Kabuto Yakushi Cosplay Costumes
Due to his background as an orphan child, Kabuto has no memory of his past. He is a self-proclaimed introvert who doesn’t like attention and very much prefers to stay in the background even though he seems open and approachable. He also gives the impression of confidence, sometimes. When he feels a person is deserving of his attention, he is courteous and polite. But in general, Kabuto can be extremely critical and judgmental of others. Rather than being understanding of their intentions, he likes to highlights the flaws he perceives.
Kabuto’s personality is unique. Fans surmise that this is due to the ever-changing identities and loyalties he must assume because of his life as a spy. Dressed as an intelligent spy, show up with your friends to any cosplay event as a large Naruto group! Invite your Naruto-loving friends so they too can also dress up as Sakura Haruno, Kakashi Hatake, Gaara, Hinata Hyuga, and of course Naruto Uzumaki.
About Kabuto Yakushi
Kabuto Yakushi was orphaned as a child and found by Nono Yakushi on the edge of a city destroyed in battle. Kabuto suffered a head injury that wiped his memory completely, including his name or any fragments of his past. When Nono brought him to the Konoha Orphanage, a fellow orphan named Urushi protected his head with a helmet. The helmet insured his head wouldn’t be injured any longer.
This event prompted Nono to name him “Kabuto,” meaning helmet. On his way to thank Nono in the middle of the night for his new name, he got lost, only to be found by Nono. At this time, Nono also realized that Kabuto had poor eyesight too. She gave him her glasses so that he could see, making Kabuto even more grateful to Nono
