Naruto Fan Takes On Kakashi Hatake in Electrifying Cosplay

“The True Measure Of A Shinobi Is Not How He Lives, But How He Dies.”

Claimed as being one of the best and longest-running anime series of all time, Naruto took the manga world by storm with its TV debut in 2002.

Written and illustrated by Masashi Kishimoto, who also wrote Samurai 8: The Tale of Hachimaru which ended in March 2020, Naruto is fondly remembered by fans to this very day even though the animated series ended in 2017.

Wanting to pay tribute to the popular series, cosplayer Nik brings to life their take on the shinobi, Kakashi Hatake.

Who is Kakashi Hatake?

Just in case this is your first time hearing of Kakashi, let me give you a quick run-down: Kakashi Hatake is a shinobi of Konohagakure’s Hatake clan in Naruto. The leader of Team 7, Hatake teaches the importance of teamwork to his students and is also one of Konoha’s most talented ninjas.

Slipping into the shoes of the talented warrior is Nik, otherwise known as Nitsvetov on Instagram. Known for their fashion modelling career, Nik also loves nothing more than to dive into some cosplay.

Scrolling through Nik’s Instagram really illuminates how incredibly skilled they are at taking on the personas of many different characters. This time, however, Nik easily takes on Naruto‘s Hatake with amazing results.

As you can see from the images, Nik styles their hair in the same way as Hatake’s – spiky silver hair often oriented to his left side. Not forgetting to include Hatake’s damaged eye that he received during the Third Shinobi World War,

Nik also shows off in a ‘Maid Kakashi’ outfit. This particular cosplay combines the characters of Kakashi and also Natsu who was a maid of the Hyūga clan in Naruto.

You can check out all of Nik’s photoshoots on their Instagram, the Lady Dimitrescu cosplay is pretty amazing! Also, remember that some of the pictures are NSFW.
