Long story short, I'm working toward a full Darth Maul (Star Wars) costume but didn't have all the clothing done in time for a recent convention.
As I collect kimono and had a formal men's set lying around, I decided to do a loosely-inspired "samurai" version in honor of the fun Star Wars "ukiyo-e" prints I've seen before, where all of the characters are drawn as classical samurai, lords, demons, etc.
-Formal men's kimono
-Formal men's haori jacket
-Qutie Frash (punk brand) hakama pants
-boken practice sword
Other notes: I carved the horns myself, silent characters make for easy crossplaying, and bald caps are really hot to wear all day. >_>
