View Full Version : Naruto Movie Outfits - Sakura

Today I finished reading the manga of the naruto Snow Princess movie, and I'm in love with Sakura's snow costume! Has anyone else made this outfit? I couldn't find anyone who had.

I put together a bunch of images from the manga, you can see them here: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v684/katringa/sakurasnowoutfit.jpg

On the very right I have my colour swatches: Shirt, dress (I'll make it in red I think), gloves, cape, stripes on cape, inside of cape.

When I first saw this costume, I thought it would be a good chance to made a double-costume: make Sakura's normal dress, then make the second top to go over it. But as you can see in the pictures, the second top is like a vest, while her normal dress has arms (piccy in the bottom-right corner)

So if I were to make them both, I'd have to make the arms on her dress removable. That's probably what I'll do ^^

I LOVE those gloves! x3 I'll probably make them first and wear them all the time :P

I *think* she is just wearing black shoes/boots with those long pink covers overtop.. it's hard to tell.

As for the cape, it looks like the hood is a seperate piece that just lies around the collar. I'm going to need a REALLY LONG silver zipper, or just make the top have zipper-able and the rest open.. *shrugs*

I want to hear your oppinions ^_^ Do you think it sounds like a good idea? Do you like the costume? Have you seen the movie? I'm downloading it right now, it's at 29.1% :D *excited*

If you would like to read the movie, you can do so here: http://groups.msn.com/NarutoMangaReturns/narutoanimanga.msnw ^o^

She actually has two different versions of her normal dress--one with arms and one without. ^^

So you could just make the sleeveless version of her dress and not have to deal with making the arms removable.

I LOVE their movie costumes! Eventually I'm going to make Sakura's as well. ^_^

Ooh!! That's awesome, thanks so much :) That's what I'll do then ^_^

Yaay, I'm glad someone else is making it too :D Can't wait to see! Be sure to post progress pics :3 I will too! Probably won't get much done before Christmas though, sadly x3

Ah, did some searching and just found this piccy:

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v684/katringa/001.gif

That shows the whole costume without cape perfectly ^^ The shows appear to be regular ninja sandals, but I can't see their toes.. Maybe they're wearing blue socks? o.O

Hm.. I just checked and took some screenshots, it looks like they're completely different shoes. o.O Some kind of boot with straps and stuff..

Hm.. the shoes look like they'll be a pain x_X

I don't think I'll be doing the movie version for a while, maybe not even until late spring/summer.. or at least not until I get the costumes (which includes the sleeveless dress I'll be using, so I guess that could count as progress? :p) that I already have planned for this year done. And so far I haven't done too much on any of them. :thumbsup: I'd love to see progess on yours as well! ^^

Darn, you're right, those shoes look evil :P Maybe some slip-on runners spraypainted dark blue, with that painter's tape stuff wrapped around the middle? And then just add on the ankle cuff-esque thingy.

If all else fails, I'll just wear my ninja sandals with socks xD Cause I'm lame like that. I'm usually quite a perfectionist when it comes to cosplaying actually, but I just love naruto sandals x3

Thanks again for the ref pics, I'll add those to my folder :D

You know those little tan-coloured pouches that all the ninjas seem to wear on their backs? http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v137/youtoansweryou/cosplay/sakurasleeveless.jpg Sakura's supposed to have one with her movie costume, but I don't think I'll make it - I think it would look wierd with my cape over top, and would probably make it hard to sit in a chair :P

What do they KEEP in there anyways? The leg pouch is for kunai, are the shuriken in the waste-pouch? I don't think I've ever seen a ninja pulling anything out of there o.O

Adara
12-04-2005, 09:22 PM
Yeah, that's where they have shuriken and scrolls, I think. In the episode where Shikamaru's team is leaving to go find Sasuke, they check their pouches and you can see what Naruto has in his.

I'm sure nobody would notice/care if you didn't have the shoes perfectly right.. I don't really want to make them either XD If you're just wearing the normal Naruto sandals I think it'll look fine. ^_^

katringa
12-04-2005, 09:32 PM
Ah, okay I see ^_^ It's crazy, but this could even be morphed into a 3-in-1 costume - If you make the sleeveless dress into two pieces that attach (at the end of the zipper), you could use it as Time Jump Sakura's top xD That's tempting, cause I love her Time Jump outfit as well :P But only if I can find a nice way to attach the top and bottom without making it too noticeable.. >_> <_< I'll have to think about that one ^_^

Hurray for more movie ninjas ^_^ My friends and I just did an entire Team 7 movie version for this years Nekocon. I have pictures in my gallery under Nekocon 2005 if you want to see us. I'm the Sasuke in the pictures.

Good luck with your costume and can't wait to see it ^_^

Oh, yay! :D I <3 Sakura's movie outfit, as well. The movie was fun, but I think they got some poor, illiterate kid to type up the subs, cos they suck. 'S why I had to download it...

Anyway, I am also (eventually) going to make her movie costume. Prolly after I re-make her timejump one. And make her first one, too.... XD She's my favourite female character- could you tell?

As for the pouch- my friend bought both that tan one, and the leg ones from ebay (or something) for Nekocon '05, and they're great. Very professional. Judging from hers, I don't think it would make your cape look akward, unless you stuck something very bulgy in it. It's a very flat pouch.

Anywho, kudos to you for making it, and I can't wait to see how it comes out!

And I used to be a Sakura-hater, too xD But darn, she gets AWESOME. Took them long enough :P She's definitly my fave chara too now :D

Ahh okay, I may rethink my plans about that pouch ;P Thanks for the info! ^o^

Now, this may seem like a rather stupid question, but what's the best material to make Sakura's dress out of? I always pictured it as red silk-y like, but thats definitly not an option for me :P

I have a truckload of red broadcloth upstairs - I was afraid it would be too thin and not lay down right, but I actually think it might be okay. What did you use?

I'm not sure if I used broadcloth or not, but I can say that it's okay to use. I bought broadcloth for my shoes (which I ran out of time for), and it's very similiar to, if not the same, as the fabric I used. And, yes- silk is probably not the best way to go. It's expensive and not conventional for a ninja XD (However, I WILL be making her cool artbook kimono out of silk!)

If you want, I can tell you what pattern I used. ^_^

And-yeah! Sakura got awesome! :D

katringa
12-04-2005, 10:26 PM
I was actually JUST looking at pictures of somebody who made the artbook-kimono, are you make the one with the arms in pieces that are strung together? It's REALLY pretty :D That'll be beautiful in silk ^o^

Ooh, that would be awesome!! I was just gonna wing it with the pattern xD Thanks so much!! ^_^

NOOOOOOOO DON'T USE SILKY STUFF. :O

Haha, sorry. Every time I've seen someone make Sakura's outfit out of something shiny (i.e. satin), it just.. looks.. no. Bad. There's nothing that shows the material to be shiny at all. Besides, she's a ninja--and how many ninjas have you seen running around in pretty shiny clothes? :p

I'm using broadcloth too. I would have preferred to use a better quality material, but I couldn't find any in an accurate color. And lining it will probably help with the thin-ness. ^^

XD I used to hate Sakura, too!! But now that she can kick butt, I love her. ^_^;

katringa
12-04-2005, 10:55 PM
Hahaha, yes :P Okay, no silk for me ;) Thanks for the warning xD

Yesssss, broadcloth is my friend. I make everything out of it! Almost :P I've got some of that iron-on lining stuff, I'll keep that on hand incase I need it :D

Yeah, she's definitly a great character now, in my oppinion ^o^ She definitly kicked Sasori's butt!! He was scary O.o Ahh, offtopic ;P

Oooh, I love them all! :D I *think* my favourite of all is the last one though, long sleeves just rock and it looks really pretty x3 BUT, if you were going to make the regular akatsuki cloak-thing aswell, then I think the first one would be best :D But as I say, I definitly love all three ^_^

I've planned on making Naruto's cute sleep cap - http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v139/fishaintbitin/reference/sleepingcap.jpg I think it's adorable, and I should be able to make one with a santa hat pattern - I'd just need some dark grey fleece ^^ I would SO sleep with this on if I made it.. it'll probably be wrecked when I wake up though :P

Wheee, so much to do, I don't know what to do first xD Probably make that hat. I also wanna make Naruto's little froggy change-purse.. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v684/katringa/Naruto_c156_p16.jpg ^o^

Anyway, this is getting really off-topic..... o_o *makes a sad attempt at bringing it back on topic*

What fabric do you guys think their cloaks should be made out of? I mean, realistically I know it would be made out of something thick, but summer cons + thick cloaks tend to mix badly.. X.x

Hmmm... well about the cloaks, I was planning of making them with a fairly warm material so I actually COULD wear it out in the snow and be warm :D Then if I wanted to wear the costume to a summer con, I could always just leave the cloak off that day, or wear it at night.. that's my plan I think :P Hopefully the colour won't be too hard to find ^_^

Hehee, don't worry too much about off-topicness, I do want to hear about all the awesome costumes people are making :3

I'm slooowly putting together a list of things I can throw those Uchiha fans onto... socks? gloves? hats?? necklaces? Oooh, earrings, I'm definitly going to make those one day :P I actually have a real FAN that looks almost like it, but the red part has a big black kanji character over it and white swirly things >_> It's pretty nice though :P

Did you get it from that genkigang website? Their hats ROCK!!, but so expensive T_T Omg I want every one of those hats! :P Plus I'm in Canada, so shipping costs even more, gah.

Yesss, fleece is my friend :) So soft and perfect for hats! Also pretty expensive, but my gramma has this membership-card thingy that gets you 40% off, so it ends up being really cheap :P And then I start going crazy and want to buy all the fabric in the store. It's all so temptinggg. Look what cosplay has done to me xDD

If all else fails.. broadcloth!! :D Cheap, versatile, and comes in almost every colour! Frays like CRAZY though, but that's what seams are for anyways :P Good stuff :bigtu:

Edit: I suddenly realized I could have put all those into one post xD But I'm not sure how to quote more than once in a post anyways. I'm more or less new here ^^;

I actually got it from Nekocon, but it's like... a kid's hat. So I have to make one. But, yeah! I love those genkigang hats! I want them, too.

If anyone has an idea of what to use for the Akatsuki cloaks.... Do tell.

lol, I don't know how to quote more than one, either....

For Sakura's regular dress, we already talked a lot about it in this thread (http://forums.cosplay.com/showthread.php?t=67088&page=3) (links to the page where I talked about how I did it).

For the winter outfit...

I already have the fabric and everything for the top and a wig that I need to adjust a bit more.

Soyo and I are going to be doing Sasuke and Sakura together, but we're not sure yet if we're doing the cloaks because of a) money (cloaks take a LOT of fabric) and b) we can't find enough of the fabric we want.

The color for the cloak is a pain because of how it's yellowish-tannish and that's not an easy one to find.

And what's with Sakura's winter color scheme that she has going on? I'm sorry, the shirt does not match with either her hair color or her red dress... It was so painful to buy, lol, cause it's just gonna not match so much. ^^;;

The shoes look to be a nightmare, but I'm thinking of taking boots and painting them blue and adding the straps or something. Provided they're cheap. ^^;; The ninja sandals have already been an enormous pain for her regular outfit, but I think it would look silly to be in the winter outfit and be wearing sandals. ^^;;

For Sakura's regular dress, we already talked a lot about it in this thread (http://forums.cosplay.com/showthread.php?t=67088&page=3) (links to the page where I talked about how I did it).

For the winter outfit...

I already have the fabric and everything for the top and a wig that I need to adjust a bit more.

Soyo and I are going to be doing Sasuke and Sakura together, but we're not sure yet if we're doing the cloaks because of a) money (cloaks take a LOT of fabric) and b) we can't find enough of the fabric we want.

The color for the cloak is a pain because of how it's yellowish-tannish and that's not an easy one to find.

And what's with Sakura's winter color scheme that she has going on? I'm sorry, the shirt does not match with either her hair color or her red dress... It was so painful to buy, lol, cause it's just gonna not match so much. ^^;;

The shoes look to be a nightmare, but I'm thinking of taking boots and painting them blue and adding the straps or something. Provided they're cheap. ^^;; The ninja sandals have already been an enormous pain for her regular outfit, but I think it would look silly to be in the winter outfit and be wearing sandals. ^^;;

Ahh, thanks so much!! That will be very helpful, and GREAT job on the costume btw :D

Gah, her colours are crazy xD Her dress, shirt, hair and gloves are ALL different colours, its insane.

I'm hoping I'll get lucky with being able to find the colours, so far I've had amazing luck (even finding perfect gradients and materials), and the fabric store we have is absolutely HUGE.

I'm taking note of all the pattern suggestions you guys have made, I've never actually used a store-bought pattern to make a costume x3 Thanks to everyone who helped out! *hug*

Cool! Lesse.. I might be coming up to Washington/Cali summer '06, so maybe :D That would be awesome :D

We should have a club. "The Akatsuki Brothel?" o_o ....but that's like, really weird.... "Akawhores"?

What cons are in the west coast in the summer? If we figure it out, we actually *could* have a gathering of Akatsuki whores. I would actually not go to AMA just to save money for it :D

The skirt on the first (and second) sketch has a slit on both sides. Plus, my entire body will be covered in fishnet, so, yeah. My mom would kill me, too. Or call me a hooker. :D

I have and love long nails (real). I hate fake nails. But, you know those manicure stickers you can put on your fingernails? Maybe those would work. In any case, I'll just get my nails professionally done, since I usually get nail polish all over my self.

Yay, update! I just got back from the fabric store, I found the perfect pattern (I ended up getting the McCall's one because they didnt have the one I needed in NewLook) and I can't wait to start :D The only problem is that I'm probably gonna need to shorten it, as I'm VERY short >< Shouldn't be too much of a problem though. ^o^ I think I'll do what somebody else did and just make the zipper go down part of the way, until the bend starts, then use a strip of white for the rest.

Also, I'm thinking of not interfacing the collar on her movie shirt - that way it'll just lie on top of the other one, or snap on? I don't want it to push the other collar into my neck or something :P Owch.

After the dress is done, next step is to get the two pink fabrics, and the fabric for the cloak... *jots down* Hopefully I can find a good pink wig too! I have a pretty one, but it's a bit too short for Sakura I think. Ahhh, it's hard to find sandals this time of year... wish me luck! ^_^

I capped the movie for this specific purpose and you can find them over here: http://amiyuy.livejournal.com/180376.html

I finished my outfit for Anime LA a couple weekends ago and I have some pictures up in my gallery: http://images.cosplay.com/gallery.php?cat=32678&member=1186

I used a salmon pink cotton for the top, white double-fold bias tape for the edging (no hemming, yay!), and the same pattern that I used for the dress, just without any darts at all so that it hung loose.

For the leg and arm warmers I used a sort of medium pink color cotton.

The boots were bought at Payless and painted and then we super glued on snaps (although they're not very snapable because they come off pretty easily if you snap and unsnap them) to hold on the wraps.

Next comes the cloak...which we were going to do but the colors and right fabric were not very forthcoming in searching for them...

I used McCall's M4369 and it's perfect :D Inside it has patterns for both a sleeveless and a sleeved version ^_^

Just make sure when you sew it, you leave BOTH sides of the dress open, because the pattern just has one open ;P But that's kind of obvious xD;

Also, I modified the collar pattern a little bit so that it curves into the zipper more. I would have liked to make a bigger collar-space so it looks like Sakura's, but I thought about that too late and couldn't take out the zipper. So the collar's a bit closer to my neck than it should be, but it's still comfy atleast :)

As for switching the zipper to the front, I just cut the back AND front pieces of the dress as ONE piece (each.. I mean xD) (ie, cut them on the fold of the fabric), then cut a slit down the front one and sewed in the zipper. It got a little wierd near the bottom of the zipper, but I covered up the very end with my bias-tapey-stuff anyways ^_^

That got pretty long xD; Anyways, good luck! :D

Honestly, all of the screenshots you will either need or can get of her costume are in my previous post, I spent a couple of hours capping the movie to get all of the shots I could. There are also some of the others in there that are helpful for things like the cloaks and boots, since they share the same ones.

Other reference shots of the costume are pretty hard to find.

I spent quite a bit of time poking around this site (http://www.toysnjoys.com/naruto.html) to find anything that might help, and I found a few, but other than there and maybe http://www.animegalleries.net, I don't know of any places for good pictures of the movie.
