Sailor Moon Costume

For Halloween this year, I was one of my favourite childhood characters… Sailor Moon! My Sailor Moon costume was actually a repeat outfit, from when I was a child! My mother sewed the costume for me from a McCall pattern (which I’m sure I still have…) and made it in the largest size. I added a pair of gorgeous red leather over the knee boots, white gloves and a toy Sailor Moon’s wand  to complete the look.

My boyfriend was tuxedo mask, because my costume wouldn’t be complete! For his Tuxedo Mask costume, Daniel wore a tuxedo from Topshop, a white shirt, a vampire cape (flipped inside out to hide the red collar), a top hat and a papier maché mask from the Dollar Store.

The costume was too short (I guess I FINALLY grew into it, mom!) so I layered a blue pleated skirt from Forever 21 underneath. The biggest element of this costume, and what really ties it together in the details was my DIY red choker. I took apart a moon necklace that I bought from Forever 21, and hot glued it onto a ribbon, fastened with velcro to make it stay in place all night.

Sailor Moon Hairstyle

As for my hair, everyone was asking me if it was real! To get a Sailor Moon hairstyle, I separated my hair in four high ponytails. I teased the front two ponys and created a bun, pinning as I went. I used some KMS California Hair Play texture spray to lock in the buns. I added a one clip extension under the bun, and fake bangs on top to tie in the look! The first time I tried this hairstyle, it took nearly an hour to get perfect, but on the second night I dressed up, it took a mere 10 minutes! Practice makes perfect so next time, I will rehearse my Halloween hair.

I hope you enjoyed my Sailor Moon costume! It was a dream come true, especially with Tuxedo Mask by my side. You can check out previous costumes, including our Moonrise Kingdom one, a Tangled Halloween, and my turn as Elsa the Snow Queen!

P.S. Big thanks to my friend Daisy for lending me her incredible red boots!
