When I got into Naruto, Sakura was the first female character I liked. Even when I didn't like her that much at the beggining.
I feel related with her, and Naruto became one of my favorites mangas, so I decide to cosplay her.
This dress was totally HAND SEWN and with no pattern. Full lined. It took us (my mother and I) a lot of months, but I'm really happy and proud of the result.
The sandals was kind of hard for me to make.
The hair color was another problem, the hair dye I use was more kind of fuxia than pink, so it took a couple of weeks to finally get pink.
I was part of a big Naruto team with my friends, and we won in masquerade, that was great ^^
Sakura became one of my favorite characters. I want to cosplay as much of her outfits.
