I wish I could see the pictures hanging up more clearly though. It looks like Chi wearing the dress? Can't be too sure though...

I'm a little disappointed. I thought a lot of the CCS costumes were cute, but as a wedding dress? I'm not a fan.

All I could think of when I saw this dress was Tomoyo designing it for Sakura. It really looks like something made for a child to me.

Designed to fit a child more so than an adult. The design is alright, but doesn't really look fitting for a wedding dress. Just wish the dress was longer.

Cute. But I think most women will have a hard time wearing it. At least, imagining the awkward, 400lb lard behemoths that pass for "women" in my area trying to fit into this gives me a little laugh. Laughing

When this was first announced, this is what I was worried about, a child-like design since it's based off of CCS. They should have made it a Tsubasa inspired wedding dress. CLAMP has the ability to design for adults and they have created some excellent gowns in their manga, wish they would have done so here. I mean, I know Japan has a tendency to think of women as children for longer than the US and a lot of Japanese women can get away with dressing younger than their age a lot longer, but I still imagine most women want to look elegant on their wedding day.

Well I'm definitely disappointed. The design looks alright, but I would have preferred a design for an older Sakura. The fabric and trim choices also leave much to be desired as it makes the outfit look very cheap. I'd love to see someone remake the dress with better fabric.

Well, it is a wedding dress, so you gotta think about it. I know CCS is meant for a younger demographic, but if you're going to make a wedding gown, it couldn't kill to make it more sophisticated. That thing there does not look like a wedding dress... It looks more like a costume, and granted, for what it's based on, you're probably thinking that it's going to look at least a bit like a costume, but if you're making a wedding dress, throwing in some more sophisticated detail so that it looks a bit more like a dress wouldn't hurt.
