Cosplayer The Letter Jay > Costume of Ryu Hayabusa from Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- I guess I should start from the top.
The mask is multiple parts, the hood, the mouth guard and the forehead protector. the hood and mouth guard are made from this stretchy sort of woven looking fabric lined with a Lycra, so that my face didn't show through. Finally the forehead protector is made from 8 oz leather, dyed with a mixture of Pearl and Black ecoflow water based leather dye and hand stitched onto the hood.
The scarf is one layer of that stretchy woven fabric that the mask is made from.
now, the leotard is crafted from Leather look Lycra as the base, but is also utilizing 5 oz leather for the armor plating and belting. it was quite a task to weave it together so that it matched the game design. I needed to put a zipper into the back (Ammie helped me with that part) so that I could actually get into the thing.
The pants are also made from the leather look Lycra with leather panels inset and hand stitched in.
the bracers and greaves are made from 8 oz leather and covered with vinyl and have a vinyl piping stitched in. all of these are dyed and hand stitched.
