Over about a year ago I bought an ezio brotherhood costume off of ebay. At the time I didn't have the knowledge that I know now. As soon as I got the costume in the mail overall I liked it but there had to be a lot of upgrades and tweaks. I got everything tailored to fit me better and moved onto the armor parts.

I sculpted the bracers, created a mold, and casted them in fiberglass. I had the mold bent while I had the resing cured for the general shape.

The shoulder pauldron I just used a camping mat and did a general look. The insignia belt buckle was from fev. The leather belts were a little to light at the time.

This year I decided to finally update the pauldron and insignia. I got the insignia buckle from forcebewitya and sculpted the pauldron. The pauldron greeblie was created separately and I just left a blank section to glue it on later.

Updated insignia - It's weathered but apparently the camera flash didn't like it

Final result - belt pouches I had were in the wrong place

I'm happy with the final result. I have to cast another set of
bracers due to wear and tear. Short of a set of con friendly hidden
blades I'm pretty much calling it done.
