|A Multi-player Animi Avatar used by Abstergo Industries to train their recruits to fight the Assassin Brotherhood based on the Assassin turned Templar, Vali cel Tradat.|
I decided to do this costume as an alternative to Ezio. I still intend to do Ezio as a costume, but since there are so many others around, I am in no rush at this point.
It'll also be good to have a character that can be used for both Assassin and Templar photoshoots
Update - 2/6/16
I'm putting this costume back in the Planned section, since most of what was put together previously needs to be scrapped and started afresh.

MCM Comic Con - May 2013 (Posted 28th May 2013)
So, the plan was to wear Vali at May Expo, but with alot of things going on in the weeks running up to the event, I didn't get a chance to have a trial wear before the event.
Hidden Blade Mod (Posted 18th May 2013)
So, I've make a modification to my Hidden Blade after seeing a tutorial on YouTube so that I can activate it with a length of fishing line around my finger.
Photos to come once it's all sorted......
WIP Update (Posted 11th May 2013)
The tunic is pretty much complete, and the trousers are being cut out as I type.
The only parts that still haven't been started are the frogs needed for my belt. But these won't take long, even making them out of leather....
Tunic WIP (Posted 6th April 2013)
Of all the unusual costumes I've considered or built, this is one of the worst. And it looks like it should be really easy...
There is a crossover on the tunic which has been driving us a bit nuts. We think we've sorted it now, but it's certainly given me a different view of supposedly easy costumes
Katar Body - Primer stage (Posted 10th February 2013)
After painting the blade, I've discovered that on the sort of wood that I'm using, the grain shows through the paint.
To counter this, I'm going to use a primer coat before I paint any more.
If this doesn't work, I will have to sand everything down and give it a layer of either wood filler, or PVA glue.....

Progress Started (Posted 22nd April 2012)
Since Revelations has now been out for some time, I have managed to get myself some good quality reference pics for this costume.
I'll be starting the build on this next month (May 2012), and will hopefully have it completed for October Expo 2012
