Uzumaki Naruto: LET'S END THIS!



:iconbehindinfinity: Uzumaki Naruto by Jin *behindinfinity
:camera: photographed by ~Happy-Hario

The latest Naruto manga chapters are bringing me so many feelings I don't know what to do with, so I figured it would be a good time to get a decent portrait of my updated Naruto cosplay. The changes aren't too drastic from my previous look: I got a new wig and styled it, wore a different set of contacts (I'm using these), I altered the headband a little, and taught myself a few new things with makeup. I also purposely messed up the sleeves because his jacket got torn up during the Shinobi War.

I've been working more on being more expressive with my face for photo shoots. I finally got the confidence to try that smirk that Naruto does when, no matter how terrible the situation is looking, you know his heart is soaring and he's ready to give it all he's got. Those moments give me chills when I'm reading the manga, and I hope to achieve even a fraction of the way Naruto's eyes pierce right through a person's heart.

The pose was inspired by a couple of panels from Chapter 631 and 632:

I have my friend Marko ~Happy-Hario to thank for the awesome capture. I told him what kind of lighting I had in mind and he immediately figured out how to do it! This was taken outside one evening, in our favorite field. We didn't have light stands with us so the lighting equipment was held up in place by more of our friends. They're the best! :lol: Thank you Sammy ~flamable77, Dom ~Weakman, Cat ~catherinejannelle and Mel!
