Ever since I was a little girl Sailor Moon has held a special place in my heart, so when I re-discovered the anime at 16 I was hooked! I read/watched/inhaled everything Sailor Moon that I could get my hand on, which wasn’t that much to begin with. After a year of rolling around in the glory that is Sailor Moon, I stumbled across the musical versions, and my life changed. I loved all incarnations of Sailor Moon, but the musicals are very, very dear to me. Sailor Uranus has always been an inspiration to me, she’s a strong and fantastic female protagonist, someone to be proud of emulating. This, coupled with my love for two of the Sailor Uranus actresses Takagi Nao & Sanae Kimura, meant that cosplaying Sailor Uranus has been one of my most fun and personally important to date!


I’d like to start out with saying that I had a lot of help with this costume, both from my mother when it came to the gravity-defying collar, and general construction tips from Katie at It wasn’t as difficult to construct as you might think though, each skirt is made up of two cotton circle skirts pleated to oblivion (again, get a good movie going!), the bodice is made from white jersey-cotton, and the bows from gold lamé. The golden trim is a special type of mylar, which was hand-sewn onto the costume. It is possible to machine-sew, I just preferred doing it by hand because it’s a bit neater. The brooch, earrings and necklace gem is made from metal and beads, and the tiara was purchased from Catzia.
