Definitely I would go for photo 1 - Lower down on the hips. This way you can see your waist, which shows your nice shape.

Photo 2 - up on the waist makes it looks like you have no waist.

So yeah Defo on the hips is my op.

And yeah the links in your post above both lead to photo 2..I just clicked on 'Prev' to see photo 1
..also clicked 'next' and also saw your S Moon makeup ..very pretty. ^_^

I agree with Ranma 1-2, the lower down on the hips; you seem to have a very similar body type to mine (I'm guessing you're around 5'2ish?) so that little bit of change can make a HUGE difference!

p.s. since your body is like mine, watch your angles during photoshoots lol; some of the poses I did in my rogue costume made me look like I was 3 feet tall ToT )

I agree with Ranma and Rankin - definitely on the hips. If you make sure the hip roll on the sides is lined up with the top of your hip bone that should give you a longer torso and more defined waist - I don't know if it would apply to EVERY body shape, but it seems like a good rule so it's not too high nor too low.

XDD pffI'm way short for Jupiter, I'm only 5'3"

However, from what i've found, cosplaying alone, the height isn't as noticeable. But in a group, there should be a height RATIO, rather than straight up accuracy.

@steffi: hips. Also, angle the skirt a bit higher at your sides-back and lower at the front to give it a "dip" and it will help lengthen your torso. Also no seethroughness of your leotard! So goodjob! You do not have super short legs which is good which means you can pull off wearing the skirt on your hips. (also showing off your waist)

I aggree with klwmore on height. I am 56

I actually envy the taller sailor moon cosplayers, I don't like how my 4'11" legs look in knee high boots/mini skirts. I feel like I don't have enough leg to show.

I'm 5'2 and I still know what you mean! I have to have my skirts way shorter than everyone else's so my legs can look at least somewhat like the oh-so-non-realistic Sailor Moon legs XD if someone else were to wear mine their butt would be hanging out!

and klwpower I agree completely! That's why I'm nervous about my Sailor Pallas lol she refused to be Juno and she's 5'7 or 5'8 and the rest of us are 5'1-5'3 lol (my Juno is the 5'1 girl T_T) but we will see in may!

Oh, you're doing the manga version? *goes back and looks at your original post* ETERNAL Sailor Jupiter!!! Oh, I didn't see that before! Then I think your real hair would probably work. It would be a little light, but it wouldn't stand out. Definitely workable.

But if you do get that wig, you're going to need to get some wefts to sew into the back in order to put it up in the high ponytail. If you don't, well, this happens. Not so pretty, huh?
That's what I was worried about when I was looking at the wig. I looked for some pre-styled ones, but they are few and far between. Plus, I haven't seen any for sale that were accurate enough for me. LOL I'm not too picky normally; but this is my one last chance to go to A-Kon in a really awesome costume, so I want it to look as good as possible.

I'm still looking into the bangs thing. I'm gonna go look at a wig shop in my neighborhood that says they carry them tomorrow. *crosses fingers* The one problem is that they don't carry the real hair ones..only synthetic..

...I'm 5'7"...LOL Perfect height for Jupiter methinks. ^_^ I think that 4'11" is a great height though. I've always wanted to be shorter..>.<;
