Sai

Naruto: Shippūden the Movie

Last Updated: 07-18-2008


Well, at long last I finished it, after a month of work and a hundred dollars spent. I decided on Sai after not really wanting to cosplay Kabuto for the second convention in a row, and having had lost so much weight and toned up so much from jiu jitsu that I felt confident enough to pull off a midriff-baring cosplay. I also wanted something that I didn't have to dye or heavily style my hair for (hence, a black wig that my neighbour thought was my natural hairXD). Sai is also cool, albeit patronizingly funny in social situations; kinda like me.:P
The costume consists of:
-Black wig
-Leaf headband
-Breastbinder
-Cropped black shirt with grey zipper and red felt sewn-on shoulder straps
-Plastic tontou (spraypainted it black and wrapped it in cloth taping; a loop of black felt keeps it attached to the shirt)
-Black gloves (bought and then cut the thumbs and index fingers)
-Red and white belt (stripe put on with fabric paint)
-Black pants
-Weapons pouch (made of tan felt and snapped onto pants)
-Gauze bandages
-Shuriken holster from Kabuto costume
-Black sandals (same technique as Kabuto cosplay used to make them)
-Calligraphy brush for some poses
I'm a hint disappointed with a few aspects of the costume, mainly the shirt only being black instead of the proper black and grey, and my gloves aren't quite right. I also still felt a bit fat and sucked in my stomach nearly all day while at AN when not hiding my snowy midriff with my bag or arms XD. And even then I'm pretty sure a pair of guys made a comment supposedly behind my back on me being a bit fat.....to them, f*ck you, I went practically freaking anorexic to lose two extra inches off my stomach in two months, in addition to nearly killing myself in Jiu Jitsu since January.
On a good aspect, the outfit is quite comfy when it's not cold outside (night and early morning were so damn cold..... X_X) and I love that simple flashy effect of hints of red on black.
