Happy moony monday!!! Here's a photo of my Super Sailor Neptune costume from Katsucon 2013! I'm super proud of how it turned out, it was a huge labor of love and anxiety and i can't wait to make more Sailor Moon costumes for this upcoming katsucon!!

The shoes are painted with leather paint and sealed with acrylic gloss, and the ribbons are just tied around my ankles to keep them secure. The skirt is two circle skirts pleated but un-ironed down, finished with a pearl hem. The bows are all fake bows stuffed with a bit of batting, the fuku is interfaced and the bias tape is hand sewn on. The sleeve armor is made out of clear plastic folders from staples, the tiara are styrene and craft foam covered in gold lame with a opal gem I found in the bead district glued on, which stays on with little hair clips. The necklaces are ribbon with a gold star stud attached. The gloves and leotard are double knit white, and the leotard is doubled over on my chest to create the 'armor' look the sailor fuku's have. The rolls on my sleeve, gloves and hips are made with patience and batting. The skirt, fuku, glove rolls and bows are all made of matte satin.
