I love your broach! so pretty! what did you use?

I have another question =w=
What is a good fabric to use for boot covers for SM's boots? I'm kinda lost because i've never made boot covers before

@benihine Most people use stretch vinyl, but I've seen it done with spandex too. Usually using a stretchy material makes it easier to but the boots on, but using non-stretchy fabric isn't unheard of. God Save the Queen Fashions has tutorials for both stretchy and non-stretchy boot covers.

http://www.godsavethequeenfashions.com/Tutorials.html

And someone, gold or yellow moon on the catzia boots? I need some help deciding.

I've decided to start working on an Eternal Sailor Saturn cosplay for an upcoming con! I have a few questions to ask...

Does anyone know of a website that has a bunch of official pictures of Eternal Saturn? I can't seem to find any :x

Also, from the few pictures I've been able to find, there seems to be some discrepancies with her star-broach color. In some I've seen it yellow, some purple, and some black. Does anyone know which one is manga-accurate?

And for those of you who have cosplayed eternals before: how did you make your star broach? Out of resin, foam, or some other method (what do you believe would work the best)? Did you purchase it (if so, from where?)?

Thanks!

I got boots off of ebay, they're suede, 3/4"-flat foot. Round toe, and a deep red, I'm adding pleather for the tops and a gold moon. Gogo boots look weird to me... considering Sailor moon actually has flat boots or 1" at most heels. Also-pain to walk in all day. D:

Boots One

Boots From nowdiscountshoes off Ebay (For Mercury, Chibi Moon, and Sailor moon options-can also find Star Lights and Pluto if need be) Prices vary

These are the boots I bought.

Anyway, hope that helps you!

Dears, today I need help with something completely different!

There is a competition coming by, next month, and I'd like to take Sailor Jupiter's costume! However I'm out of ideas to skits... Does anyone have any suggestion of what I could do with this costume, with a time limit of one minute?

Btw, if you feel like, please watch my first skit with this costume. It's the invokation of the thunder, with The Prodigy as background song. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aKhoud2H71w

From looking at my reference images it is purple in the colored manga artwork (found four images so far varying from light purple to dark purple). For the 2003 Japanese manga re-release when they put everyone on their own cover she has a yellow star brooch - which is odd because everyone else keeps their colored brooch. I don't think I've ever run into an image where Eternal Saturn had a black brooch.

@ airpwane: I would definitely say purple for Saturn's star

Just wear a tan/nude colored one. It won't show underneath the white. If you wear a white one however, that will show.

Thanks for the help Emrys and Rankin :>

I decided I want to use a satin for Eternal Saturn, since the manga pictures seem to show the fukus with a slight shine/shimmer on the skirts. I don't want something overly shiny, though. I came across delustered satin and something called "dull" satin. Are they the same thing?

Isn't it strange how that works? White + white=see throw. While tan isn't

I agree, it is very strange ^_^

I'll probably buy a tan colored sports bra then because i'm quite a bit bigger than Usagi, but i am not binding! gack no.

I ordered my base wig but it's on backorder so i'll have to wait until the end of april. oh well! I'll start working on accessories

I'm not necessarily sure what the difference is but try here.

But I agree, overly shiny satins tend to be the cheap ones. You can never go wrong with a proper bridal satin like Crepe Backed Satin, or even better, Duchesse Satin. Crepe, is a little more shinier than Duchesse, but Duchesse is extremely dull and has a nice feel to it.

Already planning for super sailor moon! Not due until august 2012 but oh well.

I am doing the manga version, and was thinking of using lycra so I can do the water color paint. Or is there a better fabric that has a good flow and slight shine that will adhere to fabric paints?

Lemme know!
