Clothing

  • ♥~Pink Top~♥
  • I made the top from a high quality Lycra-spandex that I found on a fabric shopping trip to NYC. I made it from an altered version of my pattern for eternal senshi leotards, it's fully lined even the sleeves. For the skirt part I lengthened the pattern for the senshi circle skirt I used, it is also fully lined with a lighter spandex that I lucked into locally (since I was just a little short on the original fabric). I love how full and flouncy it came out. The front bow is made from the same spandex I used for the rest of the top. The lacing down the back is the ¼" matching Swiss double-faced satin ribbon that actually laces and is functional. The ribbon runs through some cute mini D-rings that are hand-stitched to the top to make the proper look and number of points for the ribbon.

  • ♥~Black Shorts~♥
  • They're just basic black cotton-Lycra shorts, definitely the easiest bit.

Accessories

  • ♥~Hair Bows~♥
  • I made the cute pink matching bows made from 2" Swiss Double-face satin ribbon. I lucked into finding a perfect match to the spandex I used for the top. The ribbon is supper buttery and silky, I just love how it feels! ♥

    The pre-tied bows are mounted on bobby-pins so they can be attached to my hair.


  • ♥~Earrings~♥
  • I finally invested in some genuine simple pearl earrings with sterling silver posts 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.

  • ♥~Ring~♥
  • This cosplay also gives me another excuse to wear my Usagi engagement ring if I feel so inclined; since she dose wear this outfit in StarS (you know, the one where Seiya comes over to Usagi's house and they have cake, and Chibi-Chibi dose "unmentionable things" and Seiya ends up in the shower)

  • ♥~Shoes~♥
  • After keeping an eye out for months I finally found them at a local shop on clearance. They're ballet flat style with a touch of a heel, tan soles, and they have a cute little strap with a bow. I was so happy to find such a perfect matching pair for so little money, and they're even real leather to boot!

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
