Artist Gladzy Kei comes up with beautiful armored takes on characters like Disney Princesses and Sailor Scouts. Her design for Sailor Moon’s armor is absolutely gorgeous, and Minana Cosplay brought it to life in an equally gorgeous costume. She used black Worbla, also known as Worbla’s Black Art, to make the armor and the dark base really made the colors pop. The breastplate, gauntlets, and everything else include a ton of details between the Worbla lines, jewels, and metallic finish paint. You can see what it takes to put the epaulettes together in this video (it’s in French but there are English subtitles):
I’m dazzled by the in progress pictures.
