Exhibit A:

Exhibit B:

Exhibit C:

*Note: Exhibit C is the same design as Exhibit A, except the red outline on front of the hood was removed.

I'm in the process of making Ezio Auditore's costume from Brotherhood. During the making of the game there have been redesigns of the hood. Exhibit B was the earliest, then A was the update, then C is probably going to end up being the final version. I love all three designs, so I'm torn between which design I should use for my costume. I'm kind of leaning toward Exhibit A, though Exhibit B looks cool. Exhibit C might look the most 'realistic' in real life, though - it just looks like it'd be cleaner-looking in real life. Here's a similar design for Exhibit C in that trailer with the extremely realistic CGI:

Let me know what you think. Thanks.

-I know these images are huge. If it bothers anyone reading this, just let me know and I'll replace the photos with links.

I love Ubi and their inconsistent refs!

if/when i get around to AC:B Ezio, i'll be mixing t up a lot between the refs that were given. That hood with the red trim will be a huge pain, but the way things are going, I wont be starting the build until after the game comes out, and most likely, there'll be varants present in that to pick and schoose from too.

Quick note, the ribbing on the tunic, (just before the flowery part) is different from eachother in pic a, and pic b as well! And so are the bracers!

I noticed the ribbing variations as well. Also, the metal pauldron is different - the giant circular button clip is only a half circle in the oldest design. Ezio also wears the leather pauldron in some of the gameplay videos I saw, so I'm guessing the metal pauldron will be an update.

One more thing - the button on his under-shirt is white in the older pictures, metal in the newer designs, and is red for the Xbox avatar.

Oh well, more variation to choose from! I might just make all of the hoods and use snaps to connect it to the tunic. Either way, it'll probably be the last part of the cloth part of the outfit I make because I'm sure by time I get to that part the game will have been released. I just wished they'd make an outfit for Playstation Home avatars so I can have a more detailed reference than the cartoony Xbox Avatars.

By the way, I know for all versions, the inside of Ezio's hood is a red satin material. It looks like the red outline in Exhibit A is can be done by making the hood out of the red satin material, then making the same hood with white cloth and sewing it over the red version. The only difference between the hoods is the front of the white hood is slightly receded, so the red on sticks out like an outline.

Well it looks like they were undecided to the end. The box art has the red favored but the game has the white favored.
