the hidden blade and hook blade also going to be making the vlad the impalers sword from the dlc unlock

Update and Tah Dah (Posted 7th April 2012)

done some more progress to the top embroided all the strips for the front and back and attached them by hand then added more detail to the front (not shown in picture) also added the details to the back(strips shown at bottom of pic)finished the hood and finished the back of the hood....

I can finaly say after 3 months of building stabbing myself and cursing the outfit that it is complete but i wont be posting finished pictures untill kitacon as a suprise so you will all have to wait :P

Embroidery Embroidery And More Embroidery (Posted 30th March 2012)

Started work on the embroidery at last and in total I have done over 30 hours so far its my first time doing this its been a long long process but I've finished the lower part of his outfit his main logo on the top and one side of the hood

next up...other side of the hood followed by the chest and arms

Hidden Blade with gauntlet (Posted 16th March 2012)

Finaly finished the hidden blade/hidden gun combo and attached it to the gauntlet
very happt on how it turned out :D

next up the other arm with hook blade

Outfit progress (Posted 16th March 2012)

Started the fabric part of the outfit now i started by cutting the shapes out using the templates i made then stiched then all together followed buy starting to embroid the parts this is the smallest and by far the easyist of the whole embroidery...took me 10 hours to do this

next up.....you guessed it more embroidary

Belt Complete (Posted 3rd March 2012)

finaly got around to finishing the belt made the throwing knifes by drawing a basic shape on a bit of wood then cutting them out sanding painting and finishing with red tape then made the holders by drawing arounf one of the knifes and cutting the seperate shapes and stiching together then stiching them in a set of 4 either side

followed by attaching the clay made buckle and other part ( not quite sure what it is ) and attached a small belt so it can stay in place because of the angle

Leg Guards (Posted 3rd March 2012)

Started the leg guards by cutting a template around the leg then making the straps and making sure that they all fit nice and neat then went onto making templates for the details i added abit extra to the front to rase it up then went onto embroiding the bottom.

..next up staining the leather

Armour update (Posted 27th February 2012)

moved onto the the main armour starting with the shoulder part and moving down to the gauntlets then the belt and the leg guards need to finish embroiding the leg parts then i can stain the leather.

moving onto the belt next updates will follow

Sword progress (Posted 26th February 2012)

Wanted to make the sword of altiar but I saw this pirate sword and liked the handle so I modifyed the handle and made a blade out of wood stuck it all together and painted

next up the throwing knifes

Forearm armour (Posted 28th January 2012)

Started this a while back and desided to start layering it instead of embroiding this time as you can see i started with the base then moved to the details followed by sewing more details in by hand

next up staining the leather

Starting the armour (Posted 28th January 2012)

Started making the armour he has on his shoulder I've had to double up the leather to make it think then lined it with pleather ready for adding the details later on tomorrow

next up detailing and staining

Belt And Pouches (Posted 28th January 2012)

Made from leather and lined with pleather the pouches stiched by hand and then stiched onto the belt also made a loop for the sword to stay tight to the body

Next up adding the bucklesand other little bits...also removing the smaller pouch and adding a bigger leather one

Hidden And Hook Blade (Posted 28th January 2012)

Heres the finished blades I've made a mech that will retract the blades at a flick of the wrist also the hidden gun fires shortened nerf darts for that stealthy nerf kill for more details on the mech...well i caint tell you that id have to kill you

Gauntlet Progress (Posted 22nd January 2012)

Started this a while back and kept it very secret but here are the gauntlets there not quite finished yet i have to add buckles and the fur to them but here is the step by step
