FAQ/FUN FACTS
PLEASE READ THIS BEFORE ASKING QUESTIONS, THE ANSWER MAY BE RIGHT HERE.

· Yes, that is a wig. I bought it from here. They change their stock often, and may not have the same exact wig I use anymore. After buying it, I had to trim the bangs a little, no other styling was required. I highly recommend Perihair for nice-looking, inexpensive wigs.
· Yes, I tweezed my eyebrows off for this particular photo. No it didn't hurt. They took about 2 months to grow back fully. Now I know better and only shave them off now every time I cosplay as Gaara. Shaving them, it only takes about 1 month for them to grown back fully.
· I use liquid eyeliner for my eyes. I cover hard to reach places [lower eyelid, and corner of the eye near the tear duct] with a plain black eyeliner stick. I spend roughly 45 minutes on each eye.
· I use crimson red and tuscan red prisma markers for the kanji. For this particular photo I free-handed it, but now I prefer to use a stencil I made. It washes off very easily with toothpaste and water.
· I DID NOT MAKE THIS OUTFIT. I DID NOT MAKE THIS OUTFIT. I DID NOT MAKE THIS OUTFIT. I purchased it off of eBay. For those curious, I DID MAKE A SEPERATE COAT [not nearly as nice or professional as this black one]. It has the 'correct' anime colors and can be seen here.
· Yes, I have a gourd but I tend to not wear it with the Kazekage outfit. I prefer wearing it with the chuunin outfit since the strap is easier to hide. You can see it here.
· I do not plan to enter any costume contests anytime soon. I have terrible stage-frieght, and lack the self-confidence to try.
· The only thing edited/shopped in this is my eye color and a little added contrast. Original here; The photographer's name was Kevin. Also check out my friend, Fonzy on there. He's dressed up as Shunsei from Bleach and standing next to me in a few photos.
· Yes, I got glomped, hugged and tackled by tons of fangirls. Either willingly or not.
· The earring is a homage many pieces of fanart and even officially earlier parts of the manga when Gaara was depicted as having three earrings on his ears, which I fancy. Earrings like it can be found on eBay, they are usually called "chain cuff earrings" or just "chain earrings".
· I am not a boy, sorry to disappoint. For those that asked, I look like this when not in cosplay. ._.
· I may look tall in this photo, but I am not. I am very short, 5ft 2in.

Wow is all I can say. Simply amazin' cosplay, and with Gaara. He's always been one on those people that are hard to cosplay, but you did an amzing job. And shaving your eyebrows? That would be something I wouldn't be so willing to do. Kudos for having such an amazing cosplay <333

Wow. You look exactly like I would think a RL Gaara would look. Kudos on tweezing/shaving your eyebrows off. That must of taken a lot of guts the tweezing must have been pretty painful too. XP You have got to be the most convincing Gaara cosplayer I have ever seen.

OMG. You do a really good Gaara!

And snaps for you for having guts not only to cosplay but to go to the extent of shaving your eyebrows!

Ahhh...if I was there, I wouldn't have tackled you (though I'd understand why anyone would want to) but I'd be stalking you and taking pictures.

Thats awesome! My friend just had her mom make her a gaara costume, but her mom doesn't really know what gaara looks like so it's very slightly off, cuz she based it on a crappy reference we found XD but she sucks when it comes to putting on the eye make up, it looked gay XD then I managed to loose my eyeliner for my Naruto cosplay somewhere in her house T3T so now I need to buy a new one -.-" this was Halloween when this happened , the costume you bought is pretty cool and I just realized what my friends costume is missing! fishnet under the coat! I like the wig ya got X3 Me and my friend are noob cosplayers XD Though she'll say she isn't probably XD cuz she has cosplayed a lot but she doesn't normally do it her self XD
