Today I got a sakabatou sword from one of my best friends. She had planned to use it for her own Kenshin cosplay originally but the sword is pretty... damaged, derp and I don't even... so she wants a new one and when I told her I will cosplay Kenshin this year and have everything else ready, except the sword, well, I got it. xD It doesn't have the same tsuba and stuff like Kenshin's sword but it is reverse bladed so it's okay. I've been trying to figure out if there is any way to fix the many errors it has but I'm drawing blanks. It seems to be constructed very weirdly (read: not like your usual katana) and it also seems there is no way of taking it apart to reassemble it and check where the faults are. *shrugs* Oh well, it looks decent half-way out of the sheath but if I draw it I will have to check so that it doesn't go major herpaderp.

I'm not sure if I suit him though; it was hard to do happy/cute Kenshin-like expressions, I kept looking like I was about to kill someone
Oh well, here's my first try!
I was lazy doing the base makeup... mostly just focused on eyeliner and the scar.
Also before I put the cosplay on I noticed I had nothing at hand that I could use to make my eyebrows orange. But then I remembered that back when I started cosplaying and did Ichigo Kurosaki from Bleach, who also has orange hair in about the same shade, that I didn't color my eyebrows either, lol. Well, back then I didn't even know you could do that and it looked surprisingly okay. I'm not sure if I should still opt to color them though... any opinions?
Oh, and before I say goodbye for today I must share with you this..
... BONUS PHOTO!
That's all for today.
Stay tuned for a possible Kenshin preview photoshoot during the next few weekends!
