A respected teacher of Team 7, Kakashi Hatake from manga series Naruto is as popular as the series namesake. A stylish and equally dangerous ninja, Kakashi is a fun character to cosplay. Following our guide, we can teach you how to pull off his signature look.
We’ll start with the smaller items first like the Wig Short Party Hair and the Kunai Tactical Combat Knife with the Weapon Holder Set. For the base, we suggest a Men’s Kakashi Hatake Costume and a cozy pair of Ninja Shoes with Leg Wrapping Gauze. Add a Cotton Neck Warmer and a Ninja Headband with Naruto Gloves.
Cosplaying Anime characters require a certain level of style. While Kakashi’s look is a bit complicated to recreate, a trip to a local costume shop or some time spent on the internet will make putting this costume together much easier. While some of these pieces are character specific, using regular clothes like a green tactical vest under a black hoodie and black sweats pulled up to the knee, can create a look similar enough to pass for Kakashi’s style.
His hairstyle can be recreated by purchasing a wig or white spray-on hair color. His weapons can be cheaply purchased at a local discount store which would make purchasing his logo headband and gloves more cost effective. If you’re interested in group cosplay, adding other characters from Team 7 like Naruto Uzumaki, Sasuke Uchiha or Sakura Haruno will also lend some authenticity to your cosplay team.

As a leader in charge of Team 7, Kakashi Hatake is a respected and popular ninja. Though he was initially portrayed as an apathetic figure, as his character develops, he becomes more laid back. Unfazed by the actions of others and sleepy-eyed in appearance he is a compelling leader and works to keep his team members unified.
With a name meaning, “scarecrow,” they are often used to represent Kakashi. Naruto will at times dress a scarecrow like Kakashi to help him train for a battle between them. Kakashi is loyal to his friends and dedicated to his students. Despite his laid back attitude, he is a worthy opponent when practicing with his students. Before even accepting them as students, he requires that they learn and understand the concept of working as a team. Audiences often praise his character traits which serve to increase his popularity in the series.
