Need help with my Assassin's Creed II costume

Hello everyone!

I'm making a Ezio costume from Assassin's Creed II for my boyfriend.
I can only work on it for 2 month so I'm trying to find some materials that is easy to work with and doesn't take to much time. I'm quite good at sewing, so the problem is the armours (vambrace and belt). Do you have any suggestions for me what kind of material I shall use for these parts?

Thanks in advance!! =)

I was able to scratch build some bangles with the same large bevels as the AC2 belt buckle and bracer. I used a base, in this case PVC pipe, put a styrene ring around the PVC pipe to guide the height of my bondo when I applied it. Then I just sanded it to shape and I got a really nice bevel.

You could do the same by cutting out the assassin's "A" shape then putting a styrene guide on it, applying bondo etc etc. The fine details can be done with puffy paint oddly enough if you so desire, or apoxie sculpt.

Finally just strap it/glue it to some vinyl or leather with E6000 and you'll be right as rain. I attached some articles that detail some of the things I've been talking about.

Puffy paint detail and bondo/styrene buildup.

As you can see bondo and puffy paint paint very well and can get a good metal effect if you so desire.

Edit: Playing AC3 now and it's bringing me back hardcore to the AC franchise. Loving it!
