Sakura Kinomoto (Thunder Card) - Cardcaptor Sakura/Cardcaptors


Kitacon Karnival

Doki Doki Festival 2015 Cosplay Championships - First Place


I loooved Cardcaptors as a kid, and the revival of CCS's popularity makes me so happy! The outfit Sakura wears when capturing the Thunder Card has always been my favourite, it's just so freaking cute!

In the series, the outfit is canonically made from lightning resistant materials like rubber, but I think I'll make mine from thick scuba to get the look/texture I want, but not the discomfort/smell of rubber haha!
Sadly scuba doesn't exist in the princess pink I wanted, and neoprene is far too expensive for my current budget, so I've gone for the bright pink as seen on the scale figure and in some of the artwork.

Both the dresses are made from scuba, and the skirts are hemmed with thick horsehair braid for ultimate poof. The ruffles on the apron dress and bow tails were done by gathering fabric along lengths of plastic boning, and the bow on the back has hella interfacing to keep shape. Underneath the two dresses are two petticoats,one which is a double circle skirt of chiffon, and one which is a monster of three 6m strips of gathered tulle in between two circle skirts, and horsehair braid supports. The tail is shaped with a coat hanger, so I can re-curve it if I want to!

The wig is a Coscraft 'Prince' in toffee, with chestnut wefts sewn in.

I commissioned the wand head and tip from Chompworks, and painted them myself


DOKIDOKI: For a test run of the cosplay, I've so so happy with how it turned out! The petticoat kept deflating throughout the day due to the weight of the skirts, so I'm going to make a second tulle monster and some poofy bloomers for next time c: jingle jingle~

It's so nice to finally see pictures of this, I love it! I love the texture the scuba fabric gives it, it brings such good drape as well.

Extra stuff for CLAMP day

I FINALLY treated myself to the Chompworks clow wand set, and got a really good deal on a raw print of it! With a bit of sanding and some primer, it'll be ready to paint c: I also bought some more pink tulle and some extra wide horsehair braid to boost the petticoat! The braid is to make supports with, which is a little trick I learned from making the Madoka poofmonster c:
