Cosplayer Ammie > Costume of Super Sailor Mars from Sailor Moon Super S
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
Made just like all my other Sailor Moon costumes, the base is a high quality Lycra that is lined. No zippers were added into the back to keep it as accurate as possible to the anime.
Skirt and collar:
Instead of the drop circles I cut 2 rectangle pieces about 45 inches wide and 13 inches long. I folded pleats into it and had the center seam and back seam run down the front and back.
The collar is the same as the other fuku's, only this time it’s cotton.
Same goes for the glove toppers and bows.
The choker I made from a cotton piece rather than a ribbon. The star was something cosplayer Karitsa gave me (I commissioned her a Super Mercury fuku and I was to be her Mars.) so we had the same charm on our chokers to match.
Tiara, earrings and gloves:
The tiara is from Catzia's collectibles with a red gem. The earrings were ones I found from Claire’s accessories and I painted them red.
The gloves were bought from a store and I sewed the glove toppers to it.
The shoes are a red pair of pumps (same ones I use for Wicked Lady.)
- Personal Thoughts:
- I have commissioned a fair amount of Sailor fuku's and this is a different version of what I normally make. I generally make them with drop circle style skirts and I usually use a satin of some sort for the skirt, collar and bows. This time around I pleated the skirt and used cotton rather than satin. While the overall design looks nice…it is high maintenance to keep it pressed and the pleats in. I had a lot of issues in this photo shoot just keeping the skirt in place. It would cling to my leg and bunch up and lose the pleated look. Overall, I wouldn't make another fuku with this method. It just doesn't hold up correctly and I like the look of the drop circles versus the pleats.
