This armor has been facinating me and 6 months ago I decided to make one for the Sakura Festival 2017 in Copenhagen.
I know You guys only want the real stuff, but this armor is so unlike and give it life and see peoples reaction was gold worth.
Hope You like.

Hi Thomas,
I know this armor well. Not a 100% copy, but your interpretation looks cool in action ;-)

I first encountered Tengu in the hit multiplayer online game, Guild Wars: Factions. The Tengu were a race of upright bird people who warred with the islanders of Cantha before the outset of the game's events. Cool to learn that this is where the developers got the idea!
