|Cost :||£20 so far|
|Yes, TenTen is doing a Pokemon costume!! I am going off of my own design, since I am doing a gijinka version, but I am very excited about this. I do plan to wear this to a con/event at some point but not until I have her perfect, in my eyes atleast. Which could take a while as I will be making/modifying it myself, XD XD|

Body Fur and Clothing - Check (Posted 7th July 2009)
I now have the leggings and top in for the main body of Vulpix. I also have the brown fur aswell. So now I can begin construction of the body. When I say construction I mean modification really, as I'll be attaching fur onto the clothing. Tis exciting to know that I can start now though.
Finding the leggings was relatively easy. Though originally I wanted to get shorts, but finding chocolate brown shorts is near to impossible!! So I got leggings instead and I was going to convert them into shorts but after trying them on they will actually look better as leggings.
Now the t-shirt... that thing was a nightmare to find. Again the original plan was to have a chocolate brown sleaveless top, but I couldn't find one anywhere. I was seriously considering searching on ebay. But then I found this chocolate brown low cut t-shirt in peacocks and it is perfect. The length is what I wanted. Yes it has small sleaves and yes it is low cut, but it works perfectly with the leggings. And I am so relieved to have those pieces now.
The next items for me to get now are the gloves and arm warmers. ^_^
Boots - Check (Posted 24th June 2009)
The boots are in. That is one part of my costume now sorted. I will be going into town tomorrow to look for the main body pieces and the fur.
I already have my eye on something for the gloves and the wig and I have pretty much worked out exactly how I am going to do the tails now. ^_^
The Idea (Posted 18th June 2009)
Ok, so me and Debbie were discussing possible Pokemon cosplays and Vulpix immediately jumped to my head. Also after talking about Pokemon cosplaying with Heather, I just got bitten by the bug.
I got so many ideas in mind about how I wanted to do it that I just couldn't resist. Also I want to give this costume a go myself, so it will (hopefully) be all done by myself. I'm a little worried about this since I have like no sewing skills at all but I'm going to give it a try.
The only parts I am still a little unsure about is the tails and wig but I have got ideas in mind. I really cannot wait to get started on this properly.
First stage though is acquiring all the bits and pieces. ^_^
