Variant: Casual Outfit

I love so many of Usagi's casual looks; they are fun & usually fairly "simple" and comfortable cosplays to pull off. Less than a week before I left for Katsucon 2012, I stumbled upon the perfect colored pink hoodie and I was pretty much obligated to piece this cosplay together while I was finishing up work on all my other cosplays.

Basic Info

  • Completed: February 2012
  • Debut: Katsucon 2012
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time Spent: 5 hours (approx.)

Clothing

  • ♥~Pink Hoodie~♥
  • I found & bought the perfect pink hoodie at the mall and altered it to fit me properly, since it was super over-sized in the torso (think 80's crop-top style). I then switched out the draw-string tie for a white one and added the plastic sliders.

  • ♥~Black Jumper~♥
  • I found a fantastic second-hand black jumper for super cheap. I had to take up the hem to the right length since it was too long; as well as having to take in the sides in order for it to fit me better.

Accessories

  • ♥~Earrings~♥
  • They are genuine simple pearl earrings with sterling silver posts that I purchased specifically for my Usagi cosplays. I love how they look! I found them at a local shop and they were actually affordable which is what surprised me the most.

  • ♥~Tights~♥
  • I totally lucked out finding the pink tights at a local store. They're a nice knitted pair so nice and just a little warm, great for chilly weather.

  • ♥~Shoes~♥
  • I already owned the Mary-Jane style shoes.

Props

  • ♥~Luna~♥
  • I sometimes will carry around the plush Luna I altered for my ep6 Usagi.

    She was made from a pre-existing inexpensive plush I found Online. I took apart the plush, added a pose-able skeleton to it, then re-stuffed & reassembled it, painted the pinks of the ears, and attached a crescent moon I sculpted, which is removable.

Hair

  • ♥~Hair~♥
  • I style my real hair to achieve the look of Sailor Moon's hair

  • Styling Time: 10-30 minutes (approx.) each time
