Sailor Xiao by sakkysa Sailor Xiao by sakkysa
Sailor Xiao (pronounced shee'ou) is a product of my friend Himeno's mind. You can learn more about Xiao and her friends at Frozen Fire: Liquid Flame.

This is my second costume I've finished. I had a boatload of help from me mum-in-law, *SleyTheDent. She is my coach and more moral compass. :giggle:

Anyway, the only things we didn't make here are the gloves (eBay) the wig ($14) and the boots (but we did put the stripes on them). Everything else we made. :heart: I am IN LOVE with this costume, and super super proud of it. The bodysuit was basically a nightmare, and it was a HUGE learning process for me and mum for working with 4-way stretch. Some parts, like the bow and collar, took two tries. Other stuff, like the arm guards, we nailed on the first try. Actually, we did the skirt twice too! Mum kind of did most of the second skirt though. :nod: I made all the accessories and there are close ups in my gallery.

The skirt is way too short on the short end. Seriously, my butt is hanging out all over the place. LOL

Oh well. ^_^

This costume debuted at Animazement 2009! :dance:

Ty *Adrastia217 for adjusting the lighting for me :heart:

Hmm, love it!

Ok, so first thing I notice is belt; is it supposed to be a bit loose like that? I would imagine it to be just a bit more tighter so that it doesn't constantly bother one by falling down >_>;; *has horrible experience*

Also *reads descrip again* Oh, you already know about the skirt :blush: Did you use sewing patterns? (Well, I imagine you do, duh!) There are some sailor suit patterns that make life easier :)


Otherwise....I think I got nothing else xDD I think you did a very good job for being your second costume :wow: I think it was my third or fourth costume where I finally managed to work out the kinks in my costume making skills, design, sewing, etc. xDDD
What do you think?

@_@ Around how much did that costume cost for the person commissioning it? *is WAY too fat/short to cosplay Sailor Amity*

This one my mother in law and I made as a "gift" for =mucai :D But most Sailor Fuku commissions are in the $150-250 range depending on details (I've commissions maybe 4 or 5 of them?).

What a pretty costume. Also, how do you do that belt thing that separates the top of the leotard (since that's what I'll be using from now on) from the skirt? I want to know because I'm trying to make a Sailor Saturn costume.

For this costume, that's just a belt. It's not actually meant to make a V shape like the canon sailor senshi. ^_^

everything looks great! maybe a stiffer fabric for the skirt next time? i feel like it didn't take the pleat form very well.

randomness: i had a sailor XIA once & an arc in an SM fanfic called frozen fire liquid flame!!! :o this is mad years ago of course [the fic]. just thought it was interesting!

keep it up! can't wait to see the next one!

The design for the character doesn't have a pleated skirt, it's mean to be loose like that. ^_^

Thanks! I can't wait to get started on another one :D

Awesome! I wanna finish my cosplay now. But I have no sewing machine and no way to use one. And the prospect of sewing a skirt my hand is attrocious.

Awesome awesome awesome costume. Hope it goes over well at the con.

Sakky its wonderfully done. I always admire your cosplay. I wish I had the legs for it, if I did I'd so attempt some of the people from towers fukus and especially my Titan's one.

I think you make an awesome Xiao
