Lol this character changing is making my brain hurt! XD

As for the material...well mine is already made obviously and it is kinda shiny...but not in an overly shiny tacky way, just a nice shine, and you can buy that type of material if you're willing to fork out a bit more... But dont let me influence you, make it out of whatever you like. ^_^

out of curiosity, what fabric are people using for the skirts, collars and bows etc? i have a strong disliking to satin/lining fabric (ie: shiney) on Sailor Senshi fuku but if everyone is gonna be using those then i might as well fit in and use it too! >w<


When i first started cosplay i always thought No to shiny sailor suits! and forbbid myself to go near the stuff if i ever made a uniform...but then...i changed my mind, I saw this picture and thought actually it does'nt look bad at all and it does give a nice variation.

It seems to really suit the StarS uniform like moonlilys' :3

But to be honest i'm not hughly fussed. I'm gonna make a skirt out of 'non-shiny' fabric and see how that sits first.

I personally love the not so shiney satin for the Eternal Outfits as there not to glarry looking an photograph well, but just means abit more price...(though mine is gunna end up uber expensive no matter what I do because of the wings!)I love Moonlilys and the cosplay above :3

but what do you guys wanna do? shall we all try and co-ordinate are costumes with similar material like the cosplay above?

@Scarlet shall talk to you later today about sailor scout outfits ^^

@Ellie I talked with Senshibaka and she's happy to be Mercury.

@Silver I'm allergic to real gold so I know the pain >.< However I can youask the women to transform the star earrings into clip ons for , but I know they can be tragic pain to wear!

and I will happily order all the broaches/earrings ^_^ as long as you guys can pay me at either expo/ball/minamicon? and be collected by either me/uni. I like the idea of getting bits early and such and maybe if anyone has spare time at up and coming cons we should have a mini meet?

and Tiaras I would suggest

gahh long post!! apologises!

The Tiara's are pretty but cost too much for my likling, i'm gonna go for the old craft foam, glue and spray paint for mine! >:3
I think co-ordinating the costumes would be great! If we could all use the same pattern that would be fantastic.

Expo is good for me...seeing as we'll be meeting up there anyway it makes sense (you mean oct right?) I only need the earrings though obviously. I don't think i'm going to minami this year though...gonna try Kitacon instead. ^^


17 Sep 2008 - 10:406219
yeh sure, well same for silver I can give the bits too you during our group meet at expo ^^


17 Sep 2008 - 11:426220
after talking to Uni, I'm setting a deadline to order Broaches/Earrings/Chokers for everyone, you have till next wednesday evening guys.

(Plus I thought I would give it a week to see if we can rope a couple more scouts and make sure they're no more changes)

Though I don't need to be paid until October Expo/Grand Ball or Minami. IF your not attending either you can pay
by paypal and I can post them to you. And I'm trusting you guys to pay me

I just emailed the women to see how long it would take for her to deliever them. HOPEFULLY before expo *crosses fingers*

Sorry if I sound pushy I like being organised and I'm so excited about this group! :3

so yeah guys please state what you need. I am only ordering Eternal Broaches, Eternal Chokers and Eternal Earrings.

That works brilliantly for me! ^^ If you just get the broach, and the collar (and let me know how much I owe you!) I'll email the admin of the website about the earrings to be on clips. My rose ones are on clips... its going to be odd as I haven't worn earrings for years!

woah! that is one manly Uranus in that picture. you're right the shiney DOES look good, especially in the group. ^^ you guys win! xD

where can one buy that KwikSew pattern?

i'll be needing the Uranus brooch in that case.... i think it's navy blue?
*goes to double check*
yeah navy cause her bow is yellow.
and her collar pleeeease

uhm uhm.... what else..... i think this is where my 6 ear piercings come as a disadvantage considering Uranus only wears plain gold hoops (T_T how very chav) i'll have to co-ordinate them. >w<

are people going to be using actual ribbons for the ribbons at the back or tubes of their fabric?
Are we going to be making the under parts out of lighter coloured satin/shiney or netting? (it looks like netting in the pictures but i'm just being a dead fish here. "only dead fish go with the flow"

i apologise for the novel of a post

The lighter underskirt looks to be shiny too.
I don't think there's as much netting on these ones. Just a little to make it foof out, cause the extra layer of shiny probably works fairly well.

(Yay. More sewing of netting. >__< )

Hey, just thought, Hexi, are you going to Ayacon? Cos if not, I wouldn't mind being Uranus then ^^ Then there's no worries about us swapping everything over. Anyway, give me a heads up! ^^ Toodles!

17 Sep 2008 - 16:306227
Well I plan on going to Aya and October. I have nothing booked for October, so can do this then.
And Aya I only have two definates, so can do Eternal Jupiter then too. :3

So I'm good for both! (As long as the day/time is decided fairly sharpish; so I can work Soul Calibur and Grandia around them).

Sunday works for me. Masquerade too. But dear god... no dancing. I cannot dance. At all. Seriously. It would be dangerous. Maybe we could do a walk-on-walk-off group?
Like group walk on, big group pose, each individual goes up the catwalk poses, goes back to their place, and then the next person goes up?

Walk in, walk off is fine. Along with some posing. We were talking it through ^^. So yes, let me make that clear....

NOOOO DANCIIIIIIIIIIIIING!

Aiko agrees. if anyone saw aikos awkward dancing at ame ball u understand the rule no dancing ^^' (monkey agrees)

no dancing. sailor moon doesnt need dancing. >w<
masquerade sounds like fun though. and sunday is fiiine withs me! ^^


by the way, what is everyone doing about foot wear?
i don't have any white boots (i do have silver ones though) i was gonna say maybe long knee high socks and high white shoes? but that might not look right.

me and monkey are booting it, jst found £20ish ones on cosworx

aww but u got a whole yr to save up for a pair of boots orrrrrr try shoezone or cheap shoe shops Uni found a pair of cheap white boots awhile ago for her cosplay ^^


17 Sep 2008 - 17:386234
I did! But they are the wrong shape, my plan is (If i can't find anymore white shoes) is find the right height/shaped shoe and paint them white or make boot covers! :3
