These struck me as a great way to make an anime using old drawings to illustrate how to dress for battle.

How many hours separate the first stage from the last one? :)

And he has not even put on his kabuto yet! :clap:

 

In those days they had helpers, perhaps ashigaru, which would have cut down on time, and repeating the process of dressing for battle would have further shortened the process.

 

For teppo displays today we usually have a minumum of 90 minutes to load the guns and get our full Tosei gusoku kit on. I have been doing this for 15 years. Some members like to ask each other for help in donning or tying certain pieces of armour,  :thumbsup:   but others refuse any help. :phew:   

Gradually you learn shortcuts and improvisation.

Piers, the final image is missing, he eventually would have ended up riding a horse as o-yoroi (as you know) were not meant for walking around in.

Indeed, the mongol scrolls confirm this appearance.

Does anyone have some info on the prints, who made them and when, title of the series if any etc? The "Tanki Yoriaku Hi Ko Ben" (Samurai armor and equipment manual), written by Hayakawa Kyuukei, 1735, translation by Matt Garbutt, 1911, shows the individual clothing and armor items in more detail but with black and white line drawings.

 

Here is a link to the whole book.
