Cosplay Wednesday – Ninja Gaiden’s Ryu Hayabusa

Cosplay Wednesday - Ninja Gaiden's Ryu Hayabusa
Ryu Hayabusa is back on the scene once again with the re-release Ninja Gaiden III: Razor’s Edge. With his game polished to a shine, it seems fitting that any cosplay of this ninja would need to be of the highest caliber. Thankfully, there is one man worthy of wielding the Dragon Sword.

Cosplay aficionado Dan “DANQUISH” S. has taken his talent for costume making (and extreme fitness) and applied it to Ninja Gaiden’s Ryu Hayabusa. In a photography shoot done by Elysiam Entertainment at DragonCon 2012, the attention-to-detail of both the costume and his physique truly brings this Ninpo-using ninja to life.
