AC3 Connor Vambraces and Hidden Blade by Trujin AC3 Connor Vambraces and Hidden Blade by Trujin
So here are some WIP pictures of my vambraces and hidden blade. Please note they are not done yet.

Vambrace pictures:

Not something I'm very happy with, for some reason it just seems off for me (and I'm not only talking about a slightly to large emblem). However I do like the leather I used, it was allready worn down to give it a more weathered look.

Hidden blade:

I did some research on it this week and came up with this work on progress. It's actually still missing an eagle head as third layer. It should be located betweed the knife-end-tip and the handle. I'm pretty pleased with the blade itself, the handle part not so much.

Cuff (white vambrace XD):

I noticed to many people having really sloppy cuffs. They tend to be very loose and don't look much to the reference. That's why I decided to make a solid vambrace of it.

I allready had some experience with leather lining so that wasn't the hardest part. Hardest was probably figuring out the "right" way to make the buttonholes and connecting the cilinder together (I used my sowingmachine very creative for this problem to tackle).

Anyways, it is being kept in shape with two layers of leather (not counting the lining) which works pretty well in my opinion =).

Haha, thanks but sorry no. However, I'm sure that you can get Ammnra's blade or maybe in the near future one of Fev's =).

This version is actually just a cheap-ass sanded down piece of mdf I saw into the right dimensions.

Thanks a lot =). I used MDF (wood) and plexiglass for this little project. However I might switch to something else. the wood is too brittle and the plastic is too hard to work with XD.

Local sowing store, but these are temporary since I've only got eight of them (I actually took them from my coat to see how they worked on the vambrace, hence the wip part. They were originally for my ACII costume but ended up at my ACB and Connor's too, way to timetravel :p.
