View Full Version : Pokemon Trainer - Brendan / Ruby

Wow, it's been so long since I posted. >>' *shame*

Anyway, AX is looming like the monster under my bed, so I'm breaking out another cosplay.

I chose Brendan from Pokemon Sapphire/Ruby/Emerald / Ruby from the Pokemon manga. I don't think he get's enough love. That's right Ash. I'm sick of you. You and Pikachu.

Here's the game artwork. (http://img505.imageshack.us/img505/851/guiaesmeraldaimage021dt1.jpg)

I need some opinions/answers.


1. How would I go about with that collar of his?

2. That hat. How would you make it?

This place (http://www.apocalypse-pony.com/costumes.html) apparently does commissions for Brendan/Ruby. The hat looks alright. Maybe you can ask that person for tips?

Good luck with it!

I was thinking of doing Brendan for a friend of mine, actually. I've got a spare white wig that I'm not using, and the rest of the costume looks simply enough- I'd avise using a regular polo-type of collar for him and just...popping it. It's the simplest way that I can think of, and it's what I would of chosen. As far as the hat goes, a long green bandana folded over some padding (foam, socks, whatever you have as stuffing) would give it that raised look and could wrap around your head and such. Then you just draw the half-Pokeball symbol and done.

If you're planned on sewing the shirt yourself, just buy a pattern with a stand-up collar (it'll have instructions on how-to).

Or, you can make your own pattern and just sew in interfacing or a piece of thick felt between the two sides of the collar.

I know this is older buttt, -w- If you need help with the hat, all I did was use red{ actually, any color will do :] } and white felt, cut out a pattern, glued it with hot glue, and Tada~ I got the hat, I'm not sure about his outfit though. I think you can just pick up a red or black hoodie and get some fabric paint. Then some black shorts and black pants. =P His shoes... I dunno.. Duct tape? :D :sunny:

the shirt you can go with a black polo with some red fabric paint, but be cautious on the paint, cause there's no telling if it's gonna bleed into other parts of the shirt.
For the hat, i think they might be selling one over at ebay, but if you want to make your own, try to base it of a ski cap or somthing :D
