|-About the cosplay-|
Sasori is one of my fave Naruto characters. So he was a defo for cosplaying lol. Cosplaying Sasori influence others I know to cosplay other Akatsuki members til we had a big group. It was great fun while it lasted. Everything of the cosplay is brought. The trousers I already own. The only thing I made was the ankle band things. - This cosplay is now retired as I sort of grown out of the whole Naruto thing and probably won't cosplay Sasori again in the near future.
-About the character-
Sasori or Sasori of the Red Sand is a Missing-nin from Sunagakure and a member of Akatsuki. His partner is Deidara, and he is also the grandchild of Chiyo. When Sasori was young, his father and mother were killed, leaving him with no one but his grandmother, to take care of him. To cheer up Sasori, Chiyo began to teach him the art of making puppets. He began making puppets at the age of five, and even made puppets that resembled his parents to get rid of the terrible loneliness he felt. But because they were only puppets, incapable of giving him the natural parental love he desired, he lost interest in them. Sometime after leaving the village, Sasori kidnapped and murdered the 3rd Kazekage and turning him into a human puppet, soon afterwards Sasori turned himself into a human puppet as well to gain eternal youth and life. The only thing left human of Sasori is his heart. Sasori joined Akatsuki, and was eventually paired with Orochimaru. After Orochimaru left Akatsuki, Sasori was teamed up with Deidara, and carried a grudge against his former partner. Sasori is a master of puppetry and a creator of his own poison to paralyse his opponent's to the point that they're hearts will eventually stop beating. Sasori is also known for his impatience as he noted that doesn't like waiting or keep other people waiting. Sasori mainly uses 3 puppets in battle, Hiruko, 3rd Kazkage and himself, he also has a army of 100 puppets sealed away and release them as a backup plan. As a child, Sasori always seemed sad, due to the lack of parental love. When introduced to the art of puppetry by his grandmother, Chiyo, he grew a little happier. He eventually created puppets with the likeness of his parents, but when the puppets couldn't give him the parental love he desired, he became cold and aloof. This led to him having little regard for human life, and he went so far to state that he would feel nothing if Chiyo died, as he claimed that his heart had become like his puppet body: without any emotions. Despite his cruelty, Sasori also had been shown to possess a very down-to-earth outlook on life, rarely growing worked up over obstacles that came his way. He also rarely showed any extreme emotions.
