The Tough Women (And Bearded Lady) Of Sailor Moon

A generation of Japanese girls (and, yes, boys) grew up watching the original Sailor Moon anime and reading the manga. No wonder Sailor Moon has become so iconic. No wonder people love dressing up as the characters.

What made Sailor Moon so revolutionary when it debuted in the early 1990s is that it reworked both the magical girl genre and super sentai (Power Rangers) genre in new and exciting ways. The Sailor Moon characters were tougher then other magical girls and used their magical powers to fight evil and save Earth.

Here is a collection of some — not all — of the best Sailor Moon cosplay the internet offers, showing off the character’s trademark sailor suits, footwear, headbands, wands, and beards.

So, who pulled off the best Sailor Moon cosplay? Decide as you patiently wait for the new anime, slated for mid 2013 in Japan. (Cosplay, Culture, Sailor Moon)
