Character Name: Black Lady
Sailor Moon was the first anime that I ever saw as a child and will forever hold a special place in my heart. I'd been debating doing something from Sailor Moon for the past few years, and Black Lady was always one of the characters that kept coming up as a possibility, so I'm very happy I finally got off my ass and made this.
Top: The top was made out of voile. It was my first time really working with sheer fabric,
so I experimented a bit with french seaming (which I am very happy to have finally learned how to do).
The black parts of the top were made out of scraps of black cotton sateen I had lying around, and the gems
were all hand sewn onto the fabric.
I had purchased a Black Lady wig which I then proceeded to take apart and remake. The placement of the pigtails were moved higher up on the wig and then stubbed. The wefts on the original odangos were harvested and then glued onto the foam bases that I sculpted/carved to get a better shape. The bangs were trimmed and styled so they got a more "anime" look to them. Finally, the side ear parts and the pigtails themselves were curled.
Luna P was made out of a bouncy ball I bought at the dollar store, covered in papier macher and gesso, and then painted.
