Rad Sailor Moon Cosplay Brings Battle Armor to Sailor Senshi
Be still my heart.
Good cosplay has a way of transporting you to a different time, a different place, an alternate universe perhaps. But this isn't good cosplay. This is great cosplay. This group of incredible cosplayers has created battle-ready sailor scouts from Sailor Moon, blending fantasy and anime together in one glorious, conceptual group cosplay piece.
I'm in awe of the attention to detail and creativity that comes into play when crafting any sort of cosplay, but these sailor scouts take it to the next level by ensuring that their character permeates out of every design detail. Take, for instance, the fact that Sailor Uranus' shoulder guards are sharper than Mercury's, indicating Uranus' electric capabilities and Mercury's affinity for bubbles.
Gaze upon the glorious details of these wartime sailor scouts and let us know your favorite design.

Gotta love that Chibi-Usa.
Hm, can't decide who is breast... i mean best...
Yeah... You know, watching Sailor-Moon as a 13 year old boy leaves you with some weird "triggers" even 20 years down the road.
No... no... certainly not. Sorry don't feel those.
And WTF about those boobplates those make any of those women an H cup. Very distracting.
Saturn and Pluto are tied for the best, Sailor Moon second, and Sailor Mercury third for the best designs. I wish they had been able to find other girls for Mars, Venus, and Jupiter, but this is still amazing. Even Chibi Usa looks good, and I cannot stand that character, either in the old show or the new Crystal.
That Mercury side on is... um.. wow. It looks a little over the top from side on. Front on.. yeah I'm ok with it, they all look like they went kinda crazy with the push-up bras but whatever I don't really have a problem with that, they were going for a certain aesthetic. Still looks cool overall, although some of the armor looks a little... paper mache-ish. I think I like the Saturn one the best though.
