Gum ball (Sweet Gum tree seed) - by Dogman707

As a child,we used to have gum ball fights with these. It was like the poor kids version of paintball wars except with the gum ball.  The kids would get a handful of the dry brown ones and not the green ones. We then run across the yards throwing them at each other. If you used a green one, you would have to stand still and the rest of the kids would surround you. They would all have green ones and throw at you for punishment. So if you were ready to run for your life. You hit someone with a green one and run home. But, they will get you the next day for this. So, you just sucked it up and took your punishment then. This is one of the simple things a southern kid would do to pass the time. This was before video games.

Which of Sailor Moon's outfits is your favorite (original, super, etc)? And which of her attacks/weapons/items?

With no doubt, Princess Sailor Moon’s outfit (fuku).

Those of you who haven’t watched the live action version (totally should tbh) of Sailor Moon: Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon (aka PGSM) don’t know about this incarnation of Sailor Moon which is exclusive to PGSM.

Naoko herself was heavily involved in PGSM and Princess Sailor Moon is a creation she made exclusively for PGSM so you won’t see her anywhere else but in PGSM… well not exactly, the only other version that actually exists is this chibi manga version Naoko drew.

And that’s it.

I think her fuku looks the prettiest. It’s hard to compare a real life fuku with an anime one so let’s use these gorgeous drawings by the great Marco Albiero (I’m sure you all already know him) to compare.

I really love the new shade of blue of her skirt and collar as well as the lighter shade of pink of her frontal bow which is a good contrast to the previously mentioned navy blue skirt and collar. The new boots (the same she’s wearing in her Eternal Form) look great with the overall white look. The pearls are a nice detail (that pearled tiara and the pearls in her odangos circling the red gems in her hair are a cute touch). She’s also wearing Neo Queen Serenity’s tiara and her brooch replicates it. However, my favourite thing about this fuku is the lace details. They add a new elegant and stylish touch, the back bow looks amazing and so does the skirt with the lace underskirt underneath. A special mention to the lace details on her shoulders that look x100000000 better than the hideous pink gum balls of her Eternal fuku.

Lace details have always been a thing in Sailor Moon so I think it was about time it was included in the fuku somehow.

In my opinion, Princess Sailor Moon’s fuku looks the best.

And for as items and attacks, my favourite Sailor Moon wand/rod/etc has always been the Moon Stick.

I think it’s just too pretty lmao. I love the huge crescent moon and the maboroshi no ginzuishou placed on it.

The classic anime version is my favourite version, the manga one doesn’t look as good imo.

And talking about attacks, I’ve always loved those random physical attacks that Sailor Moon came up with out of the blue that were hilarious.

🌙 Sailor Moon Kick!

🌙 Sailor Body Attack!

Now being serious, Moon Tiara Action is my fave Sailor Moon attack because it’s simply iconic.
