Description
This is a cosplay I never thought i'd do, I fell in love with Sailor moon as soon as I started watching the first episode in the original japanese dialogue. I first wanted to be Sailor Jupiter because she's so cool and strong, but as I started to find out more about Usagi in the seires she started to become my favorite character.
There are a few things I need to look at in detail, which definetly involve the accessories: the broach, scepter and such. So I'm prepared to spend double the amount for them seems as I want to take in as much detail as possible.

I hope I'll look good as Usako-chan (fingers crossed) lol

Journal

Sailor Uniform (Posted 19th May 2010)

The Sailor suit was such a struggle at first, but mannaged to complete it the way I wanted it to be. The top was simply made from a white t-shirt which I found in primark ages ago, I just didnt want it anymore so then, all I had to do really was fold and stuff up each sleeve into three parts using plushie stuffing and cut off most of the bottom for later. Joining the blue pleated tennis skirt with the top was really bad at the start, the white top started to stretch too much that I was worried it would look horrible to even continue. I used plushie stuffing to make the bottom of the top, then folded and hand stitched the entire skirt to the top.
With the help of my best friend, we hand stitched the red bows from satan a few months back, but afterwards we saw it was too thin and wouldnt be strong enough to stick up, so I decided to try a different material. It was really tough material to stitch though and didnt really work as good as the satan material, but it worked soon after we put two pieces of wire in each one.
I found the blue collar on a sailor fancy dress costume from afflecks in manchester, and stitched it on to the white top using a sewing machine (which took me some time to get used to lol). Afterwards, I added acrylic paint to the collar so it would match the colour of the skirt, for it was far to light. I know I should of used fabric paint, but I think it dried out alright, it actually gives the effect that it is like the exact tone in the anime. I never thought I would have completed this ever! I have to say the most difficult process that left me in a mess for days was attatching the skirt to the top, The whole folding and stitching together~it nearly all came undone at one point, it was horrible I was so lucky that all of it didnt fall apart.

Now it seems to be all done* :D Im so happy how it turned out lol! X3 I just hope it dosent fall apart on me again!!
