I bought the vest last year some time for around $15 when Hot Topic was selling them off. I don't remember if I bought the headband there as well, but I actually cut the metal plate from one of those headbands and made my own, so so the blue would match with the rest of the material I made the costume from.

I found patterns for the pants and the shirt from two different sets and used those to sew them. I made the red patches for the sleeves of the shirt with fabric paint and some red cloth. I found an accessories pattern with some gloves and sewed them, then cut the fingers off. The metal plates on the glove were cut from a thin craft metal that I got from my mom. I was able to cut holes in it to sew it onto the gloves. I glued some metal brads over the top of the holes where I sewed the metal on.

The mask I made in three separate parts: the part that covered my face, under my chin, and my neck. I sewed them together and then sewed them to the shirt. I tied the mask in the back, since it wouldn't show. I also velcroed the mask to the headband to cover my left eye (though I left my face uncovered when I wasn't taking pictures).

The shoes, like the mask, I also made without any pattern. I bought a pair of $10 sandals and cut the top part off. I stapled the cloth to the base of the sandal I was left with, then hand sewed cloth to cover the staples. Then I hand sewed the part to cover my feet and legs, and did my best to get it tight so I could walk comfortably.

I used sports tape on my legs for that wrapping and used bandage wrap on my right leg. I also printed off covers to make the Icha Icha Paradise, Tactics, and Violence covers which I used on the vol. 1 and 2 Naruto manga and vol. 1 One Piece manga. I stored these in the bag that I made to wear behind me as Kakashi's bag. This was also without a pattern, and while the bag didn't turn out as good as I'd like, it was adequate. I also kept two plastic kunai in my vest that I used in some pictures.

My wig was the punky wig from CosWorx in Silver White color. I cut it to match the character and used hairspray and later gel to get the hair to stay to the right.
