Are you a fan of Naruto? My kids love the show and did a fun cosplay fan convention with their friends about a year and half ago. I'm sharing it now to inspire cosplay ideas for Halloween, since conventions are all but virtual these days. 2 of my kids and their friends cosplayed as Naruto characters.

Step 1: Sourcing items at the Thrift Store

Begin by a trip to your local thrift store. There's not really a "better" or "best" thrift store. Thrifting takes work and time. Give yourself a couple hours. Don't just look in your "size" section. Clothes get put away wrongly all the time. 

Fabric from clothes at the thrift store cost less than buying fabric at the fabric store, so source all the things you can at the thrift or yard sales.

We found a blue shirt, khaki pants and funky shoes for my daughter's Sasuke costume. All the Naruto ninja's wear open toe shoes/boots...so we knew we could cut the toes off these shoes.

For a simple Headband, cut a strip of an old blue t-shirt. Cut this shape with the Cricut and iron it on.

Same idea for the Naruto Hidden Leaf Village Headbands. Here's another post for a more complicated headband if you want to kick it up a notch.  For a simple Headband, cut a strip of an old blue t-shirt. Cut this shape with the Cricut and iron it on.

Then iron-on the black hidden leaf symbol.
