I pretty much wanted to do this costume since I was in middle school and when I lost most of my weight and baby fat. Finally, now that I'm in shape (except parts of my arms, I hate my arms), I was able to do my childhood dream cosplay.
Most of the costume I used Cupcake Cosplay's tutorial using Green Pepper Pattern F813. I didn't use knit stretch fabric for the bodysuit but instead used swimfabric in white. I put snaps in the bottom of the bodysuit instead of sewing it so I can go in and out easily.
For the V shape circle, the red on gloves and the sleeves, I used batting instead (polyfill was too lumpy when I did it).
The fuku instead of using satin like everyone else, I used kona cotton so it would pleat just like in the anime. I should have used a better cotton but that was all I could find. The fuku was hand sewn onto the V shape.
The sleeves I had three rolls instead of two (since I was doing 1st season Sailor Moon, not Super Inner Senshi).
The resin casting was castin craft resin from Hobby Lobby as well as the molds. The tiara was made out of craft foam sealed with modge podge. I'm remaking it bigger and smoother since I forgot to sand during each coat.
The broach I'm remaking too. I originally made it out of sculptey but that was too heavy so I'm using paperclay with water to smooth it as well as sand it.
The cresent moon wand I already had since I was in middle school where I bought it at a K-Mart for less than seven dollars.
I originally made my bootcovers but sadly, they were too big and the velcro didn't do so well so I had to buy the boots already made for when I wear it next time. If I start to made better ones, I will remake them but this will do for now.
The wig is a chibi from Arda Wigs. I know people want to stub them but I found a better way. I just folded the pigtails in half, pinned them, put the pre-made buns over them, pinned the buns, then tied the elastic and hid the elastic.
I would love to do more versions of Sailor Moon/Usagi/Serenity (Serena,Bunny in the English version) but I have a few other ideas to do before I do that..for now.
