I've been looking into the new Desmond of ACB and couldnt find ref of what the symbol on his shirt/back looks like, his tattoo, and what his wrist blade looks like.
I also am unsure of what his sweater is made of, is it just a regular sweater? or it looks like it could be leather with a red cotton inside.
Anyone have any ideas or better ref? Or a pic with him and his wrist blade?

Thanks for all the help :bigtu:

After playing and beating AC:B I would def say it is a unique cotton hoody. His hidden blade is the same as Ezio's with out a bracer. Here's the Pic

The Eagle on his T-shirt is similar to this, I believe the back is the same as the t shirt. I can't confirm it because after you beat the game you can't exit the animus and I haven't unlocked Desmond in free roam.

The hoodie does look thicker than normal in-game (the hood especially), and kinda leathery too, but it'd probably look bad if you made it out of leather... Maybe nylon or some kind of polyester with a really smooth look?
@32spartan11: That tattoo looks nice, not exactly the same but close enough.
I do have the Desmond skin, I'll try to check for the t-shirt but with the crossbow it might be a bit harder to see the back of the hoodie...

Already done I did it last night, though im working on it to get it exact on the computer I'll post them when I finish them up. They appear to be the same eagle. I only drew one side planning on just making a mirror image to duplicate it. I'm gonna try to add them together for the full design.

Dude you're awesome. I was gonna say the in-game version was different, but looks like you figured it out already... Anyway, I'm still doing a new game to have the desmond skin without crossbow and take a few pictures, also of Ezio without armor...

EDIT: The back seems to have only the wings, not the whole eagle. The hood seems to have some ventilation holes or something too, close to the zipper... I've also noticed two small rectangles, one on the right shoulder and the other on the left of the hood, which seem to switch between black and white depending on the lighting. Metal brand plates?

I'm trying to get good shots of the bag, but with the camera angle, it's hard to get lower than the shoulders...

Oh yes, and the shoes. From what I've seen they're almost exactly like converse, except they have a U-shaped tip instead of the rubber toe-cap and no logo on the heel. Black laces, white stitching, red eyelets and lower racing stripe. Since I'm such a perfectionnist the rubber cap kinda bothers me, black or not, but the rest is surprisingly easy to make accurate.

I did this on the converse site:
http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y33/wilan22/desmond-converse.png?t=1290641726
Red sharpie on the eyelets, black on the upper stripe, and it's (almost) perfect.

Another thing Im kinda bothered with: Is there any effective way to fake his very short-trimmed hair? Like a not-so-bald cap or something? I've seen a few very short hair wigs, but never THIS short. My hair is pretty long compared to his, and there's no way I'm gonna shave it just for a cosplay...

Ubiworkshop, the people who are bring us the AC comic, are actually releasing both Desmond's t-shirt and hoodie for sale soon. They have pictures of what the t-shirt looks like so far so you can use that for reference. :) You can find the picture on their website here (http://ubiworkshop.myshopify.com/blogs/teamblog/2365682-coming-next-week). Its not 100% accurate and you could argue that the print is bigger on his shirt in game but I think that has to do more with fashion and proportions in real life.

This t-shirt is made from an early concept which was completely cut from the final release of the game. It is not only slightly inaccurate, it is completely so. I just hope they will release a nice accurate hoodie, and not some inaccurate money-maker crap.

The design on that shirt is much purtier than the in game model probably why they used it.

Spartan good job on the tshirt.

Just to let you guys know, this may be made easier for everyone, Ubisoft seems to be gearing up for cosplay related clothing. They just put out the preorder for the shirt (Spartan, you had it almost dead on!) and there is talk about releaseing the brotherhood hoodie as well.

Ha, Gambit I already ordered mine one of each. Effy posted a link a few weeks back before they were being sold.

But an earlier post pointed out that Desmond's in-game model is completely different than the shirt being sold. That t-shirt looks to be from early concept art that ubi released. But it all depends on the references your using. I personally like the design they're selling better. But if you want the exact design used in the game it's not accurate.

Don't get me wrong, I love this design (Although I wouldn't wear it since it doesn't fit my style) and I have nothing against them selling it, but calling it "Desmond's t-shirt" is inaccurate in my opinion. I can't wait to see the hoodie they'll come up with, though. (Speaking of hoodie, I ordered the Harlequin one yesterday. I was disappointed after missing the first Abstergo hoodie, so I couldn't miss this one. Now, if I could get my hands on that Abstergo pen and ID card... I live in the game's city of origin, yet this offer doesn't apply to my country.)

I really like all the variations between concepts, promo, and ingame. It allows for a bit of personalization and nibbling off various sources to ones choosing.


If you wanna be picky, you can't wear the two matching bracers you see in every concept and promo image that Ezio's wearing either..

A professional seamstress took her go at the hoody with help from her son to collect all the reference. I found these at ubi workshop. Just awesome.

What Force said. I've been itching to make myself that hoodie, but the bird.... the bird's been stopping me! I have an IDEA how it's done, but I'll probably be wrong.
That's professional seamstresses for ya.

Quote from the Mom who made it

Athene Jordan | January 13

Hi, I’m Geoff’s mom, Athene. This was not really hard to make,just hard to get details from the game!I did save all the patten pieces,and I can let you know how we did it all,however remember Ubisoft designed the jacket, and they own the design.The hardest part was coming up with the design on the back of the hoodie-couldn’t find it any where in the game with out the backpack(next project/school break…). Tried looking for it under Assassin Creed Brotherhood Concept Art, ACB screenshot, and so on. So I just blew up the part of the design and winged the rest.
I can say that the hood of this alone has 9 outside white pieces, and 3 red lining pieces. The pockets take up most of each side of the front, large items,maps,knifes,and such can fit in either or both sides.Figured Desomd would need/have big pockets for all the stuff he picks up from the bodies. Geoff did the cross hatching with a special double machine needle, and a lot of sewing! The basic hoodie design was taken from a Tee shirt that fit Geoff, and I traced the shape, and drew the different lines/angles of the pieces on that and then added seam allowance. 3 yards of white sweatshirt fabric, 3 yards of red fleece, 4 zippers, and 2 and 1/2 spools of thread, 6 needles, 4 broken…2 hours of design/drafting time, about 10 of sewing time, which Geoff did a good 1/3 ofand $70 for it all,wholesale costs. Next one would take me about 5 to 6 hours.
Thank you so much Ubisoft and everyone for kind words and posts. This was a ton of fun to do. If you need more info, let me know! Or pictures of the patten pieces. I will not sell it to anyone, since it is not mine to sell, but if Ubisoft wants to trade for the next game or two ;), or needs it they can get hold of me or Geoff. David, get on the honor roll and we will talk….

I'm really glad they're working closer with the dev team on accuracy. I was pretty shocked at some of the comments suggesting they be less accurate to the hoodie (removing the eagle or replacing it with the Assassin logo, replacing the zipper with a beak, etc). I sure hope they don't do any of that stuff unless they make a separate version.

Now if they could just make the backpack. :P

The model this guy is wearing - I don't think it's for sale. His mom made it for him, but you could always ask.

As for the ones Ubisoft is making, it won't be done for months according to what the website's editor Volt said in the comments section.

Thing is, there's no official art out there with the tattoo. What you found is what a girl sketched out what she thought was the tattoo.
Technowraith is just trying to help, as is everyone here. But like I said, since there's no official artwork out there for the tattoo, you'll have to either wait till the encyclopedia comes out with hopes it's in there, or mail Ubisoft and tell them you plan to get the tattoo, or something like that, and who knows? They might provide you with a sketch/pic.
