In Assassin’s Creed, Shay Cormac was a member of the Templar Order. His costume is similar to others in the video game – long coat, tall boots, and so many straps. Cosplayer Angelus of The Neo Tokyo Project started working on the costume in October of last year. After cutting out the pattern, the cloth portions of the costume required great attention to detail. The shirt and coat are trimmed and sometimes double trimmed with a ton of loops for metal buttons. The fabric also features symbols and patterns that Angelus replicated with silk-screening (see bottom photo). For simpler shapes, you could make a freezer paper stencil to get results.
The gun started life as a bright orange, yellow, and green “Gun Smoke” toy. It’s like a Nerf weapon. Angelus repainted it in black and silver and added leather accents.
Here’s how Angelus created the embossed symbol on the shoulder of the costume in the above picture:
First, a wedge of foam was cut out in the approximate shape. The embossed details are created with puff paint and/or hot glue.
Next, apply contact glue to the underside of a piece of fabric and the surface of the foam wedge.
Glue on the fabric, and use a pencil to go press down around the edges of the embossed pattern to create the shape.
Finally, tuck the excess fabric under, trim and glue, and affix to your costume.
