I got an email with a photo of my charms from InkitLabs! They were very helpful and responded quickly to all my questions while setting the files up for print. I can’t wait for them to arrive!
And I also ordered my first set of Sailor Mew t-shirts last night, going with the popular vote of dark purple. (Perhaps in the future if people feel strongly enough about it, we can have more colors available.)
I will have the charms at Anime Boston, as well as a print of the t-shirt graphic! The shirts themselves will not arrive in time, sadly. But never fear, everything will be available in my online store eventually.
Of course, I will also have a lot of other merch there, including Sister Claire prints, and Adventure Time and My Little Pony art. =)
Last year my friends & I got an Eternal Sailor Moon group together for Katsucon, since we’re all nerds & love making sailor senshi costumes every year. Lots of sewing parties & collaboration over a few months & this was the end result :)
Later we reprised part of the group & wore the costumes with our friends of Cupcake Cosplay, Starlighthoney (Eternal Sailor Moon) & Breathlessaire (Eternal Sailor Chibi Moon) at Otakon. & our friend Hamingutori as Jupiter, with Elly~Star as Princess Kakyuu.
So someone made all the inner scouts as playable characters for MUGEN (an open-source fighting game) and their attacks incorporate the attack animations from the show/movies and they look BADASS AS ALL HELL
I mean damn Sailor Moon is beating the crap out of Rei with her god-tier sonic wail and sparkly magics and Tuxedo Mask is just hanging out in a swivel chair and occasionally throwing roses
And Sailor Mercury with her computery weakness-seeking rapid fire smackdown of death
And Sailor Jupiter with her suicide electric assault
this is what an official Sailor Moon game should look like
