Costume Information

Description
I've always been tempted by doing as assassin's creed costume. I was originally planning to do a femme-ezio, but time constraints mean I just can't get it done in time. Instead I'll be doing an original design, but I'm hoping it will be along the same theme. The actual design will be decided by whatever scraps of fabric I find in my cupboard, as I'm hoping to only buy underclothes and materials for the hidden blade.

hehe, thanks. I'm probably going to have whatever shoes I use for catwoman - so probably my tall black lace-ups unless I get some new ones. Matt and I are working on hidden blades, and I might have some throwing knives somewhere if I have time :)

Revamp (Posted 4th March 2013)

Decided to add more to this costume, as it was great fun to wear, but I feel it was a bit plain. I still don't have the time / effort to make a whole Ezio outfit, but I've decided to add a capey pauldron thing like he has, some other leather bits, brown trousers instead of black, and some more odds and ends. Still trying to decide on a weapon...

First wear (Posted 8th November 2012)

Well, despite being ill, I got some semblence of this done for MCM October Expo 2012 a few weeks back. Unfortunately there were a fair few problems with it.
The hood is too light and the strong wind that weekend made it hard to keep in place, so I'm going to add some weights to the peak and brim to hopefully solve that
It was much too cold to wear leggings, so I wore trousers
The bag on the belt was too heavy against my poorly stomach, so again, I had to wear trousers becuase of the pockets. With any luck I'll find some trousers of my own this time instead of having to borrow Chloe's (big thanks to Chloe) ^_^'
Also, as I didn't manage to get a hidden blade done, I'm going to try that for next time.

I was surprised that some people still thought I was an Ezio. I definitely want to make my costume more elaborate, including longer flaps, more decoration, etc, but now I'm not sure whether to just make an Ezio outfit...

Almost done (Posted 9th October 2012)

Well, been a bit ill recently so haven't managed to get much done, meaning I've had to cut down my plans for costumes a bit.
For my assassin I've altered a plain white men's shirt - I got one several sizes too big, altered the torso to fit, put the excess length into angled bits and took off all the modern trimmings like buttons and whatnot. The overcoat I made a while back out of cotton and fake suede for the hood lining. The red bit around the waist was just a band of fabric but now it's got proper corset boning to make it keep shape, but I'm also considering adding the dangly bit to have the iconic red sash. As I'll be wearing leggings with this, I needed a bag, so I made the belts and bag, though unfortunately I've had to use velcro to secure it, which is rather visible - it's a shame, but I don't think I'll have time to change it, so just pretend it's not there =p. I've also got a pair of long leather gloves to go with it. I was hoping to have a fully working hidden blade, but that's out of the question now. To make sure it doesn't get mistaken for a real dangerous item, I'll instead try to make one that has to be flicked out and retracts back by itself, instead of the other way round.
