Question Can this work for a Pokemon Gjinka Cos?

Hi, I have a dress I made for school that I was thinking could be adjusted to be a humanized cos of possibly Goldeen (first to come to mind...) but I feel like it's definitely missing something that would make it recognized on sight.

This is the dress (the original inspiration was the fat-tummy goldfish anyway, so I think Goldeen or Seaking would work perfectly)



In addition to adding a horn, what could make it better? Thank you for any help!

The horn and a tail. Blue contacts and makeup around eyes. Probably some white stockings too. Just my suggestions. I love the dress, the background, pose everything.

Thanks for your reply! White stockings would be a good idea. This dress is INCREDIBLY short (I ran out of time and fabric for all those hand-gathered scales)

Hm, I did think of a veil or tail, but I'm not sure how to attach a tail that would look good since the back is textured too. I'm thinking the tail would look bumpy due to the scales.

I have a close-up of the eyemake here:

Should it be more dramatic? I don't want to do facepaint. Or maybe anime-style eyes?

I mean white eyeshadow on the top. I love how you did it. Anime style eyes that would be cute. Totally up to you.

Maybe I'll try a style different from this one just to give it a go I don't really like Goldeen's eyes because I think it makes her look kinda mean or stuck-up. Very queenly!

Great dress! While I think that it certainly could work for Goldeen, I would be more inclined to use it for Seaking.



I think that the white to orange ratio and color placement would lend itself more recognizably to Seaking's look. Also, Seaking's fins look like they would be easier to duplicate (white with black spots as opposed to a white/orange gradient). The tail fins even look like they could be duplicated nicely by making some fairy wings that would sit on your lower back or bottom (just my 2 cents). And as a bonus, you get to wear fangs ^_-.

Haha fangs would be fun! And fairy wings are a really great idea for the tail I've never thought of that! Thanks for the idea :3
