Altair is the one of the main characters of the Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed series. This gaming icon has appeared in two Assassin's Creed games and became one of the most recognised characters. Creating an Altair outfit requires an eye for certain materials from the craft store. The outfit itself uses a lot of whites and greys.

Instructions

    Measuring and Cutting

  1. 1

    Measure your height to determine the amount of cotton fabric needed. Start at the base of your neck and bring the tape down to your calves; this will be the number of inches of fabric to cut. Add an extra 36 inches with a width of 32" for the sleeves. Draw a 10 inch circle with a width of 30 inches for the neck hole.

  2. 2

    Cut out the length of fabric you measured your height in and vertically fold it in half. Put your body against the fabric with your arm at rest to determine the length for the arm holes. Mark where your wrist ends and draw a line of 24 inches with the pencil. Cut this out while the fabric is still folded vertically.

  3. 3

    Cut out the neck hole and a 40-inch circular portion at the bottom of the robe, which will create the same appearance of Altair's Middle Eastern attire. Cut a 55-inch-long and 14-inch-wide scarf shape out of the red satin, which will be used to tie around the robe.

    Sewing and Outfitting

  1. 1

    Center the fabric of the sleeves at the fold of the robe's length. Sew the seam with white thread and a needle or a sewing machine. Sew along the underarm of the sleeves leaving an 8-inch-wide open space for your arm to go through.

  2. 2

    Take the hooded jacket and cut off the hood, placing it at the top of the robe to stitch it in. Use the sewing machine or a needle and thread to line it up with the robe, keeping enough head space by using a measuring tape. Sew the pleather material on the left sleeve; this will act as the bracer.

  3. 3

    Slip on the grey shirt, place the robe over it and put the hood over your head. Secure the clothing by adding the red satin cinch and a large leather belt. Put on the leather boots and leather gloves to complete the Altair look.

Tips and warnings

  • Make sure you have the right measurements, this will eliminate any problems when the costume is close to completion. Having old and worn leather boots will make your costume appear more genuine.
  • Do not add any blades to your costume, especially if you are going to a convention or a costume party.
