Cosplayer Tohma > Costume of Yue from Card Captor Sakura
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- The wings are ostrich feathers on a pvc frame that I used heat to bend upwards. I chose ostrich because I felt Yue's wings should be more ethereal then normal looking wings considering he is the Moon Guardian. The ostrich gives the wings a light and airy look and feel.
They slide into a corset based harness that I constructed. The corset is made so that I can use it to bind down while also supporting the wing structure. The harness itself is built into it. I used the metal bands that go around wood that I got from the Lowe's trash can.
The outfit is cotton and all the blue detailing is resin. The purple is all dance wear knit. The wig is a combination of a silver/white 3 foot wig and a 4 foot wig extension purchased from Epic Cosplay.
- Personal Thoughts:
- This has been a dream costume of mine for a very long time. Perhaps from the moment I started to cosplay. CCS was one of the first anime's I ever saw as I casually watched it over my college roommate's shoulder as she watched it. This anime could very well have been the start of my CLAMP obsession.
