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

She looks much cuter with the obitsu body. You know Blythe customizers will buy that Licca body with a tilt neck.

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;

The Azone body really suits her and ups her cuteness.

the Pure Neemo does look good on her in that shot, but be aware that they actually suffer from rather ugly joint slots, with a very limited range of movement.

the 24cm. OBITSU i employ may not be as Organic looking, -and certainly incapable of pulling off a good looking equivalent of that Azone pose above-
but while that version of the Pure Neemo is stuck in a permanent sitting pose, the OBITSU 24 here is capable of a wide range of fine-looking poses. it really comes down to personal preference.

in any case, i had to make new gloves and stockings; the original stockings being too short, and the gloves being too small/tight for even the 24cm OBITSU's Grasping hands.

even so, i went the extra mile with new lace cuffs and ribbons for both the sleeves and gloves, and i think i'll be soon adding a lacy Crinoline to enhance the body of her skirt...

The adjustments you are making are pulling the look together really well. I'm not sure if adding more lace would bring together the lacy bits from the rest of the outfit for more cohesiveness or overdue it. She is looking great so far!

added crinoline seems to add the needed flounce to bring the skirt more in line with the established official look;

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;
