In Act 30 of the manga and Episode 111 of the anime, Sailor Moon obtains the Holy Grail and becomes Super Sailor Moon with significantly stronger powers. At first, she is unable to take this form without the Grail, and is weakened when the effects fade. Near the end of Sailor Moon S, she changed to Super Sailor Moon out of pure desperation and the power of the other Senshi after the Grail was destroyed. It was some time later that she is able to transform without the Grail thanks to Pegasus’ power.
Cute cosplay from such a classic series! As usual, MPzero caught an amazing shot. Thanks again to Lily for sending this in!
