Halloween, Naruto!

We had such a fun Halloween! We celebrated at the ward's trunk or treat last night because Halloween is on a Sunday this year (boo, I love Halloween.) But really it's ok, I finished the costumes (with a little help from siblings and friends) and we looked AWESOME!! Kids and teens and even adults were like, "Hey look! Naruto! I read your manga!"

Remember how I told you to remember Naruto? In case you didn't...Naruto is a Japanese anime, one of the most popular! (Well, really the manga is popular). I won't even get into the details because the post is already going to bore you to pieces, so I'll include reference pictures to help you see the awesomeness. :) I know, I know, I'm completely lame, but I hope you'll put up my lameness for a little while. :)

 There was so much involved in these costumes (I made four of them!) There were so many accessories, so many clothing alterations, it seriously took up all my free time. But the reactions from the kids and other Naruto lovers at the mad house of a party we went to were well worth the effort. :)

David was Kakashi (top), Elisa was Sasuke (left), Carolyn was Sakura (middle) and I was Naruto (right). We had so much fun mimicking poses and pretending to be ninjas!

Sakura loves Sasuke, by the way. He doesn't love anything or anyone, especially not her. Maybe someday he'll come around.

 Elisa loves Sasuke and had a lot of fun playing him!

Carolyn was the only one of us girls luck enough to be a girl in costume. (Not that Elisa and I minded at all. But I'm the only one that didn't have to spray paint my hair another color!)

 (Uuuuuuuuuuum, just imagine cool photoshopped goodness.) I loved David as Kakashi the best. I think he made a perfect Kakashi and his costume took the least amount of effort! (Plus, I have a cartoon crush on Kakashi, and I kind of love David, so it just works out!)

(Ran out of hand on this one...)

(Man, I keep mixing up my rights and lefts! And please excuse my painfully orange pants.)

And we had fun doing random poses. :)

 (Pajama girl was an invited party crasher.)

It was a really odd time to be taking pictures, it was too light for flash and too dark without it. Ugh. Sorry about the inconsistency.

So many pictures! I wish we could have taken more, but life happens and costumes get uncomfortable. :) Happy Halloween!
