Wow, this is amazing!
I just finished AC3 the other day and was memorised by the idea of how anyone could cosplay him and give his outfit justice. But this is incredible!

Journal

Vest and Jacket Sleeves complete (Posted 3rd September 2012)

There are various methods that people have suggested for how Connor's Sleeves attatch to his coat. In the end we opted to go for attaching them to the undervest method. Everything is fully lined with blue lining. The vest is actually sewn shut at the front and a zip has been put into the back as this seemed the easiest way to make the front stay flat.

Only a little more progress needed on the jacket. The jacket is made but just need to add the collar and the front blue panels with the millions of buttons. The hood and hood lining have been sew but the hood needs to be altered to fit the head correctly. The lining will be attatched after this process. Then finally the jacket collar and the strips of wool fabric to attatch the hood to the jacket. oh and the big blue diamond that goes on the back and the fake pockets. So about Jacket and hood are about 50%.

Massive Fabric Order (Posted 1st June 2012)

So the process begins. Gaming_goddess has ordered all the fabric for my connor cosplay and she is eaglerly awaiting it's arrival. We decided on a synthetic wool in the end to keep cost down as it's £9 a meter instead of the £30+ that 100% pure wool can be. For the waitscoat we are using a fairly thin cotton drill to counter the factor the coat will be so warm.

We had originally decided to use leather strips for edging but then gaming_goddess had the idea of using seude as she can also make gauntlets and fingerless gloves from it as it would A. be cheaper; B. nice and soft to wear and C all those segments match and then the other leather work is a different colour which is more accurate to the artwork. Though I may change my mind and make the gauntlet and gloves out of leather if I'm not happy with how the seude looks.

Currently left to buy is:
Order Buttons.
Order Coat Pattern.
Buy Jeans
Buy a thin shirt to wear under all clothing.
Buy Milliput for assassin emblems
Buy fabric for sash
Buy primarni finest slipper to build boots from.
Consider buying boot cover pattern.
Beads for Beading

So still a lot of work to go but staying proactive. Really please I decided to cosplay Connor as I really like his design. Hope it comes out as well as I invisage.
