Sailor Mars from Sailor Moon Costume 100% made by me
Model: Me Photography: Keith Louie at Fanime 2011
Fourth on the more-photos-poll was Sailor Mars! Guess I'll do the requests next and maybe another of first place.. Happy October everyone! Definitely my favorite month, going to CA next week for some photoshoots, a couple days at DL for Mickey's Halloween party, a birthday party, and to see friends! Also can't wait for Halloween, my costume's a secret for now but I'm so excited!
THE COSTUME THE WIG is made by myself. You might have recognized the curles, but it's an sbsolutely different wig: I made it from two wigs. It took a day to finish for a cosplay convention. I like the color extremely! THE DRESS is made by myself. I use my own patterns, the dress is made of wool, embroidery is handmade. I made the dress specially for the video [link] I like the black dress more than her casual one, it's more beautiful and...impressive so to say. THE BELT is also made by me. I used man-made leather and colored it myself. It was a little tiresome but I went all the way through and enjoyed it to some extend. I totally like the result. THE BOW AND ARROWS are made by my friend Michiru and me. He helped me with the wooden bow and stitching the feathers. I colored the bow and every its detail.
The Quiver is made from leftover brown pleather. and I made it without any sort of pattern just references of other quivers to go on. It was a challenge to find a good screen-shot, but I finally found one in high resolution The belt was made of folded pleather with a belt buckle holding it on the back. Everything is glued together with Mighty Mendit. Its made to my size (I'm 5'3") its 17" long with my arrows being 25" (the taller you are the longer your quiver will have to be) The arrow's are make from white feathers I found at Michale's along with the dowels. I tea-dyed the feathers and then painted a few of them with acrylic paint.
