Eternal Sailor Chibi Moon - Sailor Moon Sailor Stars
Costume Made By & Borrowed from : Amber (Ammie)
Timeline of Construction: August 2010
I was invited to be a part of an Eternal Sailor Moon group by Ammie early in the year. She had hoped to gather a full group of Inner and Outer Scouts and she wanted me to be Eternal Sailor Saturn and borrow a costume that she had made. After borrowing her gorgeous Sailor Saturn costume for a group at AN, I was eager to wear the Eternal version of the scout for Fan Expo. The group ended up diminishing for Fan Expo and in the end, Ammie asked if I would be Eternal Sailor Chibi Moon for a smaller Inner Scout group (since my short height worked out well for the character). I absolutely love pink so I was happy to oblige.
It was a lot of fun being part of the group at Fan Expo 2010 and being in this group gave me a reason not to wait in the massive line to get into the con on Saturday afternoon as we were off finding neat photo locations to take some group shots instead. All of the costumes for our group were made by Ammie. She's absolutely amazing! At his point she can make a fuku in a day and considering how detailed the fukus are for the Eternal Sailors especially, that's an amazing accomplishment. I know my sewing skills are definitely nowhere near her level.
I especially love Ammie's colour choices when matching the pinks for this costume. Pink can be a very overwhelming colour, but all the pinks blended together really nicely. The job that she did on the wig was outstanding! The pigtails and odangos were really nicely shaped.
My big shortfall in wearing this costume is that my limbs are so short that the gloves liked to slip down on me.
I tried to do a bit of research before the con regarding Chibiusaís character so I could imitate some of her poses, but I wasnít able to recreate them that well. Thankfully Ammie (who was our stunning Eternal Sailor Moon) helped me out a lot with posing and we did some duo photos that turned out really nicely! I couldnít ask for a better mommy Usagi. While we wore these costumes, I often got to hold a stuffed Luna that Ammie made for photos. This was a great experience. The group members were Ammie (Amber) as Moon, Jukebox (Jen) as Mars, Jo as Jupiter, Sara as Mercury and another Jen was Venus. We were glad that we were able to do photoshoots with three great photographers.
Iím really looking forward to the full group that will happen in 2011. I'm commissioning my fuku from Ammie so I'm sure it will look amazing!
I included a couple of photos in this gallery that were taken of me posing with an awesome DeLorean and a Marty Cosplayer from Back to the Future. I spotted the Marty Cosplayer in the Intercontinental hotel and I flipped out when he told me the DeLorean was parked outside. I'm a huge Back to the Future fan. It's my favourite sci-fi film franchise so it was a blast checking out the car (which was tricked out to look exactly like the car from the second movie). It was one of the major highlights of the con for me.
