Strider Hiryu


Last Updated: 02-28-2013


- Top and pants started as a set of baby blue scrubs, died purple.
- Leftover red fabric used for Rufio was used for the belt and mask. More fabric was purchased for the scarf. The kanji on his shirt was hand cut out (hand cutting a kanji, whyyyyyy) and attached using fabric glue.
- Harness is craft foam covered in a brown pleather. Includes a holster on my back for Strider's hook (You can see the handguard just over my left shoulder)
- Belt is made of 6mm craft foam segments, glued to a base belt of foam/pleather made like the harness.
- Arm and leg wraps are muslin (shit's cheap!)
- Wig is a Jett from Arda
- Purple socks and black flip flops. The wraps go around the bottom of the flip flop so it stays flush to the bottom of my foot.
- Sword: Base of PVC pipe, with a plywood strip used as a skeleton for the foamboard blade. Red portion of the blade is poster board, to cover the hot glue seam in the middle of the blade. Spray painted silver, handles wrapped in the brown pleather.
- Hook: It's in the holster on my back (I had made the holster but didn't decide to make the hook until last minute). PVC for the handle, 6mm foam for the handguard (think a pirate's sword), and the hook is made of foamboard. A nut/bolt acts as a hinge for the hook, so it can fold down for the holster.
