Costume Information

Description
Gawd this is actually a childhood dream cosplay! Venus was always my favourite even after Neptunes appearance. I loved Vs design more than Venus and finding out there was a manga series about V was better!

Hopefully will lots of props~

Unfortunately on the day lost one of the gold glove bands so ditched the other to avoid mismatches :( Some improvements needed but im very happy with the outcome :D

You made an amazing Sailor V! I only saw you in passing (at the canteen place), meant to come say hi but food took priority while it was still available!) but I've seen the photos since too and that just confirms it.

Journal

TEST (Posted 13th August 2012)

SO HAPPY with the outcome a bit on/off but still happy!
All thats left before Ame now is to add Gold to the gloves and make the shoe straps!

Googles and Compact (Posted 13th August 2012)

Made from polymer clay commissioned by foxhole so cannot take credit :)

New Collar & Bow Done (Posted 2nd August 2012)

I wasnt happy with my 1st collar (or this one tbh) but it'll work but i love my bow ;D

90%? (Posted 2nd August 2012)

Sorry for the blurry pic. Just wanted to show Im doing something xD
(pic is 2weeks old too...)
Ive kept the pleats pinned at the bottom and stitched on the waistband! Now just needs a zip and i can FINALLY class it finished and take some pics

Skirt Start (Posted 2nd August 2012)

After a good... i dont know how long Ive picked it back up. I originally wanted her finished by the UK manga release but ah well!
Ive currently pinned the red bias to the drill which will be stitched down later and then iron the pleats it~

Complete Top (Posted 2nd August 2012)

{minus shoulderpads and tails of the bow OTL}
So all done After street-angel went I made the flap and cuffs and sticthed em on. Altogether Im pretty proud of the work we did together So now to pleat the skirt when I buy some bias and the shoulderpad.

Collar (Posted 16th February 2012)

1st pic the drill cut out using Simca one as pattern piece. 2nd it pinned down with Gabardine i made into bias. Ive sewn it inside out, then turned it throught and sewn down the red bias on show for more support. Its a bit messy so may remake it tbh xD

Cuffs (Posted 16th February 2012)

Again drill. They were both scraps tbh conveinently the right width and length for my arm xD So hemmed the edges in to be neater, pinned in red ribbon sewed that all up then sewed it to the end of my sleeve simple!
