The wig is the first wig we got for the roomie's Princess Serenity, but it was too small for her head and not the greatest quality, but it was available for this last minute cosplay.

Princess Serenity was a much more complicated beast. That is about 3 dress patterns Frankenstiened together and all of them vastly altered due to the fact that no one makes plus sized patterns that anyone actually wants to wear. I did all of the work on the bodice by hand including hand beading the pearls on for her circles. I even styled the wig from an Arda Chibi and a long ponytail clip.

Care to take a look? http://www.cosplay.com/photo/3219644/
Totally gorgeous.

Thanks! I'm really proud of how these turned out.

For makeup, I learned a lot from Kandee Johnson on youtube. I used this tutorial as a jumping off point along with doing lots of contouring on my face to make myself look a little more feminine.

As for pics, I don't think I have very many... I'm still waiting on my friend/photographer to edit the stuff from the photoshoot we did.

arick86: Wow, good work here Really nice crossplay. Only thing I could critisize is that you always lift your chin a bit to far. Try tilting it downwards a bit, Uranus mostly has an intense look up

I have finally conquered the sailor collar from hell. omg. x__X;
Progress picture

It took far longer than I had anticipated... leaving me a week to finish my wings and wig. It has been by far the worst part of this costume to date...
The wig dyeing is giving me total hell; I threw 3-4 days into that trying to get it to turn out yellow. I may have to cut my losses though, and settle for a yellow wash of color instead of getting it to a bright yellow. :/

Good job prissi, I wish I was as far as you but alas, exams >.>

For my own skirt I did try a few things to help it get more ruffly, like the effect horsehair braid would of done. So I thought about putting wire through the hem, the first wire I used to test one layer fanned it out too much and was difficult to bend, but I have a more thinner and easier wire to bend so I may try that out c:

Ooh I'm so tempted to work on it!

I am just bursting at the seams excited to show this off.

One of my dream cosplays is Hotaru's New Year Furisode. "Dream" because my hands are far too shaky to ever be able to reliably paint a furisode and obi myself, so I've been waiting to find their real-life counterparts. I'm especially wanting to do this cosplay because it combines two passions of mine: cosplay and vintage kimono collecting and the art of dressing.

Well, a few days ago I finally found the real-life counterpart to Hotaru's furisode! I got this beauty for a deal because a seam needs repairing (quick work, all I need is some silk thread) and a couple small stains I'm not worried about. It's exactly what I interpreted the motif for Hotaru's furisode being, branched white plum blossoms. This is actually far more dazzling than I dreamed, even, those plum blossoms are rising upwards in a rather unusual way, which like the listing description said, gives it such an uplifting feeling.

I'm so excited to receive this beauty and lovingly repair it. I still need a boatload of accessories (red furisode juban [underkimono], green date-eri, pink obijime and obiage, a complementing pair of zori) and the branched plum blossom and crane fukuro obi (another difficult search), but I'm unbelievably happy that such a big item has been found and crossed off!

I also plan to have a neat little accessory, a Silence Glaive Eto-Hamaya (scroll to bottom of page), as seen in this common image of Hotaru in kimono. Unfortunately I'm not at all skilled in woodworking for carving a 28" miniature glaive, so I might have to look around for someone to commission. I wish I wasn't so awful with such things. T-T

Just happened across this thread, so maybe my two cents will help? I made a scout as a project for school. All my work is here, and I'm actually in the process of cleaning/repairing/remaking a lot of Pluto and Saturn for an upcoming con. Maybe updated casual Hotaru and Setsuna clothes in the future?

My jaw literally dropped. Can't wait to see it finished!!


I debuted my Sailor Moon costume a year ago but never got pictures. This past April I updated it for another con and finally got pictures a few weeks later. This is my third fuku and I'm so happy with how it turned out.
