Alexander Lam successfully fooled me into believing that the 'Shogun Vader Costume' was made with real samurai armor. Believe it or not, the costume is made of cardboard dipped in jet-black dye and then covered in shiny black poster board. The trim that you see on the armor is a series of oversized shoelaces.

The 'Shogun Vader Costume' is then held together with double-sided tape. Beneath all that homemade armor, Lam is wearing a diving suit. After all, what can be better than a Darth Vader mashup with a samurai? Stats for Cardboard Cosplayers Trending: Older & Chilly
