Dark and Light Samurai
|Cost :||around £25 for 1st version, £24 for improving, total £49|
|Original purple costume worn at London MCM Expo October 2008, was also worn at Mankai (I can't remember which year) and Japan Expo Paris in 2010.|
I'm finally getting round to redoing this costume into a correct blue version, which I am hoping to make for Manchester MCM Expo/Comic Con July 2015.
So this includes: making a blue cloak that will hopefully look better than my original (it was the first cosplay that I had sewn anything for), redoing the boots in the blue fabric, making blue wristbands and I also decided on redoing the gems, by actually resin casting most of them (as I couldn't find a suitable 30mm shalow dome mold) and using worbla & foam for the yellow backs.
Also worn at Tokonatsu 2015.
