Yamanaka Ino - Naruto Shippuden


AmeCon 2007




Most of the costume was bought of eBay. =3 I know, shame on me. But hey, it turned out quite nice, me thinks!
There were some problems with the top and the black skirt. I ended up re-making the top, since the one I got was a bit too big and looked awful. And what now looks like a simple short black skirt...used to be a pair of shorts which I cut up and transformed into what they are right now.

A word of advice to all Ino cosplayers out there - WEAR TIGHTS. Why bother you say? Well, they'll stop the fishnet from sliding down. AND they will give your legs an "anime-look". No offence. I'm not saying you don't have nice legs. But if you're taking cosplay seriously...

And last but not least - The Hair.
...was very very painful...Which is why this cosplay is retired. I really like it and all, but a massive clip on pony tail is death o_O So the costume is going in the closet, until my own hair grows long enough XD

Wow! Now that is one awesome Ino. A shame it's retired, cause I never got to see it in person, XD.
