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?)
