05-07-2008, 09:15 PM
^-^ Recently I went to a costume party that my youth group was hosting and I wasn't sure what to dress up as. So my BF asked if i would do Pi-chu and he did pikachu which i think looked very cool on him. This isn't the point though, I was a pi-chu hopefully i will be able to cosplay as my favorite Pokemon Jiggly puff.

So how many of you cos played as Pokemon Characters?

*raises hand* I'm Suicune X3 It's so much fun to wear, however...I can get overheated really quick.

Hopefully, I'll have a Lucario either later this year or early next year X3

My plan is to cosplay Kaede, the allergic Rocket from How I Became A Pokemon Card.

...but my DREAM costume, the one I'll have to lose a bunch of weight for, is Jirarudan the Collector from the second movie. And someone already beat me to the punch, but she didn't have the hair. And he's got rather distinctive hair. Plus I have a Lugia plush I can carry around with me.

I'm working on finishing a mascot style, 4 legged ivysaur for fanime.
I've already finished Blaziken as well though I do want to revisit him and make improvements.

Is this a general Pokémon costume discussion? I have been wondering when one would pop up what with all the Gijinka discussion. I wouldn't mind trying Gijinka because some of the designs are really adorable but I'm more of a trainer cosplayer and I'm planning on doing a lot of trainer costumes in the next two years. I'm bringing Leaf, Kris, and Dawn with me to Anime Nebraskon this year and Erika, Bugsy, and Roark to the same convention next year. I'm hoping that my friend does decide to cosplay as Sabrina this year so that we can have a mock gym battle. :3

I'm really excited about these costumes because Pokémon was my childhood obsession and it's so much fun to be getting back into it again. It'll be like second childhood preparing these costumes because I seriously want to go out and buy the toys and plush dolls as accessories. I also am happy that these costumes won't give me much grief because they're relatively simply, everday clothes, and I won't even have to get a wig this year except for Crystal (I have dark brown hair, and since I'm going by the games, I can get away with it for Dawn).

I couldn't do a Pokemon persay... but I am attempting PKMN Trainer Red/Green from FireRed/LeafGreen

05-09-2008, 12:24 AM
I've only done Meowth so far. It wasn't a full fursuit only the head tail and paws never did the body.

I want to do but will probably never get to: Eevee's evolutions, Shiny Umbreon, Shinx, Sandshrew, Houndour or Houndoom, Pikachu, Growlithe or Arcanine, Vulpix or Ninetails, Nidoran or Nidorino, Abra, Charmeleon, Cubone, Bayleef, Quilava, and Dragonite or Charizard. ack there's so many I would like to do. I'm still learning how to make fursuits. I probably will do Shiny Umbreon.

05-09-2008, 03:11 AM
^_^ thats all awesome i know a friend who has done a pikachu cosplay she did a good job.

05-09-2008, 05:51 AM
Well, I've been both Jessie and James from team Rocket, so that counts, right?

05-09-2008, 09:42 AM
In a couple weeks, I'm gonna be starting on Riley from the Diamond & Pearl games. I love his air of elegance, and especially the character design and outfit.

05-09-2008, 01:26 PM
I think she was referring to the actual Pokemon, rather than the characters. There are many other threads on characters anyhow. And we already have a Gijinka thread, just need to search in the back pages.

As for cosplaying Pokemon though, yes, I've done it. Ninetales to be exact. You can see it in my gallery..
I'm planning to do Lucario next. Like the one in my avi.

05-09-2008, 05:03 PM
^^ Yep i meant the actual pokemon last otakon i saw a few mudkips and a meowith.

05-09-2008, 08:06 PM
I'm working on cosplaying as Dawn =] I'm planning on finishing it some time during the summer when I have more time.

05-10-2008, 01:58 AM
I have no clue who dawn is lol.. i would have to say i like the orginal pokemon series.

05-10-2008, 02:34 AM
I think I still have my old Misty cosplay in a drawer somwhere... But alas... Im no longer redhaired nor able to put my hair in a decent ponytail... Xp

However my Masq buddy Ryuu has a cute pikachu, but Iv only seen pictures.

05-10-2008, 02:38 AM
Working on Lucario right now...

05-10-2008, 08:27 AM
Did Blaziken, almost done fixing up Mewtwo, and starting Lucario when I'm done with that.

05-11-2008, 11:48 PM
Mewtwo is awesome !!

Art is a BANG
05-16-2008, 09:34 PM
I disagree mew is awesome i was that yellow rat that keeps on trying to kill his trainer with lightning when i was 4 for halloween

05-25-2008, 05:38 AM
I'm piecing together a Dawn/Hikari costume right now! I fell in love with the Pokemon: Diamond and Pearl games, and when I saw her on the actual show, I loved her even more! ^.^
YAY fror Pokemon! :D

05-25-2008, 07:24 PM

My favorite character of all time on the Pokemon series was Kanon [Biana in the English and other multiplanguage versions] of Pokemon 5: Gods of Capitol Water, Ratiasu and Ratiosu. She was Ratiasu's best friend and love to draw. and I don't know why but I really, really liked her.

So I decided to cosplay her. ^////^ Really cute, simple outfit. Though I sitll have yet to master the wig...she has wings on her hair. xD

I've also done Gym Master Erika, the Ghost of Maiden's Peak, and am planning to do Advance Generation Satoshi.

05-25-2008, 09:22 PM
I do! I usually do Ash Ketchum (my friends and I kind of have a mini Pokémon group, and I am Ash always, no matter what they do XD).

I plan on doing Crystal one year, since she's one of my favourite Pocket Monsters Special characters.

I also plan on doing a Darkrai gijinka for 2009. ^^;

I've also done Gym Master Erika,

Which version? Game, anime, any of the mangas?

05-30-2008, 03:22 PM
Everyone on /cgl/ does pokemon gijinka, cause thats the cool thing to do.

05-30-2008, 07:35 PM
OP isn't talking about the Anime/Game human characters guys. :P there is another board for that.
There has been quite a few here from the last con I went to. Had the hideous Mewtwo of course, along with a Meowth and Pikachu.

05-30-2008, 11:07 PM
I'm in the process of doing a Gayrados costume ^,^
It likely won't be done until at least next year but it will be done!

06-02-2008, 02:44 PM
I bet that will be very heavy? it would be cool if you said TRAGDOR!! XD gomen i saw a amv of a gayrodos saying that.

06-02-2008, 09:37 PM
I've done Cassidy, Jessie, May, and Nurse Joy before =3 I've got pictures of Cassidy and Nurse Joy on this site... and I <i>think</i> there are some pictures of the May costume on my old DA site......

... I still want to do a Harley cosplay ^___^ Harley rocks. That is final.

06-13-2008, 08:54 PM
If i had a female to work with I have the perfect gardevoir costume for them

06-15-2008, 07:55 AM
I used to be quite the pokemon trading card game champion when I was about 9 and they used to hold it at this place in darling harbour called sega world. I used to always cosplay as ash whenever I was playing a card game.. ah the good ol days.

06-15-2008, 04:14 PM
Hiyoo ^_^
I haven't done any YET, but I definately will! I wanna do a bunch of gijinkas, especially Snorunt, my favorite. <3
I'll probably end up being Ash/Misty/May/Dawn. One of those, I'll bet. And I really want to cosplay... uhmm.. the girl from the Manaphy movie. The one who's hair is in a bow! o_o -has only seen it once and doesn't remember D:-

My girlfriend is dead-set on cosplaying charizard in the next year or so. I'm going to be either her trainer, or something vaguely human-like I can work with--guardevoir, roselia, misdreavus.

06-17-2008, 08:41 AM
I made a Raichu kigurumi just a while ago ^^ And it was great, I got so many hugs and everyone loved me. I think I'll wear it again at the con in the end of July. It's going to be so damn hot, though... -__-

07-03-2008, 03:16 PM

I did at one point, I cosplayed both Kagari, Shelly, and Mars, pretty much someone from all of the villian teams except for Rocket (I don't like them...) Now my costumes seem like crap compared to my recent ones.

Got Glomp?
07-03-2008, 03:53 PM
Sazume search for a girl named Crazy Flower. She made an amazing jiggly puff and she helped me alot while making my kirby costume. She is veeeeeeeeeerrrrry sweet and I bet you she will help you out!

07-03-2008, 03:57 PM
I am planning to cosplay Vaporeon , Palkia , or Espeon for this years con at TsubasaCon if I don't do Princess Serenity.

07-03-2008, 06:39 PM
I'm making a Khangaskhan and my buddie Errkuh is doing Jinx. :'] We're going for the NEVER EVER cosplayed thing,
&It's gonna be amazing.
I've made a helmet with horns our of duct tape and tin foil and now I have to find a way to recreate that shape in a better material such as plastic or paper mache`. It's so thick right now that I'm afraid putting paper mache/gesso on it would be for naught, like it'd only end up bending and cracking..
I'm not sure. :/

I should upload a pic&see what you guys think<♥3

07-06-2008, 10:51 AM
i've been Plusle (with my best buddy as Minun!), and Dawn/Hikari before at cons ^_^ in 07 and 06 respectively.

My dream Pokemon cosplay is ... Nurse Joy! I also thought of making a human Chansey, but when designing the costume I realized that Nurse Joy is pretty close to a "human Chansey" as it is ^_^;;;

Ooh.. the day Super Smash Bros Brawl came out, I was super-ghetto pikachu x3 I re-used my yellow skirt (sans tail) from my old Plusle cosplay, I wore a pikachu shirt, and used makeup to make the red circles on my face. Somebody asked me if I was princess peach -_- and my b/f at the time who was Ness.. somebody else asked him if he was Pokemon trainer. LOL

07-06-2008, 12:37 PM
Was a pokemon breeder last convention. I'm working on a Jirachi cosplay for A-kon 20. After that i'm going to be doing sudowoodo, Lotad, and Kabutops. Possibly even Furret if i get enough will to.

07-06-2008, 01:31 PM
my last costume was squirtle (why squirtle ? couse he's awesome thast why >_<) i was quite happy with how it went.

07-06-2008, 04:30 PM
I've got the Milotic Gijinka on my "To-Do"-list...
But atm I'm afraid that I will end up looking like a tranny >.>
