Costume Information

Description
Love the Sailor Moon series and every girl always wants to be at least one of them. I wanted to be two and Rei was one of them. Made this in 2009 as one of my first costumes but decided to get it out of the attic and re-vamp some pieces as money is tight this year.

Re-making for a 3rd time as I accidentally dyed the lycra a lovely mint green. To go with Sailor Jupiter and Sailor Mercury for London Comic Con. This time the whole of the white lycra suit has been re-made and the skirt has been changed to knife pleats rather than box pleats to go with the newer sailor scouts that are being made.

Revamping Continues (Posted 7th February 2013)

Completed the main fuku of the costume now, everything been placed on and moved around to make it look better. A zip needs to be placed as the other was completely mangled.
Need to find and style my black wig, and find the accessories for this costume. Fire bow is half way to being finished for MIA. Going to have a rest for a few days before tackling these last few bits and pieces.

Re-vamp Begins (Posted 6th February 2013)

The brooch has been sanded down and painted with fresh paint. New sleeves been sewn as the others were too pink to be put back on. A new bodice top has been made for the fuku and the front bow has been re-done as the other looked terrible. Back bow has been shortened to be more screen accurate. I still hate lycra with a passion. Will be tackling the underneath of the fuku too as I want to put a new hip roll in as the other one on there now looks like it is on its last legs.

A lot of unpicking but it is doable just a lot harder than I thought it would be, however should look better than the past photo I have now of it up.
