For Halloween last year my son wanted to be Altier from the video game “Assassin’s Creed”. And being the geeks that we are I totally wanted to step up to the challenge. I used a suede-cloth with a heavy fusible interfacing to make the “armor” portions of the costume. He used the muslin pants I had made for his former pirate costume and then an old white bed sheet for the shirt. For the vest was a heavy bright white cotton with a silver trim. But the hood is what I’m most proud of as I used a cape pattern from an OOP pattern, and then sort of draped the collar portion so it would set over his shoulder and then the point on the front.
I still have a harness and weapons sheaths that need to be added but, since I made his day when we went to the Renaissance Festival and bought him REAL leather bracers, I’ll probably do some of those later out of deer leather (I have a native american friend that hunts).
I don’t actually have much in the way of blog posts other than our outing, I’m just going to ask that you come join me in the fun at my blog.
