|After cosplaying as Sakura in her series 1 battle outfit, I decided to make her kinomo because I loved the kinomo design and the character is more recongisable in this costume.|
This costume was made in a huge rush because I only managed to finish half an hour before I was due to debut this costume. I did big mistakes on the sleeves because firstly it was too short and it just looked totally wrong, but anyway it's not too bad for a last minute thing.
The bow hair tie & sword was the same as the one I've used for my series 1 battle costume. I can't be bothered to write out the info on how I put these props/accessories again, so look in my battle costume info.
The obi was not a difficult thing to make, but making the bow stick out was a little tricky. I had to sew the ends of the bow on the waist line to make it stick out, but I'm going to improve on this.
I am planning to improve on this costume and hopefully it will debut again at some point. List of improvements...
~ Make the bow hair tie again and stiffen it with hemp
~ Stiffen the obi with hemp
~ Possibly make an attachment, so my sword cover will stay around my waist
~ Make the sleeves again
~ Make the gloves
