Card Captor Sakura: Kinomoto Sakura 04

card captor sakura cosplay - kinomoto sakura 04

A 10-year-old girl from Tomoeda, Japan, Sakura finds a mysterious book entitled “The Clow” in her father’s study. There, she awakens the book’s guardian, Cerberus, and find out that the book once contained 19 powerful, magical cards. Cerberus then enlists Sakura to become the card captor in order to reclaim the cards that were lost.

That is the story of the manga, of course. The anime has a different interpretation.

So pretty this cosplayer is from Winter Comiket! She’s definitely the older version of little Sakura, but I don’t think anyone is complaining! Thanks to Yumi for sending this in!

Card Captor Sakura: Kinomoto Sakura 02 and 03

Thursday, November 20th, 2008

These girls are probably among the cutest cosplayers I’ve ever seen.

Featuring the student Kinomoto Sakura and the Card Captor Sakura! I love the little wings on Card Captor Sakura’s back, and their hats too! I’m not sure, but they could be sisters, or even twins. I wish there was a larger version of this picture so we can see their faces better, but this was the best that I could come up with.

How do you think they fair with the other Sakura cosplayer?

By the way, I’ve opened up   a Blogger account that has the same content as my Sanriotown one. Why you ask? It’s because I’ve been seeing a lot of blogspot blogs that have been taking my content without crediting me. I’ve ranted about this before, and even though most of the pictures are not mine, I’d still prefer to be credited when they’ve obviously taken my pictures and content.

My thanks to everyone supporting my blog(s)! Oh, and please answer the poll I have in コスプレイ. Thank you~!

Card Captor Sakura: Yue

card captor sakura cosplay - yue

The second guardian of the Clow Cards, Yue is the judge who determines whether or not the new master Cerberus chooses is worthy to be his master. Just as Cerberus is the Guardian of the Sun, Yue is known as the Guardian of the Moon, and controls the wind and water. He exists as a human in the form of Tsukishiro Yukito, a close friend of Kinomoto Sakura’s brother Touya.

Alright, alright, obviously he’s missing his wings, but I still find this cosplay to be very impressive. A nice touch with the Clow Cards, really.

Card Captor Sakura: Li Syaoran

card captor sakura cosplay - li syaoranLi Syaoran is the distant relative of Clow Reed, the creator of the Clow Cards. Because of this, he believes that he is the rightful inheritor of the Clow Cards, not Kinomoto Sakura. Thankfully, Sakura eventually proves herself worthy to Syaoran, who later becomes her ally.

I’m not sure how the cosplayer looks, but this is a beautiful shot. The green lake looks good on picture, though I’m not sure I’d want to see it in real life. I can’t imagine what moldy lake smells like…

Card Captor Sakura: Kinomoto Sakura

card captor sakura cosplay - kinomoto sakuraOne of the most common characters in cosplay to date, Kinomoto Sakura from the CLAMP Series, Card Captor Sakura has so many costumes to choose from that it becomes hard to recognize a cosplayer portraying the protagonist of the series!

This girl? Well, she has the staff, she has the cards, and she has Keroberos (Cerberus) on her shoulder! Talk about paying attention to details..!

CLAMP would be proud.
