Altair Cosplay- current state by fevereon Altair Cosplay- current state by fevereon
for those silly helmet people.

[link] -proof that i made the belt

[link] proof that i made the rest

origin of this fiasco, (found via search on google, since lots of noob accounts kept showing up claiming that i used other peoples crap in my project, and this had to come from somewhere )

Sockpuppet account created and used by Mr. taco, and the -only- communications he's ever given me. [link]
there have been NO private communication as he claimed. My sole email to him wen this broke out was ignored. Mr. taco's mention that that there's no way my belt could be his his [link] (way to go. real mature. :p )

On a final note, please google "blindsquirrel". Mike is a friend of mine (and definitely NOT me) . He joined that forum to try to talk some sense into y'all fools. Couldn't post cuz he was a newboe. We saw the result of THAT on the boards. Par for the course.

now SHOO.

okay, I'm pretty much fed up with trying to scrounge through WIP photos for the gems where everythings in place and where it should be.. here's the best of the latest batch of pics taken (there were about 60 taken with a 10 second camera timer, what a PITA running in front of that thing, missed my mark most of the time . (yes, i still consider this a WIP. the pouch is not made yet, and an embellishment still needs to be added on the sword strap thinger.. apparently "frog" is the proper terminology :p )

Anywhoo, here's the current state of the cosplay... there's a couple little things i still need to finish, namely the bottom part of the shoes., an embellishment on the sword loop, and a sack in the back. Won't be doing them for a good while, cuz I have so much else to do..

We went on a photoshoot to a local park with a local Cosplay Society, and the bottom two photos are a couple of the decent ones. We later weirded out a local restaurant.

Besides carrying spare dagger,s its always a good idea to carry spare bolts as well :p

Amazing, simply amazing, I wish I could own it myself :D
darkerperspective Featured By Owner Oct 4, 2011
If you can prove you made it, then you can do whatever you want with it (your leather work I mean). If push comes to shove, you could always sign each of your pieces on the underside. Just ignore them, people are just sh*ts. Good work on your Revelations so far, my battery on my laptop is running out so that's why I didn't post on the Revelations WIP. :-P

fakenails Featured By Owner May 9, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist can someone say they copy? there are many designs and templates online and one can reference it as we wish ...i dunno what that particular person problem was...stain/dye leather...looks the same...and we can say that we made something even if we take something and modify it to best fit us..PROPS FOR YOU for your work!

It is a shame you've had so much trouble proving these are all creations of yours. It is truly something remarkable. I've never seen Altair done so amazingly. Very, very nice work.

Congrats you is #1 in my book of awesome-ness :) lols
isibane777 Featured By Owner Dec 11, 2009  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
That is just...gorgeous. The most beautifully designed, awe-inspiring, magnificent work of cosplay I have ever seen.

Such craftmanship and fluidity, paired with an appreciation for detail and accuracy make this a work above the rest.

Most of us, most especially me, can only dream of wearing such a honorable tribute to a fantastic game such as Assasin's Creed.

I cannot express fully how this work just took my breath away.

disscordia Featured By Owner Nov 24, 2009  Professional Artisan Crafter
Fantastic work. Not sure what the drama's about but one only has to look at the diversity exhibited in your gallery to ascertain its validity.

I'm curious - did you do any tooling on the bracers or was it all painted on?

You win for most pwnage ever dished out by a costume

the fingers tucked into the glove!

Spent a couple days with my finger tucked in real good, so gotten to a point that you can barely tell itsthere, and I'm very much used to beign able to manipulate ojbects and such w/o painfully jammingthe finger! (except for climbing though, ouch!!)
Latias-gem Featured By Owner Sep 28, 2009
Wow! Climbing must hurt like that..(alredy told me that)
furan-san Featured By Owner Sep 23, 2009  Professional Digital Artist
You have no idea how much I just
love Altair as a character and his
suit...also Ezio is jumping that

The level of detail in this cosplay is
just outstanding. My friend you have
godlike skills.
fevereon Featured By Owner Sep 28, 2009   Artisan Crafter
Much much thanks!

Yeah! Though I hadn't gotten to play AC1 til recently, I really LOVE Altair's design and gear an all that jazz... Ubisoft really hit the nail on the head with that one :)

Really looking forward to the launch of AC2, been tracking new updates daily!..

Seriously, just loving what they've done with Ezio so far :heart:

man How do you do all this... X3 I may want to note you sometime on tips and such. Plus seeing its my first time on deviant (am still a noob on this) I may want to see if you make props for others. but All and all....AWESOME OUTFIT!!!! :DDD
INFZ Featured By Owner Aug 11, 2009  Hobbyist Photographer
Wow IMPRESSIVE cosplay!
DanHowardArt Featured By Owner Aug 1, 2009
What the holy hell is happening here????? Anyone that goes to these cons can see your props , just about any given prop, in some sort of progress....INCLUDING THE LEATHER.

Not one of these idiots has been to any of your attending cons either, else they would have seen the leather evolve slowly from slabs of cowhide to the accessories they are now.

Seriously, if you're going to accuse someone of theft, have all the evidence before throwing around wild accusations and having your internet posse join in with the spam attacks. For every one of you pointing fingerse, there are at least 5 of us who can prove you wrong.
fevereon Featured By Owner Aug 1, 2009   Artisan Crafter
eh, one of them mentioned seing me at Otakon this year- "I saw this clown at Otakon... she was running some artist booth in the artists alley... had I known before I would have personally told her in my Fett costume "99CentTaco does amazing work doesn't he? Looks great!"

I remember him in a boba fett cosplay who came thru the alley at one point, he passed by at a distance, but never stopped at my table, looked at my cosplay gear, or spoke to me. If he did (and was capable of independent thuoght), he'd have probably been the first one to say to that this wasn't his work.

If he did accuse me, i'd ask him to remove his helm and talk to me face to face like a man. This is just stupid.
DanHowardArt Featured By Owner Aug 1, 2009
well talking shit is easier than growing a pair, that's for sure.
lc3 Featured By Owner Aug 1, 2009
Wow, the accusations are NUTS. I could vouch for you personally but I don't think it would change anyone's mind. The only thing I can say is:

If two skilled artists independently make costumes based on the SAME SOURCE MATERIAL, what did you think would happen?!!?

try bothering to LOOK. he already admitted that the things not his work (via pissing on my work, look for the jme1979 account),and begged mods over in your forum thinger to close the thread "before it got ugly".. as though the unfounded pissfest and bashing on me wasn't already ugly enough as it was.

jme1979 Featured By Owner Jul 28, 2009
Nothing more to say.
SHADOBOXXER Featured By Owner Jul 28, 2009  Professional General Artist
You and your buddy ~gilmoreofok are so full of yourselves. After doing extensive research on that BS website that only has about 10 products.

Not to mention that company does not do original work! A big example of this is here

Taco's Product: [link]

another vendor that i was able to find in less then one page: [link]

and that isn't just the only example the next example is a leather bag that is sold on the site that has the EXACT same stitch lines as a

J.Crew Leather messenger bag.

Bootleg Taco Bag:

so these are justa few examples I found on just a few min of research.

so here are a few points I'm trying to make.

One, is that you two OBVIOUSLY work or own that bootleg website and think by attacking the hardworking artist here you can get some attention to your products.

I'm also very sure that your leather products are hand oiled.... by a person in a factory in either Mexico or China that works in a Tannery. In order to make one of hose bags odds are you would have to use almost an entire hide.. and to sell the items at such a cheep price would have to mean that they are made from some kind of PU coated leather, or even some kind of heavily treated Action Leather in order to make it so cheep.

Odds are the FOB on those bags in order to sell them at such a LOW price would be about 20 dollars.

There is no way in hell the people from that site made those by hand at all.

The US Navy "logos" and I loosely call them that, were ordered by/from another vendor from China or maybe a US vendor that is a middle man, to them.... to be used for the keychains on the site. Then there is the fact that another site is selling the exact same emblems only in color, which can be done for an extra fee, that the site you defend so much is selling.

Also if you guys are really that admit about your "Quality" products I'll make sure I get in contact with J.Crew's legal department and have them take a run through of your site.

I also LOVE how you made it sound like you and your friend and a BUNCH of other people noticed Fev's "Art Theft" when the accounts were just made today.

I'm also wondering who the vendor is that you ordered your leathers from?
Was it Wolverine, Tong Hong, Keou Yen, San Fang, Carino?
To DA Admins that read this. If you would like to get in contact with me about this whole thing please do. I'm in the fashion industry and can back up what I've said with the my work exp. Not to mention I SAW Fev working on her costume a few years ago at a con. She was working on parts of it in front of 100's of people, not to mention that I saw the hide in it's stages. Also these two posters are a bit too admit about posting on her page while not reading the rules or reporting a violation. They obviously work on selling these bootleg products and need the page hits so they can rank up higher on Google to pay off their investments that they are selling.... which probably didn't do to well because the J. Crew versions that sell for 500 dollars are of a better quality then these versions of their bags and belts. also they don't even have bracers.
fevereon Featured By Owner Jul 29, 2009   Artisan Crafter
mah, shado, i'm not attacking them, i'm defending MYSELF.

i don't care who makes their stuff. their site looked like a startup anyways. for all we know some of the stuff on there may be placeholders.

for intents and purposes of this debacle, lets leave this regarding facts put forth by both parties. my supporters running with speculaton about their work will only stoop to their level, and having to publically here is bad enough as it is.

why the hell coudn't this guy just COME TO ME instead of this?
SHADOBOXXER Featured By Owner Jul 29, 2009  Professional General Artist
Sorry Fev
fevereon Featured By Owner Jul 29, 2009   Artisan Crafter
nah, its cool shado :)

i do appreciate your support on this nontheless
