Sailor Venus

This whole costume is made from scratch, from my own drafted pattern.

It always bugged me how most sailor scout cosplay never fits correctly. So I drafted my own pattern so I could make one that fits the way it is SUPPOSED to. I'm quite pleased with the results. It just seems that in some cosplay, the skirt is way too high and then is too long. So I tried to correct that issue with this cosplay. Also, the shape of the skirt is normally wrong. In so many, their skirts are equal length all the way around whereas they are actually supposed to come up on the sides. I also corrected that issue with this cosplay.

There are 2 things I don't like about it - the sleeves and the brooch. Both need improvements and will be fixed when I have time. I am making a Pluto costume right now where at least one of those is being fixed. (Pluto has no sleeves.)

This was my "test dummy" if you will for this pattern. It's been pretty successful though so I hope to make a big scout group in the future using the pattern and mods of the pattern.

One of the things people ask me about it is "Why no pleats?" To answer that, in my opinion, I do not think pleats are required. That and I am basing my work on the manga which does not use pleats like the anime did. I think it is successful with just the folds. That and the folds allow it stick out in the appropriate places so it actually ends up looking more authentic in my opinion.
