13th May 2012: Final check* Here is a preview of me wearing the outfit! (I'll be attaching the wings to my back on the day*) Roll on expo!!
13th May 2012: Hat This was a hat previously worn for another version of the outfit I had before. Since I've retired the manga outfit, I decided to paint it a darker colour to match the dress and top as much as possible. I also cut the ends of the bow to match the reference pictures. There are still a few patchy areas after using a wet sponge but still looks good from a distance! XD
5th May 2012: Wand head WIP 1 This is what happens when you don't buy enough fimo. XD
So I first started off molding together 6 pieces of different coloured fimo, It won't really matter what colour they are since i'll be painting it all at the end. (shame I was hoping to make the feathers out of the pearlised white lol). Ah well, I'm continuing to make it look like the clow wand head as much as possible..
5th May 2012: Wings I had these completed already for the last time I was this sakura, however when I thought it was right to give them a wash the material started to worry around the edges. I had to mend these parts a little and ended up adding hot glue all around to make more of an outline. They should be ok now and shouldn't be hard to attach to the outfit. ^^
5th May 2012: Dress WIP 2 Here is just a view of the dress contents. ^^
5th May 2012: Wand head WIP 3 Here it is cooked! All that's left to do is to fit it onto the dowel, once it's cut to size. I may have to add a little abit more fimo to the top of the head to even out the size if I have time, then begin painting it and attaching the feather sides to it.
5th May 2012: Wand head WIP 4 Here is just a view of what i've done so far. ^^
5th May 2012: Wand feathers I began to make these while the head was cooking in the oven. The feathers are made from white card, (I may change them to foam instead if I have time) and the red eyes are made from my sailor moon odango shields I bought a few years back, (they kind'a got broken so I'm now using them for this.)
5th May 2012: Wand head WIP 2 This was the point where I could see if it would suit the dowel (it hasn't been cut to size yet btw lol). While I was doing this I began adding all the fimo I had left to the head, evenly around the back and mouth of the design. After that, I made the hole inside larger for it to sit on the extended rear parts of the dowel (which I need to buy more fimo for).
5th May 2012: Dress WIP 1 Ok, this took me a few attemps to get it this colour, I'm talking fabric spray: fail, Fabric Dye and paint with wet sponge: kind'a worked.. from what you see here. XD It is still a little patchy up close on the skirt, so I may have to add another coat on the other side when I get more paint. This is made up of a light pink tank top and a light weight skirt (that isn't the kind of material that likes to be dyed or sprayed on!) Once everything is nice and red it'll be ready for wire around the edges for it to stand up on. The hat will get the same paint treatment soon.
16th March 2012: Petticoat WIP 3 This is how it turned out after I attached the whole thing to the belt! :D (if you can make it out in the picture ^^;) I first had to stitch wire onto the waist part to make it more secure, then I stitched and hot glued the petticoat onto the belt in a zig-zag shape and added an extra layer of lace to give that lolita finish. X3 So, my next and final task will be to cover all the messy work showing and add velcro/invisible thread for extra support keeping the ballerina dress standing! >D Its nearly done MWAHAHA! XDDD
15th March 2012: Petticoat WIP 2 A little hard to put the wire onto the edges but, I did it! lol Just incase the pink dress fails to cover the whole sign of duck tape underneith, i'm hoping some paint or material will XD (that will be included in my next task). The last thing to do is simple, just attach this onto the belt in the picture.
6th March 2012: Petticoat WIP 1 Here is the start of my petticoat! >D
The original plan was to make it from one single piece of A1 card and make another for the second layer, but since it turned up smaller than expected (XD)I used both pieces to make one layer attached with duck tape (for now).

I love that you have Kero on your shoulder, so cute. But I think the eye make-up is too dark for Sakura's age.
Zedela - 2nd November 2010

This costume of Sakura's have been cosplayed so many times and yet I never seen anyone who has did this version as accurate as yours. I especially like the poof of the dress, it's so spot on.
Zedela - 30th May 2012
Thank you so much Lai-chan X3 I wasn't sure it would work at first lol. Same here, I kept on looking for good cosplays around the internet of the costume and I did find a really accurate one who had the lolita poof in her dress that inspired me. X3
