For those who’ve been following the blog for a while, you remember how this Sailor Hawkeye game went the first time around. My friend Abby had done her own version of Sailor Black Widow and asked me reprise Sailor Hawkeye for her Sailor Avengers team. Since this team was veering a little more away from the traditional Sailor Moon fuku, I decided to have a little fun with it and make Version II to make hers.
The really cool part was that I was able to reuse parts of not only Hawkeye Version I but also a piece of my Sailor Pluto and even some bits of my Star Wars costumes. The skirt was the one big new part of the costume but thankfully I am a fabric hoarder and still had enough of the purple bow fabric to use for the skirt roll.
Thank you to David Harback for the photography on the majority of these and to Rich and Strange for the photography on the captioned one! They were both wonderful to work with when we did this shoot at Awesome Con! (The con thing is also why there’s an invisible arrow thing going on…)
Sailor Hawkeye: Bria
Sailor Black Widow: Abby Rou Cosplay
As you may have noticed, we’ve been slowly aggregating the various costume efforts of our past years for your viewing pleasure. (And also to document the rise and fall of our wasted free time…) So we’re happy to announce that the Costumes section is up and running! You’ll find our respective galleries nestled within, as well as convention schedules and future cosplay plans.
And of course, there’s our beloved Sailor Hawkeye and Sailor Black Widow, and our shared enthusiasm for Miss Braddock as reflected in our cover pictures — just click either of them to get to our respective galleries!
We’ll also be featuring some of our costumes occasionally, and you’ll see some of our favourites make their way to our tumblr! And stay tuned as we start to get our heads back into the game for Katsucon 2013…
