Sailor Moon Revealed by straywind Sailor Moon Revealed by straywind
First photo of my surprise Sailor Scout costume from Otakuthon. It was Sailor Moon who was my absolute favourite Scout growing up and probably my favourite anything for a few years. XD Ammie suggested that I do a bow swap with my Sailor Mercury costume so she made me boot covers, glove tops, bows and a choker back when I got my Mercury costume from her. I didn't expect the combo to work as well as it did for Moon. I also didn't think Moon would suit me at all, but looking at pictures of myself as Moon I hardly recognize myself!

Wearing this was so much fun at Otakuthon and I loved that I got to Cosplay with my dear friend Sakura who was a super adorable Sailor Venus. :3 (More photos to come!)

I always remember going to the CNE in like 1996 and seeing the Sailor Moon stage show and being in total awe of the costumed performers (especially of Sailor Moon) so finally Cosplaying the title character nearly 15 years later and feeling like I pulled her off fairly well kinda blows my mind a bit. XD

The costume elements came from a lot of sources (I'm really just a model besides doing a bit of minor sewing and repair work here and there) so here are the credits:

Fuku by - Ammie

Wig sold to me by Rankin24 and was originally made by HezaV

Tiara - Catzia's Collectibles (borrowed from Pan)

Brooch by - Ashlee

Odango Shields by - Starlit Creations

Earrings by - Pan

Perfect wig and SM cosplay here! I see you got something from Catzia's- that's where my wife's Sailor Saturn boots came from, good place!

Catzia has a lot of great Sailor Moon accessories. (^^) I love their tiaras. I own several of them for different Sailor Scout costumes. (^_^)

If I need tiaras, or more boots, will definitely use them again!

Wow, you're such a wonderful Sailor Moon! :heart: I love how your cosplay is complete and everything looks so nice and neat~ The colors and material choices are good too, and that brooch is lovely! I've been looking for a good 1st season brooch that won't kill my wallet ^^; So far the ones I really like are a bit on the expensive side...I'm considering just making it myself, but sculpting isn't my forte >__< But anyway, great job! You're one of my favorite Sailor Moons now~ :la:

You're very kind! Thank you for the compliments! My friend Ammie deserves all the credit for the fuku since it was a commission. It was actually a Sailor Mercury fuku and I swapped the bows and boot covers. :3 The blue worked really nicely for Moon too.

I purchased my brooch on Etsy. The seller I bought mine from doesn't seem to have them for sale right now, but I would suggest having a look on that site. (^^) I really like that mine has a bit of an antique look to it.

Best wishes with your Sailor Moon costume! (^_^)

Thank you for the compliment. I can't take credit for the outfit, but I really loved wearing this. It's possibly the most fun that I've ever had in a costume. X3
