I noticed no one was discussing this, so I thought I might create a new thread for it.
They are making a Stage Musical for Naruto, following the whole story of Part 1.
And this just looks totally awesome!
The actors look pretty much exactly as their characters!!
My favorite is the one playing Ino.
She's beautiful and looks just like her, despite being an asian girl with blond hair, which is usually hard to pull.
I'm sure there is some photoshop there, but still, they really look great!
I hope there will be a way for us to see that Stage on Internet someday.
If they ever do a movie about Naruto, I hope they use those actors.
The costumes are all really good. They do what I always wish more cosplayers would do, which is try to imagine the costumes as things that would appear in reality rather than trying to make them look identical to the anime or manga, where designs are inherently simplified to cut down on how many lines the artists have to draw.
Using textured materials and patterend fabrics, and adding embellishments like seams, fasteners, studs, etc. to the design really makes them look both more interesting and more believable.
