Hinata Hyuuga is a shy girl who has a crush on Naruto Uzumaki, the main character of the Naruto anime. The Naruto anime is a great series. It has action, comedy, and a tiny bit of romance. All the young ninjas in Naruto are people to admire. They work hard to achieve their dreams and to protect their village.
Hinata is on Team 8. Her teammates are Kiba Inuzuka and Shino Aburame. Her jounin sensei is Kurenai Yuhi.
This costume was super easy to make. I made the jacket from lavender and grey fleece. The pants are actually boys pants from Carter's - because it's nearly impossible to find girls pants in a plain navy color without any ruffles or embroidery. The ninja forehead protector was purchased from ebay.
I made this costume for my daughter because I wanted to share my hobby with her. We cosplayed together at Fanime 2008 and she was a big hit! Everyone thought she was so cute! In fact, she was so cute that two artists from Artist Alley gave her free Hinata stuff!
I remade this costume in 2009 because my daughter outgrew the original. The new jacket is much nicer than the original! It's fully lined and has side seam pockets.
