Information

Aaah~ The Assassin's Creed series is like...my favourite video game series ever >//< and i've been meaning to cosplay Claudia for a while now, a few friends have decided to do an Auditore family group and they've kindly let me join as their Claudia <3 I hope I don't let them down!

This quickly became my most expensive costume to make to date, it was so different and challenging to me but I'm so glad I actually got around to finishing this off <3 Its so heavy to wear but I adore all the fabrics and literally like 50+ meters of lace that is on this thing!
I had the best time with my Fratelli!

The lack of nice references is annoying though T_T

Progress Journal

Headband + Hair Snood (Posted 15th July 2015)

Hairband was made by taking a wide aliceband, adding wadding to create a padded band, and wrapped in various ribbons, I've also attached a wig clip to help stop everything sliding around.
The hair snood was kindly crocheted by my grandmother (As I absolutely suck at crochet and knitting guh) in pretty gold metallic yarn,honestly, this isn't accurate to Claudia's game design, but i tried to make something more accurate with netting and ribbons and everything looked too busy and didn't sit right, so i opted for something a little simpler but still ,in my opinion, looks like it belongs and still looks fancy. I hand sewed pearls across the whole thing to add a little something more~

Bodice WIP~ I'm trying to add as much of the details as I can , then I can sew it all up!~

Necklace+Earings~ (Posted 3rd July 2015)

I decided to have a go at making Claudia's jewelry out of worbla instead of polymer clay (which i suck at!)I really like how they turned out, it was kinda tough working at such a small scale though!
There aren't a lot of Highres images of Claudia's jewelry from AC2 so the design is a little improvised, I took inspiration from other pieces of renaissance jewelry.

Pink+Gold fabrics~ (Posted 3rd July 2015)

Many thanks to my Fratello for helping me find these beautiful fabrics <3~
I love that the pink has a gold shimmer to it ,it matches the gold fabric so nicely =D
