Costuming just doesn't seem to get much of the limelight these days. Even as costuming in films continues to get better and better, wardrobes always seem to play second fiddle to CG explosions and fight scenes.

That being said, with a franchise as iconic as Assassin's Creed, it's hard not to notice the outfits. Even back in its earliest outings, the series was instantly recognizable thanks to the distinctive hood-and-robes combo that its protagonists wore into battle. Thankfully, it seems as if the franchise's patented sense of fashion has made the transition to Hollywood: judging from what fans have seen, Ubisoft's upcoming Assassin's Creed adaptation is looking like it'll be pretty faithful to its source material.

As it turns out, Ubisoft wants any fan-made costumes to be just as faithful: the publisher released a "cosplay guide" for Aguilar de Nerha's particular set of robes (that's who Michael Fassbender is playing, in case you were wondering), with the promise of another set of high-res photos coming soon.

It's not a step-by-step guide on how to make the costume, but rather an extremely detailed look at the smaller touches that Ubisoft has made — and "extremely detailed" is putting it lightly. If you ever wondered what sort of beads Aguilar wore, Ubisoft has you covered:

Granted, it's safe to say that only the most dedicated of cosplayers would ever think to get this detailed, but it's nice that Ubisoft even released such high-res photos in the first place. Say what you will about the publisher's games, but Ubisoft has always done a great job of encouraging its community to take on projects like this.

In addition to Aguilar's robes, Ubisoft has promised that a second set of photos — centered around the film's female protagonist, Maria — will make their way online sometime soon. Considering that fans have only ever caught glimpses of her character, the upcoming cosplay guide could end up being the best look at Maria's outfit yet.

Who knew the Assassins were so good with so many different kinds of stitching?

As for the movie itself, there's still a ways to go before Ubisoft's premier video game franchise makes it to the big screen: Assassin's Creed is set to hit theaters on Dec. 21.
