I don't know how to go about constructing Gaara's costume, however. Can someone give me a few tips or suggestions?
You can find many pictures at www.narutoex.com
. As for the costume..
Well, I don't know fabrics. But, his costume for me is easy to make. Uh.. The net shirt you could probably find in a place like Hot Topic (bane of most people).
That tatoo on his forhead you can either have a friend ink on you, or you could get a tatoo temp. For that, go to www.****.com
Their prices a BIT steep though. Oh- and the temp tatoo supposedly lasts up to a week, you know how those are. u_u. The sash, im not sure if it is white or red. But take a nice long piece of cloth and wrap it around yourself. You might wanna sew the edges of it to keep it from.. uh.. Well, lets just say slowly lose itself.
The shoes and main outfit, you're gonna have to go at it yourself. Unless you wanna talk to me on AIM, then maybe I could help you out with a pattern of some sort.
Either way, Good Luck. And if you want my Screen Name, just PM me.
On an Edit; You could try Gaara's "debt to the leaf" look. I like it. And it doesnt require the shaving of one's arms.
