About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- I had done Ino as a genin and I wanted to do her older version because many of my friends had done the older versions! I love Ino to death! Even though many people don't. My mom didn't want to make this for me and we didn't have the time with other costumes, so we ordered in on ebay. It didn't come like we thought it would. I bought a skirt-swimsuit bottom for the black skirt. The purple skirt was too small from what we ordered, so we shortened the velcro to make it extend more. We also added the button. We shortened the skirt by 2-3 inches as well. The blouse was way off in that it didn't show off the shoulders. It looked more like Sakura's blouse. My mom fix it. For the chain-mesh elbow pad-thing I took the pieces of my sister's Gaara genin shirt which we cut off the fish-net shirt and had my mom hem them. They worked really well at the time, but now they're kinda stretched out... : ( For her nylon meshing on the thighs and knees, we bought a fish-net nylons and butchered them. We then added elastic to the edges. For the ones on the knees I have to stick double-sided tape to my knees to keep them up. They slid down when I bend my knees. I didn't make the elastic that tight, because it would have made my skin squish together! For the ninja sandals I used a tutorial. They're just like the blue ones, but black. I hate making those shoes. I bought my hair clip and earrings at Claire's and my ninja holster and kunai are from Toys-n-joys. I used my own hair at the time but I later cut it. : ( I haven't wore this costume in a long time since I cut my hair. I think now I could have made it by myself. If I ever did have the time and motivation I would like to remake it.
