Sailor Star Healer
Sailor Moon Stars

Cosplayer: electricdino

Status: In Progress

Condition: Not Set

5th April 2011: Kitacon III So... Kitacon is now over and I wore Healer for Saturday and the Masquerade. I wasn't able to finish the costume completely, but then again... none of us did. XD

It was great fun to wear Healer even if I did feel REALLY exposed. I plan on completing this costume in the future, (and remaking some sections), so I'm keeping her as 'In Progress' for now.

28th March 2011: Fuku Top... Complete So... my fuku top is now complete. Well... the basics of it is, just need to add stars onto the back, which will likely be done at the con, XD That fuku top took me WAY longer than I thought it would... but then I did make mistakes with it that had to be fixed and being hit out ill for like 3 weeks really didn't help. It is done now though, ^_^

I know it's not perfect... it's far from perfect... seeing as when I cut the leather bits, I didn't get it shaped properly, so I had to reshape once on, and... yeah there is now folds on the front but to be honest... I don't care anymore.

I'm going to redo Healer in a year or two... when my confidence levels are back up and my skills are more improved. I've reached the stage with this version of just saying sod it, so... yeah, it will likely look a complete mess but I don't care anymore... >_<

Hopefully I'll tackle the sailor collar and the accessories tomorrow. *fingers crossed*

6th March 2011: I'm starting to hate this costume... >_< Today has been a bad day costume wise. I finished the green edging only to not be able to do it up. Meaning I had to unpick the back, stitch up the hem, extend one of the back panels more so I could sew on the press stud. It's done now but... argh. That's put me behind again now.

It's my own stupid fault... I didn't get a stretchy fabric, and I completely forgot about the back of the bra needing to stretch. *facepalm* It looks so messy now and I am so disappointed in myself. *sigh* I'll remake this costume once my skills are more up to par...

Due to my failure with the edging though I didn't get to make the leather bits for the fuku top. I did manage to whip up the pattern for them though so that's something. I'm still behind and with me going back to work tomorrow my time is going to become limited again but there's nothing I can do. And knowing me I'll probably have a fiddle around with the pattern again tomorrow to see if I can get it to sit better... urgh.

Lesson learned today... I fail, >_<

5th March 2011: Fuku Top... Green Edging... In Progress Today I did a good chunk of the green edging of the bra. I literally only have the back left to do. Then I can make the black leather cups and attach those... then the fuku top will be done! I'm hoping I will be able to complete it tomorrow... *fingers crossed*

The bra did have to be cut up a bit... I had to cut the back down so it was as thin as the straps etc, but luckily even having done that it still fits fairly well. I may have to use some tape just to be safe but you know... at least I have got the bra support. Even if it does mean the shape isn't accurate, ^^;

I also had to sew the straps onto the bra as well, since the bra was a strapless/multiway one... but that was fine. I managed to get it straight/lined up correctly at the back.

I have run out of the green thread I was using though so I'm gonna have to rummage for another tomorrow before I start on the last bits of edging. It won't be as close in colour to the material as the one I was using was, but it will do.

The chances of me finishing Healer in time is actually looking quite high... *fingers crossed* that I do actually finish her in time for Kita, XD

4th March 2011: Fuku Shorts - Complete I have finally finished these blasted shorts... took me long enough, XD The stomach crosses are now attached. I have sewn on press studs to keep the crosses in position and to attach them to the shorts at the front. It was the only way I could think of to make it work.

There is still some detailing left to do on them... the stars on the crossover points and the studs... but those will be done later.

Next Step... Fuku Top.

3rd March 2011: Stomach Crosses... Complete I have finally finished sewing the other stomach cross. Would have done it yesterday if I hadn't ended up going to the theatre to see Chess... ^^;

But it is done now, meaning my next step is to attach them to the shorts. Should be able to get that done tomorrow. Then after that... I can begin the fuku top. I'm really hoping I can get this costume done in time, *fingers crossed*

1st March 2011: Stomach Crosses... One is now sewn. Still got the other to do which I will hopefully start tomorrow. They are taking a lot longer than I thought they would, not including me being ill.

I gave myself a lot more work by choosing to use fabric instead of ribbons, >_<

20th February 2011: Shorts!!! My fuku shorts are now completely sewn... not finished yet though. Next I need to make the stomach cross and attach it to the shorts. After that's done I can start work on the fuku top. I'm so proud of the amount of work and progress I managed to make today... ^_^

18th February 2011: Template So... the template for the black leather parts of the short is now made. Now I have to cut out the actual fabric, pin it on to check that it's ok, and then get sewing...

These shorts are going to be tight... ^^;

17th February 2011: Gold Triangles Done The gold triangles on my fuku shorts are now sewn on. Typically the back ended up better than the front, oh well. I'll try them on again tomorrow before starting on the black leather.

Must remember to buy some poppers/press studs. I'm going to need them for the gold stomach cross and for the fuku top, so... kinda important, XD

13th February 2011: Fuku Shorts Progress So... I've got the gold sections pinned onto the base of my fuku shorts now. I did start to sew them on as well but my hands decided to complain... so, I've had to pause for now. Once the gold sections are sewn on I can tackle the black leather covering, and then the shorts will be done. After the shorts, I'll tackle the fuku top, then the Sailor Collar, then the gold stomach cross, then the boots, then the gloves. At least that's my plan... XD

26th January 2011: 2nd Base has arrived My fuku top base has now arrived. Yes, it is a strapless bra. Due to being blessed with a big chest I need to modify an actual bra, as I definitely need the support, XD Due to this my fuku top won't be completely accurate, and I will probably get called up on it but I'm going to do the best I can with my limitations.

Next step is to find a pair of shoes/boots to use and to order all my fabric.

24th January 2011: It starts... I am now properly working on this costume... or starting to get all the pieces in. Today I recieved the base for my fuku shorts. They are leather already but I'm still going to cover them so they are longer, and I can put the gold triangles in and attach the stomach cross. The base does fit me really well which makes me happy. I'm now waiting for the fuku top base to arrive, ^_^

@Rain, it's from the last season of Sailor Moon, but it was never aired outside Japan so it's no wonder you haven't heard of this character. :) It's really good, I recommend you watch it!

@Nami - We're not too sure what day yet as it all depends on other cosplay groups we are in and when those are going ahead. It will probably be on the day of the masquerade though, as we hope to enter them. The Black Moon brothers will be on the day of and for 'Kita's Got Talent', or that's our plan at the moment, ^_^
