I have no idea if somebody has done it before, but that shouldn't stop you.

There are a few things in your favour on that costume: very limited boobage, and short pants under the skirt.

What I'd do is to build it with two or three commercial patterns. Go to a good fabric store and check their pattern catalogs looking for something with a similar shape to the shorts, the dress/skirt and the cape.

The biggest labour will be to sew all that gold trim, but when you get to that point most of the costume will be ready by then.

Glove making is tricky. See if you can find them done at a bridal store. You'd save some trouble that way.

Also, if your sewing skills are limited I'd hire someone or start with something simpler.

Best of luck...

Ok, thanks! I've got someone who can sew the outfit for me... I just gotta get the nerve to tell my mom that I'm going to crossplay. (I have no idea what she will say, knowing her...)

EDIT: Could someone tell me where I could find a hat or staff like that in the outfit ^_^ Thanks!

I think Merle-kun has done Sakura before. Probably you want to check out his website.

lol, I was coming into this thread to post my link, but it looks like I don't have to! Thanks Kilvear ^^ But here's a direct link just in case lazy people are reading =3

http://merlekun.kumagoro.net/Cosplay-Sakura.php

This wasn't really a planned costume. I got the short brown wig for Yuffie and figured out one day that I had a Sakura costume with using that wig, roller blades, and some of my CCS toys =3 Originally, I wasn't going to take her to a con, but she made it to AnimeUSA in 2002 =3

Originally, my only intent was to cosplay Tomoyo =3

Sorry mine isn't near the detail of what you want to do, it's just the school uniform =3

I'd look for a hat of similar size and shape and sew/hot glue the pink fabric on top.

Luck...

If you need costume tips, go to the anime costumes forum. ^_^; Crossplay forum is for making yourself more feminine or masculine depending on the crossplay. For Sakura, you don't need to stuff yourself because she's a flat ten year old, so there's not too much to worry about except for makeup.

Indeed, Michi, you're right.

But visual references from other crossplays are always welcome ^_^ I think that's one of the purposes of this thread.
