Temari is my first cosplay. I first debuted with it at Expomanga 2007 on March.
I really like this character of the series not just because of her outfit, (I love the fan) but I like her personality, she`s a strong kunoichi, powerful and at the same time she`s gorgeous and blows up any annoying person on her way. She`s always aware and knows what to do at any situation. I think I don`t need to give more information about her, if you are here that means you already know her.
I didn`t had too much time to make it, I wanted to wear it on march and I realised the convention was on that month on february so I got to work quickly, I had to sew it by hand, my mother helped a lot, because I didn`t have a sewing machine.
I made the sandals myself using cheap sandals, black cloth and a very strong glue. I`m very happy with the result, they`re really comfortable! I`ve run with these and they go perfect.
The fan was a quest for me, I love it, it was hard to make it in two days (I hadn`t had more time to finish the whole thing) but I made it and Im really satisfied with it. I bought thin wood sticks, painted them black, made a hole to insert a screw through. Once I had it done, I placed it on the floor of my living room and cutted the cloth giving the shape I wanted. Then I ironed the cloth to the wood with fliselina(some kind of glue that sticks when ironed). I hand-sewed the spots. And that was it, a 2 diameter fan that blows up everything! I know it`s not exactly the same as temari`s but I like it very much, and people loved it!
The thing I don`t like about this costume is the wig, I couldn`t find an appropriate one, one that I could make 4 buns and the net wouldn`t show, and so I was forced to make something a-like with my hair, and so it ruined the costume but people liked it anyway becasue of the rest of it. I did my best with the money I had.
I hope you like it as much as I do!
