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 was lighter than the opaque pink I had picked out, so I just grabbed it. The tiara and all of the small stars are made from foamie. Boots, gloves and leotard were all purchased - everything attaches via snaps and safety pins. The bows are my favorite part- I used lynleigh's tutorial to pattern them out. The brooch is made of Sculpey. I made this costume as well as a Saturn and Pluto for friends in about two weeks.
I'm planning on making the sleeves poofier for 2013, filling the sleeve and glove cuffs, making bootcovers, making the tiara a little more detailed along with the brooch and downsizing the chest bow because it's a little more Sera Myu sized than manga sized.
- Personal Thoughts:
- I am very pink and I love it. Cannot wait to wear this again!
- Styling Notes
- I started out with a wig from Amphigory which already had pigtails and a skin part suited for them, but it was far too small for my head and when I stubbed it it came out looking incredibly stupid. After spending over 10 hours trying to salvage the original and with a few weeks to go to AB, I bit the bullet and ordered some wefts from Amphigory hoping they would match this old wig I had from cosworx. Luckily, they matched and I was able to hotglue the fiber over some foam eggs to make the odangos, hotglued bobby pins on the ends of those to slip them into the wig, and tied the rest of the wefts around the odangos. I'm still trying to figure out a way for the odangos to be more securely attached to the wig short of gluing them in.
- Wig Review
- I like short wigs from cosworx because they hold up for a long, long time. I've had this wig since at least 2008 and it's still working for me.
