I've always loved Articuno, and now I've made my very own Gijinka cosplay of it. I made Articuno female for mine. I might one day do a male version. Maybe. But I'm so glad to have this cosplay done ^^
Articuno is one of my dream costumes. It's always been my favourite Pokémon. The perfect combination of grace, power, my favourite colour, ice, and intelligence. And it's a bird, and I do love birds. Articuno's completion is a dream come true. The makeup was step one as I wanted this costume to be PERFECT.
Step two was the wig. I found the perfect length and style, and colour. I really loved how it looked, and the only modification was tying it back using a hair elastic with silk roses and light blue feathers. I added some feathers under the elastic to make it even more feathery. And I added in some extensions of a slightly lighter shade of blue. The extensions are a lot shorter than wig, but I'm happy about that, makes the wig look prettier, and makes it easier to manage.
Then the dress. I bought a sort of sundress to use. It was the exact colour that I was looking for, but it was shorter than I had wanted. I love it anyway. I had wanted a gown, but this works even better than what I had in my initial design. I used long pieces of royal blue ribbon for her tail, and attached feathers to the straps.
