Xerox Samurai No.8 by The-BenT-One Xerox Samurai No.8 by The-BenT-One
Title - Xerox Samurai
Media - Industrial Cardboard and Garbage Bags
Time - 63 hrs
completed early November, 2009

This was the result of a project for my Intro to Sculpture class. The assignment was to take one material and use another to bind the first material together. One of the options was to make something that could be worn. I then proceeded to make a full scale replica of a suit of japanese samurai armor. I put in far more time than was necessary, but the result is as you see above.

This piece has been accepted to the Functional Art Show art the EckHaus Gallery in Kutztown, PA. [link]

I'm not sure where you can get any off the top of my head, but I know the RPF (Replica Prop Forum) has a lot of amazing resources. They open up to new members a few times a year. I may make a pattern for this in the future if I have the time.
