Serenity's hair does curl at the bottom. If you want, you can watch this tutorial on how to hot water curl a wig.

I'll be ordering my wig tonight - and schumi girl, where in the hell did you get your wig from? The person that sold it to you obviously can't style a wig :/ You should complain. Anyway, I received my brooch in the post today from a seller here on cosplay.com Only was $65 all together (cheap on my side since that's around £40) And it's great quality (1st season brooch by the way). Just need to get the 2nd season brooch.

On the bad side of things... I went to FabricLand to get more blue fabric so I can do the collar, forgot to bring a sample of my old blue material and ended up buying the wrong fabric (was same type of cotton lycra but wrong shade of blue) now I have to go all the way back and don't know when that will be because I'm going on holiday this week T_T. Dammit I won't be able to work on my costume until I come back... Fooey. Meh, hopefully tomorrow my costume will be fully constructed (without sailor collar) and only have the collar, hip rolls, glover rolls and sleeve rolls to do - then it's done!

I got it from MiraiTrunksLove, she's really good with communication and gives you pictures on request, I really recommend her. Well I'm in college right now whilst I type this, so I'll try and get pictures up tonight. ^_^ The brooch is larger and thicker than I thought lol, I hope my bow is able to withstand it. (It does have a necklace strap to it, but I'll need to find a way to secure it properly).

I also look on ebay for any brooches/ wands.

Steffi I got my wig the same place I got my costume, FM-Anime. I'd complain but it's not going to do any good now, my conventions in a week. I got my wand a few days ago too. It's perfect except for being snapped in half

I think I'll be skipping this convention's cosplay, there's not enough time to fix everything.

Maybe I could sell it online.

Dang Schumi girl you're getting some really bad luck, I feel for you. You bought all that stuff, don't sell it now, wear what you've got and be proud of it! Chances are you'll be the only one who knows about the mistakes in your cosplay. Ignore anyone that will judge you otherwise.

Next time might I suggest Ebay? I just ordered my wig, unfortunately didn't get the one I wanted since it's nowhere to be seen, so I compromised with my second fave plus it was less expensive too.
For your wand try gluing it, hot glue guns can be your best friend, nobody will notice since you'll be holding it the wand anyway.
Wig issues, do the thing with using hot water what people have stated above, do section by section to make it easier. Your wig just needs a tidy up that's all. You CAN fix it all up by your convention, get somebody to help you do the wand and dress and you can focus on the wig. That's what family and friends are for right? Helping.

At the end of the day you'll be enjoying yourself instead of worrying.


Update:

Got pictures of my brooch, cor, it looks small in the pictures but is really large in real!

Here is the brooch when it's closed:

I don't think these would be great for any senshi except Sailor Saturn, they are perfect for her! The best Sailor Moon boots I have seen are the ones you get on here at Cosworx, the Gogo Boots.

Thanks for the positvity Steffi

Guess I'm just sad at my bad luck. I actually did get my costume off eBay, she set up a website about a month ago.

My main concern is the fact that I only have three days to fix everything.

Another thing is the dress is reallllllly long. Guess I'll have to enlist my boyfriend to help me carry it around!

You're very welcome :P Just eat lots of sweet things to get a sugar rush through you, and you'll get your stuff done in no time ^_^ Three days should be enough though, at least fix the wand, the wig will just get messy at the end of the day anyway so just fix it up a bit and put lots of gel/hairspary on it. Oh, might I suggest you bring a little sewing kit with you at the convention just in case more bad luck heads your way (shouldn't do).

I think I might have to cut the bottom of the dress, it's just ridiculously long.

I'm going to try and do the wig tonight, I'll let you know how that goes.

Thanks

The sleeves are going to be too hard to attach, I think I might skip them out this time.

I have a Chii dress that was horribly long and people kept stepping on it :/ Cutting and hemming the ends will only take about half an hour, quick job done ^^

Thing is, I know Serenity's dress is meant to be long. But surely not this long.

*measures it*

It's at least 80cm long after the 'short' bit.

Here's a picture of it. http://i672.photobucket.com/albums/v...l/IMG_3034.jpg

So even the 'shorter' part comes down past my feet, the long part is ridiculous.

Wow looks gorgeous!
Just be brave, get someone to help you so you can put it on remember WEAR the SHOES you will be wearing with the dress (because of the heel height), get the person to pin it up where it needs to be. Then cut it down leaving a nice allowance and stitch the hem over - you can do a rush job - tack/baste stitch it in place temp just for the con and then do it properly afterwards.

You've been looking forward to doing this cosplay for this con, if you don't wear it now you'll probably feel sad at the con and wish you had. For the wand ask dad or someone to fix it while you work on the dress. You can do this. As someone told me - miracles can happen.
