Hi All,
Once again after watching a particularly awesome movie (47 Ronin), my boy asked if I could make him a costume. This time it was samaurai armor fit for a powerful daimyo. Instructables provided the template and duct tape, aluminum wire and cardboard provided the materials. It went faster than I thought once it started coming together and he's now looking forward to wearing it this year to our local Ren Faire. We still need to build the gauntlets and perhaps some cool leggings but I'm happy with the result!

Enjoy!

Nice work! Your boy looks like he's getting right into it already.

We've finally finished the armor after lots of modifications and additions, boy has been working on his routine and overall the effect is pretty convincing for duct tape, cardboard and shoelaces... I'll post some more shots as I get them.

BANZAII!
