Presenting the Gratz Industries Dragoncon 2009 Aku and Samurai Jack costumes!

>> Friday, September 11, 2009

More pics of Aku and Samurai Jack to come, including the construction of both costumes, but before we hit the road (again!) tomorrow, we wanted to show off our DragonCon 2009 Masquerade costumes! Gratz Industries won Best Animated Character--a major award for our first entry!

Says Peter David, Masquerade emcee:

To me, best costume was Samurai Jack and Aku, with the former played by a seven year old girl squaring off against her dad who was hidden inside an Aku puppet essentially that stretched fifteen feet high, making it the first properly proportioned SJ/Aku confrontation I’ve ever seen.
Thanks, Peter! He and George Perez were terrific hosts.

And we were thrilled to find this clip on YouTube--Aku (Alan) navigating the escalators at the Marriott! Mwahahahaha!

The eyes of Aku--the Shapeshifting Master of Darkness, the Shogun of Sorrow, the Daimyo of Destruction--are upon you, Marriott! And for those of you who have made it this far and have no idea who Samurai Jack and Aku are, here they are in their original animated forms!
