I've always been OBSESSED with Sailor Moon ever since I was a little girl. I thought my look would suit an anime character quite well, but even if I would have purchased a blonde wig I don't think I would have pulled it off very well... (let's be honest!) So I decided I would create my own Sailor and make all of Serena's red parts black so I could keep my natural hair color. :-)
*Everything you see here is hand-made except for the boots, socks, and skirt.
The chest ornament is actually my compact make-up case painted and pasted with pearl beads, and my hair accessories are sequin decorated buttons with bobby pins shoved through. The bows are just large pieces of felt, the shirt is a tank top with sewn on sleeve caps, and the cape part of her uniform was created completely from scratch. Gloves were made out of old T-Shirts and some more felt fabric.
I had SO much fun putting this all together. Makes me want to make costumes like this all year round! ;D
*& I'm used to keeping things all natural in Photoshop so trust me, I did the best I could!!
****ALSO! I made a Behind the Scenes video for this look as well. Check it out!!!****
