View Full Version : Naruto costume: Jiraiya

Does anyone know if Jiraiya's headband is made and sold? I looked all over ebay and couldn't find anything ;-;

If it can't be bought, does anyone have any recommendations on how I can make it? @_@;

i suck at paper machette, any other suggestions?

i suppose the foam annie-mei mentioned may be do-able ^-^;

just size the "pattern" to your head specifically. The "ends" of the pattern are extendable depending on how you want it to sit under your wig (remember, the red band that holds it is nowhere seen over his white hair, so we had to put the wig over the headband).

I made mine out of a small piece of Wonderflex. I'm not planning to wear the costume again anytime soon, so if you care for it, I can sell you mine for cheap. Pics can be found in my gallery.

I made mine slightly rounded with the "horns" blended into the rest of the piece so that it appears as one continuous piece. I attached it right to my wig, but the 4 edges half small holes pierced through in case it ever gets attached to a headband or something. It could use a repainting though. I did a rather rush job on the paint the night before we left for Otakon even though I spent several days making it during the summer. >_>;;

Craft foam probably wouldn't look as good unless you can get it into a good curve as Jiraiya's curves in both directions (ie. like the outside of a sphere, not a cylinder which craft foam would usually give).

awww thank you, but i got it figured out. a friend of mine was planning on doign a jiraiya costume too, and he offered to make a headband for me out of sheet metal or something like that. but thank you so much nonetheless ^-^

However, i am a bit concerned with something else... his gloves. @_@
