Sakura Kasugano from Sreet Fighter
Event(s): LouisiANIME 2010
Oh man, this costume. The photos. Everything about it. It’s miserable, haha. I love, love, love Street Fighter and or course, I love, love, love all the ladies– Sakura being my favorite!
I originally ordered a stupid, sexy school girl uniform off eBay and decided, I really didn’t like how sexy it was. (It was just the only one I could find!) So, I cut the collar and sleeve pieces off and sewed them onto a white T-shirt which, as you can see, I hemmed terrible to go over my belly button, haha. The collar box is the return of the yellow satin which I’m still confident I cut out of something I already owned.
I had borrowed the headband from a friend who had (for some reason) gotten it commissioned fro a seamstress instead of just buying ribbon. The hands are my favorite part, at this point in time, finding those fighting gloves was incredibly hard, so we gave up on finding them all together. Instead, I decided to wrap my hands, which the guy cosplaying Ryu insisted was dumb. It wasn’t dumb! I got nothing but compliments for my creativity, haha.
Fun fact: My hair is disgusting! I’m not sure the last time I had washed it, but it’s definitely really unwashed in all of those photos.
