My first cosplay since I decided this was a hobby I really wanted to pursue… you can check out my very first attempt here. This character was sort of tossed on me at the time, and then I had barely any experience to go on, plus, no sewing machine, no experience with wigs… nothing. So I watched a few episodes of Naruto Shippuden, and followed up with a lot of brainstorming and conception on the wig and eye piece. For my first attempt on props, I thought I did a decent job.
Cosplay - Cloak, Hitai-ate, pants, top and mesh shirt were all purchased/thrifted. Shoes and shoe covers were a gnarly set up of sandals and shoddily sewn together leg warmers. xD
"I don’t know very much about this character, but he did seem like fun. I don’t think I’ll ever be wearing this guy again, I’ve since destroyed the wig for other cosplays, so who knows. I’d need to make a brand new one. Anyways.. it was a fun first try."
Wig – 2 Piece wig, with a headband/post setup for the ponytail. It wasn’t the most comfortable wig I’ve worn… as a matter of fact, it was the least. I hated wearing this cosplay specifically because of the hair.
Props – I also created a little eye protector from sculpey.
