Fun as they can be, mash-ups don’t always work. This Pikachu Samurai armor design by Andy Smith, however, is perfect. He’s created Hello Kitty Samurai armor, so he figured why not continue the tradition? He crafted the warrior Pokémon with a mixture of everyday supplies and materials like Wonderflex. The base of the helmet is a hard hat, and it features ears removed from a Pikachu plush, a bedazzled Poké Ball, and the helmet and armor plates were created from plastic garbage cans. Wonderflex came in for the face mask. Smith didn’t leave out any details, and he’ll be wearing the Pikachu Samurai costume for the first time this weekend at Animethon in Edmonton.
