The Butterfly Effect by Tsuzukikun The Butterfly Effect by Tsuzukikun
Still stabbing my eyes out with two commissions that I'm trying new things with (perspective WTH?!!?) so I thought I'd throw this up in the meantime.

Another shot of my Sailor Heavy Metal Papillon from the Sailor Moon Sailor Stars Manga. Only ever seen in about 5 panels near the end when she's standing in a graveyard with three freshly dug graves for Sailor Moon, Chibi Chibi and Princess Kakyuu, Papillon is the Soul Hunter, guiding the souls of the dead Star Seeds.

Debuted at Sakura Con 2010 in Seattle WA, with a huge ass Sailor Moon Stars group that was full of every possible rarely seen senshi (included Guardian Cosmos, as cosplayed by *Pink-Bunnie ) and would you believe that there wasn't a single duplicate cosplayer? (atleast at our shoot anyway, there was a bigger shoot earlier in the day but due to wing span and limited mobility, we missed that one) :XD:

Few notes on construction:

Bra was well..a bra, covered with the shiney purple which was then painted with black puffy paint to get that "scaled" look. Then I took dark blue and teal fabric paints to it for a neat multicoloured effect. Arm warmers, choker, leg bands an waist band all painted with the same technique.

:iconpink-bunnie: as well the overall construction of this thing (I just paint, I have no sewing skills whatsoever) also beaded the circlet and pieced together the wings. Wings are layers of craft foam, cut into all separate shapes and glued together for a more 3-D look, with wire through the layers for stability. Must invest in either more wire, or stronger wire should these ever be redone.

Overall, LOVE this cosplay :heart:

Yes for sure! Whenever I can afford to go to a convention again and I need to totally redo her wings. We scrapped the old ones after the move. >.>

My best friend/roommate/waifu made it for me, I do detailing like the painting and jewels, things like that. I'm not proficient with a sewing machine s I'm usually fabric cutting bitch :XD: Which I don't mind. But thank you so much!

Yeah, my sewing machine is the same way. Most of my sewing stuff is small things because I am much more accurate at hand sewing and it takes me forever. >_>

Omgoodness you look so amazing~! It's sadly rare to see any Sailor Stars cosplayers at cons. I would have nearly died of happiness, after taking a picture of course, if I ever ran into you or your group.

Seriously can't even begin to describe how much I love this ♥

LOL aww I'm so glad you approve! I agree, there isn't nearly enough of Stars (aside from the starlights of course) which is why I wanted to do Papillon. :heart: I love doing the lesser seen characters!

ChezanoRakuen Featured By Owner Aug 23, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
I completely agree. Lesser seen characters ftw~!

Next year me and my friends have planned a SM Villain group of sorts (still recruiting people!), and I'm supposed to be Lead Crow. I am actually really excited for this and hoping we can manage and pull it off. SM Villains rarely get done too ugh
