Galaxia and her right hands by Leaf-nin Galaxia and her right hands by Leaf-nin
My not exactly secret project I've been working on for about two months. These outfits are all available on my etsy:
Galaxia: www.etsy.com/listing/232377015…
Phi www.etsy.com/listing/232371199…
Chi www.etsy.com/listing/232370259…

Phi and Chi
Sometimes known as Sailor Φ and Sailor X, these two are manga-only characters who served as Galaxia's right hands. They have some of the most unique outfits in the series, and honestly the main reason why I fell in love with both of them so quickly. It's a pity they don't get a lot of page time.

Phi (in red) was the easier of the two to make, much to my surprise as I've never made a onesie suit. Chi (in green) gave me the most difficulty because of the skirt, which is more like a floor-length loin cloth. I made them both sexy and scandalous, as the animamates often are, with plunging necklines and backs. Chi's outfit is very high cut on the sides.

Both are cotton with sequin and acrylic gem accents.

Galaxia
Oh boy Galaxia Galaxia. I expected the outfit to be hard, but not this hard good lord. It took me round about 50 hours total to make this outfit, not including the number of times I had to yank everything out and redo it. I made her in Sera Myu style since I had this gorgeous gold fabric to work with. This is my first Myu outfit! Hooray!

All the red beads are crystallized and they shine a cherry red in direct light. The top gem is crystallized as well, going with Naoko-sensei's design of it being a crystal. The front white beads are pearled and the gems are all acrylic.

The doll in this is actually completely bald. The headpiece is actually a hat for a base with synthetic doll hair wefted on top. (I'll post some information about how I made this at a later date). Wefting is basically a technique used to make doll wigs. I made the top first then twirled the curls around my finger then sewed them all down to make it look like natural doll hair. Originally the headpiece was going to be embroidered hair but it looked too unnatural.

This is my first outfit to include shoes. They are plastic vintage boots painted then covered and decorated. They're made to look like the covered boots the actors in sera myu wear.

More to come.
Once I am done with a commission, I will be adding a larger cast of Shadow Galactica as well as finishing up Eternal Sailor Moon. It's a dream come true to make this cast, manga, anime, and myu style. I plan on doing every single one I can, including the lesser knowns and one of my own designs.
