Sorry, but there are no instructions, on how to make this outfit. I basically just made it up as I went. That's why the photos are different from this image. I was changing it as I went, based on my personal skill level.
Looking at this in closer detail I think you can pull this off. It'll be time consuming for sure...but if you use thick enough fabric you won't have to line it. I think you'll spend the most time getting all the materials and cutting them out. The sewing should be pretty straight forward. I KNOW YOU CAN DO IT! I've been wanting to try and make one myself...maybe I'll start getting the materials and we can inspire each other!
I'm picking a thinner fabric for a couple of reasons. If I use thick fabric, its gonna be heavy, and since its gonna be so many layers with the panels and such I don't want it to weight me down. Also, this is gonna be for Halloween, and most of the time its REALLY hot still here during Halloween. So if its thick and heavy...I'm gonna suffocate under the heat of it. I was testing some of the fabric the other day, when I was looking around, and the Sateen bottomweight I wanna use...is light weight, and its just thick enough that it won't be too hot, or too heavy, and give the costume a really nice sleek look to it. XD I'm not gonna use cheap fabric, I'm pretty much gonna go all out on this one. Also, I am going to line it anyway with red on the inside. Not the whole jacket, just the bottom panels and hood, which will still keep it light weight.
<8Y I know, cutting out everything is gonna be the most annoying part BLEH. I dislike that part the most. <8U WHEN I SEE OTHER PEOPLE SEW ITS REALLY MOTIVATING !!! Like when I saw your Avengers dress you did ! I was like " GAH I WANNA SEW !!!! "
Ah yeah you do have a point. I forget how humid and hot is stays in the South (even when it's fall and stuff) So the lightweight fabric would work. Yeah and go all out buy what you like. I've been learning that the quality of a $10-$15 a yard fabric way surpases that of the cheaper stuff and your doing this for you so ENJOY IT!
I'm glad I motivate you because you motivate me. You should post your progress so I'm like "Hell yeah I'm gonna sew!" and I'll do the same for you.....I wanna make an assassin creed outfit too.. I might get that pattern you are using as a base and make my own twist. Hmmmm the possibilities. I need to get materials for my Steampunk Alice first hee hee~
Oh yeah, we're having a huge thunderstorm right now...AND ITS STILL HOT AS HELL!! ITS LIKE FIRE RAIN !!
Yeah I'm gonna slowly buy fabric and such especially when its gonna be on sale, because I get an additional discount on top of the sale price which makes it even cheaper ! Like I'm gonna pick up my white fabric tomorrow, and its Already 50% off and I will get another 20% off that so all n' all my fabric will end up being 70% off WHICH IS REALLY GONNA HELP, since I'm looking at needing about 8 or so YARDS of that stuff. since I'm adding additional things. @_@
Oh I will be posting WIPs and progress shots on FB and possibly on here as well, once I get started on it.
*starts singing* You set fiiirreee to the rain watched burn and you touched your face...or something like that.
Ugh I wish I worked at Joanns just for that reason! I've spent so much money on fabric and patterns even with sales a coupons. I can't wait to see your progress. I'm super excited. I just sae that Hot topic was selling Cosplays and they had a Ezio and Connor and they were $180 and they looked a little cheap. So making it will be so much better and more satisfying. (I'm thinking of making connor's when I get around to it)
<8Y Honestly, the discounts and my super nice co-workers and my handful or awesome regular costumers I see, are really the only reasons I'm still there ! My managers, makes the job almost unbearable. She is so rude,( to her employees AND costumers ) and doesn't know how to do her job. I don't even know why she still has a job, since people call and complain about her all the time. blah blah blah.
Really? Hot Topic? That's hilarious ! I must see if ours are selling them ! I'm curious to see how cheap they look. They probably used a shit ton of polyester cheap fabric to make them, and then charge out the butt. You know there are people out there that WILL pay that price for it, because they can't make they're own. I am very excited to make mine. Honestly, for this costume, I'm sure I'm going to spend about $150.oo for EVERYTHING if not a bit more, but its gonna be quality , and worth the amount of money I'm spending on it. Funny, my cousin Tala ( *SkyPirateWolf ) wants to do a variation of Connor. Obviously, not a replica, but her own design.
Ugh bad managers. Ive had my share of those. But at least you enjoy your co workers and customers. That's how I am at save mart. Luckily the store manager is pretty good but some of the front end managers make me wanna pull my hair out! AND I DON'T GET DISCOUNTS! But it's a job and unfortunatly we have to deal with crappy people in this world just to get money and barely make ends meat. $150 wouldn't be bad....On all my cosplay's / outfits for anime Expo this year I spent well over 200 dollars. maybe closer to 350. And that's for two outfits I made and one lolita(though I did get a wig and petticoat).
Ooooo If Tala does one I wanna see! I love Connor and his grumpy indian face! I'm thinking of doing a cute fem version. I'm already getting some ideas ready too bad I can't draw them out as well as you but I have some rough sketches. I'll start working on that eventually...
XD Yeah, my co-workers are great, they hate my managers as much as I do bawhahaha. I have many many thoughts of decking my managers in the face, simply because she treats our customers like crap. I mean, you treat ME like crap, that's on thing, but you don't treat your customers like crap...with out them, you wouldn't even have a job. WHATS !!?!?! How can you NOT get discounts at Save-Mart !?!? WTH is that crap !?!?!? 8/ Yeah sometimes you can't really complain. At least you have a job.
XD I have a bad feeling I might end up spending more, because I know me, and I know I'm gonna wanna put more stuff with this if I can. If I buy everything slowly, I won't feel so bad with spending so much. hahaha.
Yeah she wants to do Connor. Its hilarious, because her boyfriend, seriously could be a real Connor. He almost looks just like him. Makes me laugh.
I love it. I feel that you need some leather straps somewhere. Not sure where though. Maybe across the shoulder to around the waist. I feel like it would be complete. It looks hella tight right now even without it.
I have a large double braided leather belt that's gonna go around my waist. Im also gonna use some faux leather on the boots when I can find a cheap old pair....aaannnd Imma try and make some faux leather arm pieces to go over the sleeves. There are quite a bit of other accessories I didn't draw for these images.
