Sailor Moon Costume Tips & FAQs

Transform into the iconic and beloved character of Sailor Moon with our comprehensive costume guide FAQ. Embrace the magical and heroic essence of the lead character from the “Sailor Moon” anime and manga series as we address your key questions about creating a costume that captures her distinct and enchanting style.

Sailor Moon's costume is instantly recognizable with its unique blend of a sailor suit and magical girl elements. Key components include a blue sailor collar, a white leotard with a red bow on the chest and a blue bow on the back, a blue pleated skirt, long white gloves with red accents, and red knee-high boots. Don't forget her tiara, gold moon earrings, and the iconic odango hairstyle (meatball head) with long blonde pigtails.

Sailor Moon's hairstyle is a defining part of her look. You'll need to create or buy a long blonde wig styled into two pigtails. Each pigtail is topped with a round, meatball-like bun (odango). Accessorize the hair with red or pink hairpieces that resemble her odango covers and white feather clips.

The costume should ideally be made from stretchable, body-fitting fabric like spandex or lycra for the leotard. The sailor collar and skirt can be made from a slightly heavier fabric like cotton or polyester blend. The gloves can be made from stretch satin for a shiny and sleek appearance.

For authenticity, include Sailor Moon's moon-shaped tiara, gold crescent moon earrings, and the brooch in the center of her front bow. The boots should be red and can be created by modifying existing boots with fabric or paint. The back bow should be large and flowing, matching the skirt's color.

Including quotes from Sailor Moon can add depth to your portrayal. Some iconic lines include: "In the name of the moon, I'll punish you!," "I am Sailor Moon, the champion of justice!," "Moon Prism Power, Make Up!," "I'm not a crybaby!" and "I will right wrongs and triumph over evil, and that means you!." These quotes capture Sailor Moon's brave and determined yet playful and loving character, making them great for enhancing your portrayal of the anime icon.

About Sailor Moon

Usagi Tsukino is a normal 14-year-old girl living a happy, cheerful life in the manga series Sailor Moon. But everything changes when she meets a talking cat named Luna. This special cat gives Usagi Tsukino the ability to transform into Sailor Moon, which is her magical alter-ego. At first, she was a cry baby but quickly matured into a strong heroine. She was given the enormous task of defeating the Dark Kingdom which is controlled by Queen Beryl who constantly releases evil forces with whom she must defeat.

She is not the only Sailor soldier, though. She is also joined by Sailor Venus, Sailor Mars, Sailor Uranus, Sailor Mercury and Sailor Jupiter. After repeatedly defeating the evil forces from the Dark Kingdom, Sailor Moon re-emerges as Princess Serenity, the ruler of all the Sailor Soldiers. She has a boyfriend named Mamoru Chiba who is highly influential in her life. Though a superheroine, she loves ice cream and is often lazy.
