Becoming a Shinobi: Years ago, there were always three big anime that dominated the space, Bleach, One Piece, and Naruto. It was impossible to go anywhere without hearing about or seeing one of the three fandoms everywhere. Naruto especially became awfully popular not only for the show’s plot and characters but the memes that arose from it still exist today. Using the simple phrase “Naruto running” paints a perfect picture in everyone’s mind without having even seen the show.

One of the most infamous characters is Sakura Haruno, someone who’s made a name for herself throughout the series. Ready to do her cosplay?

Let’s first look at the origins before we move on to the costume

Sakura was born the only child to Mebuki and Kizashi Haruno and unlike her other two companions, had an ordinary childhood. Her only struggles growing up revolved around petty bullying from her classmates due to her large forehead, which she then felt self-conscious about. It wasn’t until Ino Yamanaka showed up to defend her and this led to Sakura respected and admiring Ino, learning from her guidance.

As time went on, Sakura became more comfortable with herself as a result of Ino’s help but started to feel as if she was living in her shadow rather than an equal.

After entering the Academy, Sakura met Sasuke and soon developed a crush on him. After talking about this to other girls she was surprised to learn just how popular Sasuke was. Years later, after learning that Ino also had a crush on Sasuke, Sakura ended their friendship in order to compete for Sasuke’s love and thus starting a bitter rivalry between the two former friends.

So much for the background, which, by the way, you should know before you put on a costume. Because not only the clothes are important for a cosplay look, but also how you wear them. And you can do that well only if you get to know the character first.

How do you copy that notable Sakura Haruno look?

Easily, that’s how.

  • Start with a pair of black biker shorts and wrap white gauze around the right thigh.
  • Then sliding on a short-sleeved red cloak with white trimming, that splits at the sides and opens up. Or, use a red short-sleeved tee with a zipper that starts at the collar and wraps around the side, with pink shorts, pink arm bands, and black gloves.
  • Then add a pink wig and a Shinobi headband to wrap around the front.
  • Slip on some black boots that stop just after the ankle and don’t forget the Kunai daggers!

 Masashi Kishimoto created a wonderful character that you’re now ready to cosplay with this Sakura Haruno costume and win Sasuke’s heart!
