Halloween Try-out by Trujin Halloween Try-out by Trujin
After a week of stressing I got something decent out of my workplace. It's still missing a lot of parts (bow for example) and there are details I had to skip to get this done in time.

I think it turned out pretty decent though and I hope you take pleasure in looking at these photo's.

Thanks everyone who made this possible. You guys/girls inspired me, motivated me and kept me running when I was about to throw the sewingmachine out of the window.

Please, don't use any of these pics for sharing, I don't want to turn up at pages where I don't have any control of what will happen to this picture. So, I guess that's a copyrighted by Trujin there.

Photo's were made by my pupils (it was their Halloween party after all) so you might notice I put a black spot in the first pic to hide one of my pupils (wouldn't want anyone to post pictures of me at the Internet without my permission.

People don't seem to visit my scrapbook, so here =p. Amazing hood template by Franky-Bizarro: [link]

Hello! I have to say your costume is really. I am thinking of making a connor costume in the near future and I was wondering how you made the costume have the worn and dirty look to it on the white part of the costume?

Hello and good luck in advance! I've weathered the costume by painting it with acrylic paint. Browns and blacks to add the dirtyness and white to blend them out =).

I respect all the male Cosplayers who are doing their costumes on their own :w00t:
Even if you skiped some details it still looks great keep doing your awesome work ^^

You are a teacher right? I would be proud if I would have a Cosplaying teacher :la:

Ok so....looking closer....Where is the collar attached? To the white vest? or to the coat? :-D Thanks!

Trujin Featured By Owner Mar 30, 2013  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
This is a v ery interesting question. If you look really close at game material you can notice now the collar goes a bit OVER the blue overlap in the front. I tackled this by some really weird handsewing while attaching the collar to the coat.

I could be wrong in this, but I don't think I am (you could better ask this to himself): I think RBF [link] attached it to the vest.

I think both ways can work and both way can look good. I even think that both ways could be historical correct, but you are the expert on that =p.

Haha ok, I can see that this whole construction will take every method in the book! Lots of hand sewing - which of course is historically correct. Its weird to me to be applying historical techniques and finishes to a completely fantasy costume. :-) haha But it's fascinating too.
I think I like your idea of putting it on the coat rather than the vest, but I think you are right that RBF put it on his vest. Booth seem to look equally as good. I've studied his pictures a lot.
Rev War is a weak spot for me, but I'm pretty sure the collars where on the coats and not the waistcoats/vests. And thanks, but I'm hardly an expert. there is so much I don't know! :-)
Just ordered metal jeans buttons - wayyyyy cheaper than actual buttons and will give the look....this looks to be taking about 40 buttons! O.o

buttons where going to cost me about 50 bucks for 50 of 'em.....jeans buttons (the kind you hammer or screw together through denim) I found for 10 bucks for 250 of them out of China....we shall see if they come and if they are what they say they are. :-/ haha

I paid a total of 34 euro for them, probably the most expensive part of the whole Connor costume XD. However these were just the ones that I liked and they sold them in diffrent sizes etc. These specific buttons, without french symbols are hard to come by, so I was happy =).

I'm very excited to see your results!

sounds about the same as what I would have paid USD. (Little unsure of my Euro/USDollar value. haha) But my husband said no way! haha glad I found these - [link] It was an area I felt I could compromise on for cost sake. ;-)

Me too!!! But Ezio comes first. Working on mock-ups of that crazy hood right now. haha

Thanks for the kind words =). If you ever going to start on it, don't hasitate to ask questions.

I should really get mine 100% finished and do some nice shots instead of the poor quality I'm showing off now XD.

And your English isn't bad at all (I didn't notice anything weird =p).

Good luck!

Are you sure you want to help me? XD Because I have a million questions to ask. Connor is my dream cosplay, but to be honest this is the first time I do such complicated things... It would be wonderful if you would help me, then surely I will do this outfit perfectly! :3 Oh, and yesterday I found some time to draw this outfit in female version, but unfortunately it's not finished but soon I'll find some time for that, take a look :) --> [link]

Actually it took me far more than a month. The week I'm refering to was the week that I stressed out to get most of it done. Like the vest and stuff. I think it was about 3 or 4 months in between work and school to get this far.

Thanks =) I actually cheated a little bit on that one. I cutted the pattern out of paper. After that I glued it on my hood point with a glue stick. Last step was weathering the hood and let it dry. After that I pulled the paper off and there it was, the emblem :p.

ah, one more question, may i? *wink*, how do I measure the size of the hood template of our heads? my friend had made ​​the hood, but I think it still does not fit the shape =.= .. here is the preview [link] ...

I want to change it using your template :D

:icontrujin:
Trujin Featured By Owner Nov 30, 2012  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
First off the template isn't mine =p. Next to that, I measured the distance between my eyes and used that to know how wide the eagle point should be, the rest was sized to that too and that was what I printed. Besides that the thing needed some tweaking.
