When RPF user Mandi planned her Ezio costume, she wanted to show that it was possible to create a femme take on the character from Assassin’s Creed without showing lots of leg or chest. She spent three months working on the cosplay. It took her a while to decide on the proper materials and colors, but she finally gathered the fabrics and drew the belt insignia by hand. She created her own pattern for the tunic by using a plastic bag and masking tape, and she even sewed it together by hand. She also handpainted the intricate designs onto the skrt and tunic and weathered the fabric.
