New Cosplay: Itachi Uchiha - Female Nurse

Hey everyone! 

I'm extremely late with this post and I apologize for that! It's been insane with my finals and exams but now it's over and I have some free time!

In May I started and finished a new costume: Itachi Uchiha - Female Nurse from Naruto!

FanArt by ちゅん太郎

I saw this Fanart on Tumblr some time ago, and I thought it would make an interesting cosplay (considering I never saw anyone doing it and, as everyone knows, I love cosplaying Itachi)! I finally had my chance to do it for the con Anicomics 2013 that was held also in May!

I must warn you that I don't have many pictures. Please try to understand that I did this in 4 days and was in a rush!


I found this very light pink fabric for a cheap price. I wanted something a bit darker but it still worked pretty well for what I wanted! I didn't, however, realise it was so sheer which became a problem to me considering every bra that I owned showed through.

I later fixed the problem by sewing some of the fabric on an old white bra that I own. It still shows a little bit, but you could barely see it.

Some progress photos of the dress 

This dress was a lot of fun to do and also a lot of hard work. It seems pretty simple but it has a certain amount of detail that requires special attention, specially the collar.

I ended up adding two types of white lace and light pink ribbon on the collar to give it an extra girly and cute effect. I think it looks so much better that way!

Finished! (Apologize for the bad photo)
This was my first time doing a nurse hat! I decided to make a pattern out of paper so it could guide me. I think it worked quite well! I used interfacing to give it a more rigid form (also used on the collar!).

I also decided to add the ribbon and lace on the hat. The Uchiha symbol was made out of fake leather that was left from Madara's costume! The white part is also the same leather but painted with white acrylics (it works perfectly but you have to give it 5/6 coats).

What happens when you use spray paint but don't wear gloves!

After starting this costume I noticed that Itachi isn't wearing any shoes - only socks. And I can't really walk walk around barefoot (I actually can but I prefer not to).

I had these old shoes at home from back in the days I was 13. They're a bit tight but still fit me, and since I didn't want to go over budget and buy new shoes, I decided to paint them pink!

That spray paint isn't the best choice, considering the paint started to peel off after walking around at the convention for 3 or 4 hours (I must note though, that I did photoshoots and laid on the floor several times), but it worked out pretty well! I wanted a slightly lighter pink, but this one is still good 

Some photos of the finished costume!


At Anicomics 2013 I ended up doing a small photoshoot with Fiaziinha as the photographer! Most of the photos are really, really pretty! I'll start posting of DeviantArt soon! In the meantime...



You didn't thought I would leave you without photos, right? Hope you liked it 

XoXo,
Gothica
