Shang-Chi Xu from Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings

Shang-Chi (played by Simu Liu) is the main character in the Marvel film Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings.  Alongside his friend Katy and his sister Xialing, Shang-Chi must stop an ancient evil from being released by his father, the leader of the Ten Rings organization.  Shang-Chi’s hero uniform consists of a red and black shirt and bo staff made of dragon scales.  To recreate the look of his bo, a wooden staff can be embellished with red tape at the ends to mimic the color of the dragon scales.  If you’d like to imitate the appearance of Shang-Chi wielding the Ten Rings, it can be difficult to find replicas to wear.  However, some generic rubber bracelets can help evoke the same feel, especially if you’re feeling crafty enough to take a little paint to them to make them look more like the weapons from the film.
