Week 2&3: Lucrezia

What have I been up to... Well, as  far as sewing goes, right now all I've done is patch my fiancée's pants (useful), knitted the Shamaness shirt hood (slow) and thought how to start the first Assassin's Creed costume.

The one being Ezio is quite a straight forward copy of the original, but three were "original" designs. First one is for the poisoner, Lucrezia. (yes, I know in the game Lucrezia is one of the bad guys).

Here is my character scetch on her:

Bleh, I really need to get back on drawing more... Anyway, sorry about this image being in B&W, my tablet pen has done a runner and I need to catch it before coloring. I'm taking a few liberties to the actual time period correctness, but I think the game also takes a few liberties, so we can put this on artistic freedom. The color combo for Lucrezia is green/teal and white.

I'm planning on modifying the Butterick pattern B4486 or The Poet Shirt for the shirt. The collars I have to redraw, and maybe do some twinking on the sleeves.

For the corset I ordered the Steampunk Asylum corset pattern from Harlots & angels in Etsy. In the pattern the lacing is in the back, but I'm not sure wether I want it to be there or move it to the front. I drew it to be in the front, but I think I like it better on the back. I still have to think about it. I also have to tweak, lenghten and puzzle out the hem.

I've used the B5265 pattern more than once for making different capes and found it easilly modified, so I'm going to use it again. Like going back to a dear friend.^^

The hood is something I have to puzzle out myself. I know I have the instructions on how to draw a hood pattern somewhere...

What else... Since I am using the rumor that Lucrezia Borgia used to poison (to my knowledge there is no actual historical evidence, just rumors) people by using a poison filled ring, I need to find something suitable. I've seen a few good candidates on etsy.

Lucrezia Borgia
I think I will also get myself a book about Lucrezia Borgia. It's good to get to know the person from whom I am building this fictional character.
