I love the coat O_. but didn't understand the random nails on the fingers >_<;;;
the horn and tail seem to be the hardest parts to incorperate

you could make the tail a marking on the back of the coat? I've seen a few wehre the pokemon tail is a made like a keychain and worn on the belt it's tail is so untail-like XD

You could just make the horn thing by dying a strand of your wig on the right side of your face, and making the tail a weapon. Or making both of them weapons.

honestly I like the horn is what makes it recognizable as a pokemon. IMO if both were weapons I wouldn't see it is a pokemon anymore

solstis & hawkflight : thank you ~
i was going for a somewhat refined look, hence the tail coat.
as for the " random nails " there was some thought in that. xD
absol only has three fingers.. claws.. whatever you call them- on his feet,
so i tried to work that into the design there.
but if that seems like it's too confusing to recognize, i can always alter it to where they're either full gloves, or fingerless gloves with the nails.

aha, i figured as much with that horn.
as well as the tail. it's like this weird little nub thing. xDD
i'll play around with the idea of making the tail a keychain or an accessory of some sort though.
as for the horn, i'd considered dying my hair in it's shape as well,
but i'm worried that even if i do it right, people will still ask what i'm supposed to be.
that happens a lot when doing original concepts, unfortunately, no matter how obvious they may be.
i might just have to suck it up and have a giant thing comin' outta my head.
but i'm not sure what materials to make it out of so that it won't be too heavy or how to even attach something like that to a wig. ideas ? o _O

Sabien: Well, I'm afraid I've never attempted anything like this before so I have no idea if it would work, but I guess what I'd do in that situation is make the horn like a plush horn, then use a wire attached to the tip and the other side to keep it from falling down from the weight. But that's just an idea, I have no idea if it would work or not, sorry I can't be of more help.

At any rate, I tried my best to sketch the plan for my Lugia costume. I know I'm a lousy artist, but this is the best I could do. I don't even have any colored pencils with me, so I quickly added color using my computer's lousy photo-editing program. So yes, I know the picture is lousy, but it should give you the general idea.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v1...ugiasketch.jpg

Basically, it's all-white for the most part, except for: the spikey-eye things coming off the side of the hood, the chest part, the plate-like things on the back, and the two spikes on the tail. (Yeesh, I'm a writer and this is the best I can do to describe them.) For the tail, I'll wrap the cloth belt around my waist, and I'll line the back of the eye and back things with a thin layer of cardboard so they'll stand up. Still, I feel it's missing something.

I had to scrap my original plans for a Dread Pirate Roberts-esque Lugia, since the mask just wasn't working, as was pointed out here, so I'm going with the hood, like recommended. As you can tell, I'm not very confident in my artistic ability, so any advice or tips would be appreciated. I've never done gijinka anything before, so this is a new experience for me. If anyone could give me their thoughts and recommendations, I'd be very thankful; I'm planning on getting the remaining material tomorrow, or at least that's the plan.

eliteslayer : aha, don't worry, i've never tried anything like this before either. xD
any suggestions are better than nothing to me, so thank you for your input !
but i think i have an idea of what you mean, as far as attaching it.
sort of like a headband shape for the wire beneath the wig ?
if i go with the plush, i'd have to chicken wire the hell out of the inside to give it shape,
but at least that way it'd be hallow on the inside and fairly light.

and it's good to know i'm not the only one that's new to this sort of thing. xD
my first suggestion would be to incorporate Lugia's giant hand wings.
he feels incomplete without them !
you can probably do this by either creating the sleeves to be that shape,
or maybe making a scarf that has ends in the shapes of his wings.

i love the idea of using the cardboard to make the spikes on his back stand up. //cardboard prop lover.
just be sure to give the spikes a bit of dimension, and they'll turn out nicely.

as for the belt, are you intending it to be like a sash kind of thing ?
or an actual belt that like, has a buckle and stuff ? o wo

dazzle chan : ooh, vaporeon looks like it'd have a very cool design ~
are you going to use one of the existing gijinka artworks, or are you designing your own ?

Aye, that's more or less what I meant, and if it still starts to lean, you can use a real thin string or wire to pull it to the side by attaching it to the top of the horn and the other side of your head. At least that's the thought that came to me, like I said, dunno if it would entirely work, but I think it could.

Oh yeah, the hand wings! I was thinking of getting gloves for those. Large white gloves. I'm gonna buy something with a white hood for the main body, so I don't really have the talent to widen the sleeves, but the scarf might work, definitely. As for the belt, yeah, I was thinking a sash. Figure I'll have to make the spikes on that conical, but that much I can do. Thanks, I appreciate the input!

I thought of something else for Absols hair Make the side horn a hair clip :3 as long as it's made of something light weight it can be big without hurting you.

now that you mention Vaporeon I think that Making Jolteon (with that yellow dress again) would be fun X3

and it looks like Lugia is getting to be a popular gijinka :3

With the release of HeartGold and SoulSilver, I'm not surprised. Tho' for what it's worth, I've been wanting to do Lugia for ages.

Well, I couldn't find anything with a hood today, so I'll have to try again next week. Should worse come to worse, I've got the shirt I was originally planning on using, I might be able to add a hood to that if I can find one. No luck on a sash or scarf either, sadly, but I'll be able to find things that will work eventually.

so my friend just informed me that she has buckets of white fur laying around from a previous fabric run.
i can probably tweak my design so i can have the monstrously fuzzy cuffs and collar that i wnated ~

eliteslayer : aah, that's a good idea ~
though i hope it won't be that heavy that i end up doing that. xD
either way, i won't know till i try.

big gloves would be a good idea, i was thinking of suggesting that earlier,
but i wasn't sure.
well, widenning the sleeves on a pre - made piece of clothing is probably semi - impossible unless you're okay with it looking weird.
however, attaching sleeves to, say, a sleeveless hoodie gives you some leeway.

alright sweet. i like the idea of it being a sash versus a belt.
my only concern with the sash, is that if you get a hoodie that's really baggy and has that clingy bottom things that sweaters have... THIS THING is what i mean. xDD //fails at explaining.
anyway, i'm wondering if wrapping a sash around that in the middle of your body will make it bunch up weird on the bottom.
i think if you did get a baggy hoodie, you may want to wrap the sash around the bottom portion of it.

and you're welcome, glad i could be of some help ~

solstis : oooh, that'd be cute ~ ! o wo
but i'm doing a male version of him,
so would that be weird to have a hair clip ? xD

Aa~, you guys have such interesting ideas~. :3 I did a shiny!Umbreon in 08, but it didn't look so nice since it was last minute. This year, I'm doing things on time and plan for a shiny!Banette and Sunny Day Castform.

Here is a not-so-wonderfully drawn sketch of what I plan for Banette. I'll be putting an actual zipper on my mouth. The hat and armwarmers (or claws) will be made of fleece since I found the perfect color. I'm still looking for the right color shirt and I'll be wearing some simple jeans. I, unfortunately, have no idea how to do the tail. ;_; I had an idea but have no idea how to execute it. Also, do you think it'd look bad if the shirt's color was off by a shade?

For Castform, I don't have a pic yet, but it's pretty simple. Orange/red tank (or t-shirt if it's windy), white jeans, and yellow shades. My problem is with those balls around the head. At first I was gonna make a hat, but I just had an idea to get some styrofoam balls, put orange bun-covers on them, and somehow attach them to my head. I'm leaning towards the faux buns, but I really can't decide.

Well a hair clip for a guy when it's for a pokemon is a bit different >_< but yea >_<;;;;

@StrawberryNinja - how are you getting a zipper on your mouth O_. ? OH! that would be fun for a con where you may see 'normal' people XD; it may scare them X3 the reaction would be great

@Tatsu - Hey I'm doing the same thing ! Well have been trying, I can't really go to the gym and I don't have a place to walk where I can dance and not get looked at funny >_< however nothings really working for me I mean like I don't seem to tone :< but doing DDR is atleast getting me active
