If you’re a fan of both Steampunk and Assassin’s Creed, then this cosplay might be perfect for your next Steampunk convention. This article will look at Edward Kenway and how you can best replicate his style.
First of all, who is Edward Kenway? Edward Kenway is a character in the game Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag. He was born in Wales and started out as a British privateer for the Royal Navy before becoming a pirate and a member of the Brotherhood. His piracy started with a longing for riches, but not long after, he struggled with the conflict that arose from piracy and losing his closest friends. He then decided to join the assassins in hunting down the templars in the West Indies. After almost a decade in the West Indies, he returns to Britain, getting married, having a son, and joining the British Brotherhood, eventually becoming the leader.
Edward Kenway was a brave and fairly reckless character who was obsessed with the idea of glory. This need for glory led him to the Navy, piracy, and the Brotherhood. He was good at heart, but many of the assassin’s disagreed with his reckless behaviour and seeking of fame. Although after losing friends in the Brotherhood, he started to change by bettering himself.
Edward starts by wearing an orange crewman outfit while he is a pioneer in the Royal Navy. He then takes the robes of Duncan Walpole who had died, later modifying them with leather, metal bracers, white trousers, black boots, and a red sash that he hung across his waist. When arriving back in Britain, and in his later years, Edward Kenway wore a dark blue noble coat that had a gold lining.
