Hi everyone! Hi 
I recently posted some pics of my Princess Serenity photoshoot, I hope you liked them #7 Free Icon: Usagi Tsukino (Sailor Moon) I am really happy with how the cosplay turned out, especially because it has been a very low budget project. I often hear people complaining that cosplaying might be too expensive, which is often true, but you still can get a very cute and decent costume without spending loads of money on it MONEH to prove that, I decided to show you the making of Princess Serenity dress and accessories  Hamtaro Mouse Emoji-02 (Kawaii) [V1] 
Let's get started! :hypersprint: 

The dressAngeliccc 


First thing I did was open my closet to look for something that could be useful to make the Princess' dress. I found an old sleeveless top I bought at Hollister in Manhattan many years ago and an old white tutu interely made out of tulle (you can find greats tutorials on how to sew a tulle tutu on Youtube). The tutu wasn't long enough:panic: , so I decided to look for a long plain white skirt to make the dress longer. I luckly found it in an online thrift shop: the girl who was selling it decided to give it to me for free! Neko Emoji-28 (Yay sho happy) [V2]

The bodice decorations*Free Icon/Emote* Pusheen (So exciting!) 
From a previous project (Sailor Moon boots and collar#60 Free Icon: Usagi Tsukino (Sailor Moon) 50x50 ) I still had some glitter foam, from which I cut a series of connected circles. I first made a paper model to decide the size of the circles. I've sewn them on the bodice the day of the convention/photoshoot, because my bodice was enterely made of shirring #33 Free Icon: Usagi Tsukino (Sailor Moon) . If you are lucky enough to find a sleeveless bodice in your closet or in a thrift shop which is not made of shirring you can immediately sew the circles on it :La: in Love with :Dummy:

Princess Serenity has a line of golden pearls on her bodice. I found the pearls at the local marketBring forth thy happyface . I measured my waist with a white ribbon, which I had at home, and hot glued the pearls on it , always because I couldn't sew them on the shirring:angry: . (If you are going to hot glue the pearls please remember to wear a glow, since you can easily burn your fingertips!:fire: :fire: :fire: )

The sleevesFool around [Gravity Falls] 
The white things in the previous image are the curtain holders #19 Free Icon: Usagi Tsukino (Sailor Moon) 50x50  that I used to make the sleeves, together with the large elastic band. I found them at a Chinese shop in my cityChinese Lantern. I've measured my arm with the elastic band and then I've cut it and sewn it to make two armcuffs. I then hotglued the curtain holders on it (2 holders on each elastic band), of course I also removed the magnets from the curtain holders :lol: rvmp

The back bowcute pink bow 
Unluckly, I don't have WIP pictures of the back bow :cry:  I made it with some tulle I still had at home, it is very easy and you can find plenty of youtube tutorials on how to make it. Tulle is a very cheap fabric, you can find it at your local fabric store for just few dollars.Dollar 

The main dress is done! If your budget is very low, you can stop here! TotalDollar : 17,20$ 

Please, note that I use my real hair to cosplay! If your hair isn't blonde or long enough, you will have to add the price of the wig to the total! Sailor Moon Emoticon: Neo Queen Serenity 

Optional: the wingsCommission - Clefairykid emote 
In the manga and in some scenes of the anime, Princess Serenity has a wonderful pair of angel wing left large white wingsangel wing right . Since my budget was quite low, I decided to buy some pre-made wings and then make them larger by adding cardboard and feathers Flipped Feather Flipped Feather Flipped Feather .

Optional: the shoesCleaning 
You can't really see Princess Serenity's shoes. In the manga and in some of Naoko's illustrations, she's often barefoot. Since I had to wear the cosplay for a convention and I couldn't go barefoot, I decided to make my own Serenity shoes, also because the dress is so long that I had to lift it up to walk, and the shoes could showBunny Emoji-68 (Bouncy) [V4] . I decided to buy some white flats, because I can't walk in heels and I find them very very uncomfortableAngry emoticon  I bought the flats at Auchan, kind of the European Walmart Hatsune Miku-06 (Smile)

Aaand we're done! That's how I did my Princess Serenity cosplay! My total: 30$Money n Coins 
I know it's not perfect, but I am very happy with the result and the low budget Squee! the pieces of my Sailor Moon collection (The Moon Stick :smcmoonstick: and the Legendary Silver Crystal Pixel gemstones - Aquamarine) that I could use as cosplay items made it also pretty accurate. #47 Free Icon: Usagi Tsukino (Sailor Moon) 50x50 

Thank you everybody for reading this! #31 Free Icon: Usagi Tsukino (Sailor Moon) 50x50 

Peace, love, warm hugs Frozen - Olaf's Icon
