Sakura’s Pajama Collection

Thursday, August 4th, 2011

My original post on Sakura’s cardcaptor apparel involved the pink pajamas she wore when capturing her second Clow Card, before Tomoyo stepped in to provide costumes. Throughout the series and movies, Sakura is shown in 13 different pajama outfits, made up of 10 different styles.

Warning: This is a very image heavy post, and this post contains visual spoilers.


Cardcaptor Apparel: Pink with a Hoop Skirt

This outfit was originally designed by Tomoyo with the Fly card in mind, as that’s the card Sakura was up against when she wore it in the manga. In the anime, Tomoyo plans to have Sakura wear it for a “forest dance” in the park to film. Instead, Sakura wears it while going after Woody and Rain. This outfit appears in the chapter “A Cardcaptor is Born Part 2″, and in episode four, “Sakura’s Tiring Day”. It also appears in Tomoyo’s daydream in episode 40.


Sports Apparel: Tennis Uniform

If there’s one thing that does not interest me, it’s sports. However, there are two sports which generally have nice uniforms: tennis and soccer. (It’s only a coincidence that tennis is about the only sport I can actually play, were I one to play sports.)


Cardcaptor Apparel: Water Jester

Sakura wears this in episode three, “Sakura’s Heart-Racing First Date”. I don’t understand the jester theme to the outfit, but maybe that’s just what it is: a theme. Does Tomoyo sit around thinking, “What would Sakura look like in a jester swimsuit”? Maybe she thought, “What did court jesters swim in? Oh, I have to make a jester swimsuit for Sakura to wear!” This outfit isn’t visible in Tomoyo’s van of costumes in the second episode, so it’s possible she threw an idea together quickly after learning the enemy would be water-based.


Sakura’s Magical Footwear

Tuesday, August 19th, 2008

Lately I’ve been going through episodes of Cardcaptor Sakura episodes, preparing write-ups on Sakura’s Cardcaptor outfits. I’ve become more observant of what characters are wearing when, and am taking notice of when outfits are reworn in later episodes (something I hadn’t noticed with this series, but had back when I first watched Saint Tail).
