The Song Costume
This costume is... pink. There's no way around it. It's ruffly and pink.
Most of the time I can excuse the pink. But this time, it's just too much for
me. Perhaps I'm bitter because Kerochan's costume
is even worse this time around. I usually love Kero's outfit, but the one he
wore here was just beyond awful. I'll save my feelings on that for another, page
though. You're here to learn about Sakura's costume, after all.
The dominant costume here is overwhelmingly pin, there is a touch of cream,
black and a lovely perwinkle used in its construction. The perwinkle, which
forms a ruffled underskirt is the most noticable of the other colors. The skirt
of the pink dress is cut open in the front and is an inch or two shorter to
display the periwinkle to full advantage. The underskirt also has a unique
scalloped cut to its hem. That touch brings out personality in the outfit,
and is something I especially like about it.
The upperpart of the dress is cut to be formfitting and has long sleeves. A
black eighth note is emblazoned on the chest. Surrounding the neck is large cream
colored collar, which is cut in the front at the same angle and fashion of the
skirt's cut. The effect matches quite nicely. Cream colored gloves with wide
wrists that reach a few inches up Sakura's arms complement the collar.
A large pink hat, of almost the same fashion as Sakura's school uniform hat,
tops the outfit. Visible on the right front side of the hat is another black
eighth note. Both of the notes were highly appropriate, because this costume
appeared in the episode where Sakura was chasing The Song.
Completing the outfit is a pair of pink shoes, which are also similar in
fashion to her school shoes. The main difference is that the buckle strap is
placed towards the back of the shoe and wraps around her ankle rather than crossing
over the bridge of her foot.
