Construction Details:
Tiara: I purchased my tiara from Catzia collectibles. :)

Chest gem: Read on Sparklepipsi's tutorial to use a Christmas ornament and it worked great! I got one that was 60mm in diameter then spray painted the inside of it.

Boots: I bought Funtasma 300 gogo boots then cut the boot top to the correct chevron shape and trimmed it with the same fabric as my bows.

Chest and butt bows: I lined the bows with stiff interfacing then flipped them inside out. I made sure to fold the center in a way so that the bow would have the right pinched look.

Skirt: I used a fabric that is almost a suiting material for the skirt then pleated only the top that would meet the hip roll then let the skirt hang freely without ironing in the pleats. It helps to keep a fluffier skirt look.

Main Leotard: I found thick ultra 4 way stretch matte spandex for this but still double lined it for fear of it being see through. I chose to do the fuku as a leotard with separate top for the puffy upper "armor" part. It makes getting into it a bit easier since it's like wearing a one piece swim suit then wearing a crop top on top of it. For the purpose of wearing it for extended hours, I also put in hooks under the crotch for bathroom reason. :X

Hip roll: I bought batting in sheet form to roll up then wrapped spandex around it to shape the hip roll.

Shoulder/glove rolls: Using the same batting above, I laid a sheet of batting in spandex then folded the spandex over to sew 3 straight lines through it. Instant puffy rolls!

Gloves: Since I had ultra stretch spandex, I actually traced my hand and sewed around it to make the gloves. If your spandex is stretch enough then you don't need gussets! XD
Personal Thoughts:
I love Mercury for always been the quiet, smart supporting character amongst the senshi! She is comfortable with using technology, is cute, and always sweet!
