Costume Information

General
Cost : about £55 so far (includes glues)
Time Taken : making time about 26 hours/full time was 4 weeks

Description
After watching pokemon DP episode 172 and the future events bit (im so exicted!! =D)
its inspired me to do a togekiss gijinka
already done dawns piplup and now its time to do dawns togekiss

Wearing to London MCM expo May on the sunday all day =D also.....IM GOING TO ENTER THE MASQUERADE ON SATURDAY ^o^ (I just hope i can carry all my cosplays on saturday XD)

After watching DP 172 "Togekiss and the Magnificent Battle!" Togekiss has a more carefree behaviour and it doesnt really like to attack, it also takes on the role of being a guardian of some sort like doves normally are, togekiss also like to tiptoe to places so this will be hard >.< Togekiss in this episode really loves open spaces to fly around and likes to show off its gracefulness

It also seems confirmed that dawn's togekiss is female........not good for me lol but oh well

its gonna more of a top and trousers thing but will use a pillow underneath to get that sorta egg-like shape XD

its almost my first very own gijinka design (though i cant draw so the completed pictures will have to make do im afraid :( ) but im telling you its very different ^^

Wings, tail and crest are all made of foam and covered with felt :) Top has been moodded and the trousers will be modded with the added tail

Journal

Completed! (Posted 9th May 2010)

Yay im impressed i could do this........lotta fun bits but i need to be more confident in my abilities

it feels great to accomplish a self made cosplay! =D

Crest (Posted 6th May 2010)

Now with the tail finished its time to move onto the final piece of the togekiss project.........the crest.........im about 1/3 of the way there just the white spike and the dark blue spike to go and then presto =D

Progress! (Posted 3rd May 2010)

Over the week i have finished both wings and tail ^^

Just only one bit to go which is the crown and that is gonna be harder than it looks, so close, i am going to do this in time!

Wings Finished! (Posted 26th April 2010)

Yay 1/2 way done.......now its just crown and tail then its done ^^

I guess at least its something (Posted 22nd April 2010)

Well i havnt really worked on this for a few days due to me stressing and being depressed at college and so so......im not gonna say anymore about it cos il just rant on about my problems lol

well added the swirls (or extra outlines w.e u wanna call them) and aiming to get everything finished by next week during the weekend

slow progress.....AGAIN! (Posted 16th April 2010)

Hello everyone =3
yet again slow progress because my dad who was meant to help with the fabric is being lazy when he said that we would do today -sigh- promise is never hardly a promise these days

today was just pretty much adding the loops at the bottom of the wings and thats all, been so peed off that i should just try these things and if they dont work then try again!

Very slow progress!! D: (Posted 15th April 2010)

Well didn't do a lot today all I've done really is reshape the wings and crest. I tried using the fabric but is pretty difficult cos it creases n it's like grrrr oh but formed the curls that togekiss has on the bottom of it's wings so that's another bit added and fit my arm inside so yeah you could say I've done some but I wanted to at least put the fabric on one wing so I could show you all how it looks -sigh- maybe on Saturday hopefully.......

Crown/Crest progress (Posted 14th April 2010)

Yay the crest is almost all done, i just gotta add the fabric and the colour for 2 of the points and its done =D

so close......makes me wanna go ukiuki >.<

Wings progress (Posted 13th April 2010)

My wings are almost finished :imhappyplz:
i need to do the same with the other one and then put my fabric on it
IM SO EXCITED!

The cutting (Posted 13th April 2010)

Just done the outline of the wing on the foam and so i shall cut and that will be one wing done, its hard work i tell you that!

It can offically begin! (well the actuall crafting) (Posted 13th April 2010)

I got my materials woooo! i just hope its enough
hobbycraft is just the most amazing store ever!
hope to start a bit of work 2morro
(rolls on floor spazzing XD)

Top Progress (Posted 6th April 2010)

Yay i have actually started making my cosplay and so far its going well
cant wait for it to be finished
