Cosplayer Shikarius > Costume of Date Masamune from Sengoku Basara 3
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- So I went a little stupid mode on this costume and I fully intend to make v2 even more stupid. It doesn't look like it, right? We originally intended these costumes for World Cosplay Summit so the devil's in the details. That square pattern on the blue fabric? 60 hours of embroidery. The chainmail that didn't even make it into the final project because I like being able to move my arms? Another 50 hours. Sanding the armor? Let's not talk about that.
I ended up modifying a lightsaber (Date's joke weapon from SB3) and toting that around because my Dragon Claws met an unfortunate end. It might be my favorite part XD
So yeah. Giant trial and error project that I'm crazy excited to redo for real! ...Except dear lord why am I doing this to myself? :D;;;
- Personal Thoughts:
- BURAST AUWWWWF!!!
C'mon, guys. It's the one-eyed Put Ya Guns On Sengoku-era Yakuza boss with a sword guard for an eye patch. It should be a crime to not cosplay this crazy mofo.
