Description
Always wanted to do a Naruto costume, but not really one of the popular characters. I like the world and the characters the author created, and the main storyline is okay but I only watch the series sporadically because they drag it out so much and stuff it with fillers.

So, I thought that at some point I'd do a costume of one of the jounins or an ANBU or something like that.

Now I've done an older version of Sakura because she's a character I can relate to a bit. After the time skip she's really grown up and has had to work very hard to get where she is now- she's smart, hard-working and a lot stronger than she was before. Not a person I would hate to be.

And since I don't think I look 15 anymore, this is an 'older version' I came up with. No, I'm not very imaginative, so it's not very different from the post time skip outfit, kinda combining her top and skirt into one thing...

Everything except the wig, knives and black shorts I made myself. I used this, and the ANBU costume, to try out a lot of new things, before I start on the costumes I really do want to do well this summer.

I'll probably add some things to this costume later, such as a kunai pouch, and I'm not sure this is how I want the belt to be because it doesn't let the material of the top lie smooth. I've also been working on a weapon for her, and will finish that soon.
