Description
This is my second cosplay which I made to accompany my Li Syaron cosplay which I made for my friend. I had so many costumes to choose from but because I knew this was going to be the last time that I was going to cosplay Sakura and I have allways wanted to do this outfit since I first saw the opening a few years back.

The costume was really easy to make, which was handy considering that I only had a week left to do it. (I had made 3 other outfits for friends by this point XD Curse me and my nature to agree to anything!)

I don't really use patterns for any of my costumes, I just cut, sew and hope it looks like something. Most of the time this works for me because my mind plans it out for me somehow.

I learned how to make a poofy tutu! I also learned that I can work well under pressure ^-^

When I wore it at the expo I got a better response from it than I thought I would because I spent more time on the other costumes. I was really nervous about the masquerade (as it was my first one) but it seemed to go ok as the audience cheered and stuff :)

I didn't win anything for the costume but it didn't surprise me, but this costume has really inspired me to go on and make bigger and better costumes!

I remember you! Your costume was amazing ^-^

I think I was offering everyone sweets when I got off stage :D

The wings took me a while, I had to cut out each feather from paper XD

I have seen the video on youtube and I was glad that it didn't turn out too bad :)
