Cool Princess Serenity

I have never done a cosplay before and want to do one on Princess Serenity? Where do I begin looking on making her outfit on a limited budget?

Thrift stores or dress outlet stores can be very helpful and inexpensive~ I know for myself I bought a long wedding style dress, or you can check Ebay.

Another option is when you create the sleeves, try using white (fake) flowers at a dollar store. I know I'm speaking of cheap but I'm on a limited budget too. What else are you looking for in terms of this? Are you seeking ways to creating props, like her Star Locket? May I suggest a Tuxedo Mask plush and/or Luna plush?

If you have any other questions, feel free to comment here. =)

A great base for this dress is a white bandeau style dress, these can be found for under 20 dollars on amazon. I am working on this for my sister and adding an overlay and some other details. I love the flower idea. When looking at the art work of her dress those sleeves are not actually attached to the dress and could be made like armbands..

It might also help to use visual reference for the dress that Naoko Takeuchi used as her inspiration for Serenity's dress - Google Dior's Palldio dress! It actually provided me with a real life reference in similarity, and helped drum up some ideas.
