I don;t think I've seen a Haruka before, but she's my favourite scout, so I really want to see how this comes out!

Future improvements (Posted 14th April 2013)

Had a amazing time as Sailor Uranus along with the amazing Sailor Moon group! Everyone just looked fantastic!
This cosplay went down pretty well, and now planning to take to Ayacon. I'm hoping before then I'll tidy up more of this cosplay. I may redo the front bow to make it slightly bigger and sit better and remake the sailor collar. Despite the improvements I want to work on, I'm overall happy with this cosplay.

Also note to self: Pack an extra pair of nude tights. Mine ripped slightly the morning of the con

Finished (Posted 2nd April 2013)

Still need to do some tidying up, but apart from that, it's finished!

Skirt part II (Posted 2nd April 2013)

To make the skirt, I measured my hips then multiplied by 3 for the pleats. For the length, I measured from my hip bone to my desired length where I wanted the skirt to sit, this was roughly 13/14 inches. For the hem, I double folded the fabric and hand sew along the hem.
For the pleats, I made side pleats along with one box pleat at the front of the skirt, each pleat measuring about 3 inches and pinned them. I then hand sewn the pleats into place before ironing them on a low heat and removing the pins. I hand sewn the skirt to the hip roll, and finished the skirt.

Skirt (Posted 27th March 2013)

Bought more duchess satin needed for the skirt and currently in early stages. I was wanting to make a circle pleated skirt, but because I only got nearly 2 weeks left and I honestly don't want to mess up, I'm just doing the simpler way and adding pleats to the fabric before stitching it altogether. I've noticed Sailor Moon cosplayers either do the circle skirt method or this method, and both work well in their own way. This is my first time making a pleated skirt so hope all goes well!

Already made the hip roll so hoping to have all this done by next week.

Arm rolls (Posted 26th March 2013)

I made these a couple weeks ago, but now I got them attached to the leotard with the use of poppers. Also attached some to the gloves.

Still to:

Make the skirt

Attached the brooch to the front bow

Overall tidy up

Shoes (Posted 14th March 2013)

Couple of weeks ago I said I would try to make boot covers, and that didn't go quite to plan. Boot covers aren't my strongest area and because I only got a few weeks left, I went searching online for other shoes and found these. They are not perfect but they were the best I could find. The other ones I did like and looked more like the boots I needed were either too expensive, the size or colour was out of stock or it was outside the country. So in the end I got these and quite happy with them.

Going to be working on the arm and hip rolls this weekend, and will be working on the skirt next week.

Gloves (Posted 12th March 2013)

Finished the gloves.

Use duchess satin once again, cut out two rectangles on a fold, sew them together then hand sewn the two lines and used wadding for stuffing.

Had a few trial and errors with these things. At first I didn't make it long enough, the stuffing made it shorter to sew together and the stitching wasn't great. So I made it again, this time longer and better stitching and much happier with it now!

Choker (Posted 5th March 2013)

Finished choker as well. Made from duchess satin, and used sew on poppers to keep in place when wearing it.

Back bow (Posted 5th March 2013)

Finished the back bow. Also made from duchess satin and made using the same process as the last bow.

Boots fail (Posted 1st March 2013)

Last week I ordered the boots, and two days later I got a message from the seller saying they made a mistake in their inventory and didn't have the size I needed in stock anymore and gave me a full refund. I asked them if they would have any more in stock and they MIGHT do but it's unlikely.

Seriously, finding the boots is the hardest thing to do for this cosplay so far. I did find another pair of boots, however they are 13cm heels and I struggle to walk in heels as it is, plus I would look near enough 6'0 in them (I'm about 5'9/5'10 and the original boots I ordered were 2cm heel.)

At this point in time, I'm still keeping an eye out for the boots. However since I only have about 6 weeks to get this cosplay finished, I may just make boot covers.

Finished tiara (Posted 22nd February 2013)

Finished the tiara today. Easiest part of the cosplay so far. Made from craft foam, used mod podge as a sealer before painting it with gold acrylic paint and gluing on the gem.

Front bow fixed (Posted 22nd February 2013)

Originally had the bow upside down, so fixed it.

So far (Posted 13th February 2013)

The front bow is now finished, along with the brooch which was made from fimo clay and baked. The sailor collar is still to be sewn together which should be done this week.

Front bow (Posted 13th February 2013)

Finished the front bow. It's made from Duchess satin and hand sewn. Simply made two rectangles and pinched the middle of them and made the rectangle centre to keep them in place.

. (Posted 14th January 2013)

<<< Wig so far
Doj-Con is 4 months away and I still got a lot to do. I've ordered the leotard base so should be here this week. Before the end of January I'm hoping to have finished the Sailor fuku, front and back bows, sleeves and finish styling the wig.

Wig so far (Posted 17th September 2012)

Cutted the wig to the correct length. Still need some trimming here and there but so far so good!

Wig (Posted 17th September 2012)

Bought wig from Coscraft. Currently cutting it to the correct length.

Let's start! (Posted 11th September 2012)

Since Doj-con is 7 months away, I have to make a start!

I found a wig on Coscraft that I'll be ordering this week so hopefully I can styling it next week.
Between now and Christmas, I'm going to:

Style the wig
Make the tiara
Make the front bow
Make the brooch (Both heart and round shaped)
Make the choker
Make the back bow
Make gloves
Buy earrings

Since I should have the whole of January off Uni, I'll be making the rest of the outfit then. Plus it gives me enough time to lose weight and tone up. So by January I will be:

Buying and altering a leotard
Making the skirt (First time making a pleated skirt!)
Making the sailor fuku
Buying the boots

Can't wait for this group!
