Kenshin Himura Costume

Rurouni Kenshin – Movie and Anime Version

Dress up as Kenshin

Dress up like Kenshin Himura Kenshin Himura is the meek wandering samurai who turns out to have a dark past as an assassin. The X scar on his cheek is the only evidence of his bloody past as he tries to live a peace-loving life in the present by wielding a reverse-edged blade and protecting the weak.

Kenshin wears pretty much the same thing in the movie. He is played by Takeru Satoh in the movie, and Takeru Satoh does a remarkable job of capturing Kenshin’s personality – even the chibi / funny expressions!

For best friends: Ask your best friend to dress up as Sanosuke Segara!
