Mashiro Sword

Graffiti yo. V samcham. 'Means noh'


Costume Information

Cost : around 50 because I bought the Hakama, 350 if you include the sword ;)
Time Taken : About 3 hours

Breakdown stolen from my DA I'm afraid.
Jin - moi
Hakama £30 from a martial arts stockists, you can spend hours sewing hakama if you like, I, however, cbatbh.
Yukata - Some thick weave cotton that was ok irl but way to shiny in pic's for some reason. Must remember this for the future. Detailing done in white cotton.
Accessories - Straw sandles, karate belt, blue bead bracelet and £300 Mashiro sword.

I Want to do another photoshoot sometime with this group only with someone else in my Jin costume. He's girly lookin' but I'm just too girly and I feel it lets my costume down. If anyone's up for doing it and looks suitably pointy chinned with NO HIPS then let me know ;)

Omg, my friend just got me into this series (I'm so late), she says I'm gangsta, I'll like it LOL!! You look perfect for this - not too girly at all! A pretty boy in fact. :) Also definitely go for Noodle!! You are too hard on yourself - I'm much too fat for 2D!! xx

Very nice! Did you make the sword yourself? I'm thinking of doing Jin and I could really use the measurements for his sword.
