Hi, I'm trying to find out the name of the vendor that was selling the Naruto headbands. I'm trying to find a maroon/dark red headband with the leaf emblem. If anyone can help, I'd appreciate it a lot. :D

Okay....I didn't go to this con but I do know that con webpages love posting their dealers on their webpages....so all you have to do is think back to where they had their table at the con and look at the dealers room map here...

then when you found the number of the table you go to this site and match the number with the name of the vender (scroll down the page for the list)

......once you know the name you can google it or something.

Thanks, that was pretty clever... I was able to isolate the list down to the booth, but the vendor doesn't appear to have a website - so I'm doing some more sleuthing.

But your help really let me narrow the list down... thanks! :D

Yeah, I tried eBay, but most of them are the official ones released by Bandai, and none have the sash color that I'm looking for. Ah well, the hunt makes it more interesting... :D

You can always buy it and dye it. That's what I did with mine. The metal is not harmed by the dye (I tihnk I used Rit or something brand).

Yeah that's a good idea....although if you got a darker color wouldn't you have to bleach it and then dye it.

A group of cosplayers make a really nice looking headband, and engraving is free. I'm sure if u ask them they'll do it with the color fabric u want too. the website is www.project-anime.org.

I just won a custom made one on e-bay. ^^;

They person who was selling lets you choose your own markings, and it didn't have to be Naruto, could be your initials, and ect. The colors for the fabric where brown, navy, and red. ^^; I'm no sure if s/he's doing another auction for it. It went from 15.00 to 38.00 for me. Not mentioning the high cost of the s+h! It was around 10 bucks. They were in a very good condition, here's an example image:

^ I hate shipping and handling...grrr...it's worth it to just buy stuff from a store...although Naruto Headbands aren't in to many stores.

Be sure to come back and tell us about it when you get it... I'd love to hear about the manufacturing quality (smooth metal edges, padding, logo accuracy, etc...)
