ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
This is really nice work. I can’t believe how polished it looks considering its humble components.
Also, does anyone know what those rings on the staff are used for?
To catch your opponents weapons and to give off sound to better know where the tip is.
I always love how there are always a hundred ideas for great costume designs – all put out when it’s way to late to actually make any of them in time for Halloween
This is incredible. Just more proof that it’s not the materials it’s the craftsman. I wonder how he did the knobs, and where he got the grommets from?
This is such a sweet costume. I’d love to see kids faces if a giant f’n samurai opened the door to give them candy…
The ‘knobs’ look like rubber stoppers for Erlenmeyer flasks, the kind you’d find in any laboratory. About a #6, I’d say.
Wow, fantastic! Except for the footwear, which makes me wonder what samurai wore on their feet.
For anyone interested, “Kudzutech” is a gent by the name of Dave Johnson. He is a notable comic book and commercial illustrator, although his comic book output is mostly just covers these days.
No, I do not work for him, just a fan.
Here’s his personal website:

They typically wore sandals — a half-sandal with no heel — or bearskin boots tied onto the foot, kind of like an ankle-high moccasin.
I know what I’m going to be for Halloween next year!
