Sailor Moon S: Sailor Chibi Moon

Tuesday, November 10th, 2009

sailor moon s cosplay - sailor chibi moonThe outgoing daughter of Sailor Moon and Tuxedo Mask, Sailor Chibi Moon dreams of becoming a beautiful lady one day. She is a perfectionist who prefers to do things alone so she can have her way. As the series progresses, she learns to open herself more, learning what true maturity really is.

I didn’t think anyone could get her hair to look quite that right. But I think I like her red eyes more than anything! Very convincing cosplay, and it even has Konata’s stamp of approval! Great work!

Sailor Stars: Princess Kakyuu

Wednesday, October 28th, 2009

sailor stars cosplay - princess kakyuuThe princess of Kinmoku who escaped to earth when Sailor Galaxia attacked, Princess Kakyuu is said to smell of sweet osmanthus, which is the recurring motif of her design. There are different versions with regards to her storyline in the anime and manga, but she is similar to Sailor Moon as she also has her own senshi, the Sailor Starlights.

The cosplayer looks like a doll in this photo. I’m guessing proper make-up and lighting gave that effect. Beautiful work!

Sailor Stars: Sailor Cosmos

Sunday, September 13th, 2009

sailor stars cosplay - sailor cosmosA character that only appeared in the manga, Sailor Cosmos is said to be the ultimate form of Sailor Moon. She comes from the future as an infant named “Chibi-Chibi” to encourage Usagi to defeat Chaos in the final battle. She initially wanted to destroy the Galaxy Cauldron altogether, but Sailor Moon protests when she realized no stars will be born if the Cauldron is destroyed. Sailor Moon’s sacrifice reminded her of the strength and courage she needed, returning to the future with renewed hope.

Beautiful cosplay! I always thought she was far more beautiful than Sailor Moon. Then again, she and Sailor Moon may be one and the same. What do you guys think?

Sailor Moon Musicals: Sailor Uranus, Sailor Pluto, and Sailor Neptune

Tuesday, August 25th, 2009

sailor moon musical cosplay - sailor uranus, sailor pluto, and sailor neptune

Also known as the “Outer Senshi”, Sailor Uranus, Sailor Pluto, and Sailor Neptune form a secondary group, along with Sailor Saturn. Previously, all of them preferred to work alone, but Sailor Uranus was able to trust Sailor Neptune and Sailor Pluto after fighting along side with them.

Sailor Pluto is known as the Guardian of Time, while Sailor Neptune is the Soldier of Ocean, and Sailor Uranus is the Soldier of the Sky.

I’m not even sure if they are cosplayers or the official cast of the musical, but they are very pretty. Thanks to Soyoungim for the photo!

Sailor Moon: Princess Serenity 02

Wednesday, March 25th, 2009

sailor moon cosplay - princess serenity 02 My apologies for the lack of updates lately. It seems that there have been some hot-linking of images in Cosplay Holic, and I had to change image servers. I’m still in the process of migrating images so it will take up a lot of time.

However, I’ve also been able to find some beautiful cosplays. This one of Princess Serenity, for example. Her  dress is really well made and the materials used are just perfect for the Moon Princess.

Although I must admit, it does lack the sleeve, but nevertheless, still a fitting rival for the previous cosplayer I’ve posted. Excellent work!

Sailor Moon S: Sailor Saturn 02

sailor moon s cosplay - sailor saturn 02

After being reborn thanks to the power of Sailor Moon, Sailor Saturn (aka Tomoe Hotaru) becomes adopted and cared for by Teno Haruka and Kaioh Michiru as well as Meioh Setsuna. As a toddler, Hotaru had a habit of calling Sailor Uranus, "Hakura-papa" even though she is actually female. Similarly, Hotaru called her other two guardians as "Michiru-mama" and "Setsuna-mama".

I love this image of Malro cosplaying Sailor Saturn! This was sent in by a frequent reader, Syaoyue via email. Thanks for the contribution!

Sailor Moon: Kino Makoto

Wednesday, November 5th, 2008

sailor moon cosplay - kino makoto / sailor jupiter The most independent among the Sailor Senshi, Makoto is among the tallest girls in the group, an unusual trait to which she is often teased about. In the beginning of the series, she transfers to Azabu Juban Junior High, Usagi’s school, and she is allowed by the school administration to wear her previous school’s uniform since they couldn’t provide her with a uniform her size.

Despite being tomboyish and physically strong, Makoto is actually very gentle and loves to cook and do gardening. One of her signature looks is her rose earrings, which she retains even after transforming into Sailor Jupiter.

A cute and simple cosplay. I really like Makoto’s uniform as compared to the other characters. She does Makoto justice, good job!
