ANBU Sakura

So, next year I'll be cosplaying as ANBU Sakura, mainly because I absolutely love ANBU, and it's sorta been like a dream cosplay of mine. Sakura was a last minute add-on when I was thinking of mask designs and came up with one that I thought suited her. lol.

So my plan was to do it proper to a T, with the ninja boots and everything, but then my sewing machine broke. My mom has thankfully agreed to make the vest for me, as that's kinda necessary, but I'm gonna have to improvise the rest because I don't quite feel like dumping more projects on her.

The main reason I'm posting is for people's thoughts on ANBU cosplays being pretty... leniant? As for example, I've seen some cosplays that have kinda a punkish theme, with spikes and pretty cool rocker boots or whatever. I remember one year at a convention I went to there was a Kakashi and a fem!Kakashi doing kinda like ANBU guitar hero versions? Or something. Might not have been ANBU, but I remember thinking it was awesome.

Thoughts? Is it acceptable? (Lol, of course it is, but is it tacky? Should I just spend more money and commission the ninja boots proper?)

Honestly? I think the costume should be all about your own interpretation of your character.
I think people get all uptight over what's "realistic" with ANBU, but I say if you like something and you wanna go with it, then JUST DO IT!!!

I made my own ANBU Sakura about five or six years ago. It's nothing like any other ANBU Sakura I've ever seen, and I'm quite happy about it. I added small details to my costume that I thought would make mine stand out, and you know what? I still think it rocks. I was sad to retire her. =/

But as far as the ninja boots go, I can give you some tips/ideas for what I used for mine if you like them. They worked perfectly fine for me, and I even used them for my Shippuuden version of Sakura too because they were so darn comfortable to walk around in. ;D

Hope this helps, and Gambatte ne!!!

Yeah! I kinda see ANBU cosplays as something that's very easy to add in your own interpretation to, make it really your own.

I just had to go look at your cosplay, lol, it's so awesome! I hope mine turns out nearly that good. :/

I like your boots as well. Would love some tips, ^^;;

I was totally planning on cosplaying ANBU Sasuke next year at Sakura Con! I love when I see other cosplayers attempting original uncommon alternatives to a character's outfit/design. Looking forward to seeing how yours turns out.
