It's official, the Princess Serenity couture dress will cost 100,000 yen or $1,000 dollars. Making it the most expensive Sailor Moon item ever released. It better be gorgeous. :love:

There's a pic floating around. It's not bad but it needs the circle design added.

Most expensive new release but vintage can definately beat it.

I hope it's better in person else it is just a wedding dress lol

It's pretty, but I wouldn't have connected it to SM unless I was told what it's supposed to be. Honestly, yeah, it looks like an old fashioned victorian nightgown, maybe one on display in a museum.

That being said, The Princess had to sleep in something. I'll just imagine this is her sleepwear. :P

I'm not too confident the "designer" of this dress even knows what Sailor Moon is. They certainly do not know what Princess Serenity is. I don't know what that is, but it is most certainly not Princess Serenity's dress. Furthermore, I'm pretty sure going into a Good Will had this dress first.

100,000 yen does not make it the most expensive item made. I know of many cels that have sold for much, much more than this.


Ugly dress.

I agree. I would imagine that a Princess Serenity inspired dress would have a skirt which is flowing and away from the body and possibly made from an A-frame silk/satin underskirt, and an sheer organza overlay to enhance the flow, with either pearl or beaded accents at the waist, and a satin bodice that is laced up in back, or left solid, I can't decide, and off the shoulder, short silk/satin sleeves.

I took the liberty of designing what I think would be an ideal Princess Serenity inspired dress from an already existing wedding dress maker.

I just found this dress by dior, which apparently inspired Naoko for the dress. I don't know about you guys but to me this is a little more couture than that nightgown. http://moonie-trivia.tumblr.com/post/59026724539/theolddictionary-the-dress-is-christian-dior

The dress above by Dior, is couture, whereas the Princess Serenity one that looks like a Victorian nightgown is not.

Quote:
... the term haute couture is protected by law in France and is defined by the Paris Chamber of Commerce (Chambre de commerce et d'industrie de Paris). To earn the right to call itself a couture house and to use the term haute couture in its advertising and any other way, a fashion house must follow these rules:

[*]Design made-to-order for private clients, with one or more fittings.
[*]Have a workshop (atelier) in Paris that employs at least fifteen people full-time.
[*]Each season (i.e. twice a year) present a collection to the Paris press, comprising at least thirty-five runs/exits with outfits for both daytime wear and evening wear.

Exactly why I said that looks more couture. Both dresses are stated to be couture... I know the Dior dress is a true couture dress. As it's one of a kind and wasn't sold in stores.

You don't need to bash a person's every single word. People do make jokes.

I could see it going easily for more than what my house cost me.

Hmm, I don't like artificial clothing materials, especially in such costumes. :confused:

I actually bought this dress for my wife.

She's not a fan and thought I was crazy.

I told her it was a present for her... for me.
