kiichigo: just get some nice heels that match your costume. and do what my friend did, she just made a ribbon/fabric loop to go around her ankle. its not as accurate [since its not connected] but it will serve its purpose

Maybe try these from the marketplace? I'm not sure if they've sold or not but the price is "Best Offer" so you'd be able to haggle with the owner and whatnot to hopefully buy them cheaper than you're seeing them elsewhere.

Aw, thanks for the help <3 Sadly those shoes in the marketplace are too big for me <.< I'll look there again during the following days, but otherwise I'll just take Aurora's suggestion and do the strap myself (maybe I can sew it on to the shoe or something)

<3 No prob! I agree - you'd probably be better off just adding the strap yourself.

In other news, I've constructed the brooch out of Sculpey (even if my grout plan was working out how I'd like it to, clay is just easier and quicker to use), using several rhinestones to create the pink centerstone as well as the four red, yellow, green and blue stones on the outside. I've also used a large orange/yellow stone in the center to reflect the light and created a small crescent for the center. Hopefully I'll have pictures soon!

PS: A big bag of rhinestones = endless entertainment.

I want a big bag of rhinestones...
So, I think I have lost my mind. Depending on budget/time I'm thinking of make Usagi's high school summer uniform for otakon. If not for otakon then definately for Another Anime Con. My question is -should I make a shirt or can I just add the collar on to an existing shirt?

It is so fun to have; in fact, my friend is having an impromptu birthday party tonight and I shall be making her a princess crown using the excess (which is a ton) - and yes, we are indeed very childish.

You're going to AAC? I may be there as well, and if I end up going I'll be Sailor Moon. We'll have to get a picture together!

As for your dilemma... if you're seriously going to make it for Otakon and think you could find a high enough quality of shirt, just alter. If it doesn't turn out as well as you'd like, you could always make a whole new shirt for AAC.

If it helps - in my experience with uniforms, I just bought and altered a shirt and it turned out fine.

If you don't have much time then I'd go with buying an existing shirt that looks similar, and then, if you plan to wear the cosplay again, you could always re-do the top yourself. If you plan to do this however, make sure you make the sailor collar detachable if you don't fancy making another one when coming to re-do the shirt That's the way I'd go about it.

Thank you for your help! At work we sell t-shirts that look similar and have the little pocket. I figure I'll attach the sailor collar via snaps or buttons. That way if I want to make the winter version for cooler events I only have to switch it over. I'm making a fabric store run later, if I can find the right color for the right price I'm try to have it done for otakon.
@caisse ooh! We should try and meet up if you do make it to aac! My colleges anime club has gone the last 2 years, it's fun!

They are a bit pricey, but Catzia (http://www.catzia.com/tiaras.htm) sells them. I bought my tiara from her and its great.

I bought my tiara from Catzia aswell, her work is very high quality so i'd recommend her. But for the odango covers, if you don't fancy buying them then you could always make your own

Sailor Moon cosplay?

Ok, does anyone know if there is a good website or forum that is dedicated to Sailor Moon cosplay and how people make their costumes?
I'm looking for a good guide to making the Sailor Scout uniforms (season 1)
Thanks in advance.

I too would be interested in such a site. I have a Sailor moon costume that I bought off eBay, but I really want to make my own.
