Super Sailor Jupiter

I have always been told that I look like Mako-chan since I was a little girl. I decided that because I already had an appropriate skirt from my Fuu costume, I'd make the rest of her fuku to go with it.
I chose to do her super version because I like the way the long ribbon on the back looks, but I had no idea it would be so much trouble. I had to debut this costume before it was finished to perform with AnimeMyu, but the sleeves are completely inaccurate and very dorky, not to mention that the gloves don't go up high enough on my arm because I didn't give them room to strech when I sewed the green bands on.
My final issue with this costume is the hair and tiara. I have bleached out long-style bangs, so I had to spray my hair brown for this costume and it was a mess... Not only that, but because my bangs were so long, it just didn't look right. The tiara is made out of fun-foam covered in gold PVC and it's held to my head with a hat string. That being said, it wasn't weighted down to my head, so it always tilted upwards while I wore it.
I will fix this costume's problems someday because I loved being Makoto, I just need to get around to it.... -_-
Also, I'm sorry for the terrible icon. I didn't get a proper shoot in with the costume so I had to pull the picture from a shot of the AnimeMyu performance itself... -_-;;
