This is another costume post, it seems I did a lot of cosplay in the last couple of months...
Anywho, I made this Michiru costume last summer in preparation for going to the Hyper Japan Christmas Market, but in the end I wasn't able to go :( But I couldn't let the costume go to waste!!
I went to a park near my flat and I thought it would be a lovely place to do some moody Michiru awaiting the apocalypse type shots.
I've spoken so many times about how Michiru/Sailor Neptune is my favourite character in Sailor Moon and she is someone who helped my figure out the kind of person I wanted to be during my messy teenage years.
She is also beautiful and elegant and has a classically feminine style that often has a bit of a vintage flair. However when Usagi and co. first meet her in the show she is at school and she often wears the amazing uniform of the Infinity School.
It is a very typical shape of a Japanese school uniform, if the colours are a bit out there, and it was a lot of fun to replicate this outfit.
The mirror was the same on I used for my Sailor Neptune costume back at London Comic Con. You can find details on that here.
