Today we at Konnichiwa Magazine are going through the most accurate Hinata Cosplay from all over the internet. Hinata has a certain unique look that not all cosplayers can transform into. By looking through the archives, we were very impressed to find such amazing transformations by people dedicated to create their best to create a perfect Hinata Cosplay.
Hinata Uzumaki (うずまきヒナタ, Uzumaki Hinata, née Hyūga(日向)) is a kunoichi and the former heiress of the Hyūga clan. Because of her meek disposition, her father doubted that she was suited for the responsibilities of leading the clan, much less life as a ninja, leading him to disinherit her.
Nonetheless, Hinata persevered and from observation of Naruto Uzumaki especially, Hinata found both an example to follow to be more assertive, and a person to love. Through her membership with Team 8, she sought to become strong enough to change herself, if even a little at a time.
Hinata is the oldest daughter of Hiashi Hyūga. When she was still a child, Hinata was almost kidnapped by the-then Head Ninja of Kumogakure, who was visiting Konoha under the guise of signing a peace treaty between their two villages. Hiashi killed him and saved Hinata, setting in motion the events that would become known as the “Hyūga Affair“.
Because Hiashi was the head of the Hyūga clan, Hinata was raised to be its heiress and her family expected great things from her. But even at a young age, her father came to believe that Hinata was not suited for the role of heiress, as she struggled under his gruesome training regime, on top of him also believing that her timid personality prevented her from truly excelling.
When Hinata’s younger sister Hanabi started displaying superior talent, Hiashi began to reconsider Hinata’s selection as heiress. In the anime, Hinata and Hanabi were pitted against each other to determine who would one day lead the Hyūga. Because Hinata was unwilling to harm Hanabi – a hesitation Hanabi did not share – she was defeated, disappointing her father. Hinata was then disinherited and turned over to the care of Kurenai Yūhi.
On a snowy day – the day of her enrolment in Konoha’s Academy – Hinata was picked on by three bullies because of her unusual eyes. Naruto Uzumaki, despite not knowing her, immediately came to her defence, but he was outnumbered and knocked unconscious, and the bullies damaged the red scarf he was wearing. When he regained consciousness, Hinata thanked him for helping her and returned his scarf to him, but he let her keep it. Hinata started watching Naruto from that point onwards, and by doing so saw Naruto’s desire to gain attention and his struggle to exceed the low expectations others had for him.
Despite this, Naruto never lost faith in himself or his dream to become the Hokage. Hinata was inspired by this and started emulating Naruto, adopting his refusal to never give up as a means of earning her father’s approval. In the anime, Hinata’s growing affections for Naruto were noticed by the Hyūga’s elders, who warned her to stay away from him.
Hinata is soft-spoken and polite, always addressing people with proper honourifics. She is kind, always thinking of others’ more than for herself, and always caring about others feelings and well-being. She doesn’t like to be confrontational for any reason; she doesn’t even like being confrontational about her dislike of confrontation. It is for this reason that Hinata so often comes off as meek or timid to others, as her overwhelming kindness can render her unable to respond or act for fear of offending somebody. Her father’s constant push to alter this personality trait when she was younger only made it worse, eroding Hinata’s self-confidence and making her even more bashful because she placed so little faith in her own thoughts and opinions.
Hinata’s outlook sees a shift after her appointment to Team 8. Whereas her father and much of the Hyūga clan had decided she was a lost cause who would never amount to anything, her team considers her a valuable member with her own special strong points: Kurenai Yūhi recognises Hinata’s difficult upbringing and her struggles to improve, and for that reason focuses on Hinata’s successes rather than her failures; Kiba Inuzuka is protective of her, wishing to keep her from harm and playfully teases her about her personality quirks; Shino Aburame, though often even more quiet than Hinata, is confident in her abilities and does not hesitate to reassure her.
When she first joins Team 8, she finds herself over-relying on her teammates, looking to them in times of difficulty to save her from situations that make her uncomfortable. It is for her teammates – among other reasons – that Hinata starts seeking to change herself, as she wishes to help the team rather than burden it.
Hinata’s main motivation is Naruto Uzumaki, with whom she has been fascinated since meeting him. He initially gained her attention because of his outspoken kindness, and then kept her attention because of similarities that Hinata perceived to herself: Naruto had a painful childhood without the love of parents, a fate worse than the mere difficulty she had with her own father, and he craves the attention and acknowledgement of anybody, just as Hinata wants to please her father. But whereas Hinata lost faith in herself and let others tell her she couldn’t succeed, Naruto always believes in himself and knows that he can accomplish any given task if he tries hard enough. She admires him deeply for this courage and over time falls in love with him, which manifests as increased shyness and speechlessness when around him. Although most people understand the reason for Hinata’s behaviour around Naruto, Naruto himself thinks it’s just Hinata’s normal, if “weird”, personality.
Hinata strives to improve herself in order to benefit her team and to prove herself to her father, but mostly to gain the attention and worthiness of Naruto. She emulates him to this purpose, adopting his nindō of never giving up as the means by which she will change herself. To that end, she stops running from confrontation, instead doing all that she can to face it. If she fails, she gets up again and trains herself to not fail a second time. Hinata initially can only manage to practice this nindō when Naruto is nearby, but even then it is rewarding: she is able to speak her mind to him, for which he decides his view of her as “weird” was incorrect. By the end of Part I, she even displays it when Naruto is not around, for which reason her father’s and the Hyūga clan’s faith in her is restored and strengthened.
