General Comments:

I went into Gekkan without any expectations and ended up loving it. The series is absolutely hilarious and I love all of the characters. I had just about everything I needed for Sakura (I justed need to buy the wig and the stuff for the blazer) so I added Sakura as a last minute addition to my AUSA 2014 lineup.

Costume Construction:

Blazer: The blazer is unlined (because I'm super lazy) and is made out of a polyester suiting. The patch was purchased on Etsy.

White Shirt: The white button down was made out of a plain cotton.

Skirt: The skirt was made out of fabric that I bought on sale a while back (I don't remember specifically what it is).

Bows: The blue bow was made out of galaxy twill scraps. The hair bows were made out of fabric I'd purchased a few years back on a whim at a thrift shop. The hair bows have a layer of quilting batting in them in order to give them a more poofy look.

Misc: I already owned the thigh highs and shoes.

Wig Styling:

The wig was purchased on Milanoo. The bangs and wig were trimeed.
