Aveline's tools of the trade by fevereon Aveline's tools of the trade by fevereon
Something awesome was happening, so I was panicking to get this costume done in time. These were all done in about 2 days, and I didn't get everything done in time. Had about 10 days to get everything finished with a commission in the mix too. Had to just wear what I had (DOH DOH DOH)

Sadly, I don't have any photos of the blowgun, as I had given it to a good home.

notes
Left bracer- 6 oz tooling leather, cut up a jacket to make the strips that are wrapped around it.

Right bracer- I used 3 different types of leather for it. the sleeves (also done on the left bracer) was a thinner oft leather, then the cuff that went over that was made out of a thicker leather, that I also used on the hat, gorget and lapels. The buckled straps was 6 oz. tooling leather. Its the most comfortable bracer I had ever made.

Gun Holster- This was a bit odd, but the mechanism was sitting on my back. Ubisoft Sophia's design team actually has switched the pistol around since, which is an awesome detail fix that I wouldn't have noticed if I hadn't made it. this holster will be remade in reverse. WTG Sophia! :heart:

Sash- I laser cut a stamp and custom stamped the fabric. I'm actually really happy with that, but I think I'll be changing out the patterned one with a silkier material to add textures (the solid red will be linen)

Undertunic- Its made of linen, and a thick linen painting tarp I bought at Harbor Freight Tools. In order to keep the holes from fraying, Its has weight and is quite comfortable!

If i can snag a couple decent photos of the full costume (or at least, what was done so far) , I'll post them on Monday when I'm allowed to. Mine all turned out blurry. stupid camera. Don't expect epic photos (or a finished costume for that matter >< )

Great work, Fev! Bummer you didn't get it all done in time, but what you did get done looks amazing (as always). Can't wait to see the pics - even if they're just hallway shots =P And this secret thing - intrigued!

Post when you're allowed? Would those pictures be from an official photo shoot for something?

Lol, the photos are nothing special, but like, hallways shots. Don't expect anything glorious here. Wasn't even finished, as I had 10 days to finish the thing, and an nda commission that was due during the same time (which had to take precedence)

Will post about it tomorrow
did they scan YOU to put into the game? XD

OH, the nda is unrelated to this thing.

But yeah, was flown out to boston for an ACIII preview media event! It was awesome, though I wish I was able to complete the costume. No epic photos though, but thats fine lol

DUDE CONNOR IS AWESOME!!!! SO IS AVELINE! Did you see her hood option?

Are you aware that the design on the bracer is Erzulie Freda's veve? Is that something you did intentionally? Is that part of the game lore? I'm not very familiar with this particular fandom, but I'm very familiar with Haitian voodoo.

!!!! Awesome! Its actually the design on her bracer in the game, and though I didn't know what the design was, I figured it had some kind of symbolism since it was nothing like the standard AC calipers you see imbedded in the other designs.

Thanks SOOOOO much for the information! Tis a great starting point for further research!

The game takes place in Louisiana during the revolutionary war era, when I think the french and spanish were bickering over it.

Yupper, if that's the time period for the game setting, then does Aveline have an African Diaspora background?

Ohhh. well, they're not going to be any kind of epic photos, there wasn't a shoot beyond the equivalent of like, hallway pics lol. Looking at the photos I took, and dang, nearly every single one came out blurry :\

costume wasn't done either, but I was asked to wear what I have. Will have it done in the next couple weeks though, and trying to learn makeup and mannerisms!

You go to cons, right? I feel like this is kind of a stupid question.
Maybe a better one is, do you go to cons in California?
