I'm going to try to =)
I always take progress photos and upload them to my Photo Bucket with production notes. I just have to wait until I can get money and can get to the store that has the silicon/rubber I want to use. I'm hoping it comes together without too much stress since I have to make both mine and Hime No Toki's for her Eternal Chibi Moon.

Rantage:

one of the girl's in my cosplay dance group can't make it to our 2nd to final rehersal. Nor can she be bothered to show up to have HER COSTUME fitted to her which is being MADE FOR HER by another member-free of charge.
We've supplied her with everything basically and are doing this out of kindness.

But the fact that she doesn't even care to show up or give us a damn good reason, makes me Really Dislike her. It's more or less a slap in the face, and it's as if she has better things to do-when she really doesn't. She's fourteen, only has school and thinks being with her friends 24/7 is more important than spending one day with us. She honestly does not care-at all, and doesn't even seem appreciative.

It really disheartens me, and can't wait to work with our NEW Venus after this convention. <3

Note: Our convention is in two weeks, and this is why I'm so angry at our current girl. (Her entire family seems like this, unreliable and they just seem to expect things to fall in their laps-without a simple "thank you")

I've become an age stickler, and a person who wants people to LEARN on their own and not become so dependent. Maybe it's because I'm just really independent, and have always been so, and I don't break my promises that frequently but to me, it just comes down to reliability and being honest and actually Interested in the group.
/End Rant

Anyway; I'm excited, nervous, and keep having insane con dreams. I finished my collar for Chibiusa+shirt (minus snap+button fixture) and just have to sew on my straps+make a button hole(s) into my skirt. And that'll be finished.
I will not be wearing contacts because I feel that is an unnecessary expense at this point. And I also figure, naturally in normal circumstances, Chibiusa WOULD have blue eyes since both Usagi and Darien have blue eyes. Uh-durrr.... So that's my "artistic feat". Along with the buttons...

She inherited the red eyes from some other generation, probably. xD xD

As for the girl, lesson learned: don't trust kids. Kids don't know better and they still haven't learned of responsability. It's not our function to teach them that, it's their parents function. It will go better next time.

It'll be basically impossible to do it with fabric to get a PERFECT round shape like they have in the anime, unless you do the rubber/silicone way that ShiNo_Usagi was talking about. But to do it in fabric, all you need to do is add fullness to the cap and possibly to the hem of the sleeve, depending on how much "poof" you'd actually want.

I haven't really found a tutorial online that shows exactly what I'm talking about but I can recommend that you try and find one, or even try and find the book Patternmaking for Fashion design by Helen Joseph-Armstrong. Theres a few pages on it, which tell you exactly how to do it. I might make a quick tutorial if I have the time to. ^^; and sorry if this wasn't too much help.

I bought my fabric yesterday! I started cutting out the pieces for my skirt and collar, and when I went to add the stripe to my collar, I realized that Eternals have a GOLD stripe instead of a WHITE stripe. I bought white ribbon... /facepalm

Eternals DO have a GOLD stripe, right?

Yes they do.

But if you've added it now, you can either try taking it off and replacing it with gold ribbon or leave it be.
Chances are people won't notice. Besides, aren't there three small and really thin stripes on her collar - that makes it even more less noticeable.

Okay! So basically everything is done except the boot covers and the brooches and I'm pretty darn proud of it since it's my first 'real' cosplay. I've never really thought so in-depth about a project before (or stuck with something with such dedication) and I think I did a pretty good job:

Sailor Uranus Front
Sailor Uranus Back
Super Sailor Uranus Front
Super Sailor Uranus Back

Between the 'two costumes', the only things I'd be changing are the brooches, collar, back bow and either remove the third sleeve or the sheer part. I didn't have to remove anything else between switches. I'm really proud of that. (Especially the sleeves)

I haven't added the stripe yet.

And isn't Moon the only one with 3 stripes? Don't the rest have 1?

Moon always has more stripes than the rest. Yes, the rest have just one stripe for Eternal =)

It depends.. sometimes they're drawn with white and sometimes with gold; I've seen both cosplayed so it's more so up to you, whatever your preferences are

No one answered my question on the school uniform. How did you make the shirt? I would like to do both the Junior High and High School, summer and winter.

The shirts shouldn't be too hard to do! They're basically a simple pattern, and the sailor collars aren't too hard, theres a bunch of good tutorials, and I'm sure you could google other ones too!

To me, the shirts just seem like boxes, because they're not too form fitting, so I personally think its just a matter of taking your own measurements and just adding to them until they're more more box-like.

I don't know about your pattern making skills (Forgive me, I'm a big lover of making patterns from scratch) but I dont think it'd be too hard to do that, and I think the only major difference is the sleeve length. Which if you have the measurements, shouldn't be to hard to adjust. I'm thinking of eventually making some tutorials for Sailor Moon costumes since it was my favorite anime for the longest time.

If you google Sailor Moon School Uniforms you should see some images where you can tell that its basically a rectangle with sleeves and a sailor collar attached to it.

I just used a t-shirt pattern and modifed the neck line and length. That's what it looks like to me just a short t-shirt with a sailor collar.
