Sailor Mars, the Pretty Guardian of the Fire can be created through amazing cosplay. It required “a lot of trial and error” for this to be developed.
The fiery Sailor Mars has been brought into real life by a skilled Sailor Moon fan.
Images of the amazing cosplay were uploaded on Reddit by the user Lex Lunar. According to the creator of the costume, it took “a lot of trial and error” to construct. I created a lot of mockups before I could even touch the fabric. The only formal sewing class I’ve taken were the home economics classes at school, but I’d love to learn more professional techniques to get my work ‘finished’ on the inside.”
