Swimsuit: Eternal Sailor Moon by Malindachan Swimsuit: Eternal Sailor Moon by Malindachan
This was a quick thing I did for Colossalcon! One of my friends had drawn some Sailor Moon swimsuit designs, and we had plans to do a big group. Not everyone was able to complete theirs due to a lot of last minute things coming up, but maybe some day we'll have another opportunity to do it again. :)
I totally forgot to paint the moon on my forehead and I apologize! XD I was in a huge rush that morning. I also had some pink water wings as a substitute for the sleeves, though the staff at the Kalahari resort made me take them off. :< (My guess is that they wanted resort guests to buy theirs).
I basically just modified an ice skating pattern for this and used different colors of lycra! My wig is a Chibi and a long ponytail clip from Arda. I got lots of questions about my bangs; I just teased them a bit by backcombing and then used a roll brush with hairspray and a hair dryer to curl them. :3
Most of the accessories are just craft foam, resin-cast gems, beads, bias tape, worbla, and similarly found items I had on hand. The stripes near the ruffles and along the top were fabric painted on.

Much thanks to Sweet Sensation photography for taking this photo! Her DA page is :iconenchantedcupcake:

lammme about not being able to wear the water wings but -shrugs- I do love your wig for her~ Who made the designs if I may ask? They all look super cute from what I've seen of yours, Liz and Amanda's.

It was one of my friends. I don't remember if she has a DA account, but she has the artwork on her personal facebook.

Nice design, it looks really neat. Sailor senshi wear leotard-like outfits anyway, so the swimsuit design fits really well.

What a neat design! Was it something that you could actually swim in? I'm just curious because it sounds like craft foam wouldn't hold up too well.

It actually did pretty good in the water; I didn't use glue anywhere but they are held on with stitching (which could tear through the foam if too much stress was put on it). If I had more time I would have covered them in lycra and sewn them on for more security.

Oh my god this cosplay is amazingly adorable though I have to ask, how did you do the wig's pigtails? they look really well done.

Do you mean the curled ends? I first heated them up with a straightening iron and then wrapped it around my fingers and hairsprayed it, holding it in place as it cooled down.

Actually I meant the tops where her barrette-thingies(I think that's what they're called anyways) are.
