Pokemon Cosplay

This one I suppose could go in both the Video Games and Anime costume threads, but since I'm focusing more on the game designs for the characters, I decided to post it here. Back before Leaf Green and Fire Red came out, if you preordered one of them, you'd get a special pocket guide for the game. Looking through the guide, I really loved the new character designs. I've always wanted to cosplay Brock, and after seeing his LG/FR costume, I knew I'd just have to do that someday. So, anyone else out there planning a Pokemon cosplay sometime in the future? Or have already cosplayed a Pokemon or Pokemon character?

I'm not a Poke'mon fan anymore though I still like playing the original game boy games sometimes.(Did you know the Blue version was the Green version in Japan? Venesaur was on the cover.) Anyway, despite the fact I don't like the actual thing anymore (except the occaisional GB) , I do wanna do one and only one Pocket Monsters cosplay: Kasumi(Misty) just for fun. Then I'll never do another one ever again.

Awww, now where's the fun in that? And yes, I did know that Green and Red came first. Blue was an update with new art for the characters and pokemon and a few new features, I think. Our Red and Blue were based on the Japanese Blue version, with the new art and stuff.

I was going to be "May" but actually just the generic female trainer in ruby/sapphire so i could carry around plushies of my team at Animagic, but I refused to do it without the right shoes which I had found but were out of stock at the place... so it's been on hold ever since =(

I have tons of plushies I could use, but only one of them is a pokemon that Brock actually has. XD

I've been planning a Meowth-girl costume design since 2001. I suck. Hopefully I'll finally do it next year. Dammit. I want a big Meowth plushie to carry around. Or maybe a Wobbuffet, because I'll be Rocket-style Meowth. Do they sell Wobbuffet plushies? o_o; I want a Wobbuffet. ;.;

I kinda wanna be that new female trainer from FR/LG. She has my hair. XD; But I have other stuff I could do. There's a trainer design (not the player characters) from Silver/Gold I kinda wanna do, but I'd wanna have four girls with me doing the matching ones like in the game... Doubt I'll ever do that. @_@;; Bleh. I'll stick with Meowth. I've also always wanted to be Musashi/Jessie, but not til I could have the hair somehow absolutely perfect.

It's just me, on the costume, because I want to know if suspeders feel like overall straps. Also, I heard the unedited version of the TV show had some naughty stuff for American airwaves like an old guy pointing a gun @ Satoshi(Ash) and later uses it at Team Rocket and I even saw a picture of it in a magazine and it looked like it was photographed from the show in a bootleg. Just thought I add that to pass off my time.

I really like the new designs too, and I've been playing LeafGreen far too much lately I'm planning to do some Team Rocket cosplay (girl) early next year:

I dunno about the gun thing, but it is true the unedited version does have some more adult things to it. There was an episode (which I have in Japanese on VHS ^^) where Kojirou/James wore a full bodysuit and a bikini.. and the bodysuit had a button where the fake boobs grew bigger. He was showing it off to Kasumi/Misty and bragging about it. ^^; It was eventually aired in America, but I think the entire swimsuit contest all this happened in was cut out. @_@; I never saw it in English, though, s'just what I heard. o.o

the swimsuit contest was still shown, they just cut out the whole jessie and james part of the contest. if you didn't know about them being in it previously, you wouldn't have known it was ever there to begin with (those bastards lol)

and yes, there was an episode that had guns in it that didn't even air over here. there was this guy who pointed a gun at ash and then later jessie and james had guns pointed to that guy because they wanted his dratini or something... i forget where this took place cuz it's been so long since i've been obsessed with pokemon lol.

and about the cosplay thing? i'm working on jessie right now. woo.

The gun episode was when they were in the Safari Zone. And the American version of the swimsuit episode made on mistake when they edited it. Whenever a contestant came out, they had to have a pokemon or two with them that were dressed up. Squirtle and Starmie were dressed as an alien spacecraft with Misty. Well, they showed Ekans and Koffing (of Team Rocket) and even announced them, but they never showed Jesse or James.

Heard all about that one and I even saw a picture from that episode with Kojirou and his bikini with the fake boobs feature! LMAO! Was it just me or did I see lipstick applied? Oh, and my brother and I kinda downloaded part of that episode that caused those kids to get seizures... it had Porygon in it and it got a world record for all the kids being hospitalized. Now someone claims about 50% of the kids hospitalized actually had elipsy. Weird....
