this is beautiful! i'm actually working on a senbonzakura cosplay myself and i've been looking high and low for materals for the brooches and the chain things. You wouldn't by any chance be willing to tell me where i can find those kinds of materials would you?
Thank you so much for your great enthusiasm MuffinAdventure' !
Concerning your question, as we live in Paris and you in the States, we couldn't really answer you properly @//@ However, the brooches were part bought at a pearl manufacturer and put together with medals and scrap fabrics. The " chain thing " is a golden curtain rope with " long drop " golden pearls. About the fabric, we had used light purple wild silk for the uniform (textiles shop) with gold leather for the jacket outline : ) I think you could also buy on internet shop, there are a lot of choice but you have to pay attention to the shipping prices ! Hope it could help you a little and good luck for your costume !
