Chinese dress

Cardcaptor Sakura: The Movie

Last Updated: 10-29-2010

I decided to do the Chinese dress Sakura wears in the first movie when she visits the Li family. It's not identical as I decided to just use a red, chinese looking brocade. I have material to do Melin and Tomoyo this way as well, but have yet to do it.

The wig is the same as the one I used for her Winter School Uniform. I changed the hair ties to jade ones. I found these really beautiful jade beads and used them to make the hair ties. It was my first time making this from scratch and I loved it.

The shirt is made from a phoenix and dragon red and gold broacade. I saw the material and knew it was destined for Sakura. I wore it to Mile Hi Con this past weekend and was informed that my dragon was an Imperial dragon due to it's five toes. Appearently the toes determine what type of dragon it is. Three-common dragon, Four-royal dragon and Five-imperial dragon. After finding this out, I thought it was fitting I chose this for Sakura . I used a gold ribbon to trim the top. Mom made the top and I hand sewed the ribbon on. The frog clasps at the neck and sides of the shirt are painted gold and hand sewen on. I couldn't find gold so, I painted white ones. Guess what I can now find everywhere. Yup, gold frog clasps. Seems to be my luck. The keyhole in the neckline we had to modify and didn't turn out to bad in my opinion.

The pants were an awsome find at a thrift store. Mom and I havn't had the best of luck with pants and were not going to try them at the last minute. They not only ended up the right length but had a nice little nick in the side of the leg.

The shoes are just simple gold ones I found lying around. I'm hoping to find red ones at some point and maybe trim them in gold.

The Key of Clow, around my neck, I made out of sculpy and put on a brown ribbon. It's the same one I wear with my Winter School Uniform.

Over all I love this cosplay and it is a fun adition to my CCS collection. :D
