I was asked to be part of a large NoFlutter Burlesque Sailor Scout group about a month before the virus hit the US. Just a week before quarantine began, I started working on Sailor Mars. With quarantine in place, I finished her in record time, as she provided much needed stress relief and escapism from the realities of what is happening.
The cosplay has a TON of elements: Cupped Corset, Pocket Hoops, Shorts, Overskirt, Bolero, Gloves, Circlet, ALL THE BOWS. Sailor Mars is FAR outside my normal box and I felt it was time for a push on my comfort levels. I honestly couldn’t be happier with how she turned out.
