Yaten Kou

COSTUME: Yaten Kou

SOURCE: Sera Myu (Sailor Moon Musical)

WORN AT: London MCM Expo May 2009

COSPLAYER: Lauren

COSTUME INSPIRATION

The costume was based on the costume wore by Okuyama Momoko in the first stage of the Sailor Moon Musicals. It is the Three Lights seifuku which they rehearse in. It is also the costume you mainly see the Three Lights in during the musicals. We decided on the seifukus as they were easier to make and were less revealing then the Starlight fukus.

CONSTRUCTION NOTES

The main problem we had, was Lauren living in a different country to me and the fact that she is chibi-sized compared to me. I had to adjust the patterns to fit her. We have matching shoes, obviously in the appropriate shoe size to fit us, and the rings on the zips are actually scaled to our size, the rings on her costume are smaller than the ones on mine.This costume was so much fun to wear and perform in.
