Sailor Moon ^_~ MCM Oct 2010
Hullo all ^_^

Will anyone else be planning a Sailor Moon costume for Oct??? Every series, original characters and customized character variations are more than welcome too.
I'll be going as Usagi in her Super form from the S series, how about everyone else??? ^_~

Since we want to get as many peoples as possible for the shoot, it would be a geart idea to team up with the Sailor group on the MCM forum. They've already arranged a time for their shoot, so if we stick with that for the mo but if anyone can't do that time let me know and i'm sure we can sort something out ^_^

Shoot time and place~ 1:45 outside the front entrance

Super Sailor Venus ~ Feather-to-Earth
Super Sailor Jupiter ~ ElegantAura
Sailor Cosmos ~ Frederica_la_Noir
Sailor Neptune ~ RiverVine
Sailor Uranus ~ LollypopL
Sailor Neptune ~ DillyShilly
Sailor Mars ~ limegreenjelly *maybe*
Tuxedo Mask ~ Fishyfins *maybe*
Sailor Chaos ~ OrgXIII-Namine
Sailor Pluto ~ ryuuzaki88's friend

WTF? My friends have decided to do this (I myself am not too fond of the skirts lol) this October on the Sat, found it quite odd lol. Not seen one before (funny how these things happen)

They're being Sailor Neptune and Sailor Uranus (from the anime - the japanese anime, so their not cousins lol)

They're not on CI, but on the MCM forums as RiverVine (Neptune) and LollypopL (Uranus)

@ Frederica_la_Noir ~ Ooooo that's awesome!!! I love Cosmos, i'll get you listed up ^_~ How are you finding the hair???

@ NixieThePixie ~ Really??? That's ashame we would have loved to have you in the group, but i'll pop your friends up on the list

I'm just doing a ganeral list at the mo but if anyone would like me to put it into seperate days i'm more than happy to do that ^_^

10 Jun 2010 - 08:4734043
Awesomes =) oh I'll be there on the sat now! (I actually managed to get the weekend off ..usually they're like sorry someone else has that off) so I'll be cosmos on the the saturday! I wonder if we can get more interest in this to have a huge group for a photoshoot =)

Oh the wig xD don't get me started lol (I hate wigs in general so to have to pretty much make one is rather vexing!) I'm still not 100% sure how I'm gonna go about making the pigtails, I was thinking making the buns with sponge and glue hair on them then attach them over the pigtails onto the wig base =/ it's gonna be alot of trial and error! How's your's coming along?

Oh I see you're doing van helsing cosplays on the sunday (that's totally awesome!) if you need a third bride I'd love to join you guys (Aleera's ginger so I might not need a wig xD)

I'm pleased to see that the list is growing ^_^
Let's hope we can get a nice big group! We'll definately have to organise a photoshoot on the Saturday (at least)

@Frederica_la_Noir: Good news to hear you're coming on Saturday, it's never easy to get time off work >_<
And it would be fantastic if you could join our little Van helsing group on Sunday, we're in need of an Aleera! Having all three brides would be wonderful, and i wouldn't have guessed that you have red hair, sounds lovely ^^

@DillyShilly: Oo the more the merrier, Neptunes a great character, i adore her hair ^_^

@Lgj: Hiya, great to hear you're still up for joining us. Having a Sailor Mars would be excellent if you can squeeze her into your plans ^^ Even if its at least for a photoshoot.
I'm not sure about the masquerade yet, as i have no idea what expo's arrangements are in october, whether they'll still be having 2 masquerades or not. I'll be a bit torn between which costume to enter, As much as I adore Sailor Moon, I like the idea of a Van helsing group going up on stage (obviously if we get a big enough group for it lol) But it's not solely down to my opinion anyways.

Sorry to blab on and on everyone >_<

10 Jun 2010 - 18:0634084
Ooooo that's so awesome everyone!!!! I'm really getting excited even though we still have like 5 months lol.

@ Frederica_la_Noir ~ I totally know what you mean...i hate having to do up-dos on long wigs...it's just such a pain to make it so that none of the netting is showing I'm going to have a prectice with my old chii wig, i'll be using polystyrene balls with hair wrapped round them.
OMG we'd love to have you as Aleera!!! That would be really awesome

@ DillyShilly ~ Thats wicked, i'll get you up on the list ^_^

@ limegreenjelly ~ Sailor Mars would be perfect!!! If you can, i'll put you up as a maybe for now ^_^ If eveyone would be interested in doing the masq. then sure sounds like a plan to me

Hopefully we'll get a wicked big group together, but what ever happens we'll get lots of amazing photos ^_~

10 Jun 2010 - 18:1834085
as i said at Expo, ill gladly bring my Tuxedo Mask cosplay out of semi-retirement for the group, it just depends when the group will be, as i have a few other groups ill be doing. put me as maybe for now, and ill figure something out. it only means a quick costume change anyway ^^

Disasters road has been walked by better men

10 Jun 2010 - 19:2834104
Thats awesome Fishy ^_^ I'll get you listed.
There's no set time or location for a photoshoot yet, i'm totally open to suggestions from anyone

10 Jun 2010 - 19:3434105
if the group is on the saturday then i'm definetly up for doing sailor pluto with you guys
Always wanted to cosplay her ^_^


10 Jun 2010 - 19:5834109
That would be awesome Fusion!!! Yes it's definately looking like it'll be on the Sat ^_^

10 Jun 2010 - 22:2634121
Photoshoot would be doable ^^
I know some good stairs near the Novotel that would be perfect

Here are some links that will hopefully help you guys with your sailor costumes

This group is looking to be pretty epic!

@elegant_aura: my hairs currently a wonderful array of auburns and gingers (stripping black hair dye never works xD) but I love it so I'm keeping it this till next year when I shall attempt to get it to my natural color. so I'll love coslaying aleera I'll just get some extensions for underneath cus my hair aint quite as long as hers lol! I'll post in the van helsing thread once I get home later (it takes forever to load the forums on my phone).

@feather-to-earth: Ooo I hadn't thought of polystyrene ball hmm I shall try that out first me thinks I'm gonna try and sew 2wigs together to get the parting at the back.

oh does anyone know if expo has height restrictions on props? I'm gonna make sailor cosmos's staff and it's like 6ft long.

Expo is alright with props as long as you dont intend to hurt people with them..

I took Sailor Saturn's glaive (I think that was around 6ft) last october expo and they were fine with it ^^

I'll be cosplaying Salior Chaos on the sunday ) x

11 Jun 2010 - 13:4034140
I'm not certain but I'm considering Coan (Black Moon Clan) for October.

11 Jun 2010 - 20:3734168
That awesome everyone!!! I can't believe how much our group is growing already ^_^

@ OrgXIII-Namine ~ Totally wicked!!! I'll get you popped up on the list

@ perfectly_purple ~ Awesome i really hope you can join us, we need more villans. I'll put you down as a maybe for now.

@ limegreenjelly ~ Ooooo i love that site, they've got some really great things on there ^_^

@ Frederica_la_Noir ~ That sounds hard, i wouldn't know where to start with sewing wigs together, totally good luck. I think i'm going to use a short base wig, cut and style it then add the odango's...the wig which would have been perfect for the base which had a back parting only ships to America >_< Oh and ElegantAura and myself found this site really useful for the Brides ref http://s68.photobucket.com/albums/i31/costumersguide/Van%20Helsing/aleera/ hope it helps ^_^

16 Jun 2010 - 10:0334517
oo thankies for the link =) it's gonna help me get all the details right!

Just a quickie what sort of fabric works best for the main body part of Sailor outfits? cuz it's very fitted and I've never used fabric that has stretch in it before lol

16 Jun 2010 - 10:2234519
Ive used matt white lycra (around £8.99 a metre at fabricland) You sew it with a zig zag stitch rather than a straight stitch cause of the stretch in the fabric

Hope that helps

oh thankyou ^_^ that's fab info =D!
