Assassins Creed Altair Costume

My son is a big fa of the Assassins Creed Game series and had to have a costume for Halloween.  Well you can't go out and buy one in a child size so I had to make one. After looking at the different Assassins Creed characters I decided the Altair would be the easiest to make.  I looked at photos and his action figures and this is what I came up with. Not bad if I do say so myself.

This is how I did it.  I stated with the hood and altered a girls poncho pattern.

Next was the tunic.  I stared with a girls basic dress pattern and altered it (don't tell my son he is wearing a dress).  I added bias tape around the armholes and neckline.

For the underskirt I made a basic waistband and the drafted a pattern based on what I could make from the photos.

A simple red sash.

My husband made the awesome belt from fake leather and binder clasps.  I added red trim around it and a Velcro closure.

He wore a white t-shirt udder the tunic, black pants and black shoes. He had to have lots of weapons with his costume.
