5 Ways To Make Sailor Moon Cosplay Star Wand and Crescent Wand

Here I’ve collected several ways to make a Sailor Moon cosplay wand, you may find one that you like.

Method One

Color printing: This is the most direct and simple way which is completely suitable for people who are not very good at handwork. You only need to print the accessories on the right parts of the following pictures by color printing. Cut each part of the wand and stick them together. A sailor moon wand made of paper is finished.

Advantage: simple, easy and quick.

Disadvantage: not very stereoscopic and vivid.

Method Two

If you would like to make a wand more stereoscopic than color printing, you can use 3D paper to make the wand. Of course it will be a little more difficult than the first method.

(1). Make a star as the following process by 3D paper, and draw the color and patterns as in Sailor Moon with paints.

(2). Roll a 3D paper to the shape of a cylinder as the bar of the wand and draw the color and patterns.

(3). Stick each part together with super glue.

Method Three

Use polymer clay and wood to make the wand. By this method you can make a completely stereoscopic wand.

Materials: (a). Part of Wood: a cylindrical wood, 4 wood balls (including one biggest, one smaller and two smallest balls), 2 heart-shaped wood (one of which is a bit smaller than the other one). (b). Part of Clay: a small bottle of polymer clay. (c). A utility knife. (d). A pair of disposable gloves. (e). Super glue.

Process: (1). Use the utility knife to cut the clay into the shape of a star, curve a smaller star along its edge. (2). Knead 5 tiny balls on the top of the 5 angles. The sixth angle is excluded because it will be jointed to the main part of the wand. (3). Poke holes at the positions shown in the above right picture. The size of the holes must fit the dowels. (4). Apply super glue on the dowels and insert the dowels into the holes to joint each part together. After the clay become dry, the wand is finished. Of course you can color it as in Sailor Moon.

Method Four (Adapted from the article by Jellybean)

If you are quite good at handwork, the following steps of making a Sailor Moon’s crescent wand may be used as a reference. This way is more vivid and complex than the three methods mentioned above.

Materials:

Disposable plastic gloves

Piece of thin card as a template for the crescent moon shape

1x 500g pk of Air Dry Modeling Clay

Bowl of lukewarm water

Hot Glue Gun

1x tube of Iridescent Medium

1x tube of Acrylic Paint (Pink)

1x tube of Acrylic Paint (Metallic Gold)

Small Red Gems

Method Five (Adapted from the article by onesky-1destiny)

This is to make the extended version of Sailor Moon’s Moon Stick as seen in the first arc of the manga. You can use this tutorial to make the traditional hand sized Moon Stick by using shorter/thinner PVC and making slightly different details.

Materials:
a. (3-4) 2oz packs yellow polymer clay (I’m using crastsmart brand from Michaels)
b. (1-2) 2oz packs white polymer clay
c. (1) small bottle pink acrylic paint (I’m using Apple Barrel in Bright Magenta 20591)
d. (1) small bottle yellow acrylic paint (I’m using Apple Barrel in Yellow 20502)
e. (1) small bottle pearly white acrylic paint (I’m using FolkArt in Metallic Pearl White 659)
f. (1) can pink spray paint (I’m using Krylon in Watermelon) (OPTIONAL way of painting)
g. (5-6) feet of 3/4″ in PVC pipe, cut into two sections (I’m 5’4″ and I’m using about 66″, or 5’6″ worth of pipe)
h. (1) 3/4″ PVC pipe coupling (used to connect the two pieces)
i. (2) 3/4″ PVC end caps
j. (1) 30mm or 40mm faceted crystal sphere (I buy mine here: [link])
size is up to you, 30mm is a bit bigger than a quarter I use this size for the regular size Moon Stick, and 40mm is about the size of a golf ball which I use for the tall Moon Stick

Couple Cosplay – Are you willing to be my master?

Under this contract, you are no longer a passer-by to me but the most important person in my life. Of the multifarious contract relationships in animes, some are touching, some are funny. Do you want to be a master or a servent? Here’re some couple cosplay ideas for you and your friend.
Ciel Phantomhive and Sebastian Michaelis from Black Butler

Sebastian Michaelis, Ciel Phantomhive Cosplay

Cosplayer LALAax
Attack from human makes no effect to him. He is Sebastian, who is a devil and only takes orders from his master Ciel before Ciel reaches his own purpose of revenge. After Ciel’s revenge done, he must give his soul to Sebastian. IOW, his soul will forever belong to the black butler Sebastian.

Contract Mark: a magic matrix on Sebastian’s left hand and Ciel’s blinder on his right eye.

Kuroshitsuji - Ciel & Sebastian

Louise Valliere and Hiraga Saito from The Familiar of Zero

Louise & Saito Hiraga from The Familiar of Zero
I unexpectedly become a pet (no, a magic)!?
The girl Louise, a magic school’s second grade student, had summoned Hiraga as the magic who would serve her. Louise asked Hiraga to sign a contract with her.
Strange words emerged from the back of his hand and he became the exclusive magic to Louise. He had no way but to live with Louise and to find out the ways to go back to his original world.

Rin Tohsaka and Archer from Fate Stay Night

Rin Tohsaka and Archer

Cosplayer 間桐君棘

Rin Tohsaka is one of the three main heroines of Fate/stay night who acts as the Master of Archer in the Fifth Holy Grail War. She’s got the command spell on her right hand.
Mirotic of Rin when summoning Archer:
Announcement!
Your soul belongs to me. Your fate gives you the sword.
Conform to the Holy Grail to response and make an oath. You are the one who achieve all the benevolence. You are the one who transmit all the sins.

C.C and Lelouch from Code Geass

C.C and Lelouch from Code Geass

Cosplayer 沐晓
C.C and Lelouch make a contract about energy grant, which means that C.C must grant the energy of Geass to Lelouch to help him reach his purpose. In return, he must help C.C complete one thing.
About the energy: Lelouch’s Geass manifests itself as “the power of absolute obedience,” which allows him to plant commands within a person’s mind upon direct eye contact. He is granted this ability through his contract with C.C.

The contract mark in on C.C’s forehead and in Lelouch’s eyes.
