The menpo is only held on with laces, but I'm an old sailor so those knots are TIGHT! So far there is no movement or fraying but, to be fair, I only took one shot across the face all weekend. The Mabizashi and Fukigaeshi seem to collect anything other than direct thrusts to the face.

An Onna Bugeisha (lady samurai) somewhere? That me! By MJC
I would like to congradulate for your acheivement! When I saw your handamde armour I was very pleased with your results! Never thought of cosplaying or giving panels or workshops when there's an japanese anime convention? I'm sure you would get many people and grabbing their attention! If you are looking for something special, please visit my Facebook page at:
Take a look at my photo albums and see for yourself! Finally it took a lady to put on samurai armour and hop on a horse for parade and more!
Hope you appreciate it and let me know what you think about it!
Have a good day!
