When it comes to Naruto, fans are used to cosplays. The classic shonen series has prompted thousands of fans to dress like its heroes, but there are some who pull off their looks better than others. Over on Instagram, one fan just showed off their team cosplay of Sakura and Sarada – and it looks pretty legit.
If you check out Alena’s latest cosplays, you will see that the Russian makeup artist has been trying her hand at Naruto as of late. The anime fan has shared looks she’s done based on Minato, Kushina, Rin, Naruto, and even Konan. However, it is her cosplay of Sakura that has fans talking.
As you can see below, Alena did a grown-up take on Sakura and had a fellow cosplayer dress up as Sarada. The makeup arist cane be seen on the left with a cropped pink wig and red headband like the one Sakura wears. A fuzzy red sweater completes the cozy look, and Alena even drew in Sakura’s chakra seal on her forehead.
Sarada is also enjoying a civilian look in this cosplay. The daughter of Sakura and Sasuke isn’t touting the Uchiha clan’s symbol on her clothes, but her jet-black hair from the anime was carried over. The cosplayer went the extra mile to get Sarada’s eye color right, and the look manages to shine through even though she is wearing glasses.
Really, it’s just a shame that the frames are not as red as the one Sarada really wears.
This impressive cosplay has Naruto fans wanting to up their convention game, but these fans are not the only ones going the extra mile. Earlier this year, a mother-son cosplay of Gai and Rock Lee went viral online. The hilarious duo visited a local anime convention where they dressed as the Taijutsu experts, and they glued-on eyebrows had anime lovers dying.
‘Fairly OddParents’ Creator Shares ‘Naruto’ Crossover!
When it comes to The Fairly OddParents, only a few want to believe in the existence of fairy godparents. However, there is one anime hero who would believe it. Yes, if Naruto got a chance to join the cartoon, the ninja would be all for Cosmo and Wanda.
So, it is rather fitting that the creator of The Fairly OddParents just drew up his own mash-up.
Taking to Twitter, Butch Hartman had fans rolling when he shared a drawing of Naruto. The mash-up, which can be seen below, shows the young ninja crouching down with a familiar face next to him. Chester McBadbat is seen jumping next to Naruto with his braces on full display, and the blond boys look like they are ready to take out someone.
Fans are loving the new anime and cartoon mash-up, but they cannot say they are surprised by it. Over the last few weeks, Hartman has shared a slew of crossovers featuring Attack on Titan, Dragon Ball, JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure, One Punch Man, and more.
Earlier this year, Hartman even teamed up with Crunchyroll to give The Fairly OddParents a full-on anime makeover. The artist did an anime-style imagining of Timmy Turner and his fairy godparent comrades taking on Mr. Crocker. The fight paid homage to classic series like Dragon Ball, and Hartman told fans he took on the crossover because he is a big fan of the anime industry.
As for Naruto, the connection between the anime and The Fairly OddParents is made clear by Hartman himself. The artist captioned the picture “Naruto McBadbat”, so it looks like Chester just got himself one awesome step-brother.
