We made the piping out of a gold vinyl, and then while one was wearing their body suit, the other one put in a few stitches at a few points to hold it in the right place. It was tricky and there were many needle pricks involved...
Ah sorry I didn't reply to this til now. ; Actually it's just the "swimwear"/dance stretchy material. You can get it at most fabric stores. The piping was some sort of gold vinyl that I haven't seen for a number of years, but I'm sure it still exists somewhere. I wouldn't suggest turning it inside out though - it makes your fingers bleed after a few dozen hours of doing it. >< The vests we used crushed velvet for, which is an awful material to make cooperate most of the time, but worked really well for this. Good luck with the costuming!
Alan's is just one wig that I cut the bangs to stlye; Ann's is two of the same wig - one cut shorter for the fluffiness, and the other left long with the bangs trimmed so it fit under the other wig. For the colored pieces we hot-glued small chunks of the other wig (Ann's for Alan, Alan's for Ann) and sewed them into the bangs.
Good luck on your Ziocite costume!! He's one of my favourite characters. They bad guys in Sailor Moon need more cosplay love. ;_;
wow what cool idea for the wigs zoi is my faveorite charector i have to agree with u villians from SM need ALOT more cosplay love i know this may be a silly question but what does cosplay achaly mean ?
"cosplay" is short for "costume play" - in other words, dressing up in costumes. The Japanese have a great love of taking English words or phrases (and occasionally Japanese phrases, too) and shortening them. Have you ever heard of "purikura" (like photo booth pictures; really popular with high school girls in Japan)? It's short for "Print Club" (which was one of the original brands of the booths or something).
I'm babbling! Anyway. Hope that explains it. ^^ Let me know if you have any other questions!
it was a filler..but a interesting one at that and of my characters history..yes I made a SM chara....i love it that much...(maybe if you ask I might tell you about him I even considered Cosplaying him..idc if people dont know who he is..they'd know who he's based off of tho..x.x) Anywho good to see that people havent forgotten about the SMR filler ^__^
Wow, those are really beautiful. o _o;; Like... Really beautiful. It's amazing to think you made them from nothing, they look just like in the show. I always really loved Ail + An... So many Sailor Moon fans are all "OMG NO WAIZ MAKAIJU PLOTLINE SUX DDD< NOT IN MANGA NOT IN MANGA" and give no other reason for disliking them other than they were Filler-Villains made by Toei and weren't Naoko's creations. Regardless, they're still both good characters, right?
Man, your outfits are beatiful. D:< -Goes back to look at them.-
Love the wigs. Sexhair? ;D
If you wear these again (and you should!) maybe you could dye your face + hands green? =3 You'd scare everyone into thinking they'd get their energy zapped.
I'm aware this is a rather old photo, but age hasn't diminished its beauty. D< 'Cause it's beautiful.
Yeah, Ail and An are definitely some of my favourite villains next to Galaxia. I loved the idea....
Glad you like the costumes. ^^ We want to go back and fix a few things on them and wear them again, because we love them that much, too. We actually did have white makeup on, but by the time we took these pictures, the majority of it had worn off... We'd do better make up next time.
Thanks so much for the thoughtful comment! It's greatly appreciated!
id love to see what youre wearing tomorrow. if ur dressing up. or if ur wearing those again. wow i cant beleive u made those thats so awsome! i love the sailor moon series.(infact im kinda laughing at myself right now cause my monitor is plastered with sm stickers.......)
