This was originally a question on yahoo answers I posted so I just copied the text from there.

I am black and want to be an assassin from Assassin's creed for halloween. And here is the thing I want it to be something different so I said what if the game took place in Africa. (the black parts.) I am going with the typical Assassins Creed coat, but it will probably be black and white? It has to blend in with the surroundings. Then I had an idea that I should have an African mask with the costume which by the way are hard to find cheap and are usually not wearable. I am looking for a african masks that has a meaning that means something like stealth or hunter. I am probably going with the hidden blades since it's a specialty of the assassins but I want to add some African weapons to it. Weapons that stand out and people are like hey I like your african weapon. So it can't be a simple sword since most civilizations used the sword.


I am currently going to get this http://amzn.to/ZRDZrL hoodie and I am going to get tiger print or any other pattern similar to that one and cover the hoodie with that. That's all I got so far.

The time period I am basing the costume on is the Anglo-Zulu War. This is when England invaded. I believe the 18th century.

(Okay, first off, that's an awesome twist on a costume, I love it!)

If we're leaving off swords, probably the next most recognizable weapon would be a busacca - http://www.busaccagallery.com/userfiles/cache/000/001/083/1083_3845_med.jpg. If I were an assassin, I'd probably make that into a two part weapon, one end turning into the busacca, the other into a simple baton or perhaps concealing a short spear, but forming a cane for walking around with in public.

Knives give you a great variety to work from, as do spearheads (which can usually double as knives). http://www.swordsantiqueweapons.com/images/s006.jpg with the broad, leaf-shaped blades seem appropriate to me, but I'm no expert.
