How to Cosplay as Sailor Moon

Deluxe Sailor Moon Mars Costume Cosplay Uniform Fancy party Dress & Gloves
Sailor Moon is awesome. Despite...'odd' dubbing, it remains one of the most iconic anime to be imported to the west, and girls and boys alike adored it. This post is going to be looking at how best to dress up as the main character, Sailor Moon, a.k.a Serena, or Usagi in Japan. First of all, you'll need the iconic sailor senshi costume. The one above it just perfect, and comes with the dress, headband and gloves. It doesn't come with the boots, but luckily Funtasma do a very similar pair of boots that you can use to finish off the look. This headband is also a popular purchase among cosplayers who use this outfit.

Next up, you'll want to style your hair like Serena's. The easiest way to do it is with a beautiful blond wig that is pre-styled, like the one on the right. If you want a less natural and more cartoony look to fit the anime style better, brighter yellow wigs are also available to check out.

In my Princess Serenity cosplay post I mentioned that it is possible to style your own hair like Sailor Moon's if you are lucky enough to have long, thick blond hair, so I'll post the great video tutorial of how to do it here again. Remember that this look does require hair extensions in order to get the proper thickness, and you can find some good ones here

Finally, finish the look off with some props and accessories. Here's some of my suggestions:
