Here's my newest progress in my recreation of Altair's costume from Assassin's Creed: the kidney belt.
The belt is made from three separate pieces of 7/8oz tooling leather, which was dyed and then hand stitched together. The brown pouch and two bottle holsters were made of 4/5oz leather and the two black pouches is a thinner oil tanned leather.
So this is the Turkish armor belt that i've been working on for Anime Boston. i used real leather for the belt and sculpt apoxy for the metal parts.
Due to the time crunch and all the friggin pieces i need to make i had to cut corners so the scrolls in the metal would have been more like the mask in my last post and the leather would have had a bit more detail.
Those are all the "accessories" I made for my Altair costume.
Everything besides the dagger is made out of 2.5mm (~6oz) vegetable tanned tooling leather dyed with oil dye. For the metal pieces I used acrylic paint.
The belt consists of three pieces with rolled edges, which are sewn together using the saddle-stitch. For the decorations on it the same stitch was used. The belt pouch was laced using 2.5mm kangaroo lace which I dyed with a lighter antique dye to get a bigger contrast to the light brown of the bag itself. The sheath is build up by three layers to get the necessary height at the margins.
