Any ideas for a strider Hiryu cosplay?


What is that japanese symbol on his chest?
Does anyone have a nice,clear picture of it?
What has he got on his feet anyway?
I thought it was that slipper-ish thing,but every strider cosplayer I've seen does boots?

My questions are:
Any ideas about the belts/straps on his back?
Any pics of his grappling hook and light sword?
What to use for top and pants?

I PM'ed pictures of the old Marvel vs Capcom Strider Hiryu figurine... I hope it helps since my friend 'Bueno' doesn't have his Strider Island Moralos website completed yet.

It does.Say,are you going to have your Strider done for anime central 2003?

Unfortunately, no... it's too close to JACON and another cosplay project I've got set. :(
However, if you're going to be at Anime Expo or possibly Otakon or AWA, you might see it there.

And say,have you got ANY idea what that japanese symbol on his outfit means?

Second question,what material(s) would you reccomend for his outfit? I have no idea what to use for his sash,but I'm thinking about heavy cotton for his top&pants......

It is a kanji read "Hi." (Pronounced "hee") Considering his name, I suspect that the second character in his name would be "Ryu" as in dragon - giving him the name Flying Dragon.

Wow,thanks alot for the info!
So,it's a "Hi" in kanji?
Also,any ideas on the costume material?
