Cosplay: SailorMoon – Outer Scouts

April 12, 2009


A cosplay blog is never complete without a Sailor Moon cosplay and what better than an amazing group cosplay. And I’ll be honest. Group cosplay is probably one of the most difficult things to do well. But these three girls pulled it off flawlessly. Not only are the costumes amazingly detailed but the hair, poses and well look in general (because everybody knows SailorMoon is infamous for the not-so-attractive-cosplayers) are spot on. Even their accessories (which aren’t featured in this picture) were beautifully crafted. I wish I had more room to gush about their cosplay but I’ll leave it at this.

Unless you’ve never seen the light of day, you’ve probably heard about Sailor Moon. Basically it’s about a group of girls who receive powers of the planets to defend the earth from the evils trying to take over. The “Outer” sailor scouts (in quotations because Jupiter is oddly an “inner” scout) don’t show up until the Sailor Moon S series. Sailor Neptune (on the right) is a quiet and timid girl who is known for her urethral beauty. Sailor Uranus (on the left) is the tomboy and is the lover of Sailor Neptune (yes there are lesbian connotations here). In the English series however, Neptune and Uranus are portrayed as very close “cousins” to get around the whole young audience issue. Sailor Pluto on the other hand is the gatekeeper of time. She is very graceful and “old-souled”. Although the three are basically a part of the sailor scout gang, they portray very different powers and also often tag along as “outsiders”.


note: The cosplayers are actually the previous Sailor uniforms before the above pictured uniforms were implimented for all the scouts (minus the gold lining). Pluto didn’t have sleeves, the ribons were short, and neptune and uranus didn’t have the semi-transparent sleeves either. Just for consistency sake.

Edit: Thanks to Columbia the webmaster of Cosplay Holic for informing me that these are the uniforms from the musical of Sailor Moon. I confirmed with the original source to make sure it wasn’t the cast of the musical. These are indeed cosplayers who did a top notch job. Thanks again!

    They look really good… and you’re right, usually the Sailor Moon cosplayers are…. -no comment-

  3. 16. Its like you read my mind! You appear to know a lot about this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you could do with a few pics to drive the message home a bit, but other than that, this is excellent blog. A fantastic read. I’ll certainly be back.
