Assassin's Creed Connor Women's Costume
With Abstergo working hard to keep its amazing technology a secret from the rest of the world, it continues to push forward with its very likely wicked and domineering plans. Unfortunately, there aren’t many Animus systems available for the rest of us to use, whether in efforts to simply live vicariously through our ancient ancestors or to delve into long-buried historical secrets in an effort to undermine the Templars. For the most part, we here in the office don’t get too involved in the power-grabbing wheeling and dealing of mysterious world-wide secret organizations. (We generally just look forward to casual Fridays, actually.)
But, what we would like is to have an opportunity to use the Animus in order to ensure that our historical looks are as complete as possible. How better to make sure that we’ve got the stitching patterns of early American settlers than to hope into a psychological time machine and chat with the ones who were really there!? Sadly, Abstergo isn’t returning any of our calls and we don’t even have any contact information for the Assassins. Fortunately, we’ve put together our own version. Unfortunately, rather than sending us back, it brings one of them forward. Sort of Bill & Ted meets Abstergo Labs.
Anyway, we’ve got it calibrated for you and in just two shakes, you’ll be able to occupy the look of Ratonhnhaké:ton, far better known as Connor Kenway, all thanks to this Assassin’s Creed Connor Girl costume. We’re not entirely sure what unique differences come from a gal stepping into a person who, according to history, was probably a guy, but we do know that the style is superb. The vivid colors inspired from the varied cultures of an assassin, templar, Native American, and American settler bring a perfect and enthralling outfit including the iconic hooded vest and canvas chest strap. Arm bands with keen décor call on the Native heritage while the secret gauntlet marks you as a blooded assassin. (Hidden blade not included… at least until we can get a hold of the Assassins’ Council!)

I need to start by saying that I feel the costume is high enough quality to justify the price. I had people taking pictures of me they liked it so much. But I feel a good explanation of how to make it look nice is needed. As with almost any costume, this required some maintenance after I took it out of the bag. The cloth parts can handle a thorough ironing on a low setting with some steam. I ended up not using the boot covers at all because of wrinkles, and they don't stay up on their on very well, anyway (safety pin would work, I'm sure). Luckily, if you have some tall brown or black boots (you can usually find some at Target for like $50-60 if you don't), you're golden. I have decently small arms, and the size Small armbands fit me well--stayed up all day. The "leather" bracer, I thought actually looked pretty cool :P The "leather" chest straps took me awhile to figure out how to position, but once I did, they also stayed in place all day. The shorts are STRETCHY (in a good way!). They fit my butt when I measured myself and didn't think they would. The cowl was my least favorite part because I really just looked like a nun in it, but it also looks good draped behind your back, too, which is how I ended up wearing it. I would recommend. P.S. Sorry I don't have a better picture yet.
