2-hour Sailor Moon costume

My friend had a ‘heroes and villains’ themed 30th party. I’d had an extremely busy week and not had time to either buy or make a costume until a few hours before the party. At 4pm on a Saturday afternoon I wasn’t going to have time to go and buy a costume, and why would a sewist buy rather than make a costume? After doing some googling for easy ideas, I thought Sailor Moon would be a good choice: I have the long blonde hair, and her dress is fairly simple but identifiable. I looked through the scraps we had and found some thin white cotton, heavy blue jersey, and red jersey – the exact fabrics I needed! By the time I started cutting the fabric out it was 5pm (the party started at 7!), so it was a bit of a rushed job, done with no pattern. But I think it turned out pretty well.

    Thought you were into anime and cosplay! Splendid effort under deadline and when the live action movie comes out (I understand there’s one in Japan), you can have reason to don your costume again for the viewing!

    Toronto, Ontario, Canada had a recent Fan Expo at the end of August. Anime fans/comic fans/sci-fi/horror fans get together to talk/share/show off their costumes and have fun.

    Burda Style has some interesting Carnival costume ideas about 2-3months before Easter so you can have more fun making costumes.
