Riverspoons Custom: 1/6th Scale 47 Ronin "Kai"

Working on a Samurai custom is always a treat, & finally after 2 weeks working on this Project 47 Ronin, It’s officially done! The joy of seeing your finished work as you’ve imagined it right before you start is really fulfilling.

The headsculpt is a modified Headplay Keanu Reeves, I cut out the neck & made a ball joint peg inside to fit the Hot Toys TTM19 Muscle Body. Sculpted the hair & facial hair with Apoxie Sculpt. then repaint the head, & painted the sculpted details with acrylic paint.

All clothing are hand sewn from scratch, even the shoes are made from leather fabric! Choosing the right fabric is really important, took me 3 tries to get the look that I want for the olive green kimono. Since I wanted it to be flowing & not too stiff. The Samurai is made of Die-cast metal, which I purchased from Japan. I modified the handle to match the likeness from the movie.

Enjoy the photos! =D
