Best Gaara Costume Guide
Gaara is an enemy-turned-good in the widely popular animated series, Naruto, created by Masashi Kishimoto. Gaara was intentionally born as a demon’s host because his father wanted to use him as a weapon to restore their village. However, because of his inability to control the Tailed Beast, his village’s lack of acceptance of him, and his belief that his deceased mother thought of him as a curse, Gaara believed his purpose was to kill enemies. He was a ruthless killer until he met Naruto who gave him a different perspective and helped him turn into a force for good. Get the look of the bad guy turned good guy with this Gaara costume guide.

Gaara Cosplay Costumes
Gaara didn’t grow up to be the person his father wanted him to be. Set up to become a weapon to restore their village, Gaara’s father wanted him to grow up cold and without much human connection. Instead, he grew up to be very warm in his younger years. His father saw this as a weakness that would hold back Gaara in becoming what he was meant to be. So his father made sure that all of his son’s good feelings and niceties become crushed. Gaara is easily recognizable with his red hair and face tattoo. Wear a specific Gaara costume with a ninja headband and ninja shoes and Naruto-lovers will immediately know who you are. Especially if you carry around Gaara’s gourd. That will hit a home-run.
Trained from the first days he could walk to become Sana’s “ultimate weapon,” Gaara was known to be incredibly strong and exceptionally skilled. Not only was he effortlessly killing enemies as a child, but he was also known to excel and set world records for ninja training exams. Everyone knew him as a merciless killer and feared him because of that. A particular bout with Naruto changes this as Gaara tries to redeem himself and his humanity.
His character is said to have been developed to serve as a character foil to Naruto. Creators and fans alike have noted the similar circumstances the two characters were born in and the near opposite ways their lives and personalities have developed coming from these difficult childhoods. These observations give further depth to the role Naruto played in Gaara’s quest to turn his life around and redeem himself from being the evil, ruthless person he was trained to be.
