9th March 2016: Finished Finished everything for Sakura.
Shorts are made from my own pattern with cotton and wadding and used poppers to attach them to the leotard. Will be adding more poppers so the shorts feel more secure near the front.
Just needs some adjustments but she is done!
I hand sewed most of this so my hands hurt.
3rd March 2016: Progress Best way to show my progress for Sakura. Currently finishing the wig and gloves are done, just not in shot.
Only need to make the yellow shorts and iron everything.
The cloaks are made from duchess satin with a cotton lining, and the bow is made from cotton with pom poms attached at the ends.
29th February 2016: Hat My first attempt on the hat was too small and just looked awful. So on my second attempt I made it bigger and looks so much better! I'll need to take it in the back.
It won't look perfectly round because of the stuffed yellow parts but it will do.
Made from duchess satin and cotton.
29th February 2016: Shoes Found old shoes that I decided to fix up and paint. Painted a few layers of white to cover the original design and added the pink details. Added yellow laces and made two bows from cotton fabric with pom poms.
29th February 2016: Thigh highs Finding thigh high socks for my huge thighs is never an easy task, or cheap for that matter. So did some experimenting and decide to get knee high socks and attach leg warmers at the top for the ribbed effect. And they sit ok!
This is more of a bright/dark purple than Sakura's, but it was a challenge to find a colour that was perfect without it being nearly grey. Searching for those perfect colours for this cosplay is hard!
29th February 2016: Wig and makeup I ordered the Lily in chestnut brown from Coscraft and started styled by trimming the front and shortening the back, and tying small elastic bands in the centre.
The make up is kept simple and fresh with false eyelashes.
