With a long list of nicknames including Saviour of this World, Noisy Ninja, and The Show Off, Naruto has countless distinguishing qualities and many easily emulated. His trademark spiked bleach blonde hair which can be achieved with a wig or hair dye. A track suit of orange and black over a pair of black socks with the toes cut off will more than represent his style. Fold a length of black cloth for his bandannas and copy his trademark bird emblem with a silver sharpie or chalk for a quick solution.
Three thin lines across each cheek will give you Naruto’s whisker marks, which he received while still in his mother’s womb. Some store bought or hand constructed throwing stars will complete this cosplay. However, for added creativity, consider attaching a fox tail to represent the nine-tailed fox demon trapped inside of Naruto for the protection of the people in his village. For group efforts, include Sakura Haruno, Rock Lee or Jiraiya to represent Naruto en masse. Be sure to look at our featured pics for more ideas. Show us your own style send in your pics!
