About this Costume
Construction Details:
These costumes were a group effort, almost a year of behind-the-scenes planning went into making these! rnrnNyuNyu (Mercury) provided the patterns for the collars, bows and sleeves. The bows are heavily interfaced so they stay flat and perky! We all agreed to make our front bows from two-toned taffeta for a little extra character on the costumes. The sleeves are lined with a layer of tulle so they stay puffy (my life was changed by this discovery!) The sleeve/glove rolls have piping filler inside, also an amazing solution, so much easier than stuffing; check out NyuNyu's tutorial on making amazing glove rolls!rnrnI provided patterns/instructions for the skirts and waist "V-stripes". Each tier of the skirt is 2 pleated circle skirts with 1/2" horsehair braid in the hem. These were a true feat of engineering to get right, but I'm so happy with the look!! The V-stripes are interfaced satin sewn into the leotard. rnrnWe cut the V-shape into purchased boots and sewed hand-made bias tape to the tops. The chokers were made from two pieces of satin heat'n'bonded together then cut into the choker shape. rnrnTiaras, broaches, earrings and small star gems were casted for the group by WindoftheStars (Moon)!!rnrn
Personal Thoughts:
Minako is my favorite character of all time, and Eternal Sailor Venus was one of the first costumes I sewed by myself when I started cosplaying ... getting to revisit this costume after getting a few years of cosplay experience under my belt was pretty special to me!! Not to mention having a full set of Eternals to cosplay with was a fangirl dream come true ~ each of these ladies are so sweet and talented, this group was such a pleasure to be a part of ♥!
