Cosplay: Sailor Moon – Chibiusa ‘Rini’

March 27, 2010

I know this has been featured on Columbia’s CosplayHolic site but I just couldn’t resist. This is Chibiusa’s first sailor seishi form in the Sailor Moon S series (might also be based on the manga). I love this cosplay for so many reasons. For one, it’s once again an infamously poorly cosplayed character done so amazingly well. Everything from the hair details (which I learned can be formed when wrapped around Styrofoam balls), to the pose, to the proportions of the actual costume is impeccable. Even the coloured contacts were chosen well because they don’t look creepy like most red coloured contacts do. My only quails with this cosplay is the apparent lack of tiara but beyond that great job on the cosplay! I just wish I knew who the cosplayer was.

Creator Naoko Takeuchi describes Chibiusa as a precocious brat who likes pulling pranks. She is the daughter of Usagi Tsukino and Mamoru Chiba. Her real name is the same as her mother’s, but is called Chibiusa in Japanese (and Rini in English) to avoid confusion between the two. Her name in the English-language version of Sailor Moon, Rini, is a diminutive of “Serena”, the name of her mother. She is known for having pink hair put into a unique style that resembles rabbit ears on top of her head.” – Wikipedia: Chibiusa

Sorry kiddies I’m getting tired of the character summaries and my cosplay comments come up awkwardly short. So from now on you’ll be seeing these wiki-blurbs. Hurray.
