In January, I was so excited to hear that the Sailor Moon R Movie was being released in theaters. A friend and I bought tickets to see the Japanese subtitled version.
I wore my Sailor Moon casual cosplay outfit, but I wanted more accessories to go with it. I must have gotten ride of my original Moon Rod (why did I do that!?!) so I decided to try my hand at crafting one of clay.
I started with a metal skewer which I covered in aluminum foil.
Next, I made a crescent shape,
And a ball for the Imperium Silver Crystal.
I forced the skewer through the crescent,
Then impaled the crystal atop.
I covered the stick with pink clay.
Then I began to cover the crescent with yellow. I ran out of yellow, so I filled the rest in with white.
I cooked it according to package directions.
Finally, I painted it all and added lines to the Silver Crystal.
It turned out hideous! But I completed it in an afternoon and had it ready for the movie that night. So, I was pretty pleased! More clay would have solved my problems. Now I know for next time.
