Baki Hanma from Baki the Grappler

Baki Hanma (voiced by Nobunaga Shimazaki and Troy Baker in the 2018 anime) is the protagonist of Baki the Grappler.  Baki trains as a fighter so he can surpass and defeat his father Yuujiro Hanma as vengeance for the death of his mother Emi Akezawa.  Baki has shaggy brown hair and a beauty mark over his lip that resembles Emi’s.  For your costume, you’ll need a pair of red shorts to emulate Baki’s preferred fighting uniform.  While finding an exact match might be difficult, plenty of options exist that are very similar, so choose your favorite.  You’ll also need white hand wraps and athletic tape, and you can use a pair of open-toed grip socks to protect your feet.  Baki is covered in scars from his hard years of training, and you can use scar wax to recreate these.  Depending on how many you decide to wear, you may need extra wax.  Choose a concealer in your skin tone (the one linked comes in many) to conceal the edges.  Finally, use a black eyebrow pencil to add your beauty mark and you’re ready for a fight!
