Hey everyone!

Im a huge pokemon fan & so I wanted to cosplay as a Pokemon Gijinka...

But I have no idea what pokemon to choose! D: Why?

1. I have way to many favorites
2. Im still a somewhat of a newbie at this
3. I just dont want to be another pikachu (I think thats the most common one out there.)

I just wanted to know if anyone out there can help me out? Maybe like...tell me what kind of pokemon I look like or basied on personality?

It'd be loads of help! :) Thanks!

Looks- http://i420.photobucket.com/albums/pp287/kaname_kuran_15/HPIM4205.jpg

Personality- Quite, somewhat shy, can be entergetic though.
Love to be around friends, but does like to be alone(?).

Im not sure if that was any help ._.

You sound like a chikorita to me. :D

You shouldn't choose a pokemon based of looks and personality. Looks and personality are good when choosing a cosplay, but shouldn't be your main reason for the cosplay your doing.

My suggestion to you is to list the first ten to twenty pokemon that pop into your head when you think of your favorite pokemon, sense you like so many pokemon.
And then number them in the order you think you could get done in the shortest amount of time. As well as if you have a gijinka idea for that pokemon or not at the time.

And choose the pokemon you do because you like that pokemon, not because you resemble or have a personality that fits one.

what's wrong with pikachu? D: MAKE IT STAND OUT AMONGST ALL THE OTHER PIKACHUS-- /gets hit on the head with a pokeball.

i second what people say about personality. if i had to pick characters based on how similar their personality was to mine, i wouldn't be cosplaying at all! :P

are you ok with wigs, contacts? or do you just want to wear your normal hair?
if the latter, any pokemon that's black-based or has black accents would be good-- umbreon, houndour, houndoom, cyndaquil, typhlosion, luxio, luxray.... i can't think of anything off the top of my head but just look through a pokemon directory (: what looks like it would be fun to design and wear?

I second what everyone is saying, don't base it strictly on your appearance and personality, it'll be more fun if you just do what you want. c:

But Sneasel was the first thing to come to mind, myself, if you were planning on sticking with your hair color. X3

You wanna be different, then you don't do any of the Eevee family; people seem to forget there are 640 others to choose from. (Yes, that is adding in B & W)

You can't really go with personality in this case, since any Pokemon can have any nature. I look into ones I've actually used; kind of pointless to pick something that you have no connection to.

Sound like an Espeon to me. Or Umbreon, maybe? Hm.

01-22-2011, 05:37 PM
Hmmm....maybe a misdrevous???? You've got a nice face for it, and the dark hair already, just need the necklace and make a cool dress with it

I don't really think it should matter what your looks or personality are, as long as you like the costume and will have fun with it.
I think you'd make a cute Mawile, though

I'll second the Umbreon suggestion ^_^.

I also think Skitty could be cute.

01-24-2011, 07:32 PM
Agrees With Umbreon suggestion,
Maybe A Eevee.

eevee seems like the default set, other than pikachu...picking someone else makes you stand out from the rest.

Omg you should so be an Umbreon!!!

Why don't you share what some of your favorites are and then maybe we can help narrow it down?
But yeah it depends on your personal tastes and what your willing to do.
Ask yourself;
How easy do I want this it be to make?
Do I want to wear a wig?
When am I going to wear this? (season/time of year believe me it matters when it comes to cosplay)
Also google up some fo your favorite in their gijinka forms I have a folder on my laptop for just pokemon gijinkas I want to do. ^^'
