There is also the Butterick pattern, but that one is much harder to find and I believe it is out of order.

Lynleigh's site has sadly been removed from the internet, but luckily other's have saved the files and posted them. :) Maybe other Moonies can make more patterns and post in the future!

If you have any concerns, be sure to post them here! ;D The All-Purpose thread is also useful for everything and no question is too small or to big!

People to not commission:
Moonjustice (Quentin) he has recently been avoiding sending products out, blocking people on facebook (who he owes merchandise to) and ignoring claims.

I will post another post with how to's on the males and princesses if anyone has links on how to make them.

#6 EriBear18 on 7 years ago

Good job!

#7 RoseHanabira on 7 years ago

I recently went digging for this post, it might be worthwhile to put include in the thread! It holds a tutorial for Super Sailor Moon's ultra-long and flowy back bows, as well as a link to a different thread with a HUGE amount of tutorials for a lot of the props!

This site has heaps of tutorials:

#9 RoseHanabira on 7 years ago

I just noticed that MoonPrism wasn't in the list. She sells jewelery and other accessories, as well as props and staffs and other stuff, for all of the scouts.

#10 tarinalove on 7 years ago

added new information. :}

Updated the first post with clickable links! (Looks neater this way)

#11 tarinalove on 7 years ago

Anyone have any useful princess tutorials? I'm gonna make ANOTHER GIANT post with the formal wear. :}

#12 RoseHanabira on 7 years ago

:O tarina, you are a godsend. If you need any help digging through the 400 page thread for stuff I'd be more than happy to help (I have a minor obsession with doing things like that... seriously...).

#13 tarinalove on 7 years ago

Alright Rose! I am busy with costuming for the next 2 weeks and trying to get a little girl prepared to perform (unreliable urghhh) and my con is 15-16 days away! So I may be less likely to update, but I do want to add a section for fabrics, materials, and other useful things

#14 RoseHanabira on 7 years ago

Awesome! Admittedly I don't have much in the way of resources other than the scans of the dresses, but I'll comb my way through the thread over the next couple of weeks and compile a list.

#15 RoseHanabira on 7 years ago

Double-post, I know, please forgive me.

I found a pretty extensive Sailor Moon tutorial page while I was digging through the huge thread for formal wear stuff. I just skimmed it, it might be of use to somebody: [url]http://www.minimanga.com/~eminblack/sailormoonsnipits/smcostume.html[/url]

(By the way, I'm at page 46 of the mega-thread searching for formal wear. I'm compiling a list not only of interesting fabric findings, but also reference pictures as well. There wasn't a lot of discussion about it in the earlier part of the thread, it seems...)
