I found forum postings on just about everything BUT Rurouni Kenshin/ Samurai X for acen…but they’ve a shoot…

Hey cosplayers, I got a question for you

With Arda’s black friday sale coming up. I figured I’d see if I can snag a wig for Kenshin from Rurouni Kenshin during his Battousai …phase.

Would it be better to short wig +long clip ponytail or medium/long wig ?

Im still VERY new to the world of wigs but IM not certain

but these base images give me a sourcework of where to go. Since I’m not doing his old style hair. His more clean cut apple red hair is my goal. forward fringe and a pony tail.

In honor of the Rurouni Kenshin sequel and a manga reboot. My next cosplay shall be a homage to the one sho started it all for me. Shinta Kenshin Himura, the Hitokiri Battousai. Sword drawing manslayer.
Always planned to eventually. What better time than now

"I came for you; I came back home."
"I welcome you, Shinta."

Happy 2013 to all you wonderful people! 

I’m sure that fans are happily watching the movie online now (but please support the movie if it’s released in your regions!) - this is Sato Takeru as Kenshin by Eeni. 

Says Eeni: OMG! Working on this I realized that Sato-san has such lush, “kissable” lips! This painting does them no justice! But in all seriousness, the man really did make a wonderful Kenshin.

And on a final note, I’ll be looking into finding a way to make a few prints of it too!

Takasugi Shinsaku - Takasugi Shinsaku

This is from Watsuki-sensei’s notes. It’s interesting to see how they influenced the creation of the characters from the Rurouni Kenshin universe.
