I started making the head for the top of the staff. I'm using paper mache based on flour ^^ one part flour and one part water, works perfect! cheap and easy to wash off your hands :P
I'm gonna make some progress pictures soon ^^

[Edit]
Here's the picture I promised ^^

grahhh. again.
I completed ONE Pikachu ear - it is stuffed and all sewn nice - but I'm now having problems trying to attach his stupid black thins. I have both black felt and black fleece, a machine threaded with tan-ish thread I don't really want to re-thread completely JUST for this when I have to make another ear anyway and all the black thread and hand needles in the world. I seriously thought this would be one of the most simple parts of the cosplay - HAH.

Any help~?

I'm not sure if you want to go this route, but you could make the other ear and do both of the black tips (on his ears, right?) last. That way you could get everything done in parts and would save the trouble of rethreading the machine.

I'm amazed. These tea leaves I was going to use for ears are still alive after about 8-9 days after being picked (AKA ripped) off their parent plant. O_O;;

It's great to hear someone's getting inspired by my costume ^^ It's cool to make an silver lugia costume! I can't wait to see it ^^
Your welcome, I'm a very big fan of Lugia.

Oh, By the way.
I made a sketch for how I want Lugia's staff to be. Any opinions on the staff?
It might be hard to see...
That's a very neat idea. As a suggestion, you could have Lugia's wings near the top to sort of "enhance" the whole sceptor/staff idea. Just a thought.

Hokay, I did his other ear and they're actually looking pretty spiffy, and I guess I'll rethread the damn thing when I'm ready to do the black.

...Also! For fun, I 'put' them on my head in the mirror to see how they looked. They make me at least 5ft 9 / 6ft in height, which definitely means I'll have to watch out where I'm walking with my 'new height' when I wear them... hahaha!

Ah, I haven't thought of that! That's an awesome Idea! I'm gonna sketch right away! picture comes soon :P

[Edit]
And here's the sketch I've came up with ^^
I made 2 versions. number 1 has the wings facing inward (inspired from the lugia-chess-piece used in pokemon the movie 2000)
And Number 2 has the wings facing outward. (that one makes me think of xatu for some reason xD)
Anyway, I have a hard time picking one :P so you guys can pick it out for me xD

I'm debating between Drifloon and Banette at the moment for which cosplay to do.
I''m going to be in a group pokemon cosplay for FanExpo at the end of the summer.
I'm leaning more towards the Banette at the moment, mainly because I have an idea of what to do with it. More so than with the Drifloon.
:]

I have no clue where I would wear it, but I really want to make either gijinka Umbreon, Mismagius or Darkrai... notice a pattern?

Ironically, Espeon's my favorite, but I look horrible in that color lol

@solstis: adorable hat!! Mudkips!!

@fairyknight: ooh I like both designs for the staff =O I'm leaning towards #1 as well tho. First off it's a cool reference to his chess piece in the second Pokemon movie like you stated, I like that idea ^_^. And second you don't have to worry about the wings on #2 poking anyone or chipping off while traveling around the con or along the ride to the con.
