Cardboard Samurai Armor For Adults Looks Cool, Can Be Defeated By Rain

Untitled-8

If you want authentic Japanese-made samurai armor but aren’t particularly concerned whether the armor will hold up against arrows, swords or even a light drizzle, Showa-Note, have you covered with this adult-size cardboard samurai armor (children’s versions were released last fall).

There are two styles – a black suit of armor, modeled after Date Masamune‘s armor, and a red suit modeled after that worn by Sanada Yukimura. Both styles will cost 2,980 yen (or roughly $28 USD), and go on sale later this month.
