Cosplayer Kupo-ko > Costume of Pikachu from Pokemon
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- Mostly this was just another "hunting and gathering" costume because I didn't have a sewing machine to work with this year. I put a yellow fishnet top over a brown tank top and used two yellow petticoats to make the skirt poofy. Most items were purchased on eBay. The shoes were an old pair of character shoes (dance heels) that I painted with acrylic paint and I hand sewed the notch in the tail. I used grease makeup for my cheeks and nose.
- Personal Thoughts:
- This is supposed to be my couple cosplay for me and my boyfriend. I did my best to put a notch in the tail to make it obvious that I was a female Pikachu. All-around I think this is my favorite costume, just because it got great reactions from people. My favorite was when a little girl (who was not a part of the convention) asked to take a picture with me because she loves Pikachu! I was really touched.
