Assassin's Creed 3

Been having this worked on for the past 2 weeks now and it's nearing completion. I'm not doing the work since I have no skill sewing at all, I'm having it custom made by a friend who makes costumes. She seemed highly interested when I showed her Connors Assassin outfit since she loves the renaisance times and stuff. Just showing off her work in progress...

This is just a shot of the back before she attached the arm sleeves.



This here is her husband modeling it for her after she had the sleeves attached. She still has trimmings and other details to add to the coat.



And this is a shot of the front, still unfinished.



She will hopefully have it done by this Saturday as there are a few early Costume Parties I'd like to show up to. Oh, she's also making the pants and vest he wears. I'll be doing the props myself. Already got the Hidden Blade made.

So far, I've spent about $100 on fabrics and buttons. She said that the labor won't be over $200 total. So I would say another $100 or so for her labor once she gets done.

Wow that's a lot of money to pt into that, that labor cost is HUGE! I personally wouldn't pay that much for any costume or labor. But that's just me the photos u posted here are not showing on my iPod for some weird reason, or else I would comment on them. Sorry bout that.

Maybe when u post them on ur gallery ill see them for sure

That's roughly 12 hours of labor at $15/ hr. That's a perfectly decent wage for a skilled seamstress in the USA as well as a good estimate of time invested in a costume with that kind of detail.

I agree with Penlowe, for a custom made costume that's an entirely worthy price! The cost of the materials alone tells you that it's made from quality fabric.


It's looking mighty fine!
I will ask, 'cause I have to, are you going to weather it? Costumes like that so incredibly need that extra depth to them to make it look accurate to the game.
