Sakura Wars
Soletta Orihime

The most difficult thing about the dress (aside from getting the hem the right height and level) was sewing the approximately 5,127 yards of fabric which made up the ruffles. The top ruffle has elastic tacked around the inside, so that it snugly hugs the upper shoulders. The earrings were challenging as well, since they had a string of beads at the bottom which looped under the earlobe. A pearl necklace, a golden hairclip and a black lace pair of gloves completed this cosplay ensemble.
