Also, I have a quick question. Does anyone have any recommendations for doing the bows... like actual bows? As much as I value the sort of go to makeshift bows, I really want to try making them like a long strip, and building a bow from there. Any thoughts?

I pretty much do this method. (I am god-awful at explaining things, so finding tutorials I go! XD;; ) One extra step I add though is top-stitching the tail section after it's nicely ironed and before attaching it to the bow portion, both to ensure there's no chance of weird edge-rolling, and because I like how clean it looks.

Thanks! I was thrilled!!!! This is the first time I've won a majorprize. You guys helped me realise that my dream in making this cosplay wasn't so far fetched as it could have been. All the advice and tutorials were so helpful!

Congratulations Sakura_Petals!! I simply don't have the guts or energy to enter contests, so I admire you more for that! I'm really excited to see photos, the Photobucket one you linked is broken. (I really hate new Photobucket, what's even the point of having the option of original full-sized images if only you can access them? You already can access them on your own hard drive!)

Aww, thank you so much Prissi! I really love that furisode and I feel so lucky to have stumbled across it, and being able to lovingly repair a loose seam and a small stain. You really make an AMAZING Sailormoon! I admire the hell outta you and Sakura_Petals for tackling and pulling off amazing Myu Moons!

You look absolutely fantastic!

I'm currently totally dismayed by stupid midterms and essays at the moment, so I haven't been able to work on anything. D: Hopefully my roommate can help me hem my skirt tomorrow so I can add the horsehair and see how that went though!

Thanks everyone!!! It took awhile but now looking back at all the stress, blood, tears and hard work that went into it, I'm amazed it turned out the way it did.

I'm trying to find some better photos but there wasn't many photographers around. I'm considering trying to find a good photographer willing to get some good photos but again there aren't many in my city.

Alright, I'm admitting defeat in getting the refurbished S Saturn done in time for Sakuracon next week. XD It's not even that I can't (the main problem is needing to make another new collar - it's just too narrow and short in the front, almost looking like a PGSM-style fuku), but my current leotard fits poorly due to my improving posture since last year, and I need to put off making a new one as long as I can to allow for more posture improvement. I'd rather not rush out something I'm not 100% happy with, and it'll be a lot more fun anyway to take my time and work on this alongside Super Saturn's parts. I am very happy with my refitted skirt and improved hiproll, and I also improved the symmetry in my front bow, so it's not like I didn't get anything finished.

So Myu Saturn is rotating back in to take its place. *u* It'll be nice to get some photos of it with the remade earrings and brooch. I haven't gotten a chance either to take it out since I lost weight and toned up.


Edit: lol, I had forgotten I can't zip up Myu Saturn's back myself anymore because of my back muscle. XD If I hadn't known this from a previous try-on I would've panicked and thought it didn't fit at all anymore. Either way, I'm adding Myu Saturn's third leotard remake to the to-do list. I should also order that black tricot lamé and make new bows before these poor fragile tissue lamé bows disintegrate. (I can't believe they're the originals even, I first made this beast in 2005!)

Sui Kune you are going to Sakura-con? I hope we run into each other. I'm fixing a zipper problem in my Queen Serenity and doing repairs to my roommate's Princess Serenity for Sakura Con. I hope to see you there.
