You're right on about Texas weather...lived there all my life. Always told all my northern friends that if you can survive a summer there, you can survive it anywhere, even Africa! Very beautifully crafted costume! I particularly commend the hood...tricky thing about that sucker is getting it to frame the whole head without having to paper clip it to your hair! Well done!
Epic cosplay pic, mate. I must say, I prefer Altair's costume more than Ezio's ... there's an elegance and imposing quality about the simplicity of it. I'm just curious about the daggers and knives and swords ... always interested in where I can get my own made for my own weapon-ecentric costume.
You mind if I use this picture for ideas in my Star Wars KOTOR3 book? An imposing appearance is a pain in the neck to describe, especially until I manage to piece together the assassin/Jedi character I have in mind.
