Sneak peak of a costume I'll be wearing to Anime North 2011.
I wore this costume for the release day of Pokemon White & Black at our store. I was able to host a small tournament for players to win prizes, and it turned out great. One of the top prizes was Touya's hat, and hand crafted pokÚballs. Thank you everyone who joined~!
Jacket was entirely made from scratch. I had to make my own pattern, sew all details and borders by hand. It's actually pretty thick, since the release was in March, and I wanted to stay warm.
Hat was modified from an old Wii baseball cap (entirely white). I took out the stitches, coloured the visor black, and added red fabric in front, with black fabric for the logo. I was really happy at how it turned out, so I made two. One for my costume, and one for the tournament.
Messenger bag was also modified, it's my Nintendo bag from the Metroid release. I love it too much to sew or glue anything to it, so the front is actually a slip-on. Velcro holds it together at the top, and I can take it off whenever I want. Trying to find a reference picture of the symbol was very hard... I'm glad I guessed right once the game came out.
I also have the shoes & pants, PokÚdex, and that phone thing on his wrist~
