♪ She is the one named Sailor Moon ♪
This year I had a colleague at work ask if I was able to make her a Sailor Moon costume for Halloween/C4 (Winnipeg’s comic convention). I admit I wasn’t sure how but she had found a tutorial that I thought seemed relatively easy so I agreed.
I wasn’t going to post until I had completed the skirt but I’m impatient and felt like posting the top and brooch.
I’m not 100% satisfied with how I did, but we’re our own worst critics. Though I can say I’m thankful for purchasing a dress form, an early Christmas gift from my parents. (Thanks Mum and Dad).
Here’s the link for the costume.
The brooch I made out of a thick piece of cardboard with felt glued to it and fabric glue for the gems. I hot glue a hair clip the back and clipped it to the bow so it’s removable for washing.
If I had known that the black pen I used oh-so-lightly was going to stain like it did when it dried I wouldn’t have used it. I have plenty more fabric so if my colleague hates it I’ll redo it.
I’ll post pictures of the skirt and choker and if she wants me to modify the gloves she has I’ll post those as well.
Until then… Happy Sewing
