View Full Version : Ezio cosplay mix n' match idea. Opinions needed

So I had an idea for a somewhat unique Ezio cosplay involving mixing and matching his attire. I'm unsure if whether it's awesome, lame, or just would make sense to a hardcore AC fan hence making me look stupid.
I wanted to make Ezio's noble outfit but add the auditore cape with a smaller basic leather Spaulder with hidden blades.
Visually I think it works but context wise in game it doesn't really right? It was sort of an Auditore family pride thing as a bases for the idea ( and perhaps I wanted to be a little different...)

As a big fan of the games and the character, I'd be a little O__o *headtilt* if I saw it in person. But on the other hand, it's YOUR costume so do whatever you want!
I'd be a little confused if I saw it like that because I'd just be thinking "Wait, that's not quite right. What's wrong here?" like a niggling feeling in the back of your mind. But if it's done well enough, I'd probably just shrug and be like OKAY YAY EZIO #874562346278 OF THE DAY! XD I spent a lot of Anime North chasing every Ezio I saw to ask for a picture, regardless of male/female/accuracy of the costume. I just recognized a character I love and went HEY WAIT CAN I HAVE YOUR PICTURE/AUTOGRAPH/A HUG?
The thing with mixing and matching, or doing fanart/concept art versions is that people seeing your costume in person at a con don't have that reference material to compare you with. They're going on memory of your character's appearance. So what they'll really be recognizing is the key elements of your costume that tell them who you're dressing up as. They're not going to be able to say "hey that's wrong, it's like thisorthat in the game".

Haha it's ok, this was one of my strange ideas I had at 2am months ago and scrapped. I love AC too so I had thought of this concept for something a bit different . It didn't look right the more I drew it out so I ended up making Federico instead :P
Thanks for you input anyway.

I think it's a neat idea! It's definitely different, but if I saw it, I'd think it was clever.
