Sailor Venus

Sailor Moon SuperS

Last Updated: 09-20-2010


My first attempt at a Sailor Scout outfit. Still have some things to tweek on it but for the most part not bad for my first try. (in my honest opinion) The design was modified from a childs and regular cheerleading patern. There was actually one made where the girl looked like Sailor Moon. The fabric was hard to find as I had to snatch it during Halloween. Good luck finding orange material any other time. The skirt was a new territory as my mom and I had never made a pleated skirt before. We soon called it the magic skirt 'cause it would shrink and grow magically with each fitting. One moment it was too large the next it was too small and so on untill it finally decided to work. We put a seam in the bust line to accentuate the curves and to add a detail included in the anime. The bows were also a new thing we had never done before and found it is much simpler than I had imagined. The bow in her hair was sliped over a barret for a better anchor. The button on the blue bow in front had to be painted orange. The bow was sewn onto the coller and the coller was designed to be removed as I used a leotard to get the effect of the outfit. Still trying to work on the waist roll, above the skirt, to give it a more tappered look. Each roll is individually sewn and stuffed then sewn together. The gloves were purchsed as was the tiara and leotard. The back, yellow bow has wire in it to give it the gravity defying look. I will replace the wire with a lighter weight, hollow alluminum wire at some point. The shoes were thrift store finds I spray painted orange. I hand sewed the ankle bands. After pouring over several pics I learned the ankle bands are not conected to the shoes so I just added a snap for easy removal. My hair is real and one of the reasons I decided to cosplay as Venus. I had a lot of fun making this and I now have an Artimis plushie I made to go with when I wear it again. :)
