Girls Meets World’s Rowan Blanchard dressed as Sailor Moon for Halloween

Rowan Blanchard dressed as Sailor Moon for Halloween

Every Halloween we see people dressing up as our favourite Sailor Moon characters to celebrate and this year was no different. This included Rowan Blanchard, who plays Riley Matthews in the Girl Meets World TV series. She dressed up as Sailor Moon last week! Her costume included makeup to make it look like she had massive anime eyes. A photo of her in costume was posted to her Instagram account along with some lyrics from the English Sailor Moon theme song.

I know I’m a bit late to be posting about Halloween but I don’t exactly have my finger on the pulse of every Disney Channel series out there. If you’re on Instagram don’t forget to follow the sailormoonnews account. Did any of you dress up as Sailor Moon characters for Halloween? Let us know in the comments!

Universes collided last night as Emily Bett Rickards, who plays the Arrow’s tech savvy lover Felicity Smoak in the CW’s Arrow, donned a Sailor Moon costume for a Halloween party. Complicating things further we have a photo of DC Universe character Felicity Smoak dressed as Sailor Moon posing next to Chloe Bennet who plays Skye aka Daisy aka Quake in Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.. Was this crossover authorized?

Oh yes, and Colton Haynes, who played Roy the Red Arrow in the series, was dressed as Ursula from The Little Mermaid.

Who knew Emily Bett Rickards was a Sailor Moon fan? People who were paying attention did! About 2 years ago she posted a clip to Instagram showing that she was watching Sailor Moon “Thursday from now on ever”. I am unable to verify if she carried through with this promise!

Sailor Moon cosplay for Halloween

Sailor Mars and Tuxedo Mask

It’s Halloween weekend and this year I put together a Tuxedo Mask costume modelled after his new costume from Sailor Moon Crystal while my girlfriend dressed up as Sailor Mars. The Tuxedo Mask costume is mostly made from scratch and with modified second hand clothing though a normal suit is used as the base. The Sailor Mars costume is pre made though some modifications were done to make it reflect Sailor Moon Crystal designs. If you made a costume of a Sailor Moon character for this year’s Halloween let us know about it in the comments on the blog, Facebook, Twitter or Tumblr.

Adam as Tuxedo Mask

While I realize the coupling of Sailor Mars and Tuxedo Mask is not canon in Sailor Moon Crystal this relationship is legit in the first season of the original Sailor Moon anime prior to Sailor Moon stealing Tuxedo Mask from Sailor Mars due to pesky destiny. I’ll never stop shipping these two.
