Tomoyo - CardCaptor Sakura
Debut: Anime Mid-Atlantic 2009; This costume has been sold.
Cost of materials: $30
CardCaptor Sakura is one of the most endearing shows I've ever seen. It was the second anime I watched and I simply adored Sakura and her friend Tomoyo and all of the cute little outfits they had. My friends didn't have to bend my arm much to join their CCS group; in fact, I asked them if I could join in as Tomoyo!
I picked out a lovely cornflower blue cotton for the dress, and I used little yellow star buttons for the buttons on the front and cuffs. The collar and cuffs are detailed with white Casa satin. I wished I had had time to make an actual felt Cloche hat, but the fabric hat looks just as cute. I already owned the wig, shoes, gloves, and petticoat, so this was a rather easy costume to make. I am overjoyed that I could cosplay from such a wonderful show ^.^
