Costume Information

Description
I've always loved this form of sailor moon, I've always wanted to be dressed in this form, so i've finally decided to add it to my cosplay aims. I don't think it will turn out as great as the ones i've seen before but...it's worth a try! my R version took some time to complete and to be honist, didn't really get any reconition at the London expo this year (plus I was in pain most the time with my boots) but it won't stop me wanting to be her again! :) I may have to go in complete detail with the accessories, outfit, wings ect of course~and it will have to be comfortable to wear for at least one day.

Wish me luck* ^^

I just watched your masquerade performance on Tonyo's Expo masquerade show vid (YouTube) and just want to say - Well Done! Your performance was AMAZING. I really really love it. You did all the moves, and the lip synch mime to Usagi vocals is spot on. Congats on an excellent cosplay on stage. I wish you had won an award.. ^_^

Your sleeves are ingenious, they are possibly the best sleeves I have ever seen... I just may have to pilfer your plan for if I ever get around to doing ChibiChibi Moon. Great costume, really innovate use of materials. Well done! :D

Boots WIP 3 (Posted 8th October 2012)

After glueing on the red ribbon, I stuck the gold moon piece onto the front of each boot. (I was able to bend them to place after applying hot glue.)

Boots WIP 4 (back view) (Posted 8th October 2012)

Here is the back view of the boots, I really like how they've got that high pointed look just like the original reference. :D

Boots WIP 4 (front view) (Posted 8th October 2012)

Completeness! Here is the front view. ^^

Boots WIP 2 (Posted 8th October 2012)

When there was just enough coats to cover the greyness/completely dry, I began applying the red metallic ribbon to the top of the boots with hot glue.

Leotard WIP 2 (Posted 28th September 2012)

Once I finished attaching the velcro patches to the leotard/inside of the tier skirt, I could then start alining and attaching the yellow ribbon, just above a gap from the red ribbon to match the reference.

Leotard WIP 1 (Posted 28th September 2012)

Here I began the process of attaching everything to the leotard by making little markings on each side for the tier skirt. (these will be covered by velcro patches).

Boots WIP 1 (Posted 28th September 2012)

Here I began putting a few coats of white paint over these pair of grey boots. (They may need another coat..)

Brooch wings WIP 9 (Posted 21st September 2012)

Success! :D It was really fiddley to stick all the shiny pieces to the bits of foam, but I managed to get them looking close enough to the reference and the real thing! All it will need now is more duck feathers (I've ordered) to completely cover the primarys. ^^

Brooch wings WIP 8 (Posted 21st September 2012)

Here is the finished set of wings, made to match the brooch as much as possible! >D

Brooch wings WIP 7 (Posted 20th September 2012)

Painting in process..XDD

Brooch wings WIP 6 (Posted 20th September 2012)

Ok, I didn't expect them to bake pink!! XDDD It looks like I'll next have to paint them back white.

Brooch wings WIP 5 (Posted 20th September 2012)

Completeness and ready to cook! ^^

Brooch wings WIP 4 (Posted 20th September 2012)

Here I began molding out the 3d fimo wing pieces...

Eternal Artical purchased! (Posted 19th September 2012)

Here is the Eternal Bandai brooch I purchased on Yahoo japan auctions. I'm now hoping to make the wings suit the original reference/polished look as much as possible.

Brooch wings WIP 3 (Posted 19th September 2012)

Here is just a test of how it will look 'almost' together.

Brooch wings WIP 2 (Posted 19th September 2012)

Here is my attempt of recreating the polished marks onto the wings to match the brooch. I started these by cutting out the shapes seperately from a red shiny windmill piece. It was a little fiddley to cut out, but it's done and ready to go with the 3d wing fimo pieces, which I will make next..

Gloves WIP 5 (Posted 11th September 2012)

Completeness! ^^ They just need a little more hot glue and they're all secure. ^^

Gloves WIP 4 (Posted 11th September 2012)

Here are some stampings I ordered of Etsy.com, before I stuck them to my gloves I had to snip off the stars.

Brooch wings WIP 1 (Posted 11th September 2012)

Here I started to cut out 4 wing pieces out of craft foam. If you can look closely in the picture, I'm now in the process of covering both sides of each one with duck feathers..

Forehead moon piece WIP 2 (Posted 9th September 2012)

Ta-dah! A few areas got chipped..but I managed to carefully cut the shape out! It definitely matches all my accessories and bandai items! >D Now I just need to pad it on the other side somehow, so it can actually stick straight to my head. XD

Forehead moon piece WIP 1 (Posted 9th September 2012)

Since I can't find a good plated moon stamping to match the anime reference, I've began my attempt to cut out a moon shape (which will be placed in the middle of my forehead), from a gold christmas bauble...I'll do my best! XD

Sleeve hoops (update) WIP 5 (Posted 9th September 2012)

Completeness! :D

Sleeve hoops (update) WIP 4 (Posted 9th September 2012)

Here they are, half-stitched together.. XD

Sleeve hoops (update) WIP 3 (Posted 9th September 2012)

Here I've attached them together, onto stitching them to the pink bubble sleeves! :D

Sleeve hoops (update) WIP 2 (Posted 9th September 2012)

After stitching the 4 leather bag handle pieces together, I began painting them in red acrylic paint. Next I will apply hot glue to secure them in pairs, before I stitch them onto the pink bubble parts.

Sleeve hoops (update) WIP 1 (Posted 9th September 2012)

This is my third attempt to update the padded hooped sleeves, last time I made them from spare red material (which took hours of hand stitching but ended up not looking as rounded I thought.) So here I've come up with editing some leather bag handles together and seeing how it goes...

Wings WIP 6 (Posted 21st August 2012)

Here is a preview of the full set so far...after they are all finished, I may add a few features by stitching padded bone joints to the top area of each one, and possibly add a thin coat of blue spray paint the primary ends.

Wings WIP 5 (Posted 21st August 2012)

Here are the bottom half of the wings, I have just started to hand stitch around them. Afterwards I will attach them onto the top half of the wings.

Wings WIP 4 (Posted 21st August 2012)

Here I managed to complete hand stitching around both of the top wings. I'll next be starting on the bottom pair and begin planning out how to attach the whole set to my outfit!

Wings WIP 3 (Posted 17th August 2012)

Here I began to hand-stitch the ends together, reason for this is to make the end result look less obvious like a rough cut out of the shape, and not to mention the foam pieces are about 2cm thick. So I will continue with this and decide whether or not they need material entirely, to cover up any messy edges. XD

Wings WIP 2 (Posted 17th August 2012)

Here I applied a thin wooden stick (from the body of a hanger) to the spine of each top wing. This is to keep it standing up right against my back with it being not so strong to stand on it's own. I also had to go over any sharp bits with glue so it will be extra safe to wear. I don't think I have to repeat this process with the bottom half of the wings since they're going to be attached to the top half anyway. ^^

Wings WIP 1 (Posted 17th August 2012)

Here are the top half of the wings that I had custom-cut by a foam seller, I had to trim them down a little since they turned out bigger than I thought. ^^;

Trying out the Tier skirt.. (Posted 16th August 2012)

Woop! Definitely needs velcro lol >D

Tier Skirt WIP 7 (Posted 16th August 2012)

Completeness and just fits right! 8D I managed to trim and cover the v-shape by overlapping the red ribbon, luckly with some to spare for the gloves. All it needs now is the velcro on the inside to attach to the leotard, which will then be alined with the yellow ribbon that still needs to be done..

Tier Skirt WIP 6 (Posted 16th August 2012)

Here I began attaching the red ribbon over the yellow v shape. Next I will try my best to trim as much as the skirt off as possible.

Gloves with Bubble sleeves (Posted 16th August 2012)

Heres another view of how the sleeves and gloves will look..

Hair Barrets (Posted 16th August 2012)

Completeness! These were made with a set of duck feathers and metallic beads.

Gloves WIP 3 (Posted 16th August 2012)

Completeness! All they need now is the gold moon charms in the middle of each ribbon.

Gloves WIP 2 (Posted 16th August 2012)

Here I've began hot-glueing the feather barrets to each side of the gloves, using a set of duck feathers and metallic beads. This process will also be used for the hair barrets, attached onto a clip each.

Gloves WIP 1 (Posted 16th August 2012)

Here's the progress of the wrist ribbons for the gloves. I'll be carefully hot-glueing each point to the glove while wearing them! :S I sense pain coming my way.. lol

Sailor collar WIP 3 (Posted 16th August 2012)

Completeness! Ok..it's now a little stiff from the glue and black paint I added to it before to cover the navy tone.. >.<; but from a distance it's acceptable looking! XD

Sailor collar WIP 2 (Posted 16th August 2012)

Here I'm now onto my second line! It's officially covered in glue bits.. XD

Sailor collar WIP 1 (Posted 16th August 2012)

I bagan hot-glueing the gold ribbon to make up the three stripped design. It's a little tricky keeping the glue from sticking everywhere, but it's saving meh the whole stitch work..lol

Choker (Posted 16th August 2012)

Completeness! ^^ I managed to put this together using the previous choker used for Prism moon, with a gold-plated heart charm and a glittery silver moon piece.

Tier Skirt WIP 5 (Posted 9th August 2012)

Here I managed to trim the red skirt without the whole thing falling apart. I did this by stitching a v shape over the yellow and red top. :D Next week, I'll buy the ribbon to cover the stitchwork and velcro so I can then attach the whole thing to the white leotard. Some loose parts of the black skirt need a little hot glue too.

Outfit contents so far.. (Posted 8th August 2012)

Here is a pic of what I have recently been working on so far..The sailor collar (I got off ebay for £2) has been painted from navy blue to black to match the skirt, it will soon have three gold ribbon stripes added to it.

Tier Skirt WIP 4 (Posted 8th August 2012)

Here I have attached the three layers together to the red skirt, the V shaped cut out will next be covered with ribbon once I trim the red visable part of the red skirt. The whole skirt will then be supported onto the white leotard (once it arrives) with velcro.

Tier Skirt WIP 3 (Posted 8th August 2012)

Here I attached the black layer underneith the bottom of the red skirt, next up I'll be attaching the yellow layer! ^^

Tier Skirt WIP 2 (Posted 7th August 2012)

This is pretty much the shape I've hoped for! I've now cut a V shape into the yellow skirt so it can fit to Eternal moon's design. I cut the bottom section of the black for it to be attached to the bottom of the red skirt (when it arrives XD), so eventually it will be stitched together. I've had to also glue together the pleats in them, hopefully they'll stay in place once I've attached the red ribbon over the V shape..

Tier Skirt WIP 1 (Posted 7th August 2012)

Here I'm starting on cutting the yellow and black of the tier skirt. The red one hasn't arrived yet so I'm just getting these two ready, once it arrives I'll then attach the three layers together!

Bubble sleeves WIP 2 (Posted 4th August 2012)

Here is the finished result! The red hoops on the ends are really tricky to keep on..very annoyed about it failing every time I try them on grr.. but I'll see If I can attach them to the white leotard when I get it! You can still see the silly faces on each one of the balls XD Ah I'll just put another coat on when I come back to them.

Bubble sleeves WIP 1 (Posted 4th August 2012)

Here I'm making the pink bubble sleeves from two rubber play balls (with silly faces) XD. I first cut carefully two holes in each one so I can fit my sholder and arm through them, I will next begin putting coats of paint over the silly faces as much as I can (you might still be able to see them in person XD). I also made two sets of red hoops to glue on to the sleeve ends, This is becoming so tricky, just as the design goes...

Wings WIP (Posted 11th July 2012)

Here is a test of the left wing, this is just to have an idea of the scale and if it will suit my whole height. XD

Odango covers. (Posted 10th July 2012)

Here are the Odango accessories I made from two curtain hoops and red christmas balls. I originally made these for Prism power moon.

Earrings (Posted 5th June 2012)

Im so glad I was able to just put these together myself without spending so much. They are made up of two gold/silver plated moon and star charms each, and glued together with string onto a stud base. The only thing I'm not sure about is the weight of them on my ears, they kind'a hurt since I don't really wear big earrings lol, but Im sure they'll be fine just for one day.

Wing Plan (WIP) (Posted 4th April 2012)

Here is a plan for the wings, but I'm still not to sure if it will be final. ^^;

Sailor Suit Update Plan (Posted 4th April 2012)

Here I have a plan out of my Eternal update. ^^

Eternal Tier bandai wand purchased! (Posted 15th February 2012)

Here is the ultimate wand Eternal moon uses later in the Sailor Stars seires. This is made up of three seperate wands, the top is the Eternal tier, the middle is the Holy moon chalice (which cost a bomb since it's so rare! It was my main 21st present), and the bottom is the power rod (the extended part for the tier).
I am SO lucky to have this it's untrue! :o
