Does anyone have or know where I can find a great tutorial on how to make Sailor Moon 's Crescent Moon Healing Wand? I would greatly appreciate it very much.

Any other wig suggestions? I'm probably looking in the wrong place.

Also shoes, what's the best method to go about Neptune's shoes? I'm guessing I'm going to have to dye some heels.
Check your goodwill/salvation army or any thrift stores near by! They sell shoes and you can honestly pick up a pair of teal heels for less than 10$ at goodwill. Then, just buy some teal ribbon from dollar tree or joann's/micheals and attach them to the heels by either sewing or using a glue gun. :}

Her shoes are actually really simple to find, you just have to look around. Especially since you have til' Halloween.

I hate to break it to you jjcpammc09, but I don't think anyone shares their secrets on how to make a Moon Stick. I'm not sure I've ever seen a tutorial for that. Sorry!

So my dress was taken up yesterday, yards and yards of material were cut off (I've got a whole bag of offcuts now!) and it looks great. The con is in two days. All I have to do is figure out how to attach the sleeve pieces and then I'm all done

Just because no one shares specifically how to make one, doesn't mean one can't use alternate and similar ideas from other props that share traits with the Crescent Moon wand.

@jjcpmmc09: http://www.soul-hunter.com/sailormoo..._moonstick.jpg This is what you mean, right? If you have time/money for a commission, you can see if anyone would like to make it for you.

Otherwise, you can probably get some idea from the Props and Accessories forum.

Actually, after not much looking, I found a tutorial on the Crescent Moon wand, in one ofthe directories. I hope this is what you're looking for: Tutorial: Sailor Moon's Moon Stick.

I'm also going to try to get my best friend to cosplay Usagi/Serena's white princess dress from the manga. Since we look very similar and all. :}

How hard of a challenge will it be? Mind you, I've only made some outfits. And one full dress from Moetan. I have a pink costume satin dress that needs altering and I planned on using as a base for the Chibiusa dress.

Also, has anyone in here made that one and can you give me tips? Or would it be cheaper to commission the gown vs making it by hand and buying all the fabric?
Can someone please please please give me some tips and idea's.

Also, i plan on making Chibiusa's spring school uniform (manga version) because it's so cute for Kumoricon 2010!
Any tips on making a school uniform would also be helpful!

I recently made a school uniform :3 Or made half of it from scratch, edited the other half from pre-existing clothing: http://phoenixspine.deviantart.com/a...usic-159232029

You can use the sailor collar pattern you would use for the Senshi outfit.
The skirt is a basic pleated skirt-- for mine, I used 22 pleats, and made sure that it was the length I needed: proportionate to me in reference to the character. The top of my skirt sits above my bellybutton and falls to where my hands naturally fall if i were standing up straight.

The white shirt is cropped to the length where my elbows fall, from what used to be a longsleeved white button down. I also added the sleeve detail after cutting it to the desired length and hemming.

The neck tie is just fabric in a long rectangle (hemmed of course) that i made sure went all the way around my collar and down to where it needed to be.

It was fairly easy to do, just a lot of little detail things that needed to be done.
If you need a more indepth explination, feel free to pm me, so I don't spam here :3





@Neptune wig: This may be an option if you don't mind buying through ebay.

Thank you. :} That makes sense, and your uniform came out pretty cute. I don't know if I'd want as many pleats as you had...

The one with short sleeves^

I'm more concerned about the shirt than the skirt. But did you also add a zipper for closure on the skirt??

No problem ^^ and thank you :]
It looks like you could use a 'standard' 16 pleats for Chibi's uniform, but if you wanted to go for less, I think it would still be fine.
Her shirt also looks like it is cropped to where her elbows are, and her skirt sits at the usual place for this type, above the belly bottom, most probably.
for my skirt, I hand sewed a strip of snap tape as a closure.
I've tried out zippers, velcro and snap tape for skirt closures, and my personal preference is snap tape ^^;



@jjcpammmc: You can buy Spirit gum at your local Party City, or from sites like this one. Anywhere that's theatre/costume related store :]

Alright! back from holiday and on the ferry home whilst I type this... tomorrow I will go back to the fabric store and exchange my blue cotton Lycra into the RIGHT shade of blue, I will bring a scrap reference with me this time. Then I can print out a pattern that I found for a sailor collar and start! Then all I have to do is do the hip, sleeve and glove rolls (pffft, easy!)
