Assassin’s Creed Ezio Costume

ezio costume 1

Replica Props Forum (RPF) user Athanasios made his first full “serious” costume earlier this year. He cosplayed Ezio Auditore from Assassin’s Creed, and while he liked the costume, the build was rushed. It wasn’t screen accurate. He wanted to create something closer to the costume seen in the video game so he began to work on Ezio 2.0. He started posting progress photos to The RPF in August and is done with the entire costume. It’s clear he poured many hours into he build. The details are all there.

Vambrace 15

Take the vambrace (forearm guard). A photo of the finished vambrace is at the bottom of the post. The pattern is intricate. Athanasios began by drawing patterns on paper and transferred those patterns to four pieces of leather. Two layers of the leather were 3mm thick, and the other two were 2mm. He used a stylus to mark the lines of the symbols on the vambrace and cut the lines with a swivel knife. That part alone took an hour.

He dyed the leather brown and stitched the leather pieces together by hand and then prepared the cloth section of the vambrace. The white designs on the red fabric were stitched by hand and glued to the leather. Once it was assembled, he carefully painted the pattern in the leather silver. I can’t imagine how many hours he must have spent on this portion of the build.
