White lycra is great for the main part of the fuku. Then, for the skirts, you can use satin, cotton or more lycra. Just depends on what you're comfortable with...

I used white swimwear/dancewear for the leotard, hip roll and gloves (not sure exactly what the material is but that is what the category was called). It comes in a thicker t-shirt-y like weave and a more expensive shiny-sided weave like if you were making a fancy gymnastics costume. I splurged on the shiny weave and had to double up on it because it is a bit thinner material.

The dance/swim wear is stretchy in all directions which is sort of a requirement if you are building the leotard from scratch. Otherwise you'd have to be able to measure and cut it exactly to the size you need it - considering I've never tried that I can't say how hard that method would be vs a stretchy leotard.

You can use any fabric you like for the skirt/collar, but if you are using a pattern (like a leotard w/ attached skirt) that recommends using all stretchy material and you have non-stretchy fabric for the skirt you will need to make a few adjustments in the size of your pattern and how you stitch the two fabrics together.

**eh, sorry if that doesn't make any sense. It kind of depends on your approach and what materials you have so this might not apply to you.

Ah, the glove rolls. Well I basically just measure around my arm which came to about 22cm (including seam allowance) then I cut out four rectangles (22cm by 9cm (including seam allowance of 0.5cm)) then I put two and two rectangles together to double the material up then stitch around the edges but leaving a small section open. Then you turn both glove rolls inside-out and then using a tailors chalk or pencil, draw out two lines which separates the rectangle into three sections, stitch along these lines but again, leaving a small section at the end, unstitched, then get your batting our stuffing and start stuffing the segments until poofy. When all three segments are stuffed, stitch up any holes left that were needed to stuff the glove roll. Then bend the gloveroll into a cylinder shape and hand stitch that up and tada! You have your glove roll.

To make it more sense, here's my finished product:

Hi everyone! I love reading this thread. ^^

I am currently making a Sailor Saturn costume. I'm about to tackle the skirt (>.>) and have a question. I'd prefer not to attach the skirt to the leotard, as I'd like to use the leotard for future senshi costumes as well as possibly wearing the skirt in other places. So I thought about putting in an elastic waistband to make sure it stays up.

But then I remembered the V dip in the front. Now... is there any way to make an elastic waistband skirt with the V and actually have it stay properly? Should I just make it a straight waist and try to create the illusion of a V with the hip rolls?

Thanks for your help! <3

I'm not sure if it would work, but you could maybe attach it via buttons or snaps so you could change out the different colors. You would have to make the collar and the bow detachable as well. But it's a good idea if it will work, then you could save money on the leotard!

steffi: i don't know XD i'm trying to get the majority of the group first, my mars is my luchia though, and my taalll friend is gonna be my lina lols.


izzah: my friend made her skirt a separate piece. she attached the skirt to the hiproll. then put snaps along the hiproll. such as at the v. the 2 inches to the side of the v. at the top of the hip. and in the back. plus snaps to put the bow over the seam line of the hiproll.
it looked good when it was finished

When we made Sailor Moon costumes in high school we made the skirts attached to a white "base" to give it the V. Basically the skirt starts at the waist and then down a few inches you start the skirt which follows the V shape down. It's really rather ghetto looking though. ^^;;

If you don't need the skirt to be secured you could try wire. Maybe attach the hip roll to the top of the skirt to hide the seams and the wire. It's just a thought though and I doubt anyone has actually tried that route before haha. I suppose you could always safety pin it in place even without the wire or a base to get the V shape - it could work.

I had to contemplate this question too when making my Neptune cosplay. It does seem more economical to have detachable skirts but honestly it will look better if you can attach it to the leotard.

Well I'm just helping other's through my experiences and thoughts of making my first costume so they can try out the way I did my stuff and if it doesn't work for them then they can look for other ways. I should make some tutorials.
