Hi I'm Ruog

I want to introduce you all my new armor. I've been making it for the last 6 years with my free time.

Is not still finish but it will be soon. I started it because I always like the samurai stuff but i cant afford to by myself an original or even a replica armor. Later, my brain started to think about the idea of making one with cheap but good materials and build it for less than 250 $ and I began to do it.

All the videos are in Spanish ( my mother tongue) but also has english subtitles.Anyway, if you dont understand something or you need help with some issues I'll be glad to answer your questions.

You can find here a small teaser of the final result.

Step 1: How to Start

I've made a lot of blueprints and research on the internet just to be able to begin. In here i condense every idea I've used

How to start

in www.segokudaimyo.com/katchu/katchu you can find and download the patterns.

Step 2: Do

This part was very complicated, and very tricky because of the big amount of shoelaces I had to use, but the results worth it.


Step 3: Haidate

This is still unfinished. I will refresh it when its done.


Step 4: Suneate

Its also unfinished. I have to sew the bias tape,sew the fabric to tie it around my leg.


Step 5: Kote

I have to add some shoelace to attach it to my shoulder and to sew the inner layer to hide the sewing line but for the moment it's ok.

Step 6: Menpo

Apologies for the delay in uploading this part. I was very busy.

Step 7: Kabuto

Here I finally show you the most important part of a Samurai Armor. It differenciates Daimyos or leaders from the rest of the samurais.

Step 8: Stand

Still in development

Step 9: Hitatare

Still in development
