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. :)

Outfit:
-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. >_>

Photography and huge amounts of painting assistance provided by :iconstratamander: Thank you so much! :D

Thank you very much! :D It was an easy jump to make to "traditional Japanese version", as if you look at traditional Japanese men's outfits and the Jedi and Sith, the influence is pretty easy to see (Darth Vader's helmet was even modeled after a particular style of Japanese samurai helmet).
