Allow us to explain.

It Came From Outer Space

These Sailor Moon Costume Redesigns Are Out Of This Universe


Sailor Moon and company have a pretty distinctive look that hasn’t really changed all that much through the years. Perhaps that’s why Abraham Cruz, aka PandaRojo07 on DeviantArt, took it upon himself to reinterpret the group’s classic outfits. Check out Sailor Saturn, Venus, Jupiter and more! 

Sailor Mercury

Sailor Venus

Sailor Moon

Sailor Mars

Sailor Saturn

Sailor Jupiter (my favorite)

Sailor Uranus

Sailor Neptune

Sailor Pluto

Cruz has done a few more designs, which you can find on his DevianArt page but I had to share this one with you too. It’s ChibiMoon!

Which is your favorite? And do you think it’s about time the ladies got the redesign treatment for real?

    Hmm, those were really interesting interpretations! It’s nice to see a totally out-of-left-field redesign to one of my favorite series of all time.

  • http://www.facebook.com/joshuapaulhawkins Joshua Paul Hawkins

    Sailor Moon should make a comeback. Live action! LET’S GET IT DONE!

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000363934871 Brooke Stenz

    i absolutely love sailor moon…the original design…nothing beats the original. its nice to see another interpretation but its what we all grew up on, the poppy ditzy moon princess that always wanted to eat and hated homework. BRING SAILOR MOON BACK!!!!!!! girls for gaming!

  • Adam Whitley

    Sailor Jupiter does look pretty awesome it would be sweet to see this series modernized.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_R6ODYVHCB23JAQC33NPS5RLUN4 Kifre

    I’m loving everything except the GIANT WAIST BOWS. O-o

    On the other hand…hi Sailor Uranus.  You are fierceness :D

  • Terence Ng

    It did. Google Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon.

  • Frodo Baggins

    That looks like a show I would consider watching.

    They look like ballerina airplane stewardesses :

    What we need is for Funimation to re-dub all 200 episodes and do it *right* this time.

  • http://twitter.com/antiavenger Mike Perry

    Sorry but not diggin’ these. I like Sailor Moon a bit but these look like they belong in an Absolut Vodka commercial.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1232957605 Leah Nardo

    …Utena Gothic Lolita?

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000500177841 Rachel Banzhaf

    Not digging those jackets at all! Any redesign Sailor Moon gets should head further in the frilly direction, not the uniform direction. They look like a military force and that ruins it for me.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Ryan-Quavey-Havers/1593505278 Ryan ‘Quavey’ Havers

    Jupiter and Chibi-Usa are my favourites. :D

    But of course, Usagi is always bloody awesome. 

  • Terence Ng

    I agree with your sentiment. I don’t like these redesigns. I don’t get where they’re coming from. But as a quibbling point, they ARE soldiers (“senshi”) and they ARE wearing a variation on sailor uniforms, which are military.

    I wouldn’t go frilly, but I would play a bit more on the sailor aspect.

    These, I dunno. They seem to be reaching for the level of those haute couture works of superheros, but while those were brilliantly abstract to fashion, these are a bit too literally to be taken that way.

  • Anonymous

    Gothic Victorian Utena Harajuku 1980s Madonna style.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Steve-Day/1312183593 Steve Day

    These are terrible.
     

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_QZTQORZOGI4B6DQOTEJPF6RROE K@

    They are interesting but it doesn’t really feel like it fits in the spirit of the show. They are like prudish lady gaga knock offs. The girls are in desperate need of a revamp so a new generation of girls can get into the series!

  • http://www.facebook.com/Gorillazfan Emily Hill

    What is this steam punk I mean last I checked the senshi were from the eighties or 21st century if we have to be modern

  • http://www.facebook.com/Gorillazfan Emily Hill

     I agree I mean they did awesome on one piece and we all know what it was like before Funimation got it (shudders) Not to mention we can actually have the parts and eps they cut and not have Uranus and Neptune as Incestial cousins (shudders again)

  • http://www.facebook.com/foxberry.studios Koke Momo

    Personally I think they’re rather horrendous. As someone said below, I’m reminded too much of Lady Gaga and high fashion. Sorry. Just don’t like them. They don’t need redesign.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Dessa-Brewington/721495970 Dessa Brewington

    These are great.

  • Rose Larsen

    I completely loathe these.

    I love Sailor Moon and all but these are hideous.  Yes Sailor Moon probably needs to be brought back to join Dragonball Z again but not like this.

  • Anonymous

    NOT liking the redesign at all. Sorry. The original will always be better. 

    And I’d love for Sailor Moon and her scouts to come back, in original form, to American television and/or english dubbed tv to dvd. First fell in love with Sailor Moon in 1998! ♥

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100001028762424 Candice Fralix

    they don’t need to be changed!!!  the costumes have been this way for yrs cause it works!!

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=503129947 Susanne Kraus-Dahlgren

    Not big into Sailor Moon, but even I can’t stomach these “redesigns”. Seriously. It looked like some third-rate Capitol fashion designers tried to steal ideas from Lady Gaga to profit off making some Opening Ceremony outfits for the Quarter Quell.

  • http://twitter.com/La_Beach Leslie Beach

    no way!  

  • Lina

    It’s like a mating between Utena and Sailor Moon. 

    I like the cohesion between the costumes inner senshi and the outer senshi. Not much else, especially not the character redesigns.

    NOPE

     These are interesting but Sailor Moon is a classic. Her and the rest of
    the girls should be left as is… No revamping needed :) Besides you can’t beat a classic ;)

  • Ken

    I guess I’m one of the few who actually really likes these! Granted, they don’t fit the show at all, but I love them as alternate interpretations of the original. I think they’re very well done.

  • Sailor Nature

    Bad Costumes!!!! These look totally freakish and disgusting!!!! Original costumes are way better!!!! Sailor Moon rocks!!!!

  • Sailor Nature

    Big Fan of Sailor Moon for 17 years! I would really love to see Sailor Moon back in the United States! Especially the Final Season (Sailor Stars) – this time in English Dub!!!! No need to revamp the characters – classic is best and has worked all this time!

    The 1980s belong to the 20th century, not the 21st.

  • http://www.facebook.com/lalitha.cruz Lalitha Cruz

    I like the Sailor Saturn costume

  • http://twitter.com/CuriousArtemis Bridget

    Love these! Half-steampunk (which I dig) half gothic lolita. Favorites are Sailor Moon and Sailor Saturn.

  • http://www.facebook.com/william.c.moore.33 William Clint Moore

    Ya sorry not interested at all. Complete tripe on almost all of them.

  • http://www.facebook.com/artiepartieshardie Arturo Rodriguez

    I think these are very interesting designs and sparks originality and creativity. I especially love Sailor Jupiter and the outer senshi. It’s dark, slightly punk, and slight arrogance of the victorian age. It would be an interesting contrast to the current look of the sailor senshi if there were to be an animation of it. Anyways, great job!

  • Karie

    Well, I like them. But I defer to the no doubt superior fashion sense of all the previous posters – I never claimed to know anything about style. They obviously suck.
    FWIW, Mars is my fav.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Tony-Quatermass/1260000946 Tony Quatermass

    Other than the Sailor Saturn one, I don’t really dig these. Jupiter has a good pose. Artistically, these are good. I sure wouldn’t want to see them used for any version of the show though.

  • http://twitter.com/colibri_moko Petit Colibri

    The should stick to the classic japanese school uniform design. But out of all of them, I like Sailor Uranus’ design the most. Probably because of the sneakers. But then again, all the designs remind me of something they would do if there was a reboot of Gem

  • http://twitter.com/nonikell nicole kellett

    I agree, nice art, creative; but I wouldn’t want to see this as a re-boot design.

  • http://www.facebook.com/marion.yelle Marion Yelle

    I really don’t understand where all the hate is coming from. (Okay, maybe I do, the classic designs are near and dear to your hearts, but come on.) I love these. The coats really bring in a military, Navy, feel, which really highlights that they’re soldiers. I’m not a fan of Sailor Moon’s outfit necessarily, but the rest of these are gorgeous! They’re wonderful interpretations of what a high-fashion, modern Sailor Moon cast would look like. Bravo!

  • http://twitter.com/pixieodeath Rossi

    Sorry to be _that_ person, but considering she’s your favourite Sailor Senshi, it’s spelt Jupiter, not Jupitor.

  • Tiffany

    I need Sailor Saturn’s outfit, STAT.

  • http://www.facebook.com/miranda.fuller.52 Miranda Fuller

    These are horrible. How dare you ruin my childhood.

  • Constance

    This “redesign” is no different from their original sexed up outfits.

  • Penny Sautereau-Fife

    Saturn is rocking sexy butch ass. The rest are horrible.

  • wolfy

    these oufits look horrible and ugly who would to see these clothes then the origanal look at themthey look like the drunk version of sailormoon uck i wouldnt want to them on the tv show with these >.<

  • wolfy

    i hate these they are horribly ugly these dont look like sailor warriors they look like sailor drunkereds in lady gaga stayl BLAH I HATE THESE STUPID CLOTHES PRAISE MY CHILDHOOD TV SHOW

  • http://www.facebook.com/aaron.steimle.9 Aaron V Steimle

    Niiice variations. Kind of pulls away from the standard sailor concept, but could make for less of a standard superhero anime and more of an avant-garde sci-fi show. Could be fun!

  • http://twitter.com/NanaBeth18 Adriana Villaseñor

    Sailor Moon is the only one who doesn’t look like her self. Either keep her original hair style or at least make her hair long. I like some of these but at the same time I don’t. Keep them as FAN ART only, nothing more.

  • http://www.facebook.com/katie.l.berger Katie Berger Tremaine

    Ami-chan doesn’t really look like herself either – she looks too robotic and cold. Hiding her eyes doesn’t really help, either.

  • http://twitter.com/elbookwyrm Vanessa

    Like ‘em… but the fluffy ribbon in the front puts me off. If I were a Sailor soldier/senshi/whatever I’d rip it off.

  • Enzy

    These are nice but I would be pretty upset if these were ever a Sailor Moon redesign. It just…doesn’t look Sailor Moon.

  • Stephanie

    Yup, I think these are absolutely horrible. If anything these look like costume for Lady GaGa.

  • https://www.facebook.com/Not.fair.still.lovely KissOfDanger

    Pluto needs to darker.

    I fail to see how pea-coats and tutus have anything to do with Sailor Scouts. Madonna Scouts, maybe.

    You have got to be kidding me I think we all agree that if those costume designs go through the anime will fail

  • http://twitter.com/aallinyte robyn

    … I’m sorry, “Jupitor”?

  • Nicole Burgin

    I don’t understand the hate, I actually really, really like these. I think the art itself is gorgeous and I like the emphasis on having it be a bit of a more sophisticated look. Very nice. I’d wear the heck out of some of these and would love to see a show with people wearing them!

  • http://www.facebook.com/raiden.chan Joy Gutgsell

    i love these! I am scrolling down through some comments seeing dislike but who cares? I would love this because to me school girl uniforms i do like them and all seem somewhat pervy to me

    Is it bad that I thought of SNSD’s Jessica the moment I saw “sailor Uranus?” Awkward

  • Bean

    Congratulations to the artist on finding a variation of the Sailor Moon outfits even LESS suited for combat.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=10047306 Toni Jones

    Wow. There are some harsh Sailor Moon fans out there. :S I love when artists re-design the Sailor Moon outfits (and mess with the characters appearances too). These are awesome and beautifully done. Jupiter & Uranus totally my faves here.

  • http://twitter.com/myjikan justin minus

    The problem with these, is so obvious. I’ll pose a question. Which one of these looks the most Japanese? Yeah that’s right none of them, look japanese. The solution to this simple. The artist needs to travel to japan. Study the fashion over there for a year or more. Watch at least half of the damn show. And then go back to the ol’ drawing board. These are worst than the designs, the fashion industry steals from anime and try to redesign half heartly.

  • http://www.facebook.com/marilynxmonster Audrey Walker

    Sailor Saturn makes me think of a lady version of Magus. I like it, but I’m not into the rest.

  • http://twitter.com/designercsa Chelsea Arnold

    Jupiter and Saturn aren’t bad… Uranus is ok. I could grow to like Venus… the rest just look awful. Pluto looks like a drag queen and ChibiUsa is just…. oye….

  • http://twitter.com/boyofrevolution Hugo Reyes

    Not a big fan of the designs, although Sailor Venus’s look reminds me of Mami from Madoka Magica.

  • http://www.facebook.com/sarah.forde Sarah Forde

    I love the graphics and designs but…

    Naa… too much ‘flat stomach/boyish figure’ for me. I’d love to see a style that shows a wider natural range of body shapes. Women aren’t cut out of the same pattern, after all.

  • Anonymous

    I love it! I hope to see someone cosplay these. He did a good job of keeping key elements and translating them into new looks.

  • Anonymous

    For the sake of art, changing is great. I’m not sure if Abraham or Jill wants it to be the look of the reboot, but I for one welcome crossovers, interpretations, and any other sort of fanart that deviates from the original. I never understood fanart that doesn’t change or add anything. You might as well look at an official print. It’s great when people change the setting, try to make them look realistic, etc.

  • Anonymous

    You might as well copy and paste the original fifty times, but where would that leave fanartists? It’s boring to see fanart that looks exactly like the official images.

  • http://www.facebook.com/mynameishui Stella Hui

    The Chibi Moon costume is ADORABLE. I also dig Sailor Pluto’s look. But the costume redesign the Inner Seishi doesn’t quite fit… I mean, their whole deal is based on sailor fuku. I’m always glad to see great fanart (and these are excellent) but from the waist up, their costumes are too reminiscent of Utena. (Or was that the intent?)

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100002107923279 Juliana Tenenbaum

    These are excellent costumes and beautiful fashion pieces, but as for using them in a Sailor Moon revamp, I think that’s a no go. The problem is that these are actually too vogue and fashionable. One of the things I loved about Sailor Moon as a little girl (Jupiter and Uranus were my favorite, ’cause girl power!) was how flashy and overdone the costumes were- glitter, overdone hair, tiaras- they got to dressed up like princesses and kick but!

    The costumes do need a revamp and these are gorgeous interpretations but I don’t think they’d appeal to Sailor Moon’s target audience.

  • http://www.facebook.com/joshuapaulhawkins Joshua Paul Hawkins

    How about something that’s not made for special people or 5 year olds?

  • http://twitter.com/ChasFemGeek Intro to Geek

    I really dig Jupiter’s look

  • Constance

    I don’t think it’s much of a stretch to go from jail-bait outfits to burlesque.

  • MeatyStakes

    Not really liking the colorful frills with the militaristic dark jackets of the inner senshi, but the outer Senshi designs are really cool.

  • Becky Garbrick

    I want to cosplay these so hard. Especially Saturn.

  • Anonymous

    I kinda like them. They look like they should be titled, “Tim Burton’s Sailor Moon”.

  • Jaden Levi

    HORRIBLE!

  • E.V. Emmons

    They’re…interesting. But no way, do I want our dear sailors dressed in these things. I don’t care for them at all for the sailors. On new original characters, sure why not, but not for Sailormoon.

  • Deanna Albert

    I love this by itself but I wouldn’t want it for the new Sailor Moon. Gotta say, I love the fact that the inner costumes and outer costumes are so different. It makes it feel more like a uniform with different rankings, to me, for some reason. But I’m sorry, artist dude, you lose points with me for putting Usagi and Chibi-Usa’s hair down, and not having it in odangos.

  • aerethel

    I think they’re quite beautiful, especially the outers and Mercury, but the one of Sailor Moon herself bothers me. I think her hair was a very big part of her character and to change it to such an extreme makes it seem like it’s not really her.

    I am very interested to see if the new series attempts a reinterpretation of the character’s appearances, but I’m hopeful they’ll stay true to the manga. But to be honest I’d be grateful for any images of them at this point. haha
