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.
I plan to fix up a few bits from the Crystal power version such as the skirt and wig, all I need to get is the first broach and i'll be the classic version ready for more cosplaying. ^^

Saw you on Saturday, your costume was so great! :) My sister was the little Chibiusa- being recognised by you (and the other two cosplayers) and getting photos really made her happy, so thank you! <3

Journal

Choker (update) (Posted 14th February 2013)

Here I added the eternal moon forehead piece to the choker, replacing the last gold moon piece (which was a little too big). ^^

Boots (update) (Posted 14th February 2013)

Here I painted the black heel to match the boot material colour.

Tiara (update) (Posted 14th February 2013)

Here is the updated tiara prop I ordered off ebay, (made of brass) with added cameo gem and stuck on beads.

Sailor Fuku (update complete) (Posted 14th February 2013)

Here is my updated sailor fuku, the whole process of attaching the skirt to the outfit was easier than I expected to be! I managed to attach it to the skirt underneath and make it barely noticable that the colour dosen't 100% match the collar (due to lack of paint).

Gloves (update for Telford Expo) (Posted 5th February 2013)

This had to be done since my last pair became my eternal gloves (sadly not reversible..) ^^; Pretty much I did luckly have an extra pair of gloves stashed away and I came up with recycling 6 lot of my sister's old braclets for the red hooped ends. They can't really fit right up my arms like they meant to in the ref pics, but in my opinion, they do look more better and armor like than fabric (I really do feel like i'm in steel armor with these fukus, just crazily put together..XD)

Skirt (update for Telford Expo) (Posted 5th February 2013)

Here is the new skirt for the fuku, which will be simply attached over the present skirt. I feel this has to be done since my last attempt of leveling the skirt length didn't go well as the material started unraveling. Also I would like to use the present skirt as a kind of underskirt, just to help the skirt have that 'widespread' effect. Before I begin attaching the whole thing to the fuku, I'm aiming to completely cover the skirt, to the pleat, with paint to match the new collar colour (looks like I may need to buy another can..XD)

Sailor Collar (update for Telford Expo) (Posted 5th February 2013)

Here I decided it would be best making the collar and skirt a darker colour (since the colour didn't match most of the ref pics of sailor moon.) Before I applied a can of navy blue upholstery spray paint I had to unstitch the collar and both red bows from the fuku. I then added a new set of lines with shiny white ribbon (after removing the previous stitched ones for the paint). I'll next be adding a new skirt to the fuku to match the new collar colour.

Gloves (Posted 20th July 2012)

Here are the gloves, complete with more padding in the red parts.

Sailor Suit (Custom made) (Posted 20th July 2012)

I had this custom made for me and I was already aware that it wasn't what I expected, so I thought I'd add my own adjustments to it. (I am however happy that it's a leotard this time!) After I attached the red bows to the front and back, I stitched the back and sleeves so it can look more fitted to me. I then began trimming the skirt and adding hot glue to the ends to avoid them unraveling. Next up, I'm thinking of sewing a padded bra into the bust area.

Wig and ponytails (Posted 20th July 2012)

Yay! looks ok! X3

Ponytails WIP 2 (Posted 20th July 2012)

Completeness with hair grips! XD

Golden Hair barrets/ Accessories (Posted 20th July 2012)

Here are all the accessories I made today together! :D I simply made the golden hair barrets from golden craft card, glued onto the plated beads and hair clips.

Earrings (Posted 20th July 2012)

These are made from silver plated beads and moon charms (I gave the moons a gold tone with a pen) all glued together on to a stud.

Tiara WIP 2 (Posted 20th July 2012)

Yay finished! When the spray paint dried I started decorating it with stick-on plated jewels, the red gem is attached to a cameo piece I bought from the bead shop.

Tiara WIP (Posted 20th July 2012)

Here is the tiara from the previous time I was moon, I ordered a new brass one on ebay but since it's taking it's time to arrive (I'm talking 4 weeks..grr >.>)I had no choice but to edit this one. I began spraying a new coat of glitter paint over it and letting it dry for a few hours...

Ponytails WIP (Posted 19th July 2012)

My friend helped build these on her sewing machine Arigatou!! It would of took ages handstitching them. XD Afterwards I wrapped the original wig extentions to one so far..hopefully they're ok with only bits of the ponytail hair on them. XD

Brooch WIP 2 (Posted 19th July 2012)

Here is the completed brooch, I put this together using various jewelry pieces, hot glued onto a yoyo part (this seemed much better than buying another compact). I also glued a safety pin onto the back! ^^

Boots WIP 3 (Posted 16th July 2012)

Completeness with gold moons! :D

Boots WIP 2 (Posted 16th July 2012)

Added silver material from a recyled bag! :D

Boots WIP (Posted 11th July 2012)

Here are some awesome boots I bought off ebay which are proper cosy to wear. :D All I'll need to do is to edit the top section with silver material/gold moons.

Brooch WIP (Posted 7th July 2012)

Well now since I'm not getting the real bandai version because of a scam seller, I'm better just editing my own version with a mirror compact as a base. :D As a start off, I've cut out the main pink gem out of another christmas ball XD, plus I have a spare brass moon that I can use to fit to the design. My plan for the 4 other gems will be to use this jeweled bracelet. I would like to keep the gold holders on the gems linking the bracelet together, so it can have a more secure look to them. :D

Odango covers WIP 3 (Posted 6th June 2012)

Here is what they turned out like, was hard to finish after a few burns from the hot glue gun XD but it was worth it! All that's left to do now is find a way to attach them to my usagi wig. They are abit on the heavy side with the silver rings but it can be solved! ^^

Odango covers WIP 2 (Posted 5th June 2012)

Today I got these silver curtain rings from my local DIY shop and thought of attaching them to the christmas ball pieces. I started off hot-glueing around the silver rings onto the baubles and then trimmed off the excess parts. Now they measure up to 2 inches wide which is a better fit on the wig buns.

Red bows (Posted 4th June 2012)

These were used last time on my previous outfit. All that had to be added to them was stuffing to give them more of a 3D look. :D

Odango covers WIP (Posted 17th May 2012)

So this is what i've came up with pretty much. I kind'a took apart my previous covers for my Cardcaptor Sakura wand, so I had a go at cutting a plastic christmas ball in half (I love that red polish look, they really match the bandai wands X3) . I'm next planning to buy a bezel each for the two halfs as the silver frames.

Usagi Bag (Posted 17th May 2012)

This bag is seen with Usagi-chan containing her school lunch in season 1. I thought i'd make my own tracing the bunny head from my laptop screen onto a spare bag and sponge painting the bag pink. It will be perfect for the day carrying my lunch and change of clothes! ^^

World ver. Wand purchased* (Posted 17th May 2012)

I managed to grab this for £40 on Yahoo Japan Auctons a couple of months ago (since I lost an auction on a good eternal brooch). I'm pretty shocked the buttons/sounds still work when the seller said they don't (they are still a little dodgy though XD).
