I wanna try to make Altair robes from Assassins Creed by myself. Any advice on that will save a lot of time, effort, nerves, money of mine. and of course, if I succeed, I'll post a pic of me being an assassin lol
If I were you, I'd check out cosplay websites-- I found a forum that seemed to have some good resources and pretty neat-o designs here:http://www.cosplay.com/forumdisplay.php?f=217
This thread in particular seems to have some good links for tips:http://www.cosplay.com/showthread.php?t=259294
For those unfamiliar with the term "cosplay"-- it's where people try to make accurate costumes for characters from their favorite media. There's a HUGE competition at San Diego International Comic Convention
(SDICC) every year... and some impressive costumes that are the result of that competition. I only know about cosplay because I follow an artist/animator, Aimee Major Steinberger
, who is heavily into cosplay and I love her costumes-- she recently did a Rapunzel (from Tangled) costume
that's gorgeous. Her cosplay group has won several awards at SDICC.
While such an event does sound like a geek-fest, it's actually media of all sorts that are covered at the convention-- from famous authors, artists, TV stars, movie stars. They show previews of what's coming out before that information is released to the public. They also have workshops, where you can get tips on writing or drawing. You can get autographs from favorite stars. Yadda Yadda. I went in 2006 and had a lot of fun.
