Making Ezio’s Hidden Wrist Blades

ezio costume

Even though you can go all out to make a detailed costume replica of Ezio’s outfit from Assassin’s Creed, you can sell it by getting the colors and look of the fabric right and wearing his hidden wrist blades. Instructables user LostRite goes through the basics of making the blades, and the hardware for the weapons only cost about $10. He used drawer sliders, a letter opener for the blades, washers, bolts, and a few other parts. I applaud his resourcefulness. Here’s his first step:

Grab one of the drawer sliders and slide it as far apart as it will go. Measure on your arm about how long you want the casing of the hidden blade to be. (mine is about 7~9 inches, i forget exactly how long).

Grip the slider firmly and saw off the extra slider (the wider part)

You should be able to slide the thinner slider part out of the wider one. Do so. We are going to throw away the thinner part, but first we need to get the other smaller piece attached to it.

Bend down the piece shown in the 3rd picture with a pliers. Carefully (and close to the ground) slide off the piece with the ball bearings. Keep this piece along with the ball bearings.

Clearly, this is the kind of costume accessory you have to be very careful with. I wouldn’t recommend using anything remotely sharp in this build if you’ll be wearing a costume in convention crowds.

As 2022 starts, let’s take some time to share our goals for CircuitPython in 2022. Just like past years (full summary 2019, 2020, and 2021), we’d like everyone in the CircuitPython community to contribute by posting their thoughts to some public place on the Internet. Here are a few ways to post: a video on YouTub, a post on the CircuitPython forum, a blog post on your site, a series of Tweets, a Gist on GitHub. We want to hear from you. When you post, please add #CircuitPython2022 and email circuitpython2022@adafruit.com to let us know about your post so we can blog it up here.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
