Cosplayer Ammie > Costume of Mistress 9 from Sailor Moon S
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- I had to think of a costume to have for Youma 2012 that was of the Sailor Moon sorts. My original plan was to have Wicked lady done and ready to debut but I was swamped with commissions and left with little time for myself. Instead of rushing the Wicked Lady costume I decided on another Sailor Moon baddie I have been wanting to make, Mistress 9. I had just finished reading the managa chapter that introduced Mistress 9 and my desire to make that costume only grew. What was even better about this one, I had all the supplies/fabrics and wig already on hand. So it was basically a $0 costume.
The star on the forehead is a rhinsestone I painted black and put a gloss over. It just spirit gums to my head.
The top was made of a stretch satin I had and has a hook and eye front. The pearls were some I had bought years ago, I believe with this costume in mind. If memory serves, they are actually Christmas garland that was on clearance for $3.
The top is fully lined and has a corset style back to fit the top to my waist a bit better.
The skirt is white satin with a voile sheer fabric over top for the flowy look. The bottoms of both layers are a serged rolled hem.
I got creative with makeup and decided to do very dark eyeshadow and fake eyelashes. I used purple lipstick as well.
The earrings were my made by my dear friend, Dee. They are the string of 3 pearls.
I tried to have that sinister, pursed lip look in all the photo's that were taken of me. Mistress 9 seems to always have the tiny puckered lips and just the evil glare going for her.
I choose to do the manga style one cause I liked the contrast alot better with navy and white as opposed to navy and black.
- Personal Thoughts:
- This has been on the "to-do" list for a loooong time. I'm glad I actually got around to making it!
- Styling Notes
- The wig is the one I use for Sailor Mars. It is a Zephyr straight/long in black/purple. I just steamed the bangs in a roller to give it that poof that all Sailor Moon characters tend to have.
- Wig Review
- For a super long wig it doesn't tangle as easily as other wigs. It's very heavy, but beautiful. I love the color of it!
