If you are going to go all out, STARISH looks best. Personally, I hate normal looking cosplay..... it's bland to me. I like outfits that stand out over the rest, and his looks best for that.
Also, who cares about looks. Key is to have fun, and make the look work second. Get the costume, then built around it to make yourself look more like the character. That's it. If you don't look 100% like them, or even 3%, have fun!
Cosplay 1: Sailor Venus (Commissioner failed to make 4 month deadline)
Update: August 10th.... still nothing.
Reality: Recycled or no cosplay at all. Got to love commissioning! Thanks everyone!! Serious thanks to Dulcinea, who actually made the deadline for the accessories far in advance and of outstanding quality. Sucks they won't be used.
