I've often thought that if there is one cosplay I would like people to remember me by, it would be Kenshin. I identify with him on so many levels, and I always hope that I would be able to inspire others the way he has inspired me.
Here are a couple of snapshots of my Kenshin cosplay from when he was known as Hitokiri Battousai, based on the Trust and Betrayal OVA. It was there that it was explained how Kenshin got his characteristic X-shaped scar, so I wanted to make it look like the first half of the scar had been recently cut and not healed yet.
I wore this to the movie premiere of the Rurouni Kenshin live action movie, which you may read about here:

The Rurouni Kenshin Movie ExperienceSome months ago, a rumor surfaced that they would be showing the Rurouni Kenshin live action movie at our theaters here in the Philippines. After some weeks of torture, we were finally given an official confirmation and screening date! The day they started selling tickets online, I got a bunch for me and my friends, even though it was a couple of months too early, hahah! Nearing the screening date, I received a wonderful surprise from :iconup-ame: UP-AME.org. They invited me to be a guest and cosplay competition judge for Swordplay, a Rurouni Kenshin fan event, and also to the special advanced screening days before the official screening date. I've often thought that if there is one cosplay I would like people to remember me by, it would be Kenshin. I was very honored and touched that they had thought of including me to a day celebrating a series that means so much to me, and a movie I had been looking forward to for ages. My friends and I
It was an unforgettable day for me as a fan of Rurouni Kenshin, and another great memory to add the the many that this series has brought me. <3 And I'm truly touched and honored that I've been getting so many messages from people saying that they couldn't help thinking of me while watching the movie.
