Time Taken : 7 hours

Contains Spoilers!! (Aiming for Hyper Japan July 2014 - Sunday)

Mistress 9 takes over Hotaru's body once she injest's Chibiusa's Pure Heart. She also uses the Holy Grail to summon Pharaoh 90 to Earth, which would wipe out all life in an event known as the Silence.

There are two versions of Mistress 9 one is the Manga version with the white skirt, the other is the Anime where she is wearing a dark blue/black dress. I want to make the anime version.

There is a long background story to Mistress 9, the fact that her small existence was planted in Hotaru by her father (as he was controlled by the Death Busters) as a child and keeps her very frail until finally near the end of the Sailor Moon S series, she consumes Chibiusa's pureheart and starts to call upon Pharaoh 90.

.....So while Mistress 9's appearance is brief, she makes quite an impact, and to me personally even she realises that shes been used and will soon face the same fate as every other living thing, just before Hotaru claims back her existence and wipes Mistress 9 away....

Hotaru now as Sailor Saturn and sacrifices herself to stop Pharaoh 90 - Sailor Moon then uses her own Pure Heart to bring Hotaru back as a child and wipe out Pharaoh 90.

Shopping List



My hand made earrings (Posted 17th July 2014)

Finished my hand made earrings for Mistress 9! :D it's fun to learn a new craft! Never made earrings before!

Crafty earrings and top detail (Posted 17th July 2014)

Got lots of crafty things to make Mistress 9's earrings and top detail. Not long til Hyper Japan!

Top progress (Posted 16th July 2014)

Edited a halter neck top pattern and added a long wide waist I edit for the spiky peplum type spikes at the hip. Thanks go out to my mum who's helped me alter the pattern! It's all cut out now.

Next Wednesday will be sewing it all together - adding the collar and zip and making the jaggered spike bits at the hip.

I need to get the beads for the dress detail and earrings.

Super long wig! (Posted 5th July 2014)

Perfect wig goes down to my thighs - made the end into a 9 for this picture xD

Progress already! (Posted 28th June 2014)

Skirt arrived and it is perfect!! Working out the top now and looking for plastic white beads :3

July 2014 - is the month of the new moon... (Posted 26th June 2014)

The new Sailor Moon anime is due to be screened July 2014. Because of this my passion for the anime has been brought back to the surface and with it, my desire to cosplay Mistress 9.

She has always been my favourite enemy in the series (next to galaxia of course!) so I really want to do this now!

The dress is simple, the hair less so - because I intend to wear this at July's Hyper Japan event, I need to get to work! I also plan on having a full photoshoot for her as she deserve's your attention XD

So watch this space ;) I found a dress on ebay (well over £100) so this is what I am budgeting on all the bits to make the outfit from scratch (note I am not commissioning this one! Had a bad experience with Luka this year so staying away from sellers for a while).

Anyhoo the pic here is a reference of what I hope to achieve (hopefully even better)
