Costume Information

Description
Time to bring out my (derpy novice) Altaïr, to go with x-Blade-x's (badass) grumpy Malik when she does him, yup yup 8D

Should hopefully be making this some time in the summer, to wear on multiple occasions.

EDIT 09/14: couldn't get Altair done in time for Alcon due to sewing machine herp-derpery, but this gives me more time to work on him now and get him done to a standard I'm happy with. No more half-broken/left behind props!

Maybe 8D Would definitely like to do it sometime next year, so it's definitely a possibility. We'll have to work it out properly this week :D

(There's a small part of me that keeps getting swayed to coming for the entirety of Alcon again xD Depends on what else is happening around then with other cons/whatever I'm doing at that point in my life without uni D;)

Journal

Right bracer (Posted 6th August 2014)

All done now, again apart from the buckles. Next on my agenda is boot covers!

Left bracer (Posted 5th August 2014)

Finally ordered some rivets and buckles (the latter of which have yet to arrive) so I churned out some more progress on Altair. This is the bracer which has the hidden blade (which I realise I have yet to make!). I got anal with the rivets and put them in even where you can't see them, but it'll be sturdier this way and I won't be so concerned about any of the straps coming off.

Just need buckles so I can trim the straps, and we're all done with this one!

Short sword (Posted 4th August 2014)

So this is the weapon I used the most when I played AC, and (kind of expectedly) it's my favourite of the props I've made for Altair so far. I was really concerned about the holster because the handle of the short sword faces downwards, and my sword is rather pommel-heavy. But, with the magic of worbla, craft foam and extra pleather 'straps', I'm 99% confident that this sword will be going absolutely nowhere.

Perhaps not even for photos (at least, not without a struggle. I may have made the sheath a little tight xD)

Arm plates 100% (Posted 8th April 2014)

All I need to get to finish both bracers are some studs and buckles, which I'll hopefully get sorted soon. Hooray for early progress!
