Sailor Moon has always been my favourite Scout and was my favourite childhood character and inspiration through some of my formative childhood years. I had a silly Sailor Moon costume when I was a kid. My mom made it for me complete with a t-shirt base and a wig made out of yarn with a knit tiara. I loved it though and proudly wore it for 2 Halloweens. XD Now nearly 15 years later I was able to achieve a real childhood dream by Cosplaying Sailor Moon.
I told Ammie that I wanted to Cosplay Sailor Moon one day and she suggested while she was making me a Sailor Mercury costume that she could just make me glove tops, a choker, boot covers and new bows so I could just swap the bows out and re-use my Mercury fuku for Moon. I wasn't sure if the colours would work for Moon too, but I was super happy with the result!
The wig was really a concern for the costume. I was planning on ordering supplies to make my own wig, but then I found out that my friend Rankin24 had a Moon wig that she had purchased from HezaV, but it didn't fit her so I asked to buy it from her. I didn't expect it to be the perfect fit and I loved the colour on me. HezaV did a fantastic job on the wig. (^^)
The only real sewing that I did for this costume was to close a few seams and sew snaps to the glove tops to exchange my gloves that I had used for Mercury. I also did a bit of repair work on the brooch that I ordered. Ammie made me one but it sadly broke so I ordered one on Etsy from Ashlee. I used clay mache to fill in a few gaps in the resin. My odango shields were from Starlit Creations and my awesome friend Pan mcguyvered me a pair of earrings that I attached with spirit gum.
I didn't expect to have so much fun Cosplaying Sailor Moon. It was a total blast to wear at Otakuthon and I cannot wait to re-wear this costume again! I know Pan, Sakura and I have to at least Cosplay together and I would love for Ammie to join us as Jupiter. Now we need to find a new Mercury. XD
