Happy Father's Day! To my favorite fictional dad, Minato, as well as to my real dad and all your awesome fathers out there!

Much of what hits me right in the feels when it comes to Naruto comes from the family bonds, especially Naruto's family. Even though Naruto never got to grow up with his parents, Minato and Kushina's love transcended their deaths and they became the two suns Naruto needed to suppress the darkness inside him.

I sniffled through just about every appearance Minato and Kushina made, especially the chapters revealing the truth about the day Naruto was born. That's why playing Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 and watching the Naruto Shippuden: Road to Ninja movie was like a beating to my heart, hahah.

So here's a photo from a cosplay shoot we did of Naruto's family, creating family photos that could have been if they were able to stay together </3 It was fun and sweet and a little painful. We didn't know what to do with our feelingsssss

Here's something pretty simple for now — a portrait as Minato Namikaze, the person behind the title of Yondaime or Fourth Hokage.

The mystery of his character was one of the things that greatly intrigued me when I started getting into Naruto way back. I'm glad that much has been revealed about him now. I particularly liked when they showed how he and Kushina/Naruto's mom met, and the tragic story of that day in Konoha that changed so many lives forever. (Naruto Shippuuden episodes 246 to 249, if you want to check it out.)

So yeah, I guess I wanted a simple portrait depicting Minato before all that: A quiet, kind guy who used to just stand in the background but learned to be strong by finding the person he wanted to protect no matter what.

Guh, drowning in Naruto feels nowadays. We've got a couple of shoots lined up that are a bit more elaborate than this! I hope you guys are somewhat updated in the manga, because one of the shoots is kiiiiind of a spoiler! A little preview :pointr: [link]

"Your big brother's here to protect you, no matter what happens."

This is actually one of the frames from...

Because this is how we deal with our manga feelings. SHINRA TENSEI TO THE KOKORO


Last week, I was able to do an Uchiha brothers shoot with a special little guy.

One of the relationships in Naruto that really digs at my heart with a spoon is the brotherly bond between Itachi and Sasuke. We wanted to do a shoot that explores what they might have been like before the incident — those happier days we barely got to see in the manga and anime.

SPOILER WARNING! GET OUT IF YOU HAVEN'T READ CHAPTER 614


(Mostly for people who only watch the anime! May it not be said I didn't warn you)

"Hinata-sama is... willing to die for you, Naruto...
So keep in mind... that your life... is not your own... anymore
Now, it also... includes... mine."

Photographers/assstants:
:iconhuzafan: Erving
:iconhappy-hario: Marko

The composition is based on this artwork [link] by bbirdd on Pixiv. Just like the manga chapter, it's called "To You".
(Thanks for finding her, ~munette!)

Though our take on it probably happened a few minutes after this, as the seal has disappeared; which means that Neji had already gone to a place they can no longer reach. Unless they are Kabutochimaru

I wish I knew the artist's page so we could properly credit them. Please inform me if you know the source!

As for my sentiments toward this scene and this shoot, I've poured most of it out on my previous post :pointr: [link]

GAH this shoot is made of PAIN. I process these photos with such a heavy heart, because as with my other friends cosplaying for this shoot, Neji's death hit me in a big way. I am grateful for the emotional reactions on my previous submission, though I do apologize for making you guys feel so sad! Perhaps after all the serious photos have been posted, perhaps I can share some things about the shoot that might make you laugh.

"I won't give up because I am Naruto Uzumaki! I'm the son of the Fourth Hokage! I won't die until I become a bigger badass than my dad!"

This isn't based on any particular scene, but I imagined the spirit of Minato at Naruto's side when his indomitable determination allows him to stand up from yet another beatdown; and he still has enough energy to yell at his opponent about why he won't lose. Whether or not Naruto can sense it, Minato places his hand on his son's shoulder and he thinks of Kushina. "Kushina, I hope you can see how our son has grown. And how much he came to be like you. You truly are his mother."

Aah, my two favorite ninjas! I have for so long wanted a Naruto and Minato father and son photo, but of course on most occasions I can only choose to be one or the other. And then I learned Kage Bunshin no Jutsu! :laughing:

"Kushina… Naruto… I only wish we could have had more time together."

series: Naruto Shippuden
:iconbehindinfinity: Jin as Minato Namikaze
:camera: photos by Reskiy

It appears I have a habit of reenacting scenes that break my heart the most. The episodes/chapters on the truth about Minato and Kushina's love and sacrifice on the night of Naruto's birth and the Kyuubi's rampage on Konoha — those inflict a critical hit to my kokoro. So for a good chunk of the time that Miguel merkymerx and I were playing Ultimate Ninja Storm 3, I was playing through manly tears. Hahah!

A serious shoot for my Yondaime Hokage cosplay has been long overdue, but finally here it is! I have some more photos I would like to try doing once I finish with detailing my prop of Minato's special kunai. :)

> You invited too many girls to be your date on Tanabata
> Somehow, they don't seem to mind...


It was Tanabata last weekend, and I'm always a little late posting stuff for it so here's to keeping up with tradition! Hahah! I got to spend the day with a lot of friends I'm very thankful to have crossed paths with, so it didn't cross my mind to wish for anything more. :cheese:

Tanabata has sentimental value to me even if it's not really a worldwide holiday. I hope those of you who celebrate it had a happy one! :star:

The first time I saw Chloe, I thought she looked like a little orange fox. Particularly, a miniature version of a certain nine-tailed fox from Naruto. I’m glad we finally got to do this! She is now Chloebi. (The eye markings were Photoshopped; I wouldn’t put makeup on my pets!)

Eren, Mikasa... We've come so far from where we were as kids. In the past few years, we've had to learn that we can never tell who we might lose forever with every new day. I'm glad I can be useful as a strategist, although this role makes me even more painfully aware of the dangers of this world we live in. Still, I hope that it's not too much to wish that at least the three of us will always be together.

Photos from our cosplay shoot (more to follow):


▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬

We would also like to thank some shops that helped us a lot with our costumes! Hopefully they can make your cosplay lives a little easier as well, hahah!

:bulletred: Studio Boheme
We had our boots custom-made at Studio Boheme. Finding accurate boots was frustrating for us, so we decided to try having them made. Much to our delight, the people at Studio Boheme were actually familiar with Shingeki no Kyojin! They were awesome to work with, and our boots came out excellent! Check them out if you need your own SnK boots, any sort of custom leather things for cosplay, or even apparel for everyday life.

:bulletred: Den Den Style
Our jackets were made by our friends at Den Den Style! They have the most accurate SnK jackets in structure and color that we've seen anywhere so we had to have our jackets made by them!

We made our harnesses by ourselves from scratch. Here's a look at the unfinished sets :pointr: www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbi… a frustrating learning experience, hahah! The more time we spent trying to make them and wear them, the more we realized how impractical and senseless the design actually is. We're still working on improving them for aesthetics and comfort. We're also in the process of making our 3DMG. If you're interested, I post costume progress photos and photoshoot outtakes on my Facebook page:

Our team wore these cosplays to a con a few weeks ago and people were shocked I had chosen to be Mikasa. Hahah! What can I say, she's got balls and I appreciate her character. Also nobody else wanted to be Mikasa and I was the one with the correct height in proportion to everyone else so I took one for the team. She turned out to be a fun character to portray despite her usual stoic demeanor. I guess you'll see in the other photos I'll be posting from our shoot! I hope you'll look forward to them!
