Costume Information

Cost : £120
Time Taken : 2 Weeks

I fell in love with Henachi after seeing the series Samurai 7 so decisided i had to make his costume.

I felt guilty for having my G/fs mum make my last costume and knew i would need more made with me new found addiction to cosplay and i had the time off work so i bought a sewing machine and spent 2 weeks learning to sew.

I cant take credit for the whole outfit as she made the brown wrap over waist coat but the rest of it i made my self using a tunic and trouser pattern and modifying them to suit my use.

As for his sword i bought a replica ninja sword from ebay then angel grinded, painted it and modified the hilt to match thew sword of Heihachi

The reaction wasnt great to this costume i most people thought i was a Jedi or Steamboy :( but i still love it..

if anyone is wanting to put on a Samurai 7 group some time just let me know XD
