By the Fans, For the Fans (And Then Some)

Hey, Moonies!

Rest assured that the report and survey results are coming very soon.  We’ve been working hard to put the all the data together for you and we’re just about finished.  In the meantime, we’ve received quite a few fan submissions this month which we’d like to share with you!

Our first one comes from a fan named Joshua.  He had this cookie cake made for his birthday!  It was based on the image below from the Sailor Moon R movie.  According to Joshua, the whole cake is like a giant chocolate chip cookie, sounds delicious!  Happy birthday, Joshua!

We also received some cosplay photos from fans!  First up is from uranusfan1.  She created her own Sailor Starlight, Sailor Star Miracle!  The first is the anime version of Sailor Star Miracle.  Second is her cosplay photo and third is a close up of her homemade Sailor Moon S brooch!

We also have another cosplayer, V~Ronnie~Rae as Sailor Moon from the first season!  We think she’s done a really neat job on the costume and we love the pose!  Great job!

This submission comes from a fan we’ve heard from before! Forum user Sailor Mini Moon sent us a picture of her homemade Mini-Moon doll back in July. Now Chibiusa has been reunited with her mother! That’s a lovely Eternal Sailor Moon doll!

In a slightly different vein, this sighting was sent in by Subzippo.  He spotted this one in DC Comics Teen Titans issue 72 from August 2009!  Bombshell accuses Miss Martian of dressing like Sailor Moon and we can definitely see why!

Our very last fan submission comes from facebook user Zack! His Sailor Moon posed was simply accompanied by “wow. i love you” Thanks, Zack! We love you and all our fans too!

Here at Moon Chase we’re always happy to show off your Sailor Moon fan works!  Just send us an email to moonchasers AT gmail DOT com and include “Fan Work” in your subject so we can notice it more quickly and a name to credit you under.  Then just sit back and we’ll show off your creation to all of our readers!

Sailor Moon Inspired Artist Scores Job With Marvel!

Emily Warren had dreams of being an illustrator. When she was young, she became intrigued by the manga artform after reading the Sailor Moon manga. To her, Usagi was the quintessential “regular girl”, terrible at school and unable to find a boyfriend. As we all know, Usagi had to learn to come out of her shy, shell when she became Sailor Moon. Like Usagi, Emily was an introvert in middle school, and is coming out of her shell when she appears at conventions with her artwork. Emily pursued her dream further, by taking commercial art classes at Jefferson City High School (which have since been discontinued) and graduating with a Bachelor’s Degree in Fine Arts from the Illinois Institute of Art in Chicago in 2007. She trained to be an animator, but she plans on being an illustrator. Emily’s friend Christina Scrain, noticed her talent and introduced her work to editors at Marvel. Soon after, she landed a job at Marvel, as a colorist for series like Big Hero Six, Secret Invasion, and the upcoming Cloak and Dagger! Emily, we salute you for all your hard work and one day we hope to see your work on the cover of a comic! Check out more of her artwork here!
