Progress Today! Ft. my messy sewing room floor
1. Skirt for Casual opening sequence Usagi is like 3/4 done, aaaah the beautiful simplicity of a circle skirt. Going to do the overall portion next, and get it all checked off my list.
2. EXPANDING FOAMS for the Serenity armband/sleeve/whatevers. I am cautiously optimistic. This is the first time I’ve worked with expanding foam, and it’s definitely really fun to work with, if nothing else! I’m looking forward to using it a lot more.
These circles are going to be the death of me.
Two days later, they kind of exist and kind of work! KIND OF.
And, save for sealing the bat, Punk Saturn is done! (SCREECHING INTENSIFIES). I’m in love with the details - the saturn on my shirt glows in the dark! my boots are lace up, purple/gray plaid, and my bat says “SILENCE!”.
We’ll have a mostly-complete group at Otakon (with some classic season villains!) on Friday night, and we’re in the market for a photographer!

Justin said I was “Jennifer Lawrencing” the pictures but I don’t even care I HAVE A DRESS. There isn’t even a zipper on it in these pictures and the bow is really loosely pinned on but the dress is now a thing.
I’m working on the gold trim for the bodice now, and tomorrow is wig day.
I usually don’t put up reference posts, but when the full Moon Pride music video came out and was absolutely soaking in reference for Serenity (and some Endymion! WOO!), I went on a screencap binge. A lot of things about her costume, while following the general patterns of other incarnations, are departures and new directions and it bears noting for anyone else who’s going to make a Crystal Serenity dress in the near—or distant—future.
The biggest differences are her bow, bodice, and skirts, but I’ve made notes on each picture with other things that are new/different! Hopefully this helps at least one other cosplayer or fandom artist out there :3
Made a forehead moon for transformationsequence's Princess Serenity costume. titanforest suggested the best way to display it for the internet. I feel like we need to do a full gender swapped Sailor Moon costume just to justify Luna as a dog.
He’s the dog of the Moon!

Bow! THE BOW! ALL HAIL THE BOW! Layered peach and antique white organza, two tails to each side, and it goes from my waist to the ground, almost. I feel like I am officially winning.
Preparing for our Friday punky Sailor Moon group at Otakon! Step one, wig cutting. Step two, shirt!
With glow in the dark symbol, I am so excited, Otakon is steadily becoming Moonkon for me and I am so okay with this.
Slightly shifty picture, but bow creation for Serenity has begun! I’m making layers to the bows in peach and antique white organzas (this is the peach) and will layer them for some warmth to the white bows and to contrast them with the white gown.
Also, woaaaaah, I have 200 followers, \o/. I’m planning to do a little something to celebrate! Look for it soon!
