yeah wood and bondo is a good combination for a sword. This one is actually a resin cast that I got from a guy who used to cast Altair stuff on here.
What did you use for the blade of the short sword, I'm making an Altair cosplay of my own. I plan on using wood and Bondo for the hilt but I'd rather not use metal for a convention
might I ask, what's weathering?

weathering is making a costume look like its been used, dirtied up and lived in. For example, since Altair spends a lot of time in the desert his white cloak would probably have some worn spots and dirt. It makes the costume more realistic.
MOST IMPRESSIVE!! one of the best characters out there...such an accurate costume, with good weathering, bravo!
Can you believe I took this pic w/a 2.0mp camera phone?? I love this shot of your costume! I thought the stained blood was a great addition and everything was very well made!
