Connor Kenway (Ratonhnhaké:ton)
Assassin's Creed III
Connor Kenway (Ratonhnhaké:ton) is the main protagonist from Assassin's Creed III. A member of the Mohawk Nation, he fights during the Revolutionary war. He, of all the Assassin's Creed heroes, is my favorite.
I created Connor's ensemble with a great deal of trial and error. I drafted different pieces, sewed them together, and then draped it to see if it fit right. If it didn't, I went back to the drawing board. This method taught me a lot about how different shapes come together to make a complete design. Currently, I'm redoing the design to fix some of the flaws I had with the original coat.
The first version of Connor's coat was made using white, cotton twill, blue faux suede and brown moleskin. The leather is vegetable tanned leather, dyed dark brown, and the assassin symbol was hand cast in polyurethane. I hand beaded the armbands using a traditional loom. Connor's leggings are real suede leather and the boots are an authentic set of moccassins.
