Interview with Aurelie as: Orena Costume
Assassins Creed Franchise
What interests you about the Assassins Creed franchise?
I love the Animus system and the idea you can change the character you’re playing. I hope to know the present story on the next game Assassin’s Creed Syndicate.
Which Assassins Creed characters do you cosplay?
My first cosplay was Ezio Auditore, in Brotherhood costume.
After it, I made Oksana Razin (the Vanguard) from Assassin’s Creed Revelation multiplayer, Aveline de Grand pré from Assassins Creed 3 Liberation, and Ferreira de Ortega (the rebel) form Assassin’s Creed 4 Black Flag multiplayer.
I just finished Élise de la Serre from Assassin’s Creed Unity, in figurine version.
Now I’m buying all the fabrics for Evie (I’m happy, a costume without a wig for me!!)
Why do/did you Cosplay them/him/her?
I choice the character because I love the design or I’m feeling like him. But Ezio was a little challenge: he was my first man’s cosplay with beard.
What do you think of Assassins Creed Syndicate (game and characters)?
I like the twin assassin, with different fighting style. Evie design is closer the old assassin clothes, Jacob is more furtive in London. Now I hope the story will be good.
How long have you been a cosplayer?
I started my first cosplay for the French convention Japan Expo 2009, in Paris.
Is cosplaying your hobby or profession?
It’s my hobby. My job doesn’t look like it.
How long does it take you to make your costume?
That doesn’t take me the same time . I know Ezio took 200 hours. Aveline was made in 250 hours. But she was my first cosplay with leather clothes. For the other, I didn’t count…
Do you usually achieve the desired outcome for your costume on the first try?
Yes. I don’t have a lot of problem. I spend a lot of time to think about the better technic, and I draw patterns for a lot of pieces before cut leather or fabric.
Do you visit conventions?
Yes. A lot in France. But I was in other country around France too.
Which conventions do you visit?
I visited Japan Expo, Paris Games Week, Toulouse Game Show…. in France
I was already visit Gamescom in Germany 2 times.
Last year, I was at MCM London Comic Con, October, for the final contest Eurocosplay Championship.
I was in Belgium (Made In Asia) and Switzerland (Polymanga).
This year I ‘ll visit Tokyo Game Show!
What are you working on right now?
I’m preparing the Evie cosplay, and working on other projects like Elizabeth Swann, from Pirates of the Caribbean.
Do you cosplay for other things as well?
Yes, Assassin’s Creed cosplays are one part of all my costumes. I made a lot of costumes from video games, but sometime, I work on French comic or film.
