I can't really say how the idea of a Pokemon group was born... but finally we decided to do a Pokemon group for Hon-Con 2005. Tiamat was the cutest Marill ever, Blacky did his favourite Pokemon Psyduck (its "Enton" in german ^^) and I decided to do Raichu because it's my favourite one and I wanted to do something differend than all the Pikachus ^-^ We wanted to so something special and not only some pokemon and in the end there was the idea of Pokemon maids and a servant. Our group entered the contest at Hon-Con and got the 3rd place (we were really surprised O.o): We used a song of the german accapella group Wise Guys called "Achtung ich will tanzen" (Attention! I want to dance) and were dancing on stage.
Raichu was a costume I had to planned from the start by myself because there wasn't a Raichu maid before and the pokemons are sort of animals. I was looking around for a pattern to use for my dress and finally found a McCalls pattern I fell in love with: MC 4622 *-* Its a pattern of a cute dress with frills and a nice hat. I used the color combination of white, orange and brown which is the one Raichu has and I made some gloves and boot covers as paws and I really love the tail! I'm a fan of animal tails so that was perfect for me XD
