About this Costume
Construction Details:
The color gradients on the collar and skirts were airbrushed instead of dyed, which turned out to be my favorite part of the whole outfit. Bodysuit was made by me using a pattern drafted by Hailo and Kairi_G! The chest bow is two rectangular pieces of satin and interfacing scrunched together. Butt bow is 2 layers of chiffon, 6 layers of nylon netting with a built-in wire frame. The crotch heart was made by BeckyTaka and my transformation locket by Jolean from Southern Moon Creations. All other accessories (jewelry, hair doodads, glove rolls) were made by me. Tip for anyone who intends to trim down boots with scissors: don't cut off your zipper pull. You will be spending an entire night trying to force it back on, and (if you're lucky) it'll probably end up backwards.
Personal Thoughts:
MOON DREAMS. I re-watched Sailor Moon S in the summer of 2009, fell back in love with it, and really wanted to do some version of her Super form. Naoko did some neat little designs for the re-launch of the Sailormoon Channel website, and one in particular grabbed me (http://mangastyle.net/gensaku/Summer_2002_Splash.jpg). I liked the combination of both her manga and Myu designs and was all over the idea of getting to have two fluffy rainbow skirts.

I finally made this for Katsucon '10 and had SUCH A BLAST. I knew I was going to be the most awkwardly tall Sailor Moon ever, so I just rolled with it and enjoyed myself far more than I ever expected to. Thanks to everyone who participated in this INCREDIBLE group, and for making me such a happy Moon. :3
Wig Details
Styling Notes
I had this wig for about a year before I made this costume. It came pre-styled, which saved me a whole lot of trouble, but left little stretching room for my head. :/
