Boba Fett Samurai = Awesome
Man, I love Japanese takes on Star Wars cosplay. Mostly because I know that Lucas was greatly inspired by Japanese culture when writing the characters. Even the word “Jedi” comes from jidai-geki, Japanese period dramas that Lucas loved. Darth Vader himself is modeled after a feudal lord Date Masamune, right down to his helmet and when Queen Amidala changes her outfits all the time, she’s doing oiro-naoshi, a ceremonial changing of kimonos done at Japanese weddings.

There are more pics on Allen’s facebook, but these ones are done by James Barnett.
