Halloween 2010 costume. Ezio from Assassins Creed with working hidden blades :)
As typical for my halloween adventures, I only capture pictures in the morning. By nighttime there is way to much fun (like jumping and popping balloons with your blades) to be concerned with taking enough pictures. sorry :( I took a few random pictures and was able to collect several from pictures taken of me.
I made 3 working and wrist mounted hidden blades and chose the best 2 to actually use for halloween. the 'ible for making the blade part (not the mounting, sorry) can be found below:
Everything in this costume except pants and shoes was hand sewn by me. The hood was probably the hardest and worst part made. The cape and skirt-thingy were my favorite (I definitely plan to make Fridays as Cape Days!). Total expenses are estimated to be $70~$80 for the costume and $10 per blade. Also, some fun accessories were added such as 2 throwing knives and a powerful smoke bomb (used on public safety to avoid being chased, this worked to opposite effect).
