Shotaro Kaneda


Last Updated: 09-04-2011

This started when I found the jacket online. It's not exact, but it was close enough to kickstart this costume. In a way it COULD be accurate if I was basing it off a certain manga type image. I made a few adjustments to it that made it more to my tastes.

The rest of the costume was easy. The gloves, goggles and boots were from

The pants are custom made from latex and feel great. Sturdy, easy to move in and won't tear.

The laser rifle was made from pieces of plywood, balsawood, basswood, mailing tube and other assorted bits spray painted black and with a slight gunmetal finish on it. The battery pack can be opened and is hollow inside, and the wire is just a cable wire I plug into a hole I made on the rifle.
