Kamen Rider #1 - Kamen Rider


AyaCon 2013




My first attempt at a serious cosplay. It's based on the original appearance of Kamen Rider #1 from the first few episode, though the belt and helmet colours are wrong.

I think the recoloured boots and gloves came out pretty well and the helmet came out better than expected after numerous failed attempts.

Didn't get much opportunity to wear it as it turns out wearing head to toe leather on a warm day is pretty damn grueling.

I'm hoping to rework the belt and chest armour in the future for an overall better and more show accurate look.

THIS IS REALLY REALLY COOL!! WELL DONE!! Also quick note, Kamen Rider V1 DID have a blackish helmet for a few episodes. When shooting on location the prop makers ran out of the right colours so they had to resort the black spray paints they had.
