Creator, Ariel


If you've ever dreamed of becoming a sparkly Pretty Sailor Soldier, this class will guide you through all the construction. Choose the color of Sailor you want, and you will learn to make a complete outfit including a dress, gloves, boot covers, accessories and wig styling. You will also learn to adjust your costume to your figure. After following each steps of this class, you will have ONE personalized dream costume in your hand.


This class is for someone who wishes to create a fun and magical cosplay costume. Basic knowledge of using a sewing machine or following a pattern may need before joining this class. This class includes a pattern that I created just for this class. It will also cover different body shapes and sizes.

Meet Your Creator
Hi there!
My name is Ariel. I am a costume maker from south of France. I studied fashion in Paris, then became a chief costumer in a theater. I have been making costumes for years, many historical, fantasy costumes, wedding dresses and now cosplay as well. I work as a set designer as well and try to learn and experiment with many different techniques that can be applied in garments and accessories. I have won some contests, and I am currently the french representative for the World Cosplay Summit 2021 in Japan. I love to teach other people all the knowledge, tips, tricks and anecdotes I have learnt over the years. It is a pleasure to help other in their projects, find ways to make original ideas work, and see people having fun wearing their creation.
