    The real Ryu wore Shoyoroll gis only, so, really, you're gonna have to go with that.

    lol it's never too early to plan for halloween, it sucks being that guy who look like he bought the last costume the store had left.

    about $20-30 for the costume

    I have never been so jealous in my life.

    couldn't a bathrobe pretty much do the trick?

    why would you get a BJJ gi? a karate gi would be more accurate and 100000x cheaper

    One thing I have heard from cosplayers is that a judo gi looks a lot less cheap and flimsy. If you're just going with anything, get a bathrobe or a karate gi. If you got money to spare, get a judo gi and try to rip the sleeves off. It would be nice if you bought a beaten, ruined gi from someone, though. After all, you have to ruin it further anyway.
