Sakura (kimono) - Naruto


Fuyucon 2007


Looking through old photos on photobucket, i came across this cosplay that not many people know about.

I always liked this version of Sakura and when i found out there was going to be a con in my home town I wanted a cosplay that was fit for the ball/dance that was being held on the Sunday night.

This was alot harder then it looked to make even with the pattern. I really thought I wouldn't have it done in time but my mum helped me get it finished, by working on it when I was at the convention for me. X_X
I decided to go with a darker red then the cherry red her Kimono is ment be be due to it looking better on meat the time. XD

This was a time before i discovered wigs and though pink hair spray was enough, but in my defence it was my first con and was just getting into cosplay at the time.
But looking back I remember all the great times I had and if it wasn't for the convention I wouldn't have meet some of the great people I know today ^_^

At Aerblade: Yeah it brings back so many memories for me, and it was only a few months after that, that we got to meet for the first time. :D (Tokyopop recon thingy that was held at Namsoc in the other hall lol) and thanks, i might get it out one day just to get some more photos in it. As this is the only one i have :( And yeah this was one of the first ever cosplays i made(along with the red dress and kakashi with my mums help) and it was so annoying to make but I learnt alot by working on it :)
