Sailor Venus (Eternal) - Sailor Moon



Photos

 


Information

First things first, i actually had little part in making this - was made by my lovely girlfriend Lulu Rose! (the Mars in the photos: see http://www.cosplayisland.co.uk/costume/view/12635 !).

As for why? good question...why not is a better one. However, I do have to admit at the time of wearing this, I've only watched the first season of the anime. I now intend to hunt down the manga for both Sailor V and Sailor Moon, as an equal mix between feeling i should know more about a character if i'm cosplaying them and also so i can actually remember suitable poses! A side affect of these cosplays is I've turned Lulu Rose into a Sailor Moon fangirl......woops?

I did get considerable amusement from the "Trap factor" when wearing it, as apparently I pulled this off quite well if the surprise from many people on realising i'm a guy was any indication.

Chances are it'll be worn again some time, although I currently don't know when, as theres a small handful of improvements and additions needed. If theres a specific call for it for a convention (sorry no Expos for this one i dont think!), i'll see what i can do.

Jun I didn't even bat an eyelid, I had NO CLUE you were dressed up like that! I could (and probably did) walk straight past you and not notice you, straight out best sailor moon trap of the group! XD

Thanks for the compliments all! As i said in the info bit though, i mostly sourced the patterns needed and helped find fabric etc, with only a small amount of actual making. Given theres at least 2 other versions of Venus i'll probably have a crack at, i now know roughly what i'm getting into for next time though! ;) Manjou - yeah it was fun confusing people i knew with it, so don't worry you weren't the only one! =P Nami and Moonlily - cheers guys, it was great being in the group with you; you both made fantastic scouts ^^ Minxie - rubbish darling; i don't have anywhere near your 'assets' and figure! Although I may be trying to catch up to your number of senshi fuku at some point! I think i'll pass on the sparkly musical ones though... XD Amy-lou - Cheers; i dunno if you were with everyone when i dropped by the HQ all dolled up or not but that was quite funny (there were that many of us in and out at different times i forget who was there when!) =P I see you're doing Pluto for Expo; i'm sure it'll be fantastic given the other things you've made previously.

nawww thanks for moon commment! you made an epic venus seriously! you better be up for more senshi fun at amecon :3

Junta posted on 3 September, 2009 - 17:03
For Ame, depends which variants people are going for, but fuku shouldnt be an issue. I'll have to pass on the princess ones though; no easy way of doing fake boobs in those outfits! Also we may now be doing Mars and Venus again at October Expo now we know various people staying near the centre (no cross london cosplay travel!), so i don't know if you're still needing either for whatever the plot now is.

Junta posted on 13 December, 2009 - 01:29
Haha cheers Jeff - your Neptune was excellent too I'm still getting the occassional person with it =P Also if its any consolation, so did most the group for most of the gathering - I'm surprised given my voice *really* isnt the most feminine ever XD
