Cosplayer LyddiDesign > Costume of Sakura Kinomoto from Card Captor Sakura
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- Most of this costume is made of out cotton stretch sateen, my favorite fabric! The main coral pink dress fabric was dyed by me. The most complicated parts were the tutu underneath for verticality (which I made like a real pancake tutu) and the custom edging. The tutu took quite awhile to make and has 10 layers of tulle, a cotton basque, and real hooping. For the edging I used a scallop stich on my machine and rotated it to get the arcs. This is everywhere: the sleeves, neckline, petticoat, tutu layers, gloves, tights, even the bloomers! I made everything myself EXCEPT for the base shoes, Clow wand, and Kero-Chan.

- Personal Thoughts:
- Sakura is so cuuuuute!
- Styling Notes
- All I had to do was cut the bangs and add thin wefts to the sides.
- Wig Review
- The cut was perfect for Sakura (only bang cut needed), quality great as always, though I'd go with a darker color.
