here comes the sappy post readers beware! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~
we all know that i’m a newbie cosplayers. first and foremost i have to thank the mooniverse for being so welcoming to me and for many of you for encouraging me to following my dreams. growing up i’ve always love sailormoon the show meant the world to me but usagi/moon herself was everything. she was a character who felt like she was more then fiction and that i could be her (without the magical powers and 2 minutes of transformation of course) the cosplay world brought this dream to life. i have also wanted to see a designated mooniegroup in denver and did research and waited to see what would pop up and i never saw anything. even with my weird obsession my wife @laoinsy supported me through my ideas. i was googling and one night i found @jackiefiggs this amazing cosplayer/chibi usa in colorado of all places. she inspired me and i thought maybe i had a shot of making this real so i reached out to her and from there met @scientista_cosplay and @aubryacosplay these ladies showed me that this dream could be real and helped me to create @moonrevengedenver i have been blessed with meeting so many amazing cosplayers and become very good friends. you guys know who you all all my peeps in my crew i’m talking to you!!
then the dream was expanded i wanted not only to be princess serenity but i wanted to make her and bring her to life on my own. well let me tell you there is no such thing as on your own. there are many people who encouraged me and gave me technical advice before i started. @mimi._.manga , @susyintheskydesigns , @diana.the.great , @vallynncosplay , @ray_altria
when i finally decided it was time it hit me. i barely know how to sew! instead of being smashed by the realization a friend of my wife’s mom heard what i wanted to do and said she teach me and help me make princessserenity and let me tell you that was a journey. after many long nights turned into months we finished her just in time for nandesukan2019 as a newbie i wasn’t ready to enter her in the contest but i met two fabulous photographers who took my dreams and brought them to photo!
thank you 🙏 so much to alex @lx.stox for this photo! 5g phones princessserenityz
