Artwork for Setsuna/Pluto Cosplay

This image of Setsuna/Pluto has been floating around my blogging site a lot and I wanted to know if anyone could confirm whether or not this is official work by Naoko Takeuchi or if it's from a really well done Dojinshi. The reason why I ask is because I'm really interested in cosplaying this dress, but if I use it in a contest I'd like to make sure I'm crediting the right artist. And while I'm on the subject, does anyone know of a good tutorial for the Garnet Rod?

If it's any help, I wrote out how I made my key for Pluto last summer.

Wow, your staff is beautifully done! Also, where did you get your wig?

Never seen it! Could be from Doujinishi... but it looks very similar to Naoko's stuff!

Play it safe? Say you found the image online, but the exact source (either doujinishi or from the manga) you are unsure of. But I'm leaning towards either a "preview" of their greecian days or from some other artists. Where did you find the image originally?

Its been circulating on Tumblr. The style really does look identical to Naoko's work, but I can't find an original source.

That wig came from cosplaydna2009's ebay store, right here: http://www.ebay.com/itm/ws/eBayISAPI...m=170618941935

It's funny that you brought up that art though because I stumbled upon it right after Anime Expo last year when I debuted my Super Pluto, and I had heard that Takeuchi had done art like that for all the outer scouts. My group wanted to find the rest so we could all be goddess, but unfortunately we haven't had any luck there.

I'd love for that to be true. I could make a group out of it. But I still can't even find the source of this one image. >.<

Also, thanks for the link. I've saved the vendor.

In my 10+ years of being a Sailor Moon fan, that image is totally new to me. However, if you really like the design, I'd say just go for it!

Same here, I haven't seen it till recently which is why I thought it was odd so I decided to ask. I finally found out that it originated from a doujinshi. I just haven't had the chance to check this thread since.

I'm waiting on photos of the final product, but here's a shot of the staff I made before painting. It's super easy to make if you can find the right supplies (Michael's and Home Depot) and is VERY lightweight. It lights up too.
