A really simple costume at first sight, but the most important thing for me is what it represents in terms of development for the character of Sakura and as a symbol of the enormous twist in TRC's plot. Initially, I was just going to "recycle" stuff I already owned (as I did when I made it as a closet-cosplay the very moment I saw her in the manga XD), but when I realized one of the color images showed that her cloak was actually white and I wouldn't be able to use my boyfriend's green Syaoran cloak, I realized I had to be more attentive to detail than what I had expected.
I had lots of fun painting my black pistol and applying a soft weathering effect on it. The most important yet most difficult part was, without a doubt, all those belts attached between them, to the handbag and to the holster, which I didn't manage to keep in place any of the times I wore this costume T__T They were either too lose and fell or too tight and broke, I hope I can fix them someday u_u
