Now you can dress like a samurai without any of that bulky metal or leather armor to weigh you down. Yes, this is the first samurai armor I’ve ever seen that says “no glue or scissors required.”
The Kacchu cardboard samurai armor is available in two styles: bright red armor based on famed warrior Sanada Yukimura’s iconic outfit, complete with reindeer horns, or a dark one inspired by Date Masamune’s.
They look really cool, but definitely won’t protect you from much of anything. Heck, your enemy could take you down with a pair of scissors, an X-Acto, or even a Bic lighter.
They’re designed to fit adults from 4′ 11″ to 5′ 10″ tall, and are available for $49 each from Japan Trend Shop. If you happen to live in Japan, they can be had for about ¥2980 (~$28 USD) each. If that’s too rich for your blood, you can always go the Little Caesar’s route.
