I want to color it but I have to wait till my lappy comes back home to me from the lappy hospital. That should be this week with a little luck. I am thinking the main color will be a navy blue with white trims perhaps. This is what is in my head right now but I am sure it will change when i am playing around with the colors in Photo-shop. (You can click on the picture to embiggen it)
The main elements that I took from Sailor Moon and added to the dress are the pleats (even though her skirt does not have box pleats), the lace just off the shoulders mimicking the sailor collar, and the princess seam lines and seam just under the bust. I looked at all of Sailor Moons fuku's for inspiration. Ones from the anime, manga, original designs, and all of her different transformations.
I really love the embellishment on the front. My husband has just gotten into screen printing so I thought I would utilize it in this dress. A simple silhouette of Sailor Moon sitting on a moon with clouds and surrounded by tiny stars reminds me of the Vampire Requiem print with what looks like Tuxedo Mask flying through the air. (I really would kill to have a dress or JSK in that print. It is just so darn expensive.)
Anyway, I will be posting more of the dress when I am coloring it and sewing it.
