About this Costume
- Construction Details:
This was a pretty straightforward gown made from Casa satin and organza. The pattern didn’t require much altering, except adding the side slit. It is lined and boned down to the waist. The hardest part was figuring out the organza pieces underneath, which also serve as the lower lining and are French seamed. I am proud of mastering the rolled hem on my serger to create the look her finished edges have. I also sculpted and assembled the rose earrings. I needed killer heels to make sure I was taller than Aya as our Sailor Venus. I found a pair of shoes in a suede fabric that were a breeze to make the perfect color with fabric paints. The roses on the dress/ankles also had to be hand painted. I chose to carry a pink rose stem because a green one like in the illustration just looks dead and gross! The necklace pendents were cast by our Sailor Mars, Fuu, and quickly assembled in the room thanks to Sam. Fuu also cast awesome forehead gems, but mine wouldn’t stay on! I styled my real hair for this one, but my hair is bobbed, so I used a ponytail clip.
- Personal Thoughts:
- This was made for a group for SabotenCon '11. Luckily, this costume had been on my list for years. So, I jumped when they needed a Jupiter.
