This utterly stunning Baihu Genji

OK, calling this LED-infused Baihu Genji costume "utterly stunning" is an understatement. It's entirely hand-crafted from EVA foam by the talented Ankit Singh (@babycubez) for VijayCos.

This Genji was 3 months in the making

One of the most impressive features of @babycubez' Genji design is the attention to detail. More than 600 hand-crafted pieces of EVA foam were used to create the scaled texture in the armor.

Ankit Singh was also kind enough to share progress photos of his Baiju Genji build. Choosing foam over fur was a bold choice, but the end product is phenomenal.
