Description
Ho-OH, mascot of Nintendo's Pokemon Gold and soon to be released Pokemon Heart Gold. The Idea to do a gikinka came from my girlfriends previous cosplay as Lugia (who will subsequently be redoing for the Japanese art festival as well). After much late night squeeing and feverish dreams of one bad ass cosplay, work has started (well bought some material and tights lol).

Complete! (Posted 11th February 2010)

Well, it is now complete! Just gotta hope it fits alright >_< when freyarule tried it on, some hot glue bits snapped off D: but I am considerably thinner than her :P that's what she says anyway, so it'll fit me a bit better...eeeeee!

Progress yay (Posted 30th January 2010)

'Sup this be Freyarule (neko-riddles' girlfriend and the maker of this outfit xD)

thought I'd update you all - all that needs to be done now is to finish the tail and the top (sew the wings together etc etc). It's coming along smoothly. The wings don't have as much "segments" as I hoped but his arms aren't long enough :P lmao.
