Behind-the-Scenes: Assassin’s Creed Photoshoot (North End, Boston, MA)

J.M. Aucoin . Costume/Cosplay 1948

This past weekend was PAX East, and I went in my Edward Kenway cosplay. Last year I went sans-costume, but had a gamer costume to show off this year. Was a lot of fun and nice to get to show off the up-graded leather armor I slaved over for months.

Saturday was hanging out at the convention, catching up with old and new friends, and taking lots of pictures with and of people in great costumes. On Sunday, I met up with a few other of my Assassin’s Creed cosplay brethren for a photoshoot at Old North Church and Paul Revere’s House in Boston, MA. Bright and early at 7:45am, no less! But it was a lot of fun. So here’s some behind-the-scenes footage of the shoot. I was hoping to get more video but ran out of room on my iPhone. Note to self: get bigger storage in next upgrade.

Thanks to Joel, Alice, and Darlena for inviting me to be part of the fun and welcoming me into the AC cosplay community with open arms and not a hidden dagger to the spleen. And thanks to Tony for waking up super early to take pics of us being giant nerds.
