Costume Information

Cost : £50-60ish with tonnes of materials left over for other props
Time Taken : 8-12 hours?

I've been slacking cosplay wise for quite some time to be honest and i wanted to actually have more than 1 costume for Ame.

Given Jak meant i'd be having green hair, me and Lulu Rose have been watching One Piece a lot recently and i've always liked Zoro (did a fail Enie's Lobby one back at Ame06 with a few other friends), i figured this was the perfect time to redo it, but went for the Skypiea version as its by far the easiest version of him to quickly throw together due to lack of time.

Also been wanting to mess more with props for a long time and this gave me the opportunity to try making 3 katana - in the end i only had about a week or so to actually build them prior to Ame and had to get a bit of help with the painting and scabbards from Lulu Rose.

I enjoyed wearing it, but theres a lot i want to improve regarding the swords and their scabbards, as a i learnt a lot about ways to improve them during the build.

Personally i think only one of the katana is actually easily salvagable, so i'll be altering and fixing that one up and rebuilding the other two plus new scabbards for either Auchinawa, Minami or Kitacon (given i've heard rumblings of a One Piece group going on there) and probably a different version of Zoro


I've honestly never watched one piece but you look so cool and piratey!
Nice job!

Cheers man - its a good watch as long as you skip all the random filler eps. the uh downside is its currently about 500 episodes long? ^^a

Many things i want to fix sword wise, even if most of them aren't as obvious in the photos as they are in person =P

I'm not half bad with that crappy little camera it seems! I think next run of Zoro we will be greening up your brows slightly :P
