Wow I have never been so upset making a costume in my life. This is one of those costumes that I know is well within my skill level, but emotionally very taxing on me???? I feel like no matter what my costume looks like I'm always going to be upset I didn't literally summon it with my planetary powers.
and can I just say Michiru and Haruka gave me the most unrealistic standards for a relationship EVER at a very young age, I'm basically still mad I wasn't a flawless world renown concert violinist with a hot live-in motorcyclist girlfriend at the age of 16????????? Who wouldn't want to be Michiru god damn. I've also been obsessed with deep sea creatures and the ocean ever since I was a little kid which is another reason Michiru is one of my fav moon ladies. And thank you so much lionel for coming on a cold ass beach adventure with me and making me this BEAUTIFUL FUCKING VIOLIN HOLY SHIT
The shoes are painted with leather paint and sealed with acrylic gloss, and the ribbons are just tied around my ankles to keep them secure. The skirt is two circle skirts pleated but un-ironed down, finished with a pearl hem. The bows are all fake bows stuffed with a bit of batting, the fuku is interfaced and the bias tape is hand sewn on. The sleeve armor is made out of clear plastic folders from staples, the tiara are styrene and craft foam covered in gold lame with a opal gem I found in the bead district glued on, which stays on with little hair clips. The necklaces are ribbon with a gold star stud attached. The gloves and leotard are double knit white, and the leotard is doubled over on my chest to create the 'armor' look the sailor fuku's have. The rolls on my sleeve, gloves and hips are made with patience and batting. The skirt, fuku, glove rolls and bows are all made of matte satin.
