Today, December 20th 2013, this great looking “Sailor Senshi” shirt will be on sale for $10 at ShirtPunch. The shirt shows silhouettes of Sailor Mercury, Mars, Moon, Jupiter and Venus in front of the Moon. The symbols below that image represent Mercury, Mars, the Moon, Jupiter and Venus, but without parts of them being modified into hearts which is typical of these symbols when seen in Sailor Moon.

Following Tuesday’s post about official Sailor Moon lingerie we now have this ad from Peach John which features models wearing the clothes. For details on these items do check out the original post on the topic.
This lingerie bears a striking resemblence to SciFeyeCandy’s sexy cosplay items. I saw these at Unplugged Expo and when I first saw these new lingerie items as the similarity was immediately obvious. Some people are suggesting the designs are inspired by these though it’s impossible to tell if this is the case or if the similarity is a mere coincidence.
Peach John, a mail order lingerie company in Japan, is producing a line of official Sailor Moon panties, bras and pyjamas including costume lingerie! Yes that’s right, these are official Sailor Moon products that are currently advertised on the official Sailor Moon site. Pre-orders are now open and run until December 25th. The items will be released in February. They can be ordered through Bandai’s site.
The costume lingerie (bra set) items are certain to be a popular items. You can cosplay as Sailor Moon, Mercury, Mars, Venus or Jupiter in these less than completely show accurate outfits who’s designs are partly inspired by the original costumes with Sailor Moon’s original transformation broach appearing on her bra but with stars appearing on most chokers which is consistent with costumes from the SuperS series. The sets come with a bra and panty piece as well as a ribbon choker. These would hardly be functional under most clothing as the bows and other awkward parts would be quite cumbersome. I’m sure fans can find an appropriate time to wear such things. Each set costs 4980 yen, about $48.50 US.
Bandai and Volks will be releasing a Sailor Mercury Figuarts ZERO figure and have unveiled a prototype. This prototype isn’t painted but we can get a basic idea of what the figure will look like when it’s eventually released. No specifics have been given but based on what we already know about the Sailor Moon Figuarts ZERO figure which is set to be released in March it is a 1/8 scale figure, likely measuring roughly 22cm or 8.5″ in height and costing about 8,800 yen, some $91 US dollars. This figure will not be posable. With Mercury now revealed it stands to reason that we will be getting Sailor Mars, Jupiter and Venus Figuarts ZERO figures in time as well.
Today, December 1st, this great looking Princess Moononoke shirt featuring Sailor Moon as San and Luna as the Wolf Moro from Hayao Miyazaki’s Princess Mononoke will be for sale at Shirt Punch for $10.
