#4 will likely show a lot of contrast to the heavy knit black fabrics as well! Adding highlights to darker materials is always easier than darkening up a material.That is a good question TurboCharizard. Some things I will have to buy and they will most likely be hard to weather and come straight black.
For the cowl I am not sure, but it will be handmade from a thick weave black fabric.
The undersuit most likely a zentai suit for now. With things like the arm wraps being custom.
The gloves will be store bought (or thrift store) and black.
The boots. Omg. I never thought I would spend 2 hours shopping for boots online. But I think I've settled on these and adding the couple faux buckles myself.

Now, I think I mislead you guys with photos because no one seems to be siding with my roommate and my color choice. Lol. Let me back up a little.
Part of recreating the game character is capturing the idea of the character that people have in their mind after playing it. With the nightingale the idea is that his clothes are black. Just like when they make an action figure of him he's jet black.

Now the question is which one is cooler?
In person most people have responded the action figure. I agree, but I think if I were to make it jet black it would look too flat. (Turns out how to really make those ridges is wet forming. Make a wooden mold and press the leather into it)
So, what I was hoping for was something darker than the game model, but still had some color or variance to it. That's why our vote has been #4. Remember, the background is the in game model.

Fashion has no time limit.......The boots. Omg. I never thought I would spend 2 hours shopping for boots online.
You could always substitute w/ headlight fluid.......Halfway through cutting the pieces and I'm already losing my elbow grease.
