Oh! And what about the sleeves? For anyone who's done anything like this, did you have them attatched? Or not? How do you suggest doing them, anyone?
I coulnd't find any decent pictures in my archive, but I can tell you that in the back, the gold circles dip down into a slight V shape until it meets the lavendar back bow.

for a pattern, I'd suggest vogue 8115. that's what I used for my Neo Queen Serenity gown and the only modification you'd really need to do is make the skirt part into a circle skirt and add a second layer. You could do that with two separate pieces of fabric, or you could just add a little ruffle layer to the lining on the back of the top layer so it LOOKS like you have two. less fabric saves money.

for my princess serenity sleeves, i had to dust off my old geometry skills. Just think of them as a cylinder. The front and back of the sleeves would be the circles and then the top and side would be a rectangular piece. Stuff them with batting and add little triangular pieces to the bottom for the little "pokey things." I don't know what to call them! LOL Then, add a strap of clear elastic to keep them on your arms and use fashion tape to keep them in place.

Gathering might work, but sometimes, I see skirts that are gathered and there just isnt' enough flounce to them. To add to Alexia Ishtar's explanation, I'd suggest making the skirt somewhat reminiscent of a circle skirt and THEN gathering it so that it's even poofier.

My comissioner AnnAnime who is making my Super SailorMoon costume was
gracious to fill out some infomation about her experience on making her own
Sailor Moon costume. I hope all of this will prove to be helpful for people here.

==Senshi Fuku==
-Did you use a figure skating uniform or t-shirt or leotard as a base?
Skating Uniform but it was completly made using patterns meaning
I did not go and buy a Leotart and then add onto it.

-Is your collar attached or removable?
It's removable but I can do it anyway you like.

-How does your collar attach/is it attached all the way around?
it goes all the way around and can either Velcro in the front at the
ends or just be sew together to go over the head.

-Where did you get the 'button' in the center of the bow?
Button? I don't know what you mean but everything on the costume,
I made myself.

-Did you stuff the piping around the skirt and sleeves with cotton fluff
or batting?
For the White puffy part I used Batting and the Gold peice I uses a
Thick interfacing.

-Where's you get the shoes?
I made them myself using a pair of dress shoes and a thick Fabric and
a Zipper and other materials.

-What's your opinion on boot covers?
I think bootcovers are good too if you need to spend less but they're
less realistic in my own opinion but that's just me.

-How'd you make your tiara?
My Very First Tiara was very simple... I used a Gold fabric, interfacing
and Elastic but there are lots of other ways I can make you like using Wonderflex and paint. I can do either way and I have all the stuff to do
it if you would like to see my different ways I can make them?

-Do you carry accesories with your costume?
When I wear the costume I carry her Wand with it.... that's about it
besides gloves.

-Anime or manga?
Anime mostly

-What fabric types?
For the Leotard part I used Stretch cotton knit and the Skirt and Collar
I used Satin... I prefer bridal Satin though. For the Shoulder rufflels I
used a Sheer Fabric.

-How much did it all cost?
For the materials it cost about $60-$80 depending on the materials
you want.

-Did you pleat your skirt?
It can be done either way but My very frist one was pleated.

-Have you ever seen or used the McCall's discontinued Sailor Moon
pattern? To make my Very First one that I made for myself, I did
use it only to give me an Idea,,, since it was Child size I had to
remake the pattern to make it. Then I found another pattern to
use for the costume
that has the panties made into it with the Skirt attached.

Ok, some exciting news to report here on what's happening with me and
my cosplay. February is the month things with AnnAnime making my Super
Sailor Moon costume is working on my costume hard this month and next.

This also includes of sending progress pictures which I plan on sending
them on here as well as they will be added to my photo album on here,
don't worry I'll be sure to remember to send links so people can comment.

Even lunaladyoflight who (if you are reading this) is working on my wig,
which again I look forward to recieving sometime hopefully in the following
month. In fact, everything should be running on schedule and I'll likely be
preparing myself for heading out to the US a couple days early but I'll do
my best to report back here before SakuraCon. 3 months to go...I can't wait!

Aww thanks guys *blushes*

I'm doing a Sailor Venus for myself this spring. Depending on schedules I hope to attend Acen. :P

I'm just going to get a bang addition for venus too, since I have blonde hair.

Luckily I've got Mimette to help me. She's a wiz with a sewing machine. I come in and do our group's wigs. Yay!!

I'm excited because I get to work on a Nephrite, Chibi-Moon, Human Luna, and Jadeite sometime this spring/summer. I plan on an Intergra Hellsing sometime too (with accurate bangs). :P

yea, most of our group can't make it. I hope they can. Lehulei is our Mars so I know she'll be there. Catboi blues is Nephrite. Our Jadeite is one of the Youmacon officials. :P

I might be Mimette's model or assistant. I don't think I'll have Manga Supermoon done in time unfortunately. I have other stuff on my plate.

I'd LOVE to meet up with you at Acen. I'm a con-virgin and Mimette isn't letting that last too long ^.^;

LOL I odn't even remember what mine looks like...XDD;

yaaaay~

back on topic a little bit, that is so cool that you are working on manga super sailor moon!! good luck on that! I can tell you on LJ what my costume is...I just don't want to talk about it here as it is a special costume (at least to me) and not many people do it, so I want to make it before I announce it so every other SM cosplayer wont make it at the same time as me....I guess that sounds a bit selfish after writing that...hm.....
