Costume Information

Cost : £70-80
Time Taken : Probably about 1 month spread over 4.

For Anyone who is not Up-to Date with this manga I shall Try not to spoil too much.. Recently this costume has had alot more meaning and I feel that it warrents a cosplay.

PLus is kindof simpler than some of my previous projects *cough* *Seth* *Cough* and I feel Like a break!

I am tempted to make a matching pair of wings, Tsubasa wings, they kindof look like ribbons magically floating out of sakuras back...... hmmm... I've seen an american cosplayer do it...

Update: I've finished doing the costume sketches for this costume, I have also already chosen the fabrics I am going to be using.

I am currently in the process of designing the wings structure and harness, Which will probably be based around a underbust corset.

EDIT: Wings aint gonna happen... But so far its looking good! Few More things to do now! Mainly beadwork and Hemming..... :S

Update: All done, I look forward to wearing this at the expo ^_^

This costume is so lovely and beautiful I'm afraid I'm not very far in the Tsubasa story but I love most - if not all - of Sakura's dresses both in the story and in artbook pictures! This dress is made of win! Can't wait to see it in person! :D

Your hands look freezing in the snow photos but it's worth it. Snow covering sakura trees don't come by often!

Suffering for your art, gawsh! It really did pay off though, you look very regal and beautiful (as well as very emo, young lady XD)
