I promised sandals next and here they are. I used a tutorial for this since I generally struggle most with cosplay footwear. I think these turned out pretty good, probably my best homemade shoes ever :). I added some extra decor - the fabric on the back and ribbon around the sides to help them go with my costume more.
Also made the arm guards! I had no idea how to approach these, but I just ended up pulling out some craft foam and my spray adhesive and putting it all together. I coated my foot with glue while working on them since I'm incredibly clumsy when it comes to crafting...and well glue is probably my mortal enemy. After putting the chains on I really found I liked the way they looked!
And finally I whipped up this little ninja pouch and belt just today. Made a pattern for the bag from scratch and then had lots of fun decorating it. I honestly didn't think it'd turn out quite as well as it did. The belt was a bit hard to do, because of the nature of the fabric. It frays like mad...not looking forward to making the vest particularly.
And finally I purchased this replica of Naruto's necklace given to him by Tsunade on Ebay. It was the one item I felt necessary that I also had no desire to make. It would never have the luminous quality I was looking for.
I've also made some ninja scrolls with the elements on them, but I wont post a photo until I've finished all of them! Anime North is two weeks today! Hope I manage to get everything done!
