Sailor Cosmos from Sailor Moon Cosplay
Marlent Marquez of the 3000 Brigade
looks absolutely stunning cosplaying as her personal design masquerade version of Sailor Cosmos from Sailor Moon! ♥ The detail on this costume is simply breathtaking and here's what she had to say about this incredible work...
"This was a major labor of love, put together over the course of about 7 months, piece by piece. There was a lot of wig-work, feather and lace work, and TONS of pearls (lol). Some of my favorite elements are the pearl swags on the arms and across the back, and the gold foil henna on one of the hands. It was also fun learning how to do the galaxy makeup-mask affect I was looking for, especially being very new to learning makeup effects. I was probably most intimated by the wig, but I think it came out lovely! This was also my first time designing a masquerade mask from scratch and I loved the final product.
I doubted myself so often and was very nervous about how it would all end up looking together. In the end, I was very happy with the way all of the details came out!
I also had help from my loving husband (Zack Marquez) with the brooches and staff (he's a great prop maker!). The chest brooch, staff, and skirt actually light up and transition through rainbow colors! Several accessories were custom made by amazingly talented artists, which I have included in the links and credits below.
The Silver Millennium Masquerade Ball was a magical night with an atmosphere, elegance, grandeur unlike any other. Furthermore, it was organized, executed, and attended by the most welcoming, supportive, and loving people you could ever imagine! It was truly a once in a lifetime experience I will cherish forever. I hope everyone gets to see photos of this amazing event, and the wonderful and talented people who attended!"
