Construction Details:
♥~School Fuku~♥
Even though it looks like a very basic outfit, I still had to make the majority of the pattern bits from scratch or majorly altering ones I had previously made. I am not what the pattern makers consider "average" proportions-wise but an actual hourglass shape, which requires a little more work than simply starting with the package default; making sure everything fit properly before cutting into the actual fabric. Now, I have a basic pattern that can altered for most school girl fukus.

The navy suiting fabric I used is so soft and supple! Even though is was meltable on higher iron settings (which made some of the tasks more difficult), it was still very much a joy to work with and wear. It was also wonderful finding a nice white for the shirt that wasn't see-through. Also all the seams are 100% finished due to the fray-able nature of the fabric that I used.

It's a really comfortable cosplay for the most part. Plus, I really love the embroidery that I decided to do for the red stripes on the collar and the cuffs since it looks really lovely against the wonderful navy fabric.

♥~Socks & Shoes~♥
The shoes while it seems they would be easy to find are proving a little more tricky to find more accurate ones. I eventually found and purchased a pair of Mary-jane style black heels from a local store. The socks were purchased locally as well.

♥~Hair Bow~♥
I made a hair bow to go with my Eternal Sailor Venus and this cosplay out of a matte satin.

♥~Earrings~♥
The earrings were purchased from tsukinohime3 at the same time as my Eternal Venus items so all the oranges match and the only difference is that the earrings were cast with glitter.
Personal Thoughts:
Since I already had the Juuban Municipal High School Sailor Fuku from my Usagi cosplay I just had to change up the shoes and add a hair bow. Plus Minako is awesome.
