I Always Wanted to Be Sailor Moon – I’ll Be Victoria Instead

20 Comments

I’ve been really picking at heavy wounds this week in my life.  Although I believe completely in the forgiveness of others, just as Jesus has forgiven us for the wrong we have done; when I see things that have never been reconciled and where sins have been done against another, and so many have been deceived; I long for reconciliation.  I am left crying out to God over these things done ages ago. I don’t know how to breathe without His help.  My throat is left feeling dry & I tend to fight hyperventilation (which I do when overly stressed with emotion). Thankfully as a secondary help, my husband is extremely sweet to me during these times, which makes it easier by cute things he says or by trying to dance with me (I’m a sucker for dancing) and gives me kisses and gentle words.  With God’s word especially, I start to feel a bit better.  Just pray for me. Thanks.

Outfit details: [ Sailor Sweatshirt & Skirt - Modcloth  | Scarf: c/o Skip N' Whistle | Shoes: from a dance shoe place (they are tap shoes without the taps)]

This anchor scarf by the way was sent to me by Skip N’ Whistle (they had me choose a decal design & the color. So awesome. Thank you).  They make shirts, sweatshirts, bags, scarves, and tank tops.  This scarf is so comfortable and warm and very soft. I have been wearing it regularly in my own home because I just like how it feels! I thought it would go perfectly with the Modcloth sailor top (which I have been living out of too because it is so cozy).

Rachel mentioned that now that I have blonde hair I could do Sailor Moon hair, so I thought “Why not?” In case you’re wondering how I got my hair like this (and if you are new to my blog, yes, that is all my real hair), I literally used 3 bobby pins in each “odango” (I just twisted my hair into a small bun and bobby pinned taking a small section of the hair that hangs and pinned under the bun right near where the strip of hair comes out on each side of the strip of hair coming out pointing up. Then I pinned one going sideways to connect the two pins . . that’s it). I used to do it differently when I was younger (would put my hair in a knot, no bobby pins, but it didn’t look authentic like this one & fell out easily).

Although I used to have a great obsession with Sailor Moon, I like being me now. Sure I can pull off looking like her and yeah, I did marry early on and had two kids and love seeking justice, but it isn’t because of Sailor Moon, but because of my love for Jesus.  I believe He has blessed me quite a bit, though if I were not given these gifts, I would still be blessed, for life in general is an amazing blessing.  This verse is pretty much an explanation as to why we named our second son Micah.  “He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?” – Micah 6:8 [ESV].  I really want to live it out! I’d rather be a real person & a child of God, than a super hero that was created fictionally ANY day.

  1. I TOLD you! Wow – you look JUST like her! How fun! :)

    I like you being Victoria too. There’s no one like you, dear friend, and I love you very much!

    Your struggles remind me that I am due to write you an e-mail. Until I get around to it, I will be praying for you throughout the day.

  2. Wait a sec … you mean you’re not Sailor Moon in your other life?

    But I’m with Rachel. You being Victoria is perfect, and I’m praying for God’s peace and comfort for you now.

  3. Oh my gosh Victoria, what a change! I love the blonde and I think you pull off the Sailor Moon quite well :).

  4. I’ve never seen sailor moon but the pictures def does look alike! fun hair and outfit. & i find that hard too but this past year or so have really been feeling more at piece with people will receive what they deserve or need to get and they probably are holding a lot of burden knowing about their deceits.. although still always tricky. glad you have such a sweet husband to help you!

  5. ohmygosh how fun! And I love your new hair – it’s adorableeee on you. and that sweater – I almost bought it. It’s so cute on you.

  6. You look adorable! And you look just like Sailor Moon! I can’t wait to see what your hair looks like when it’s finished!! <3

  7. Oh yes, you look just like her :-) This is so beautiful Victoria. I think if I ever tried to get my hair that blond, if would have fallen out by now. I’m so curious to see the final color.

    I have such a hard time with the same thing – especially with people that have hurt my family. I don’t understand why people can act so hatefully, but that’s not for me to worry about – it’s something I really just need to give up and forgive.

  8. Cute outfit! Your hair looks exactly like sailor moon’s!

  9. I’m sorry to hear about your hardships this week. I’ve been going through similar things, and because things haven’t changed much, I feel so tired talking about them :-( I know avoiding the problem isn’t going to solve anything, but it has made me feel somewhat sane, considering things might never change. God is in control of all things though, so I don’t feel totally alone.

    Your hair is so wonderfully long <3 I can't wait to get mine to be that long. I think I might try this year. I'm still considering dying my hair again, but I'm not sure what color. Can't wait to see your final transformation!

    We share the same love with Sailor Moon. My favorite was Sailor Mars.

    • Avoiding things tend to make it worse as it can cause bitterness, which is not what I ever would want to happen.
      You certainly are not alone. Christ is with you in all things.

      Thanks so much. I plan on dying my hair the color I want come this weekend at some point if I have the time to do so. I did always like Sailor Mars, but Sailor Venus is my favorite.

  10. whoa! such a beautiful human version of Victoria! you are gorgeous!

  11. absolutely love this look and I adore that scarf.
