My blood and tears went into this costume. More blood than tears, though, since I stabbed myself numerous times with my sewing needle and my tears were more from happiness. Initially, I was not going to sew my own costume, but I changed my mind, and now I'm glad that I did.
For my first attempt at sewing, I think I did a pretty decent job on the skirt and bows. I used a leotard for the base and altered elbow length gloves, but the hip roll and everything green or pink was made by me. This skirt/hip roll and collar are detachable, so I can reuse it if I ever decide to be a different Sailor Scout. However, because the skirt droops in back, I think I might attach the skirt to the leotard in the future. Also, I used stuffing on the hip roll and shoulder rolls, which turned out a bit lumpy, so I plan on remaking them with quilt batting.
The tiara, earrings, and heart broach were made by a friend who is currently majoring in jewelry and metals. The tiara is real metal bent in the shape of my forehead, and it's held in place by hair combs (welded to the tiara) and spirit gum for extra support. I will gladly pimp out my friend for anyone wanting to commission her for cosplay jewelry. ^_^
