An Unbreakable Sailor Bond

Video Cosplay Sailor Moon

The documentary In the Name of the Moon follows the LaSoldier cosplay team, which was formed by a group of like-minded college friends whose original goal was to dress up as the Sailor Senshi for the 2010 iteration of Maryland-located anime convention Katsucon.

For a quality finished product, even individual cosplay requires a sizeable time investment and emotional commitment. So multiply that by the large number of characters in Sailor Moon’s core cast, and the result is feelings and friendships as strong as the anime heroines’ magical powers.

While the preview ends with an expressed release date of Fall 2013, In the Name of the Moon has been much more recently added to video streaming site Vimeo, and if you’re interested in checking out the rest of LaSoldier’s story, the documentary can be rented or purchased here.
