Costume Information

General
Cost : Again I have no idea... another estimate of... £175?
Time Taken : I have no idea so I will estimate at... 3 months?

Description
This costume was based on the costume wore by Kuroda Yuri in the fourth stage Sailor Moon Musicals, Black Lady. Saffir is the younger brother of Prince Demand. So another paired cosplay for me and Debbie.

I honestly have no idea about the construction of this one as I was only really around for the many fittings. I do know that all the beads were sewn on by hand. Poor Debbie had to sit there for hours just sewing these beads. I would have helped but I was too paranoid of doing it wrong!!

Again we had to adjust the pattern for my size as, like I said, I'm alot shorter and bigger chested than Debbie. But we managed.

We both had black moons for our foreheads.

We did have wig trouble with this costume. Mainly the wig I had comissioned wasn't at all like we requested so we had to then cut some bits ourselves. It didn't turn out too badly though.

Oh and my gloves... they go up above my elbow... that was entertaining.

EDIT - 05/04/2011
New wig.

Events worn at:
London MCM Expo, May 2009.
Kitacon III, April 2011.

Thank you, ^_^ We did our best to be as exact as possible with all of our costumes. There are some differences between my costume and the original but only if you look really really closely, XD

Wow! Looks awesome! ^_^ Can't wait to do a Black Moon Clan group with you guys!

Out of curiousity how similar are the musicals to the anime/manga in terms of story and costumes? I haven't seen any of the live action or musical stuff (and only briefly seen the manga) so I don't know much about the Sailor Moon world :(

Thanks hun, ^_^

The myus... well first off they are more shiny, XD And very colourful but it's Sailor Moon so it's to be expected, XD Though they do tend to cover a bit more skin then the anime fukus or manga fukus would. Atleast... I think so. The plots? Some of them are accurate to the anime/manga. It's sort of a mixture of both. Though some of the myus do have fresh new stories, ^_^

If you have a VHS player I actually own quite a few of the myus on video... I do have one on DVD too but my friend in the states is borrowing it right now.
