Assassin’s Creed 1 costume details…Part II – Chest Buckle

I did the chest buckle for my friend’s teen son Assassin’s Creed 1 costume.

Here how I proceeded :


You will need for the chest buckle :

– A metal ruler – Scissors – A Utility knife – A Thick cardboard (3mm or 1/8”) – A cutting mat – A Pen – Something round like a penny – A hole puncher – Metal wire – Plyers – Contractor glue – Glue gun – spray glue – Aluminum foil – Q-tips – 3 metal ring (2cm or 3/4″) – Black paint – A paint brush – A rag or paper towel


° First I draw a triangle with rounds corners (using a button or a penny to do so).

Triangle has 7,75 cm (about 3″ ) sides.

° Then outlined the triangle on the thick cardboard

° Cut 2 times CAREFULLY with the utility knife on the cutting mat with the metal ruler for the sides




° I punched 3 holes at the 3 corners of ONE cardboard triangle with the hole puncher

° With the pliers I folded the metal wire so a loop would stick out of each of the 3 holes




° Try to level the wire on the same plan at the back of the triangle

° Fold the 2 ends of the metal wire inwards


° Put contractor glue inside the triangle were all the wires ends, leaving the loops outside and unglued

° Put the other triangle (without holes) on top of the glue

° Insert the rings into each loops with the helps of long-nose pliers

° Put a weight on top of it and let it dry over night


° Draw the sign of the chest buckle

° Follow the drawing with a hot glue gun to give it a raised design

° Cut a piece of foil slightly bigger than the triangle

° Spray glue OUTSIDE on the dullest side of the foil



° Put the foil sprayed surface towards triangle

° Push every bit of the surface to reveal the raised design made with the hot glue, do it with the Q-tips for the little details.

° Cut all around the triangle leaving just enough to fold it underneath the triangle

° Paint all the surface black

° Folding the paper towel to create a smooth surface, dab the surface just to wipe the paint off the raised part of the design.


° To finish we put vinyl belts through the rings and with a punch we hold in place the belts with decorative nails.
