The model wearing these four items is AKB48 star Haruna Kojima. AKB48 is a Japanese pop band comprised of 48 members. She has been a member since the beginning. The outfits worn in the photos are the Saior Moon lingerie, the Princess Serenity dress, the Black Lady dress and Usagi’s school uniform.
This round isn’t all about lingerie! Bandai is also offering some costume style dresses of some of the Sailor Guardians’ civilian school uniforms as well as dresses for Princess Serenity and Black Lady. Go to school dressed up as Usagi, Ami, Rei, Makoto or Minako. The school uniforms are 5,378 yen (about $50 US). If you’re really rich the Princess Serenity dress is 14,018 (about $130 US) though at a slightly more affordable 9,698 (about $90) you might be able to convince your father to buy you the Black Lady dress.
Pre-orders from Premium Bandai begin September 19th.
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.
