Cosplayer Fancy_Duckie > Costume of Eternal Sailor Chibi Moon from Sailor Moon Sailor Stars
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- All of the solid satin is from the casa collection, I have no idea what brand the transparent pink fabric is from. It was pretty and it didn't clash horribly with the solid pink I had picked out. I went for a darker pink because when I made this costume the first time, the super-light baby pink washed me out something fierce. The tiara and all of the small stars are made from foamie; the tiara star is actually a glow-in-the-dark stick on star that was painted pink. I cast the brooch from resin and I used candy molds as a last-ditch effort to get them done before the convention. Definitely making negatives out of polymer and then using liquid latex molds for future projects. (It took over 2 hrs to get the resin out, even with mold release!!)The bodysuit was made by me out of swimwear liner and a lyrca/spandex blend; I used the Green Pepper Crystal Lake pattern for it. The gloves and boots were purchased, and for the glove/sleeve rolls and bows, I followed sparklepipsi's tutorial. Everything attaches via velcro or snaps.
- Personal Thoughts:
- I really love being pink!
- Styling Notes
- I bought the Chibi from Arda, but I used the same odangos that I made in 2012 from foam eggs and amphigory wefts. The odangos just slide into the wig with bobby pins, so I can remove them and use the wig for other projects. The red part of the odango shields were cast from resin, and the white parts are foamie. The back of the shield has a sewing pin hot glued onto it so I can stick it in the foam egg. The hair clips are made from model magic and foamie glued onto bobby pins.
