Samurai Jack

Samurai Jack is the protagonist of the Cartoon Network/adult swim cartoon of the same name. He is a samurai thrown into the future by the evil Aku. His fight to get back to the past and defeat Aku spans over fifty years. To get his authentic samurai bun, consider a long black wig and style it to match his.

Kenshin Himura

Kenshin Himura is the protagonist of the classic anime/manga/live action film series Rurouni Kenshin. Kenshin has spent ten years traveling Japan as a rurouni in search of redemption, carrying a sakabatō with the vow to never kill again. Kenshin Himura voiced by Mayo Suzukaze in the original Japanese anime and Richard Cansino in the English dub is a kind-hearted traveler. He is secretly also the swordsman known as Samurai X. He fights for justice, and to protect those that are weak. He does not kill his enemies and therefore either has a wooden sword or reverse blade sword on him at all times. You will need to add a little texture and tease the wig with a comb for extra volume then tie it up in a low ponytail. Create the X scar using special effects makeup and you’re ready for a cosplay event during any season.
