About this Costume
- Construction Details:
I re-worked my Sailor Senshi pattern a bit for this version, including making a new pattern for the bows since they're a bit different than the Super version, as well as creating the pattern for the sleeves. I think the sailor fuku came out a lot better this time around, even though working with spandex is still a little troublesome for me. It's made from a matte spandex (blue & white), and a matte satin for the bows. The bodice and skirt are fully lined and the stripes on the collar are embroidered on.
I made all the jewelry myself; I sculpted and cast the broach, the gems, and the choker moon. I absolutely love how the earrings came out. In most pictures they look like they're floating, which makes me so happy *.*
The only ones I reused were my odango shields. I think the new accessories are my favorite cosplay works to date so far! ^-^
The gloves are fresh but the glove rolls are still the ones I made for my Super Sailor Moon cosplay, they're a bit big but rather that then too small...XD
They were the ones I initially made for my Super Sailor Moon cosplay. The boots are actually permanently attached boot covers: the moons are embroidered on, and the soles are covered in a tan leather for traction and to match her boots.
My wand is the official toy since I ran out of time to finish the one I'm making.
- Personal Thoughts:
- This was one of my dream cosplays. I had wanted to cosplay as Sailor Moon even before I knew what cosplay was so many years ago.
I started making this cosplay about 2 years ago in 2008 but due to various moves and changes in RL, I didn't have the chance to complete it until right before Otakon 2009 (it was so close for AB09 but I ran into last minute troubles). I didn't get a chance to wear it till Katsucon 2010. However, since it was fit a year before, it was a little too loose when I finally got to wear it... ^^;;;
Ultimately, I'm really happy with the results, it's rather comfy, and it's my favorite cosplay to date. =^-^=
