|Time Taken :||July 2009 to 2016|
|I am no longer the 12 year old Naruto fan, but the 17 (update: 20 now, holy shit.) year old Naruto enthusiast.|
Neji Hyuga became a growing project in 2011-2012(and way into 2015!) as I began collecting small things to make my costume with while still creating other costumes at the time. The Jacket was bought but the other accessories were discarded or misplaced over the years.
Contacts probably won't happen. I am way to pussy for that, guys.

Playing Catch-up (Posted 1st December 2015)
Been so long my ninja shoes are infested with dead spiders, just like Neji's social life.
Have to wash the dust off my jacket and make a new pair of pants. Have a plan for the bandages being a glove and a sock. Ain't nobody got time to wrap.
First Move: Jacket (Posted 10th February 2012)
So here's the beef.
The jacket was bought in 2009 along with a pair of pants, nothing else. When it arrived in the mail I was sadly disappointed to find the jacket was much to small and had a length that ended nearly past my knee. After a good test drive I quickly broke it in (It fits now, for some odd reason.) Literally, I broke it. The zipper jammed with no apparent reason and I was stuck in my Neji jacket for 30 minutes until I freed myself (yeah, yeah, laugh it up). The zipper snapped not long after that day, but with no reason to continue the costume I retired him. Now with my handy dandy sewing machine I shortened the length to my waist and fixed the zipper so that it would no longer give me problems in the future. Other things may change in the future, but that's for another time and this is only the first move.
