Cosplayer Chinako > Costume of Eternal Sailor Mars from Sailor Moon Sailor Stars
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- Leotard, wig, and boots were bought online, everything else was made from scratch. The boots were cut at an angle and had ribbon and stars sewed on. I made two circle skirts from Casa fabric and added ribbon for the waist band. The skirts snap onto the leotard to hold their position. Ribbons on back and front were made from a thicker Casa fabric, and then stuffed with foamy to keep their shape. Collar was made from Casa satin and I sewed the pink ribbon onto it. The sleeves are sewn to poof with Casa shiny and the rolls on the gloves/sleeves are staffed with cotton piping to hold there shape. Our Saturn did all the tiaras, earrings, and star brooches. My brother helped write the kanji on my scroll. He did a lovely job! I've already revised this costume a lot, so expect pictures of a slightly better version soon!
- Personal Thoughts:
- I love Sailormoon and the thought of cosplaying in an Eternal Senshi group was too good to pass up. Originally I was asked to be Jupiter, but I turned it down because I didn't feel I was tall enough to portray a good Jupiter. Luckily, I wasn't forgotten and I was then asked to be Mars. I knew I had to do it! We had a lot of fun and got so many great pictures! We are planning another get-together soon so we can get the classic "circle" and "v-formation" shots!
