Super Sailor Uranus - Sailor Moon
The sword is made from pink installation foam that I carved, cut and sanded into shape. The 3D details are made from model magic, and carefully hot glued onto the pink foam. This technique causes a lot of melting and requires a lot of cleaning up after doing it, but I am overall quite happy with how the details look. The sword is very light weight, to the point many were very surprised when they picked it up. The gems were hot glued into place.
I made this costume during May of 2017, intended for a group with Symphony and Silk, Bandit Spurs and Mae-Gwyn.
I used McCall's M7455 pattern by Yaya Han and altered it in a few places. I took the zipper out of the pattern completely and made it so the costume slips over my head and opens at the bottom of the body suit. The crotch opens and closes with found snaps.
I used my serger on most seam to both finish the edges and allow the stretch to still work without pulling stitches out at the same time.
The McCall's patterns did not include pattern pieces for the sleeve rolls, hip rolls or any of the parts of the gloves. I had to manually draft these patterns on my own based on the measurements of the McCall's pattern. The rolls are all stuffed with quilt batting for their 3D effect.
The skirt is pleated and has top stitching on the top of each pleat to help keep the pleats in place. The hem has horse hair braid in it which helps it flare out and sit nicely.
The front bow has velcro sewn onto the back of it, and the back bow is sewn right onto the hip rolls on the body suit.
The heart brooch is a Christmas ornament to start off, and I sawed off the top, filled it and spray painted it. The boots were from Ardenes and also spray painted with the same type of paint.
The base wig was a Lulu in pale blonde from Arda Wigs Canada, and I layered it, cut it far shorter and styled the bangs to be poofier than their original style.
The tiara is made from three pieces of craft foam hot glued together, painted and a gem is hot glued on the front. It attaches to my fore head by being pinned into my wig cap and my wig sits on top of it which helps hold it place.
