Description
Because it's sailor moon... Makoto was one of my favorites when growing up as a kid and has always been the sailor scout I've always wanted to be. Done two sailor scout previously, let see how much I have come from those attempts.

Sailor Jupiter is to go with Sailor Mars, Mercury and Venus from the same original series. We did think about doing the new style versions, however with props being made and things that were already made, we decided to go 90s original.

I now have everything completed, and hopefully will be doing a quick dress up before the event to make sure nothing needs tweaking.

I made a cosplay of her last year for those same reasons. Looking forward to seeing progress!

Progression (Posted 16th January 2014)

Haven't picked up this costume for a while and it's time to start her again... the bows have been made and so has the collar. Got another sewing pattern in the post coming as I haven't got a clue where my other one has gone to. All the fabric is still with me waiting to be sewn. Attempted the gloves, however I need to buy thicker wadding or rope to finish them off (will be using gloves from Eternal Sailor Saturn)

Boots are now complete. Waiting for the end of the month so I can grab either my tiara or her wig (Christmas was an expensive period for me) Hopefully I can get this done for May Comic Con or sooner.

The little things (Posted 8th August 2013)

Brought earrings, hair bobbles and fabric.
Shoes have been dyed and wig has been relisted. Going to make all the accessories first then make the actual costume because I can spend more time concentrating on the main body of the costume without any distractions.
