How did you make the sandals? I've been trying to figure out the best way to make them, but so far my best idea was several layers of cardboard and then hemp-string. to tie them in place. Any suggestions? Also, how is Spike bending like that?

My brother actually made the sandals. If I remember correctly, the soles are cut from a thick foam tile (possibly layered), and the string is actually some leather cord. not sure what he has looped from the cord to the sole; might be canvas or something, glued down to the sole (maybe sandwiched between layers).

This is me trying to remember from 6-ish years ago, though xD. I do remember, however, that the leather cord actually broke at some point on day 2, so he had to deal with that the rest of the weekend. Hemp might actually be a little stronger.

As for the bending - we actually trained in Tae Kwon Do for several years, so we were pretty flexible back then (there's actually another shot of him dodging my head-high side kick... somewhere). In any case, the shot was well-timed (heck, I could've fallen over right after this was taken, for all I remember).

Awesome! ^^ I've been looking all over a japanese straw hat like Nanashi's, since I'm working on his cosplay as well. Could you tell me where your brother found it?

Thank you.

Cool *o* !! But... does Nanashi's right hand have the sign of "V" - "Victory" O.O ?

It sure looks like it, doesn't it?

I think he had his palm against the end of the hilt, fingers extended, and only the index and middle fingers were visible.

But like that really matters -- VICTORY!
