Sailor Moon (Retro Space Girl)

Retro Space Girl Fanart

Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon

Last Updated: 01-11-2017


My friend NeoQueenHoneyBee and some of her friends were planning a group of these for Katsucon. She approached me asking if I'd like to be their Sailor Moon and as soon as I saw the artwork I couldn't wait to make it!

Original fanart: http://hyamei.deviantart.com/art/Retro-Scouts-393932077

I already had the buns and ponytails from my regular Sailor Moon wig. Problem was, the placement of the cutouts on the helmet didn't match the placement of the buns on my wig! So, I bought a matching short wig to wear under the helmet. I attached the buns from my normal wig to the short wig through the cutouts in the helmet.

For the helmet, I used a felt Leprechaun hat from the craft store as the base. I cut it down the middle from front to back and used thick foamies to make it a little bigger so it would fit over my wig. I covered the whole thing in white felt and then in white spandex to match my bodysuit. I used a visor from a motorcycle helmet and a heat knife to cut it down to size. Pink and gold glitter vinyl was used for the accents.

The collar is a triangle. I put wire inside of the folded over edges so I would be able to make it stick up. It velcroes shut in the back and velcroes to the bodysuit in the front. The stripes are glitter ribbon. The heart and waist moon were 3D printed by our Pluto's hubby. :3

I used the skater pattern from Green Pepper for the leotard base and spandex that was collected by Ceratopian, our Mercury. The sleeves and glove/boot/waist rolls are glitter casa overlayed with glitter tulle to make it super sparkly like the vinyl.

We used glitter vinyl for the skirts. The skirts are made from 3/4 circles. For my skirt, I added some silver trim that wasn't present in the original artwork, both to match the rest of the group better and to have somewhere to slip some steel hoop boning to make my skirt stick out.

The boots are just some old boots I had lying around. I cut the height off of them and added the pink rolls.
