If you get this question a lot please redirect me - what material did you use for the coat that it moves that way? I've almost figured out the pattern for his pirate captain robes but I'm very hesitant to buy material yet. Any advise?

I indeed get the question a lot, but most of the time for the Connor costume. So I will just awnser this "personally". The particular fabrics I used for these robes are linnen for the blue parts and a white mixture (some synthetic fabric too) for the backside. The white fabric has a rough structure and is very thick, it is actually fabric they use for curtains.

I would advice any fabric that's sturdy, rough textured and thick, they do well.

Ooo yay thank you for taking the time to answer - and so quickly! I'll keep an eye on the upholstery section at the crafts store here. I do also have some leftover white from the last coat I made that may work. Thank you again!

Excellent costume, once again. I have a question, however. What material did you use to make the leather armor bits? Did you use real (thin) leather, or something synthetic? Because it looks sewn.

I actually use all kinds of second hand stuff. But most of the time though, I use leather from old couches.

In this case most (if not all) parts were made from old couch leather (1 a 2 mm). Only the shoulderarmour was made with an old jacket.

Btw, it is indeed sewn, but unlike most people want you to believe, a sewing machine is more than able to sow leather (you just have be a bit more carefull and use a proper leather needle). I remembering sewing my first leather parts with a "denim" needle, it worked, but took some effort. The special leather needles have a cutting edge to cut tiny holes in the leather, which help you sew the stuff together =).

I was using leather upwards of 3 and 4 millimeters, and often multiple layers. :P No way my sewing machine could handle that even with the best needles! How does the thin leather keep its shape? Do you line it with something, or just leave it to fall how it will?

I use several methods to keep it in shape. Sometimes I double up, sometimes I fold edges (which makes it sturdier at the... edges XD) and if I really want to add some strength I back it with plastic (several kinds of thickness). To make it appear that the leather is thicker or bulkier I sometimes use foam (like the edward vest).

So it really depends on the situation =).

I've always wondered to myself why people make the blades too long. They're poking out under your wrist, while they are a prop and not dangerous, that still must be annoying to feel and not have full movement of your hands, not to mention the sorta look tacky. Not trying to offend you as they do look very neat and well done.

Your opinion is appreciated. Thanks for the feedback. I first thought you were talking about the swords.

Anyways, they weren't annoying at all to wear. The only problem that makes them a bit uncomfortable is the fact that the baseplate is pretty much a straigth piece of plastic. I'm going to replace this with a more flexible material so they go around my wrist much easier.

About the length: It's still a game of real life vs concept game art. Sometimes you just measure something and it happens to be to big. In this case I didn't have this problem, but the vambraces just slided down a bit. When they are at the appropiate hight I don't have this problem and they extend to the base of my palm.

Thanks again for the feedback, I love it when peopl actually give some critical notes on my work, keeps me sharp =).

Not much action. The blades are pretty tight, I have to pull them out by hand XD since the baseplate is a bit formed around the arm, the blade is stuck in it's sheet. However esthetics over functionality :p

They look really good. YouTube is full of really good tutorial how to make hidden blade retractable. If you're skilled (and you're I have no doubt about it) you should try to make them working. Especially that later you can use the idea for future hidden blade for next assassin.

Well, I don't plan to change these, I might build some new ones with the system installed. I'll go and try to make an ammnra design hidden blade in the future =). Or atleast a magnet, two tier, non mechanical one.

Good luck with that. Retractable hidden blade will definitely make impression. And you can make some action with the blades like this :)
