Aaaah, I've been neglecting all sewing/knitting projects for a while because christmas rush has been over us at work/school. Plans for new projects has been installed, but not confirmed.
The BIGGEST and BADASS project most likely will be four (4) Assassin's Creed Ezio Auditore styled costumes for Animecon. The cosplayers were given the choice of two costumes:
Ezio Auditore da Firenze / Assassin's Creed II
|Ezio Auditore / Assassin's Creed Brotherhood|
| Of course, all of them could not be Ezio, so we planned to make kind of a Brotherhood crew. Each cosplayer chose which costume they like'd best and then they were allowed to personalize the costume. Things that they were not allowed to change was the white base color, and the shape of the hood ("The hood stays. END OF STORY!"). Also the shape of the original costume they chose will be nearly the same, with little tweaks.|
Right now 3/4 have confirmed and told what changes they want for their costumes. Two have chosen the Assassin's Creed II costume as their starting point, one chose the Brotherhood costume and one has not confirmed yet. We also chose a "character trait" for each cosplayer to go with the changes (hidden blades, sword/daggers, archer and poisoner). I'm planning on asking them to name their representative characters, so I can name the costumes I have to design after them.
I'm not sure if I have time to finish all the costumes, but I'm hoping most of them will be finished (I have two big final exams coming up this spring...).^^''' I'm going to be so busy, but maybe keeping this blog encourages me to go all the way to finish line....
