The wig was bought at a convention. I cut the length and styled with heat. The points are secured with tacky glue. The emblem was made of foam sealed with mod podge and painted gold then glued to an alligator clip.

The cape was made by drafting a pattern of my neck and drawing on the shape of the collar of the cape. Once the collar was cut out I ironed on interfacing and sewed the body of the cape to the front edge of the collar right sides together. The inside was turned by hand and whipped stitched in place. Once the collar was assembled trim was sewn on by hand and the bottom was leveled and hemmed. • The gloves were made by tracing my hand onto paper and extending the wrist

outward to make the glove gape away from my hand like the reference picture. The pattern was traced to white spandex, then doubled over and sewn on the traced line. A lining for the outer cuff was attached to the bottom and turned inward then hand sewn in place to allow stretch. The blue band was made from a tube of blue suede, turned rights side out and sewn to be flat. The ends were finished and then the stripes were tacked to the front of the glove and close on the bottom of the glove with snaps.

• The thin blue arm band was made from a tube of blue suede, turned rights side out and sewn to be flat. The strip was then measured to my arm circumference and sewn together.

• The long arm bands were patterned by using saran wrap and masking tape to get a rough shape. The pattern was then modified to lace up instead of being a solid piece to allow for better arm movements as well as to add a touch of personal design choices.

The skirt is a box pleated skirt that was made at the longest length needed and cut into the diagonal shape after assembled. The bottom was hemmed and stiff lace was added as trim instead of a white band to make the skirt more delicate.

The belt is blue suede, buckram, ribbon, and blue/green pleather. The four pleather shapes that hang over the skirt were easier to place on the belt instead of the skirt in order to keep all the skirt closures hidden. The belt was assembled by cutting the desired length out of buckram and covering the front with suede, the suede was sewn on and the buckle mechanism was attached then the pleather shapes were sewn to the underneath. A ribbon the same width as the belt was then whip stitched to the back of the belt to cover all the raw edges. After trying the belt on I marked where the belt holes needed to go. The holes were then punched out with a leather punch and metal eyelets were installed by hand.

The socks were a gift and I do not know where they were purchased from. The blue stripe was made from a tube of blue suede, turned rights side out and sewn to

be flat. They were then measured to the right length and tacked in four places to the socks.

The shoes were thrifted black heels. I cut any decorations off and stuffed them with news paper to fill them out while I worked on them. The first alteration was painting the sole and heel with gold paint, they were painted in several layers to make it opaque and sealed in with mod podge to keep the paint from chipping. Once the paint was dried I pinned cotton material around the boot to create a pattern for the boot cover. The pattern was refined and pinned to the blue pleather. Once it was assembled I used contact cement to adhere the cover to the boot. The cuff of the boot is two rectangles sewn together with wire attached around the edge to make them poseable and trimmed with gold ribbon that was then painted with a few layers of gold paint to match the heel.

The soul gem was made by getting silver backed oblong gems and stripping the silver backing off of the back of the gem and painting the moon shape onto the gem. The negative space was filled in with more gold paint. The gold base was made from foam sealed with mod podge and painted gold. It attaches to my skin with eyelash glue.

The pattern of the shirt was made by using cling wrap and masking tape to get the basic shape of my torso, a mock up was then made and altered until it got the desired shape. I then cut the new pattern out on white canvas and did the side seams up with French seams and hemmed the top edge. The bottom lower edge was turned in once and then turned in again but with a pleated trim instead of a hem, this left the trim with raw edges that were secured with fray check. The trim was made by cutting out 2 in wide strips of the white canvas and sewing them together end to end. The long strip was then folded in half and pleated by hand with one-inch pleats. The front of the top was then trimmed with gold ribbon that was folded in half and hand sewn on. It closes at the top with a snap and the buttons are from a vintage collection. The breast plate holds the top in place.

The breast plate was made on a strapless bra. The bra was put on and then using the clingwrap method the under bust and cup patterns were made. The cups were cut out and sewn together then glued straight to the cups of the bra. Using the under bust pattern, I made the rest of the breast plate. I cut the shape out of foam with no seam allowance. Using the foam template, I cut out blue pleather with seam allowance. I then used plastidip to seal the foam piece, once it was sealed I used contact cement to glue the pleather to the foam. Once it was dry I took the eyelet installation kit and installed three eyelets on each side of the back of the breast plate. I then glued the cup area of the foam piece to the underwire section of the bra. Using hot glue I then trimmed the edge of the piece with gold ribbon and glued the pleated trim to the inside of the top edge. The piece laces up with gold ribbon.

The wig was purchased from Lucaille.com only and the bangs were trimmed, no other styling was needed.

The necklace is red ribbon that was cut to the size of her neck and then secured with a snap.

The dress was made using the pattern Simplicity 1611. It was made with pink cotton as the base. The yellow panel is a pale-yellow cotton with a white music note pattern on it, it was made by turning a tube and lining it with fleece to give it a raised affect. The tube was flattened and lace was added to the edges of it. The tube was then pinned onto the dress and sewn in place. The neck line was then hemmed and lace was sewn onto the front of the dress. The sleeves were made by upsizing a sleeve pattern and cutting it out on white eyelet cotton. The sleeve was then folded at the edge to form a tube and elastic was inserted. The sleeve was then sewn up and gathered into the armhole. The zipper was installed and then the bottom of the dress was hemmed.

The skirt was made by drafting a circle skirt and using 3x waist measurement for the waist of it. A rectangle that was 3x plus an inch the measurement of the circumference of the skirt was cut out, hemmed, and gathered into a ruffle. The ruffle was basted onto the lining layer and then sandwiched between the two layers of the skirt. Two rows of stitching were made along the bottom in order to make a casing for elastic. The waist was also flipped under to make a casing for elastic. Elastic was then pulled through both ends of the skirt.

The petals were made by drafting a circle skirt and then turning the bottom into the petal shape by separating it into six equal sections and putting the point in the middle of each section as a guideline. Two petal skirts were cut out and sewed together to make a lined skirt. The edge was beaded using a continuous line method of hand sewing them down. Then the appropriated number of gems were made by sanding off the silver backing from a clear gem, painting them red, and hot gluing them in place. The waist of the skirt was then flipped under and hand sewed to the main white skirt.

The soul gem was made from a clear silver backed gem. The silver backing was removed with sand paper and the gem was buffed with a nail file buffer. The gem was then painted pink and attached to wax paper. The shape of the gem holder was sketched on the paper and made by carefully shaping gold hot glue around the shape on the paper. The shape was cut out and refined with heat from the nozzle of the gun. The gem is attached to the skin with eyelash glue.

The shoes were thrifted and socks purchased. The ruffles are a garter made by stretching elastic and sewing it to lace then sewing it into a loop.

• The base of the sword was a toy katana bought from Spirit Halloween and altered as follows

o The original handle of the sword was first cut off

o Then using masking tape and blue paint the blue stripe was painted on. Then the tip was dry brushed with red paint.

o A cardboard template was designed for the handle, then two were glued to the base of the sword and a partial template in the middle.

o Then cardboard tubes were cut and glued to the inside of the cardboard templates for stabilization.

o The handle cover was made with cardboard and foam and sealed with newspaper strips and mod podge.

o All pieces were then painted by hand and sticker decorations were glued on. To make the weapon seem more magical and add a bit of flair we put music note stickers on the hilt in the arrangement of ‘Sayaka’s Score’ which is the music notes that surround her as a magical girl in episode 9.

• The base of the bow was a large pink and white rose bought from Hobby Lobby and was altered as follows

o The base of the large rose is made of wire and was bent into the correct shape. Then two smaller roses were cut and bent into shape then glued near the top. o The entire base of the bow was wrapped in newspaper strips that were Mod

podged on. Once the base was dried it was painted with acrylic paint.

o The paint of the bow was then sealed in using spray lacquer. After the lacquer had dried small led lights were glued in place in the petals of the large flower as well as on the base of the large flower were the stem connects to it.

o Small pink flowers were added around the bow as well as fake leaves. Clear silver backed gems were used for the gems on the bow. The gems were sanded on the back to remove the silver backing and painted with pink nail polish and glued to the bow in the desired locations. Pink elastic is tied around the top and bottom of the bow to allow it to be unstrung in transit.

o The arrow was made by gluing two left over flower stems together and placing carboard on it for the tip and end of the arrow. The whole arrow was then covered in news paper and Mod podge and painted. The paint was sealed in with spray lacquer and flowers were glued to it.
