So yeah, Anime Revolution was a blasty blast, soooooooooo many new fantastic people who I now have to try and remember names. Also what I found was so many people asking if I had a Facebook page instead of DA, so now I can officially say that www.facebook.com/Andihandrocos… is now a thing. I do definitely like posting pics on Facebook better but my DA account will still get me pics of stuff that I make in the future. Though probably not as much as I will send to Facebook :P

Pikachu Samurai w/scenery!
I figure I should actually post a pic of me wearing the Pikachu armor. ***Important to note!*** :iconfixinman: is the man who designed and fabricated the Katana, which he has better close up pictures of the Katana here fav.me/d7uxq5d
Also important is the picture was taken by Andy Wang from OTL Productions, go and visit their Facebook page for more awesome pics and videos from other cons! www.facebook.com/OTLProduction…

Aighty, gonna be heading down to Vancouver this weekend for Anime Revolution. Pikachu Samurai will be making its appearance there so if your going, be sure to stop me and say hi!
The armor is packed, everything is ready. This Pikachu Samurai will be marching his way through the convention halls of Animethon 21 this weekend...........oh man the excitement! I honestly have no idea what to expect, much as I did for the Hello Kitty Samurai. That one obviously went quite well but the reaction so far from Pikachu Samurai has been quite uplifting, and I haven't even worn it yet! Well, I have worn it once obviously to make sure everything was in working order. Some minor tweaks were had with some spots of velcro and yellow craft foam with my goal being to keep everything as nice as possible and to make sure the busier areas of the armor when walking have the paint protected. Also needed was a impromptu "fat belt" which is a piece of packing foam wrapped in fabric that goes around my waist seeing as how I am too skinny for the trash can I used (lol)

For anyone reading this that will be there, feel free to wave me down and have a wee chat! I tend to wander most of the time at conventions until a panel or something else comes up, moving around helps to cool me down. For anyone not there trust me when I say there will be pics, not posted by me necessarily, but if I find some really nice ones I will try to get permission to upload them here and give them credit or just favorite ones that I spot on Deviantart.

One last thing before I go, please go and visit Fixinman (Ben Johnson) here on Deviantart, he deserves just as much praise for the swords he has contributed to my armor (that will come late Friday at Animethon) The armor is great, I agree, but his finishing touch is the final step that I feel makes the armor as successful as it can be!
Pikachu Samurai Armor: Back by Andihandro
Pikachu Samurai Armor: Back
A view from the back, as much as I would have liked to make the tail visible from the front, crowded con hallways prove otherwise in those situations, so I kept it streamlined :P

I'm a guy who had the funds available to buy a suit to dress up as Samurai Guy, neat!

THEN, I said to myself "But what if I made a suit of armor myself?" And then a friend joked/dared about making it Hello Kitty themed...and so I said "okay" and yep.
Now of course I had to make another, so now there is a Pikachu Samurai as well!
