Description
I chose to cosplay as Sakura because I think she's a great character in TRC and I really like her Clow Country outfit. :)

I followed the ref pic exactly apart from a few small things and am really happy with the result! And Lady Bahamut made an awesome Syaoran on the day! ^__^

I love main design on the shirt and the skirt's pink pattern. I hated sewing on the black and gold ribbon around the circumference of the skirt though (so...much...ribbon... o_o") XD Surprisingly, the headband took ages (...just realised you can only see the headband in 2 photos, lol!). Parts of the "jewellery" on the skirt fell off throughout the day, which was expected ^^

I'll probably cosplay as Sakura again some time :D

You look so adorable as Sakura & I agree with Hannah-Kiwii that you have the perfect look for the character. I love the colours and the way you made the darker pink circles on the top look 3D.
