Hey Everyone, This is my first year making my kids costumes and I'm pretty proud of them!
This one is my son's, He wanted to be Naruto, so after looking up a picture online it seemed pretty simple to do.
The only part not recon'd is the headband which he already had.
I didn't take any before pictures but here's a breakdown of what it was made out of:
The Jacket:
Black Fleece Track Jacket (99 cents at the thrift store)
Orange Sweatshirt Pieces are sewn onto the jacket (50 cents for the orange sweatshirt at the thrift store)
The Spiral Patches are made out of Felt (white) and T-Shirt Scraps (Red) & Some Black Fabric Paint I already Had.
The Pants:
I got really lucky and found a pair of bright orange dickies at the thrift store for $2, They were too big but I just put some elastic in the waistband and they're fine now, Kind of a droopy butt going on, not sure if I feel like fixing it since it's just for halloween anyway. The white around the leg is just some fabric scraps.
*I still need to do the boots but I'm going to try and find a pair of high tops at the thrift store, cut out the toe & spray paint them black... that's the idea anyway*
Also, we're going to get some yellow temporary hair spray for halloween.

The first picture is the one I got my ideas from. (The one on the right is Naruto)
Hope you like it!

Way to go! Not too many people can recon that much of a costume when it comes to anime characters (not in my experience anyway Tongue). You did a great job.
