About this Costume
Construction Details:
♥~Jacket~♥
The jacket is made from a heavy-weight twill and is a good spring/fall jacket on it's own. XD It has a fully functional metal zipper and draw-string hood. I made the pattern for it by altering together several patterns. The fluff was mostly hand stitched on. For the patches, I drafted the pattern based on my reference pictures and then I hand embroidered both of them (I adore them so much ^^6).

♥~Shirt & Pants~♥
The undershirt was custom dyed and the fishnet was then stitched on in place. I hemmed up a pair of navy colored pants I found at a thrift store to make her capris and then added on athletic tape to the right leg under where the kunai pouch goes.

♥~Sandals & Accessories~♥
I made the ninja sandals with the pattern I developed myself, same with the kunai pouch and tool pouch. The kunai props and forehead protector are official merchandise, but I do also have a home-made forehead protector. The medicine bottle was a bottle I found in Chinatown and I painted it the right color.
Personal Thoughts:
I always loved how adorably cute Hinata was and had wanted to cosplay her when I first watched the show but she got put off since I had to make Temari for a group at Otakon 2005, but I'm so glad I did get to cosplay her. It was a bit of a challenge making this cosplay at that time because I had never embroidered anything before or custom-dyed a wig plus I was going to school full time. ^^;

Katie Bair Dye & Sharpie Dye
Styling Notes
I started with a Lulu in Femme (light purple) which I cut to the proper tapered back with face-framing bits. To dye it I used a mix of 2 of Katie Bair's dyes but when that didn't darken it enough I had to supplement with a custom-mixed sharpie dye to finish the job. It was a challenge because it was the first time I ever had to make my own custom dye.
