I greatly enjoyed bringing these iconic characters from a classic Japanese animation to life. The designs by CLAMP are simple looking, but require clean lines an precision to execute.
I had to create a massive petticoat crinoline to put under this dress, which is a 1.5 circle skirt--and even then, it could have been even pouffier. All of the garments for both characters I patterned from scratch myself. The wings are upholstery foam with a fabric cover over a wire under structure.
I built Sakura's magic wand myself. It is made from a wooden dowel, with a sculpted head made of insulation foam and apoxie sculpt.
