Sailor Jupiter / Makoto Kino
I may be short, but that didn't stop me from cosplaying this gorgeous girl! I never really considered cosplaying her at first because of the obvious height difference, but when I found this green satin I fell in LOVE with how it looked on my skin tone, and knew that there was no way I could resist also adding her to my collection of scouts. I actually really surprised myself, she ended up being one of my favorite scouts I've done so far! The hair style really suits me, I feel. Plus I adore my super intense boots ;P

About This Costume
The suit is matte spandex, self-lined for ultimate opacity.
I used peau de soie satin for all of the green parts (skirt, collar, choker, and glove rolls, back bow) and Casa matte satin for the front and back bow. Regrettably, both satins were discontinued in these colors. The green was kelly green, and pink was sachet pink, and I'll forever be salty about it because I ADORE these colors so much! Darn.
I went for a thinner manga style for my tiara, which was made using PETG plastic and spray painted gold, and it sticks on with fashion tape. The gem is a Swarovski crystal, and I made my brooch with resin casting.
I have tutorials on how I made the collar and front bow on my YouTube channel. I'm also adding more parts like how I did the skirt! I have two videos for the skirt up so far, but it's pretty involved, so it's broken up into a few videos. More tutorials will come soon- whenever my video editor decides to work again, hahaha
After making Sailor Mars and Neptune, and having a blast in doing so, I became quite the addict for making senshi uniforms and went on to create several more, including all of the inner planets, and most of the outer planets. Only the Moons and Saturn are left for me to do of the main sailor cast!
Be sure to check out some of my patterns on Etsy if you're interested in making one of these looks for yourself! More patterns and sizes coming soon, also!
