Does anyone have any suggestions for the fabric I should use to make Sandshrew? I'm not sure what the best fabric choice would be for the jacket.

Sandshrew

I know right? I totally blame Ari for showing me those pokemon! I really like Meganium's design but then I LOVE LOVE LOVE! Lumineon's XD And yet I haven't played diamond so I have no idea if it's even a good pokemon X3

Sandshrew
I think the simplest option is jersey cloth or some other knit that most sweaters are made of, but it would be cool to add some texture with a rougher material. I have a rough knit lying around that looks really interesting, rather like it's been home spun and woven.

Maybe I'll combine two materials. A rougher one for the darker area and a soft one for the belly. I'll see what the fabric store has to offer and judge it off of that. Thanks for the advice.

Well for the ears, we actually prefer to pin it to our hair, since a couple of our friends gave us the idea of pinning it instead of using a hairband. If pinning it doesn't work though, I guess we'll have to resort to using a headband @_@;; What fabric should we use for ears/tail? We don't really want to do something....fuzzy since Pikachu/Raichu's ears don't really look all that fuzzy-like lol .__. We plan on using the same fabric as the dress for the ears/tail, so yea, something comfortable would be nice XD

Try is with ins then first, but I'm not sure if it'll be secure enough depends on how big you make the ears. But go for it if it works!
How about regular cotton? Or perhaps fleece?

Fleece would be the best choice for non-uber fuzzy. And Pikachu/Raichu is a mouse, so they will be fuzzy, just not insanely fluff or anything..

I think the flowy sleeve idea would work well for a fish-touch. Sort of like seakings/ goldeens look.

I'm hoping I can put together a formal/ballgown version of Articuno in time for next year's AWA. =)

One of these days I'd love to get a group together and go as Eevee and all the evolutions. But it'd have to be a huge group! xD

knowing my brother liking lucario, he will ask me to make it for him.
Lucky for him, i was planning to make one after A-kon, and my pokemon choice would be Darkrai. He so cool.

Gah... I love Cyndaquil and the subsequent evolutions and the designs are so ADORABLE... but I can't bring myself to style those out-there wigs. T_T

It's also tempting to make an Espeon because I have yards upon yards of lavender fabric... I'm going to use to make a mock-up for another dress but I hate wasting fabric- so it's tempting to use the mock-up (with some modifications) to make myself an Espeon dress.

Edit: I know in the gijinka illustration that Espeon is actually a lilac color but I'm sure a pale lavender would pass muster, right?
