Welcome to the 2nd annual Halloween self-portrait. If you didn't catch last year's super saiyan silliness, you can check it out here.
I've had this rice hat for a few years. I'm not exactly sure how it came into my possession, but I just knew it was one day destined to be used in a Raiden costume. My version of Raiden is actually inverted. More accurately, it kind of resembles Sub-Zero wearing Raiden's hat. I bought a cheap ninja outfit and since it's black, I decided to make a white sash thing to drape over me. Yes, I actually did some novice sewing for this costume.
(The real Raiden outfit is a blue sash over a white base).
