Samurai armor become strangely cute when they look like Pikachu and Hello Kitty

Strike fear in the hearts of your enemies with these… uhhm, not-so-menacing samurai armor. Canadian cosplayer Andy Smith created these Pikachu and Hello Kitty-themed samurai armor by using easy-to-find items like plastic garbage cans (for the armor plates) and hard hats (for the helmets.) Every inch of each armor contains quirky details of the characters they represent, from the pink bows to the lightning bolt tail. It’s every anime fan/wannabe samurai warrior’s dream costume!

Head on over to Smith’s DeviantArt page to see how he made the ‘kawaii’ outfits.
