Hello!  Smiley

I have recently completed this doll for a swap member. It was a part of the Sailor Moon Warm Up Swap. (for an awesome crafter named Usagi-chan) Let me just say this, I love sailor moon! I have loved the show since late 1990s/ early 2000s. The show being the first anime for me, it will always hold a place in my heart. Well, when I saw the swap come up, I really wanted to be in it. But sadly, I couldnt at the time  Embarrassed  But!! When I saw an oppurtunity to angel for someone in the swap, I couldnt pass it up.  Smiley

Anyway, on to the doll. It was a pattern that I made up going along. I saw a few other crocheted sailor moons around the web, as well as on crafter, but they werent quite what i wanted to do. (I wanted something big headed, and just all around sweet looking) Needless to say, I love the way this came out!  Cheesy

With all that hair, she is definitely top heavy. But I couldnt deny her the signature hairstyle!  Tongue  This is my first crocheted doll. I've done a few cupcakes, a few animals, but never a human. haha

Enough talk! Tell me what you think!


...because Sailor Moon hangs out in trees... right? Right.  Wink



Isn't she cute?  Smiley  P.S. Her legs arent crooked, I just put her that way without realizing it  Roll Eyes


And another fun picture: A group shot of her and the other little critters I made her in the swap


Say "Cheesssseeeee"

She's awesome! I love every detail on her (esp the costume, and I can't believe how fast you made this! (She made all the dolls and critters from the last shot in two weeks!)
Great job, great skills!

Ohmigosh, adorable! I made a Sailor Moon doll for that swap too, but neither me or my partner got a good picture of her. Here's kind of a picture of Chibi Moon and Mars? Which I sold and can't take better pictures of?



And I've completed Jupiter, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto... but they all got sent to Armenia, so no pictures either.

BUT! I love this one; her skirt is ADORABLE. I went through so many trials and errors trying to make a pleated skirt... It looks like you just did a back loop only thing?? But it's very noticable, it really looks like pleats! Great job!  Smiley

Ive seen your adorable dolls in the gallery!~  Smiley

I love how you crocheted the hair, instead of using strands (like I did)

The skirt IS just a bunch of back loops!  Cheesy I noticed that Sailor Moon is drawn with the pleats always going on way, which looks kind of ribbed, and my first idea was the back loops. I guess I just got lucky lol.

OMG! You finished so many scouts! I am very envious!  Smiley Did your dolls sell well? I would love to know the height of your finished doll, and how popular they were

Thanks!

I LOVE her! Sailor Moon was my first anime so I can total appreciate where you're coming from. She's really really great. And I love the fact you have Sailor Saturn in the group photo. Saturn's always been one of my favorites but I've seen very few Saturn plushies. Maybe this will inspire me to make the Outer Senshi....hmmm Smiley
