En guarde! by Jayuna
En guarde!
I've always dreamed of using my fencing sabre as a prop in cosplay, but it was only a last minute idea that I brought it along to Otakuthon with me for my shoot in old Montreal... and boy I'm glad I did!!

Cosplay: 'Prince' Sakura Kinomoto from Cardcaptor Sakura
Photo by Elemental Photography at Otakuthon 2014

Costume entirely made by me (including the hat!) for Costume Con 32 in April. Originally completed with a Shaoran, we decided to fancy these up for CC and the creative freedom that created made this endeavour a very enjoyable one! Costume mostly made from dupioni silk and the cape made from a good quality lining to allow it the movement I wanted. All gems were resin cast by me and the rhinestones are a mix of swarovski and resin.

Thanks for looking!

Prince Sakura
Having Costume-Con (a travelling conference all about costuming I highly highly recommend going to if it's ever in your area) come to Toronto again has been a big deal around here, and when thinking of possible costume ideas, a friend of mine had the fantastic idea to cosplay the ridiculous prince-princess crossdressing outfits of Sakura and Syaoran from Cardcaptor Sakura but many the fancy as all heck! I said yes immediately~

Making Sakura was a lot of fun in being slightly creative in how to do it and make it fancy. I immediately thought of making the bulk of the costume out of dupioni silk... and boy I'm glad I did! So worth the money, and the vibrant colours I picked were perfect~ 

Only time a pattern was used and then modified was for the hat, made up of crazy thick interfacing + fosshape and covered in my silk. Otherwise all patterns were drafted by me. This was also baby's first resin casting adventure, and I'm super happy with how the gems turned out! Other interesting things: these bloomers are actually two! Becuase I only had a finite amount of ivory dupioni to use and I wanted the bloomers to be crazy poofy like they appear in the image, there's a pair of cotton bloomers made from 4 metres of starched cotton underneith the silk pair. as a set of 'bloomer petticoat' as it were. The ruffles at the end of the jacket and the collar + cravat are also all attached to a shirt underneith made from a thick jersey. Finally, the cape is all crazy gathered from 4 yards of lining and hand stitched all along the top of the jacket to have it stay in and be giant and awesome.

My syaoran is grumblyowl on tumblr as well~

Hi All!!!! :D

Oh gosh I'm so sorry with how long its been... essentially my work on my M.Sc has eaten my life!! 

Just wanted to let people know of a new page I've started on facebook!! I thought it would be good to finaly start something there as a portfolio tool and to also separate some of my cosplay from my personal account as I apply for new schooling in the fall~

You can find me here!! :D~

I'll be much more active there than here, so if you've interested in costumes I'm planning, things I'm currently working on, and general awesome, you can head over there if you'd like! :)

I've got just one final tomorrow and my GRE on thursday, so it's going to be a busy week before I can relax for Christmas. But I hope no matter what you believe, you have a safe, happy, and fun holiday season <3 (and if you're still studying for finals like me, all the luck on them!)

Much love!
