DescriptionThe story goes that my mom got me CCS sticker cards when I was about 8, the card with Sakura in her first season opening dress was my favorite. I remember being so amazed by it that I wanted to be just like her. (I still have that deck of cards LOL)
Last year I went on a clamp marathon and I said to myself it was time to make my childhood dream come true. This cosplay made me glad that I started this hobby. It means a lot to me and I'm really happy that I finally did it.
I made sure I didn't BS my way through this costume. I wanted to make it as accurate as possible. The skirt I wore under the dress has three layers and I still don't think it was puffy enough. I might want do one more photoshoot for this with actual cherry blossoms.
The staff is made with green foam (bad idea, it's not meant for craft, it makes a big mess and nothing sticks on it) coated with a layer of paper clay (very bad idea, it cracks like hell) finished with Mod Podge (super bad idea, glue gun doesn't work on it and I had so much trouble sticking the wings on).
