How to Walk Like a Ninja: An Illustrated Guide (ArtOfManliness.com)

Just in time for Halloween. Now your walk can match your talk!


Walk Like a Ninja 3

With Halloween just around the corner, there’s no better time to learn how to walk silently through the night like a ninja. It’s an incredibly useful skill, allowing you not only to stealthily assassinate your archenemy, but also steal cookies from coworkers, check to see if toddlers are still sleeping without waking them, or sneak across your creaky wood floors to scare the bejeezus out of your roommate.

Inspired by Secrets of the Ninja by Ashida Kim. I stumbled upon this book back when I was in middle school. Definitely a fun read.

DIY Silver Samurai Halloween/Cosplay Costume (Instructables.com)

Thanks to this article over on Instructables.com, you, too can be the Silver Samurai this Halloween! This DIY project does require sewing, but isn’t terribly complicated to assemble otherwise.

******************************
What samurai has two thumbs and uses a mutant power of a tachyon field to surround a sword and slice through virtually anything>? THIS GUY! I needed a costume for the 2012 Chicago Comic Entertainment Expo. I was looking through some old school comic cards for ideas and came across the Silver Samurai. Asian?… Armor?… Samurai?!.. Sounds like a plan!

Pants: (Pic 1)

1. Grab a a pair of pants and outline each leg in  the silver fabric.
2. Just follow the seams from your original pair of pants in order to get the shape correct.
3. I made two legs and then sewed everything together…(pic 1)
4. Fold the top of the pants (waistline) and sew that closed.
5. Find the middle front of your folded waistline and poke a little hole through.
6. From there, insert a shoe lace so you can make them draw string. (pic 2)

Shirt: (Pic 3)

1. Grab a long sleeve tshirt, and cut out the shape of the body, and then each arm in your silver fabric.
2. Remember to make the body and arms a little bigger, if your silver fabric is not stretchy.
* You can make the sleeves actually quite large if needed

Dickie

1. Grab some fabric and just make a bandana around your neck. you can either choose to sew it closed or tie it.
