Cosplay is wonderful, but do you ever find yourself wishing you could dress like your favorite characters without having to go full-on comic convention? Turns out you can — with right combinations of accessories and adorable dresses, you can actually put together some really cute outfits inspired by Sailor Moon. It might be something obvious like adding a Luna iron-on patch to your favorite bomber jacket, or maybe a more subtle nod like a rosette bracelet for Tuxedo Mask, or a Sailor Scout-inspired bow tie. No matter what route you decide to go though, there are lots of ways to pay homage to your favorite anime.
Because honestly? If you grew up in the '90s, chances are you remain to this day a card-carrying Sailor Moon fan. After all, it was a major fixture in TV, circa the mid-90s — and who could resist the siren call of a teenaged girl gang of superheroines who fought crime in adorable sailor suits? Seriously, their empowering brand of sass and fashion sense was unparalleled — so it's only natural that, a full two decades later, we're still trying to figure out how to be as cool as Sailor Moon and co.
Alas, we may never wield the Moon Stick or the Silver Crystal, but you know what we can do? Look fly as hell in Sailor Scout-inspired fashion.
1. Modern Sailor Scout
Pair an oversized bow tie with a cute short skirt in the color of your choice, and you've basically got the whole Sailor Scout look on lock. Bonus points for fun accessories, such as an adorable Crisis Moon Compact keychain.
2. '90s Luna
3. Femme Tuxedo Moon
OK, so this outfit doesn't include an actual tuxedo, but the rose motif is a nice nod to Sailor Moon's knight in black tie armor.
4. Mod Sailor Scout
5. Cosmic Heart Compact
6. Sailor Minimalism
7. Chic Luna
Put a trendy spin on the Luna aesthetic by adding a cutesy iron-on patch to a classic bomber. Combine with a fun LBD, and bam! Stylish Luna realness.
8. Princess Serenity
9. Twee Bunny
Remember how Sailor Moon's nickname was "Bunny?" (In the Japanese version, her character was usually called "Usagi," which translates to "rabbit"). At any rate, her wardrobe often incorporated bunny motifs, just like these adorable shoes.
10. Luna Tights
11. Cosmic Heart Compact
When it comes right down to it, it's actually not that hard to inject a little bit of the Sailor Moon fun into any outfit — whether that means sporting lots of moon and star shaped accessories, incorporating Sailor Scout-approved bows into every ensemble, or even going all out with the Cosmic Heart Compact.
