Moon Crystal Star Compact portable phone charger. This is a official HKG exclusive item that I stumbled onto on eBay and its bar far one of my favorite items yet. I love when you not only get a cool collector item that happens to be FUNCTIONAL! The compact opens up and you press the crystal to activate. All 4 lights up outside and the lights indicate how much power is left on the device. Sooo cool. May pickup the Moonstick next! 💖🌙💖
SERENITY NOTES PART 3: ACCESSORIES✨
Amazing pic!!: @progenitorphotography (thank u again!!)✨
Beautiful chibiusa-holding husbando: @annamcmoose 💕
-I used to have the anime version of the crown but I lost it ;0; Decided to make the manga version on the second round!
-I 3d modeled the crown in Maya and the wonderful @starsofcassiopeia printed it for me in clear resin. (if u want the model for ur cosplay dm me an email!)
-I wet sanded the model, painted it with jacquard pearlescent paint, and put some swarovskis on it.
✨WINGS / BOW✨
-I need to remake this as the actual manga bow lolol;; I’ll still be using a similar process. Currently my “bow” is just my original wings folded in.
-The tails are long half-heart shapes (similar to super fuku bow tails, but longer) and have nylon filament along the hem to create the floofy appearance.
-If you search “Neo queen serenity wing tutorial” you’ll probably find the tutorial I used for the top parts?
-The bended parts in the middle weave into the laces of my corset bodice.
-Another thing I’ll be remaking as a different version! This was from before I knew 3D modeling well so it’s mostly sculpted.
-The moon was a model by 3e8 on thingiverse, the ball is a wood-fillered styrofoam ball, the heart and crown details are apoxie sculpt, the “band” is craft foam, and the round things are cabochon pearls.
-It originally had the anime coloration, but I switched it to the manga color scheme for this round.
-The rod is an adjustable curtain rod (makes it easier to pack and transport)
-I’m the 3rd owner of this wig so it already had styling when I received it, I mostly just did some curling and rehab. I wish I knew who the original owner was!
-The base wig I’m 80% sure is from ebay.
-The hairline is a glued widows peak.
-There’s no stubbing, the buns are just tie-around and the pigtails underneath are mini-buns. I think this style suits Serenity better than foam odangos. The twintails are also tie-around.
-Everything is curled with a,,, variety of flutes and recorders,,
-I need to remake these too, they jus fabric flowers on poof sleeves lmao
So I did a thing yesterday... I spent months trying to put off buying this wand because it was too expensive. I was hoping for a price drop, but realized the price was only going higher. I could have gotten this for only $117 from Hot Topic when it first came out. I'm guessing a limited quantity was produced, because now it's up to like $225 on Amazon and even more ridiculous on ebay, like $300+😣 I ended up going to my local comic shop and buying it for $150 since it was the last place it was remotely reasonably priced. Picked up one for @kawaiibunnycorp too because she's been going through the same struggle with finding this wand. 💖
