Picked up (finally?) a replica of Cosima’s laptop skin, for the sole purpose of hanging out at restaurants/lobbies/bar areas in hotel cons in costume and on computer. (Also, wore Cosima outfits to work two days in a row! Apparently everyone at work really digs the Zara leopard print dress! #victory)

The moonlight carries the message of love.
This was an opportunity we couldn’t pass up - even though we’d formally finished our shoot with Colleen, we noticed the full moon rising above the Inner Harbor as we were trekking our slow way back to our hotels, and all went “…. THIS HAS TO HAPPEN.”
So we climbed up on a staircase and did this in front of several bemused tourists.

SHE IS WEARING THE ENGAGEMENT RING
IM SORRY BUT THAT FACT MAKES ME SO HAPPY

A++ for noticing the ring! 

(I may be cheating slightly as it’s my real engagement ring but it’s also just about the best time to use it in cosplay.)

Wow, hi, new followers! I’ve gone a little bit quiet, as I’ve been recovering from Dragoncon, cleaning my house not so effectively augh, and planning costumes for my next big con, NYCC! I just ordered a cowboy hat \o/ (I think I’ll be at Retrocon in PA at the end of September, as well, but that schedule is still kind of up in the air.)

Look for more photosets and some works-in-progress pictures starting to roll in as I get churning on costumes again!

sailorcorgimoon asked

I've been wanting to do a crystal opening Usagi too. Did you buy any of the pieces? Any tips on constructing? patterns?

I bought the shirt, because I’d noticed stripes and crop tops were in fashion this summer and banked on being able to find one - which I eventually did at a local thrift store. It’s a Charlotte Russe top (similar to this if not the exact same), but it doesn’t seem to be available on their website.

I made the dress, though! It’s a half circle skirt — which I made using measurements tweaked from here, because circle skirt calculators are awesome! — I attached a simple interfaced waistband, with a higher interfaced front “bib” with rounded corners, and added straps which cross in the back. (They’re literally just long rectangles, sewn and then turned inside out. Simple is sometimes best!) I didn’t use a pattern beyond the circle skirt calculator, but I’d also made a ton of circle skirts this summer for Serenity.

I think I hemmed it slightly too short, but then again, it’s Sailor Moon, sooooo. I also used a really, really comfy soft and t-shirty cotton jersey, so I didn’t have to line it, either! 

Good luck with your Usagi! It’s SUCH a comfy costume :D

(Oh, and, as for the umbrella, I used half fabric medium and half white paint, and did several layers with the bunnies, and then heat sealed the paint VEEEERY gently with my iron.)

doctorshenanigans and I were photographed by an Atlanta Street Fashion blog on our way to get our Dragoncon badges. I guess it’s BBC Street Chic?

This is the part of the Moon Pride opening you don’t see. The two seconds of “WOOOO” followed by screaming, dodging, and instant regret at the terrible decision of tossing umbrellas everywhere.
