View Full Version : What price for Assassin's Creed costume is nice?
11-30-2012, 02:07 AM
These days I have been searching for some Assassin's Creed costumes, but the average price is still too high for me. I used to think $50-80 would be OK. So what price is a common price?

I think the average price of Assassin's Creed is just what you saw. The lowest is around $130. If too low, the quality will not be nice.
Here are some references:
$89-249 at ebay.com
$89-299 at amazon.com
$89-319 at costumecase.com
$89-179 at buycostumes.com
As the Christmas is coming, you may get the chance of super save.

For a nice Assassin's Creed cosplay would be far more expensive than that. Keep in mind that when you're looking at them a large majority of the price is considered by how much materials and detail is invested into them. And with AC cosplays-- they are overall all about intricacies.
On average a common price for an assassin's creed cosplay will probably run you close to $200-300 [or more] just for the full set of the general cosplay.
I actually just ordered an Ezio cosplay myself from EZcosplay for around $169.99, but including a custom size and shipping it ended up rounding me up toward about $220.00 or somewhere around there. This would be considered moderately cheap for an Assassin's Creed cosplay, to which I'm actually wondering how the quality for it will turn out, or if I'm going to end up having to do some modifications to it to make it more accurate. [I'll probably post it when I get it with a review of how well they actually did.]
So yeah. 50-80 dollars would be nice, but it's not altogether a realistic price for what you're asking from a tailor. Just to buy an Assassin's Creed buckle for the sash will run you about fifty bucks at the cheapest. And that's just one little item.

50-80 USD for a good quality costume will only be possible if you make it yourself and have materials at hand. The costumes that are being sold over the web tend to have average fabric parts and very bad "leather" parts.
If you were to get a good quality Assassin costume you are probably better of making some of the fabric parts yourself (which are probably the easiest parts and templates/tutorials are there on the web to help you) and buy most of the "leather" parts on sites for larp items (you still have to alter some stuff, but atleast you would have a base). You can buy the rest of the items (insignia's and stuff like that) from people like Fev.
Re-reading my post I must add I'm not to much of a fan of the costumes that are being sold on the net, as a detail freak I find the detail on those costumes repelling.

When the second game came out, I was charging $200 - 300 for the cloak alone. If you break down the costumes, you'll notice there's LOTS of pieces, which are very time-consuming to make.
The important thing to remember when commissioning someone to make your costume is that you're not just paying for a costume. You're also paying for their time and expertise.
