Kamen Dancer Kabuto

Post by Lunagel » Sun Apr 04, 2010 11:40 pm

Apparently this guy just started walking down the suburbs of Tokyo dancing....as Kabuto.

Nice find! While it's not the first Kamen Rider dancing vid I've seen (I've only watched Blade+555 and Rising Mighty Kuuga...), it's the first vid I've watched where the Kamen Rider can't dance.

Awesome suit, but uh, Tendou Souji can't dance eh. T_T

It was kool how he attracted all those kids tho in the suit, and being recognized by all those people. I guess cosplaying a Kamen Rider has more of an effect on the general Japanese audience (kids especially) rather than cosplaying an Anime character. Or at least, cosplaying a Kamen Rider attracts a lot of kids.

That's right pedophiles. Kamen Rider cosplaying is the way to go. >_>

The dancers suit was pretty well made, but it kinda looked restricting so maybe that's why he wasn't doing so much.

I wonder if you dressed up as Den-O in some random Japanese suburb would you get the same result or something much different?

The suit looked pretty loose around the legs, so I doubt it was too inhibitive. I think he's just not a great dancer. Or maybe he was trying to mimic Kabuto's subtlety.

You need both to pull off such amazing dance moves though? Maybe we'll see more movement once he shoots his next video.

hey, a friend tell me about this post ^^

So to answer all the question :

1/ yes I am very restricted in my mouvement.. I can't move the top of my body as I want.. the shoulder part of the armor for exemple can't move,.. I have to do some modification on the costume ;-) .. and to be able to move my leg, I had to make the costume larger.. that s why it look like a baggy blue jean ^^;

2/ I had a lot of problem to synchronized the image with the music, when I made the vid.. I can't hear the music on the vid.. and since i was disctubed by poeple ( lot of kids) I didn t dance on the all music haha, only some part of it.. so it was not easy hihi
and made it in complete free style mode, choosing a random music at the last moment..

if you are interested, the next video will be much better, I guess.. no more free style.. and and and, I will do it in Shibuya :-D

BTW, thanks for your comment, it will improve my style ;-)

see you

The costume designers are unforgiving. :P It's amazing the suit actors are able to do so much when their movement is so limited. I congratulate you on your attempt and I look forward to the next one.

XD reminds me of Danny Choo dancing around in a Stormtrooper costume.

Suit itself isn't bad, but the legs are just too loose. Least he customized the belt 8)

You'll attract gangs, even worse a Yakuza.

Yep, one day, we will do a kabuto vs trooper battle dance in Shibuya or somewhere.. maybe next month.. when DAnny cme back from europe..

as for the legs, I know.. I can make it less large then this, but if I do that, I can't even sit on a chair.. so make a dancing video will be impossible ^^


The first video was most a test then other thing.. I wanted to see how I can move on the costume, and what I can and can't do on the suit.. I didn't planned to upload this video on youtube, but a lot of friends living in europe and US, wanted to see the vid! ..so...

Well hope to do better on the next one... I will make a scenario and prepare some dance steps.. but who knows.. when you are in the middle of the street, with everybody looking at you, maybe the free style will take advantage ^^;

Good to know that the dancing wasn't because of the person inside the suit xD

Looking forward to your next Kabuto dancing vid - with a Star Wars crossover! (maybe) =D

How long did it take for the suit to be finished?

ah thats understandable then. Guess you need a lil more freedom to do a dance off then XD

does Danny even still dance around? Haven't really read his blog for a while or seen any new videos.

yes he still dance arround Tokyo.. But more for tv-show, then for him self ^^;
I think he will do something with the trooper armor in London or Paris during his trip..

Hikikomori-san : it did take almost one month to complete the costume, but I didn't made the armor myself.. I do not have the materials for.. ( resin, glass fiber,..) 16kg in total ^^; The one who made it came from Thailand.
I only made some change on the fixation, the interior of the helmet, the "leather" adjustment,...

Know I would like to buy a new belt, with a zecter that make sound.. but a metal one if possible, I do not want one in plastic.. I am looking for, but didn't find it for the moment..


see ya
