Serenity by saraqael Serenity by saraqael
Photography, costume, and reluctant costume-wearer are all me.

I know I shouldn't be posting this since I'm not wearing the sleeves, and this was supposed to be a 'test run' photo... but I had a blast taking these pictures today. The fabric photographs beautifully- I just wish I could do it more justice!

The bracelet and hair-doodlies aren't the final versions either, they should be replaced with fake moonstones to match the dress. Also, I know the wig is blonde and since the dress is manga, the hair should be white- however, I can't justify making a white version of this wig at the moment. I could have photoshopped it, but I felt that was cheating. -__- So maybe in the future when I get finished photos of this.

Oh well! I had fun! :3

Hey there! I used your photo as reference for a watercolor. I hope you don't mind. I found your photo without a name attached to it... If I had known you were on DA, I would have asked you first! [link]

Ohhh gosh this is absolutely GORGEOUS. ; A; So so lovely. Would it be too troublesome to ask what sort of fabric you used? I've had a hell of a time trying to find something that drapes so perfectly. ;;

you know what...I like the fact that you made the wig blonde and NOT YELLOW. Yellow hair in cartoons represents blonde so when folks do yellow hair instead of blonde it looks...cheesy...especially being that in real life...THIS is what Usagi looks like. As for the dress OMFG!!! Who cares sleeves no sleeves you made this and this is so beautiful!!! This is justice right here!!! I love all your cosplay it's so on the mark it's scary good beautiful!!! More ppl should take it seriously like this. And even if you made the wig white...I think it'll still be just as beautiful especially if you photo shop it and make it silvery. I love it.
