Yoroiden Samurai Troopers/Ronin Warriors
DescriptionMy first foray into crossplay! Seiji/Sage is my favorite character from the show, and I wanted to do something to show it, so I chose his mid-series street clothes, since it was something that could easily be pulled together (even if it is less recognisable than the undergear or armors). Aside from the wig, pretty much the entire outfit is either from my own clothing or thrift store finds. I also made the armor orb prop, which you can see in some of these photos.
AX 2013 was my first convention with this costume. Sadly, no one there knew who I was, nor did it seem like anyone there had ever even heard of Ronin Warriors. It hasn't stopped me from cosplaying this, though; it's since become one of my favorite costumes to wear, and I'm always looking for ways to make it better.
While I couldn't have it at conventions, I'd really like to track down the replica of his sword that supposedly exists, as it would be great for personal photoshoots. I'm also considering making my own convention-safe prop version of it one of these days to help this costume stand out more.
