One of the Witches 5 of Sailor Moon, Viluy is a cold hearted and pompous computer programmer and brilliant creator of nanorobotics. As Yui Bidou Viluy reached the top of her class and became a teacher at the Infinity Academy. As part of Professor Tomoe Death Busters Viluy created nanoweapons which eventually resulted in her own untimely demise. Viluy was always one of my favourite Sailor Moon villains, though I have to admit I find her outfit rather.. odd.
This costume was made for and debut on the Saturday of the 2008 March Toronto Anime Convention to go along with a group of the other Death Busters. Primarily made in a night, this costumes quality is less then great. All of the little triangles are 1.5mm ribbon stitched down. The boots were originally above the knee brown suede with fur trim that ran down either side that were ripped apart and then stitched back together and painted. Absolutely everything is this costume was made by me, except the wig which was literally just pulled out of the bag and put on.
This costume was only worn once but is a costume I would like to attempt again at some point, and hopefully figure out some better tactics for making it look... less ridiculous.
