Guys, if you are a real fan of Assassin’s Creed Altair video game, Assassin’s Creed Altair costume must delight you for cosplay entertainment. His super cool costume and detailed accessories are set to be most wanted by numerous cosplayers at present. Now here comes a nice plan to make the costume for the real return of cool Altair in Assassin’s Creed.
First, collect good pictures of the costume as possible as you can. This would be very helpful when you are planning and shopping the fabrics. Also make sure you are skilled at cutting and stitching. If not, hire a seamstress to realize your design.
Second, find nice fabric. A good choice for the robe and cloak would be canvas or linen as they are used a lot in the middle age and look like the texture used in the game. The natural canvas color is really ideal to make the costume.
Third, look for other parts of his clothes. He has a light grey shirt and grey/tan pants. The shirt could be linen, while the pants could be denim, cotton or a lighter kind of canvas.
Reminder: If you are lucky, you can also find all separate parts of the costume in different attire stores and alter them to match and form the costume.
Forth, make sure the costume look is finished delicately. According to the picture you collect, find proper fabric for the belt/sash. Also in this regard, use the color that appears rich in a dark shaded texture, which made of 55% rayon 45% linen is perfect.
Fifth, choose whether we want to make the leather parts out of real leather or leather. If the budget permits, the real leather tends to be more ideal as some kind of leather could have a nice look and texture.
Sixth, use the ribbon for the “sleeves” of the sleeveless robe. When working on the patterns, the robes, shirts, pants and hood looks are fairly simple to achieve. However, the hardest part of the Altair costume would be the belts. The custom patterns for the large “belt’ and hardness seeming boots are both the finishing touches of the vivid ensemble. The sharply vivid details attached matter a lot. You can just finish a detailed cover on a pair of cheap boots!
Finally, find the accessories, the knives and sword. It would not be a problem as long as you find detailed video tutorial online.
Then do the armor on his left arm, another significant detail of his cool look. This could be done in many ways, sculpting the piece and making a fiberglass or resin copy, out of crack foam, etc.
The last step is to distress the costume for a hard effect. Well, these tips are all on the first phase of making the costume! But it can be predicted that the finished look will be somehow a real return of Assassin’s Creed Altair.
All in all, for Assassin’s Creed Altair costume, the fabric choice plays a big role in achieving a good result. If you really worry the budget, blend leather and faux leather for the leather-should part. Some hard textures like linen, canvas and leathers like pig suede are more likely to vividly express that feel of the original look. Wish you a full enjoyment in exploring fun with Assassin’s Creed Altair cosplay!
