Sailor Moon was a progressive show in a lot of ways. When the anime first debuted in the early 90s, it introduced one of the first, and certainly biggest, lesbian anime couples on screen with Sailor Uranus and Sailor Neptune. Besides offering numerous episodes where the Sailor Scouts fought against numerous extraterrestrial threats in order to protect the earth, the series also had some smashing fashion styles when the Scouts weren't just in costume, but in their civilian ware. Now, one fan has decided to recreate the many outfits of Serena and her friends in real life.
Twitter User QiinQueen shared their fashion that perfectly mimicked the outfits of the Sailor Scouts from a numerous number of early episodes of Sailor Moon, all of them seeming to revel in the feel of the 1980s and 1990s:
เง้อคนนี้น่ารัก คอนเทนค์คือแต่งตัวตามตัวละครใน เซเลอร์มูน กุ๊กกิ๊กมาก เอาละ มีไอเดียแต่งตัวไปทำงานจากตัวการ์ตูนแทนละ pic.twitter.com/o3IlTDqAt3— 🌹qiinqueen (@qiinqueen) October 28, 2019
The Sailor Moon series is one of the most recognizable anime franchises in the world, even though it doesn't come out in anime form on the same steady clip as Dragon Ball and One Piece. Still, Serena and her team mates manage to find other ways to enter into the public mind with movies, live stage plays, and even recent special features and attractions at the amusement park, Universal Studios Japan, over the summer.
Fans of the series are still attempting to find outfits that will do justice to Sailor Moon and the Sailor Scouts, whether they are in their uniforms or civvies.
What do you think of these Sailor Moon outfits brought to life? Who is your favorite Sailor Scout? Feel free to let us know in the comments or hit me up directly on Twitter @EVComedy to talk all things comics and anime!
