cardcaptor sakura authenticity

so i have a slight problem.

i am making this dress for my sakura cosplay.

its one of her first dresses earlier in the anime and she had the staff at this time (bird looking wand)

but i was wondering if i could use her star wand instead.

would some hardcore cardcaptor fans come down on me for mixing and matching?
i have no problem making the other i just like her star wand better.

If I saw it in a photo, I'd think it's a little strange, but if you want to, why not.
its 2015 and i still miss the journal function on this website :(

I don't think you'd have any problem with it. It's a pretty old anime and most wouldn't realize that they don't fit anyway. Plus, the star wand 'does' look better imo. lol

I would notice that the staff and dress don't "match" and maybe wonder why you chose the one you did but I wouldn't mind. It wouldn't change my opinion on the costume at all.
upcoming events:

Zenkaikon '16

currently working on:

Kore wa Zombie desu ka? - Eucliwood
Madoka Magica - Homura Akemi
Star Vs the Forces of Evil - Star Butterfly

Plus repairs and improvements on numerous costumes!!

At the end of the day, it's your cosplay, you can do what you want with it. Such a small change wouldn't make much of a difference. It's just a wand after all.
Take Sailor Moon for example, I see people cosplaying say Eternal Sailor Moon and carries the Spiral Heart Rod (seen this exact mismatch before). But it doesn't matter. I'm pretty sure hundreds of cosplayers have mixed and match between different things for a set character.

~Future/Planned Cosplays~
Sera Myu Eternal Sailor Moon - Sera Myu Musicals - 95%
Mew Berry (Café version) - Tokyo Mew Mew Á la Mode
Usagi Tsukino (School Uniform) - Sailor Moon
Sailor Cosmos - Sailor Moon Sailor Stars
Bubbles - Powerpuff Girls Z

honestly, being a cardcaptor fan, it would bug me, because sakura has a certain wand at a certain time peroid.

however, i did have her old wand with the 2nd movie dress. but that was just to make me realize who I was

I'm a ccs fan, so I'd notice and wonder why, but it wouldn't really bug me. It's your costume after all. (;
Edit: dang, sorry, didn't notice the thread was so old XD

As a CCS fan, it would bother me. It's your cosplay, so in the end you have to do what you want to do, but I think you should stick to the original. Besides~ the bird wand is so much cuter. :3
