Kushina Uzumaki from Naruto
When I saw the flashback for Kushina's past, I instantly fell in love with her! She's a tough girl, and her love story with Minato is a heartwarming one. I also knew a local Minato cosplayer, BandButters, and he seemed interested in cosplaying this together when I asked him.
