Might Morphan Power Rangers The Movie
Last Updated: 09-27-2010
Our entire Masquerade group for Otakon 2010 which was just this past weekend! We didn't win (oh well 5 for 6, can't win 'em all! But congrats to those who did!!! =D), but our parody of "The Devil Went Down to Georgia" was a hit and we were stopped for so many pictures! We all had a blast!
We decided to go nostalgic on this one, choosing all old school characters (since we knew none of the boys would want to be involved in a Sailor Moon cosplay). I was Sailor Neptune, my partner Sheena was Chibi Moon, and my bf Keith was Ivan Ooze. The 3 of us together were responsible for creating all 7 costumes. The breakdown is as such!
Me- Soldiers: Bodysuits w/sleeves, most accessories, Kaleidoscopes, gloves, and overall assembly.
Ooze: double layer robes
Harlock: jacket, cloak, and sheath
Sheena- Soldiers: Skirts, collars, bows, boot trim, Saturn boots, and Chibi Moon wig.
Keith- Soldiers: Staff, glaive, mirror, and some accessories.
Harlock: gun, belt buckles, and boot cuffs.
Ooze: collar, belt, bracers, and all make-up/prosthetics.

There were a few challenging points that we were keeping in mind while designing this cosplay. The first being that Ooze has a super gaudy and probably super expensive costume made of supplies that were either hard to define or were obviously latex. The other being that we were going to be in Baltimore, late summer, and my bf :iconwolfmux: was going to be not only in layers, but a full face of latex and a helmet of plastic and various materials. We needed to do our best to keep the fabric parts as lightweight as possible to make him comfortable and melt as little as possible.
Layer 1: I used this very very lightweight black fabric with a gold shimmer. No pattern was used as I just used a bathrobe for size and shape reference. I did the same for the sleeves (but entirely winged the gathered shoulder puffs), making them outta fabric lining and using a dress shirt for reference. I bought two spools of lanyard to wrap around the sleeves, but we had no idea how little that actually was, so there isn't nearly as much around the arms as we would have liked.
Layer 2: The outer layer, again, referenced the bathrobe and winged the collar that was attached inside the edges to give the appearance of another layer. None of this sounds complicated, but it gave me more trouble than it was worth.
