- I would just make sure when you are done it looks "right". i have seen blue Samurai "ish armour painted green left smerf blue that in NO way looks right. I have also seen leather armour that, for diffrent reasons, dosent look right.
My Retainer and I wear black plastic that has ben painted to "shine it up a bit" but paint chips and such. I have never had anyone stop me from fighting. We even fought at the Japanese batttle last year at Pennsic with no problem.
So I mean to say DONT worry if you are going to do it right!
And if not , well then dont bother doing it......
