29th January 2013: DEM Boots 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.
27th January 2013: New Hidden blade and hookblade design 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
19th January 2013: New Update 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....
