So I wanted to share my Cardcaptor Sakura: The Sealed Card cosplay. It was my first major undertaking in creating a cosplay from scratch. This gown was a huge learning curve in pattern alterations and sewing.
In my eyes, it’s not perfect and I am working on fixing the gown and redoing the star wand. I apologize, I don’t have many photos of this costume. But I will probably be doing a photo shoot in the near future with it, once I fix it up.
Here are some shots 😀
The Accessories I made included: Kero, The Nothing & Hope Card, The Star Wand (The Wings Broke) and Sakura’s Egg Backpack
I am so thankful I had my styling kit with me! I used double-sided fashion tape for the ribbons to keep them in the place, and I wore stockings which helped create a good base for the tape. I think the most challenging part of the entire costume was getting the shape of the skirt and the neckline was a definite trial and error.
One Problem: My darling Fiance stepped on the back of my gown and the zipper split up the back. Once again thank goodness for my kit and quilters safety pins and for the fact it happened towards the end of the day! In the images above there is a shot from the back, you can see the pins holding it together. I was also grateful that the backpack hid the rip!
All in all it was really fun and a lot of people enjoyed my costume which I was super excited for!
I will share updates later once I get this fixed up 😀
