Costume Information

Description
Well, who can agree that Ichigo-Chan's cosplay list will not be the same without regular Sakura cosplays, which means this costume is a MUST!!!! I've been meaning to make this cosplay ever since I saw the artwork on the Japanese season 2 DVD boxset, but was never confident in making kimono's. A good example of my failed kimono is my Sakura Taisen cosplay back in 2007. This year I want to stop believing in my failures as we all live and learn.

I am putting this costume next in the Sakura costume line after when I complete Sakura's CLAMP in 3D land costume.

I am hoping this costume will be either for London Expo October 2011 or May 2012, however I am putting another costume over the priority as I am itching to make a costume suitable for a cosplay ball, so most likely and DEFINITELY this will be for May 2012.

Pattern arrived! (Posted 13th March 2011)

I recieved the pattern through the post a couple of days ago and I will be pretty much using it for the sleeves and the top half of the kinomo. I want the obi to be massive and the bottom of the kinomo to be poofy and the pattern does not statisfy these conditions, so need to figure out a way to make my own pattern and modify.

Pattern brought! (Posted 3rd March 2011)

I have found a kimono paper pattern quite a while back for a reasonable price of £5.65 + £0.75 P+P, don't know why I only just decided to buy it today. I suppose, if I never get started on buying the materials then this costume will never get done!
