Sailor Moon in Times Square by meteorie Sailor Moon in Times Square by meteorie
I think this was taken while I was posing for a different photographer in Times Square NYC. I thought it looked amazing! Photo credits: Eduardo Suarez. I was there to take part in this fantastic cosplay video and was so happy to be a part of it!

Walking around in cosplay in Times Square was surreal. Many, many people not only recognized my costume but talked about how much they loved the series, and were overjoyed to get a photo of/with me. I don't doubt that if Sailor Moon was re-licensed in the states, it would be more popular than ever before.. so many people still love and support this series. I knew Sailor Moon had serious staying power since I've been part of the online community for many many years, but seeing how regular people in Times Square, far from the convention area, responded so positively to my cosplay reaffirmed it more than ever ;_;

It was also a little embarrassing.. I accidentally stood on a Subway grate and pulled a Marilyn Monroe in front of a crowd >_> Oh well...

Vector art version by :iconbriannaangelakis: is here!

A major thank you to :iconenchantedcupcake: for suggesting this as a DD and :iconpullingcandy: for adding it! I feel honored. Thank you so much.

I have to say that that looks like one of the most authentic looking Sailor Moon cosplays I've seen. The odangos, the costume material, the pendant, all of it I could see it being what Sailor Moon would look like if she was real. Great work

Even more than the costumes used in PGSM. I think they were good, but seemed to be lacking in realism/ plausibility. I mean, they LOOKED like costumes in PGSM. This has a much more natural feel to it, and looks more wearable, I think.

I SO admire you for this! You look so amazing and your cosplay is fantastic! The picture is so cool, it's like a piece of the world of anime fans revealed to the rest of the world, and also the fantasy world colliding with somewhere that's so modern and as un-fantasy-like as it gets...kinda reminds me of the movie "Enchanted" but WAY more awesome :) Congratulations on the Daily Deviation. You totally deserve it! ^^

Well...they are redoing the series! I didn't know if you heard that or not, but they're actually redoing and redesigning it in Japan and the United States I believe they bought it.

This looks like a shot from a great short film or something.
Some guy or girl obsessed with Sailor Moon wishes she was real. One night by the light of the moon the cover of a Sailor Moon Manga comes to life. Sailor Moon wonders around NY while the main character tries to get her back in the book. IDK.
I like the premise.

Usually I'm really tough on cosplays because I know for a fact if different materials had been used it would have looked much better.
When it's a cosplay related to something I love this is even more true.
As such, I must say.... How amazing and fantastic this shot is.

Oh what materials would you have used?
I guess the skirt is not something I'm going to remake, though I've always thought about redoing the sleeves and bow in white chiffon. I really regret not at least making the skirt out of stretch sateen to avoid wrinkles.. or something else, since I read in Materials Collection (I think) that her skirt is supposed to be the same fabric as Princess Serenity's. Which makes me think it should be slightly shinier or at least more luxurious than just plain cotton... oh well. but I do plan on remake some parts of it at least, I definitely want to add that bust line thing.

CountessFoxington Featured By Owner Sep 11, 2012
I actually think the only part of this cosplay I would have changed up material wise is the gloves. But then I'm not a fan of gloves so that may just be that.
I think the cotton is actually a really good fit for this. The reason I get picky with fabrics is actually because too many people use materials that are too shiny that just winds up giving the whole thing a costumey look that looks well... Crappy. So if you do go for a different material on say the skirt... Be careful. There's a fine line between acceptable amounts of shininess and over-stepping it. Personally I feel that a really good cosplay - like yours - is so good because it's real. It's believeable. They could honestly BE that character. Except the powers of course. =3
