If you’re ever in need of a fresh idea for a costume, consider taking a familiar character and putting said character in a different time period. Morgan Donner recently did this with Sailor Moon, and the results are gorgeous. She created a spin on the costume that puts the character in a 16th century Italian gown. Morgan loves researching clothing from that era and has experience making historical costumes. The project started with a sketch as Morgan figured out how to adapt Sailor Moon’s recognizable red, white, and blue uniform into a gown.
She shared information about assembling the gown at her website, and I’m especially intrigued by the construction of the bodice. Rather than using boning in the piece, she opted to try heavy duty felt interfacing. This technique gives the bodice a smoother, flatter look.
See a few photos of the design and progress below and get further details on the making of this costume at Morgan’s website.
