So You Want to Be a Meatball Head? Odangos Made Easy!

You're a Sailor Moon fan, and you've always wanted to wear your hair like Usagi's but you're not quite sure how to make it work. There are several ways to pull it off actually, but the following tutorial is the easiest way I know.

I will say to start off that the longer and thicker your hair is the better the results will be. To wear odangos you're hair should reach mid way down your shoulder blades at a minimum. It is possible to do with shoulder length hair, but it doesn't leave much of a pony tail. When I use to wear my hair like this regularly, it was grown out well past my waist.

Items you will need:
  • a hair brush
  • a comb
  • 4 hair bands (size will depend on the thickness of your hair. Thin or normal hair i suggest using small bands. For thick hair use medium or full sized bands.) If you can match the color of the bands to your hair or use clear ones.
  • a mirror so you can see what you're doing (unless you're doing someone's hair, then it'd just so they can see ^_^ )

Mars Power, Make Up!

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays of the year. But I'm not the type to wait until October to start planning my costume. No, being a cos-player it's open season year round for costume fodder. The cheaper the cost the better, so out of season is prime hunting time.

I recently I was made aware of an awesome sale through BuyCostumes.com. Being the Sailor Moon fan I am I couldn't pass up this Deluxe Sailor Mars costume, normally $80, for a mere $10. Compared to the cheaper versions of the Sailor Moon costumes the deluxe seemed like it would pass my nit-picking cos-play ways.
