I have always loved Sakura and had decided for this to be my first cosplay. I have most of it planned out, so I should be done in a month of two simply because this is my first cosplay and I'm still learning.

Re-making (Posted 17th October 2011)
I've decided to go ahead and just remake the skirt. I'm doing so with some lighter cotton. I'm not sure how it will turn out.
I just bought the boots I'll be modifying for the outfit.
Unfortunately, I've lost the pattern I need to complete the spandex shorts... I must find it in order to move on...
Skirt Mistakes... (Posted 2nd October 2011)
For future reference, if I ever re-make this costume, the first thing I'll change will be the material I use for the skirt and arm bands. I used a stretch material that was extremely appropriate for the bands and was very comfortable, but it was much to thick and stretchy for the skirt - if I can somehow straighten out the zipper, it'll be fine.
Also, next time, I would make the skirt a bit longer and just shorten it as needed. This one turned out a bit too short.
Shirt Finished (Posted 1st October 2011)
For the past couple of months, I've been working on this costume. Right now, I have the shirt completely finished and am working on the skirt. All that remains for the skirt is the zippers to be installed and the buckles - basically just putting it together. I have all the necessary materials now for the skirt and shall promptly finish it.
Next, I think I'll begin working on kunai props. I have some materials to work with that will at least get me started.
