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 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 S: Sailor Neptune 02

sailor moon s cosplay - sailor neptuneThe “Miss Congeniality” of the Sailor Senshi, Kaioh Michiru, whom is commonly referred as Sailor Neptune is a polite, calm, and sophisticated person who is very intelligent and gifted in art and music. She is often seen along side Teno Haruka (Sailor Uranus) to which several controversies have sprung from.

It’s been a while since I’ve seen pretty Senshi cosplayers. I’ve only got to see a couple of episodes of Sailormoon S, but I heard it was the best of the series. Anyway, great work on this! I really like her wig and eyes. It’s quite perfect, don’t you think?

Sailor Moon S: Sailor Saturn

sailor moon cosplay - sailor saturn

One of the most powerful Sailor Senshi in the Sailor Moon universe, Sailor Saturn, or Tomoe Hotaru yields the Silence Glaive, a weapon that can destroy the universe.

In the manga, Hotaru is a very mysterious character because she is part cyborg. This was her father’s attempt to save her from the lab accident that killed her mother. In the anime, however, she is not cybernetic, but she is still unpopular among her classmates due to her seizures.

It’s perhaps one of the most difficult tasks to cosplay one of the Sailor Senshi. Their uniforms are quite revealing (to the delight of fanboys everywhere). This cosplayer really got Sailor Saturn’s image perfectly! Great job!

Sailor Moon S: Sailor Neptune and Sailor Uranus

sailor moon cosplay - sailor neptune and sailor uranus

You don’t need expensive wigs to cosplay like a pro! This is a lovely picture of Neptune and Uranus (their human names escape me).

There have been a lot of controversy about these two. USA nearly banned Sailor Moon because these two were in a lesbian relationship. They changed the script (with the original author’s consent) so that they are cousins instead.

But, I think they are in such a situation that… Well, Sailor Uranus seemed to be a guy when he was still in Moon Kingdom (ruled by Sailor Moon’s mother). Proof of this is that there are short scenes showing Neptune and Uranus together, and Uranus was wearing a Prince’s clothing and he was obviously male. I believe Uranus and Neptune were engaged, but they never got to marry because of the war. Their rebirth resulted in a dilemma that Uranus was now a girl.

Kinda sad, don’t you think?

But really, I don’t know what the concept behind the artist’s story telling is… I just really like Sailor Moon when I was really young…
