Sailor Moon: Art Nouveau Costume Designs by Hannah-Alexander Sailor Moon: Art Nouveau Costume Designs by Hannah-Alexander
Finally completed them *_* Venus > Mercury > Moon > Mars > Jupiter .... Who is your favourite? Mine would have to be between Venus and Mars :) 

You can purchase a postcard pack of them here: www.etsy.com/shop/neverbirddesigns

You are welcome to cosplay as the designs, you don't need to ask permission, though if you ever complete them I would love to see photos :)

-------------------------------

Construction Notes

Venus: I wanted to designs something strong, confident but playful for V. There's a massive amount of netting for her underskirt, though the rest of the dress is made of ombre dyed cotton. The bands are inspired by her chain attack and the embroidery reflect that too; all the beading is in the shape of links. I suggest attaching the giant bow separately and keeping its shape with wire. The sleeves are slit down the middle and loose hanging. Flowers are amaryllis and mean dramatic.

Mercury: Slightly trickier to design, I wanted it to be graceful but classy and just a little bit girly. The skirt is layers and layers of asymmetrically cut chiffon, trimmed with the same fabric as the bodice, whichever you want that to be. You could go for silk dupioni to mimic a watery look, or just go for cotton and dip dye it yourself. Flowers are iris and mean wisdom.

Moon: Usagi needed to stand out from the others, hence why she's the only with a long dress. It's got quite an excessive train that's dip dyed gold and heavily embroidered. The details on the bodice are actually all white and gold, I'd focus more of texture than colour for this piece. You could use skin toned dance material for the sleeves, then go to town with the rhinestone bling. She also the only one who has a metal headpiece rather than a flowery one.

Mars: I was inspired by her temple outfit for this; I wanted it to be more Japanese inspired. In a perfect world the detail around her obi-thing would be metalwork, but leatherette or reinforced cotton would be fine too. The sleeves are slit down the middle and secured at wrist and shoulder. The under dress is cotton, cut and secured into layers. Flowers are roses and mean passion.

Jupiter: Needed to be fun and feisty and just a little bit boyish. The strips of ribbons attach to a collar and should hand loose around her shoulders. She wear an embroidered body suit underneath. If you want it to be super fitted you could for dancewear material again. Her top is embroidered lace. You can extend the body suit if you're self conscious! Flowers are ranunculus and mean radiant.

I'm generally not really thrilled with sailor moon redesigns but these are fantaaaaaaaastic. Actually artistic and well worked out rather than theme pandering. I LOVE THEM. Llama Emoji-02 (Blush) [V1]  I know you said you wont do more, but I will always be dreaming for the outers *outer fan/cosplayer***

Keep up the good work though! I love this style so much <33
