I'm part of a Naruto group for Metrocon on Sunday. It's going to mainly all of the adults from the series. I hope were talking about the same group, Red-Otaku. If not, there are going to be a hell of a lot of Naruto cosplayers there.
I may be going as short haired Sakura, and someone comming with me will probably be black costumed version Sasuke or Hagane Kotetsu (or both) so we may be able to join a group too. Your Shino costume is great red!!! I wanted to originally cosplay as Hinata-chan for Metrocon, but I never got the costume started since my other costumes took too long ~.~ Anyways, yeah, so we'll see what happens ^-^
