One of the world’s most famous anime series, Naruto took the world by storm in 2002. 20 years on, the spin-off series Boruto: Naruto Next Generations is ongoing.
As a result, it’s no surprise the show has inspired legions of cosplayers to portray its best-loved characters. Some of the costumes are particularly memorable; many will point to the infamous black and red Akatsuki robes. But there are many other costumes featured in the series too, and we’ve picked 11 characters that stood out to us.
For each character, we’ve provided an example cosplay, some extra details, and a link to a costume guide to help you show off the character in the most accurate way possible. This usually means buying an all-in-one costume, but sometimes you can do further research and source the parts one at a time.
We’ve also given a link to the cosplayer shown wearing the costume so that you can check out their relevant page for inspiration and additional information. Because Naruto cosplay outfits are so varied and have lots of interpretations, it can be challenging to find what’s authentic, but our guide will help you get as close as possible!
