    Default TOMY/TAKARA "Liccarize" Cardcaptor Sakura Sakura Kinomoto 2017 edition





    i've made so many modifications to this doll that i figured i might as well make a new thread altogether, so as to minimize any possible confusion;

    CardCaptor Sakura goes way back with me, all the way to the original BANDAI/TRENDMASTERS bendy-body dolls of almost twenty years ago, the TRENDMASTERS Sakura pink costume "Deluxe Set" being among my very first Anime dolls, indeed, one of the fundamental dolls that steered me towards Anime doll collection/customization to begin with;



    alas, she did not age well at all, and was quickly superseded by much better dolls.

    all the same,i had always been attached to her, long wishing for an updated doll of her
    to finally take a rightful place among the more modern girls in my collection,
    and in 2017, it finally came true when TAKARA re-released the "Liccarize" Sakura
    that i had missed out on several years back. they also re-issued her "pink costume" as a separate accessory, and i had to have both to make the modern Sakura Kinomoto doll i long pined for. Not Cheap, but Well Worth It;






    being used to the 1/6 OBITSU BODY, i couldn't help but take exception to the rudimentary (to me) Barbie-like "Licca" doll body she came with. fortunately, OBITSU was about to release a brand new redesigned 24cm. body, which appeared to be JUST EXACTLY what i wanted for Sakura, and, indeed, after ordering a pair of them, the new body did in fact fit her exactly as if it was intended to all along;


    Original BANDAI/TRENDMASTERS "Bendy Body" TAKARA "Licca" body, modeled by "Tomoyo Daidouji"



    New OBITSU BODY 24cm.



    Liccarize Sakura with new OBITSU;



    so far, so good, no, better than that, PERFECT.

    indeed, perfect, except for problems with fit and finish with her costume, -especially after a complete doll body transplant- that called for the best of my sewing and customizing skills.

    brand new sets of gloves and stockings were immediately in order, and a new elastic gathering for the bonnet, so it would properly fit her head. a new combined Petticoat/slip was made from the rudimentary Petticoat originally included with the costume, and some lace-edged crinoline was permanently fixed to waist of the dress itself. a high-quality mini zipper, taken from a vintage 1960's Barbie accessory set, was added in place of the dresses' original Velcro closure,
    and, finally, since her original red shoes would no longer proper fit her new body, -with it's much larger, realistically-proportioned feet and all- a new pair of shoes was sourced from a late-1990's Barbie "Little Extras" shoe set. with the ribbons from the original pair in place, the new shoes look and fit just about perfectly.

    Finally, i gave her a new Faceup, really just a little alteration of her eyes, and some lip highlighting.

    here is the finished doll. she is as perfect as i ever expect to have in a Sakura Kinomoto doll.
    a perfectly-scaled "Keroberos" sidekick pet, taken from BANDAI's "S.H. Figuarts" Sakura action figure nicely completes the set;

    i'll likely be having wait some months to come before i can get her the OBITSU she deserves, but that will come in time, and it'll be well worth the wait...

    hopefully, her head will be sized to mate well with that brand new OBITSU 24cm. sculpt. Here's Hoping...

    well. after AmiAmi's delay of a couple more months, she's finally released, and on her way!!

    i wasn't able to afford her OBITSU replacement body yet, but perhaps for Christmas.
    until then, i'll have to make do with her terrible (IMO) stock TAKARA Licca body...

    she showed up several days ago, and i couldn't help but start a bunch of improvements right off,
    borrowing Yuki's old-type OBITSU 24 body, -a perfect match in skin tone!-
    new gloves and stockings made from scratch, the originals being sized to fit the original TAKARA Licca body, itself much too short in actuality for Sakura's head, and looking far more proportionate on a 24cm. OBITSU body.

    also, her bonnet, as provided out of the box, WILL NOT FIT snugly to her head, so i reworked it with elastic lace to fit snugly and realistically.

    she's pretty much finished as she now stands.
    soon as i can afford to, both Sakura here and my Yuki Nagato will be getting the new 2017 24cm. OBITSU body redesign.

    also, since Yuki's bra, panties and socks are a fine match to Sakura here, i guess i'll have to make Yuki a new set soon. here's a comparison shot, Sakura's current stand-in old design 24cm. OBITSU body, beside her TAKARA/TOMY original;

    improvements/modifications include; new red and cream ribbons for her gloves and sleeves, sleeves with new elastic gathering and lace cuff, and Petticoat/half slip reworked into a full slip/petticoat.

    here's a comparison with the stock doll;


    -STOCK-



    -CUSTOM-






    in the end, this new doll certainly handily beats out my last one i had years ago,
    itself a similar attempt to improve an existing character doll,
    this one a Korean bootleg;
