I want to make a Samurai build

The only armor I feel looks samuraiish is this combination

Big hat
Ornstein armor
Ornstein gauntlets
Channeler leggings

No shield

It may not be accurate, but that's what I think is a good representation.

I know it doesn't really look like feudal Japanese, but I've always liked:

No helmet.
Artorias chest.
Shadow gloves.
Shadow leggings.

Looks kinda cool for wielding a katana.

I would go with this:

You've got all your samurai-ish weapons and it's only level 100 incase you want to do something else with it.

I would go with or without the shadow mask, personal preference really.

The only thing I'm worried about is parrying. I'm not to great at it and it's way harder to do with weapons over a shield.

That's not true. Unless you're using a buckler or target shield, every weapon has at -least- the same number of active frames on the parry. And most have a -faster- recovery ; in other words, it's easier to parry with most weapons than most shields.

Closest is

Mask of the mother
Brigand armor
Eastern gauntlets
Waist cloth if the channelers


Yes I like that look. I think even more important tho is your weapons. As long as you use your curved swords people will understand ;)

The combo Ive been going with so far is.

No helmet
Brigand Armor
Leather Gloves
Brigand Trousers
Wolf Ring
Havels Ring

And Ive been using the Uchigatana two handed from the merchant. I must say, without any distinct samurai armor I think this Mitsurugi clone looks great. I'm also getting along rather well without a shield.

Personally, if my memory serves me, the cleric armor looks most like samurai attire.
