Description
Have always loved Pokemon, I just had to cosplay Ash and be a (wannabe) Pokemon Master!!
It's not complete yet but if I ever get to finish it I'll update it later.

Jacket was made from polycotton with the white collar and sleeves being cut out from an old school shirt and sewn on. The yellow detailing is from cotton and the circles were appliqued on.
The jacket has fully functional pockets, wahey!

T-shirt was found in my wardrobe, no idea where it's from.
Jeans are my own, I think I got them from Matalan years ago.

Gloves are from Primark on sale, I cut them into fingerless gloves. I couldn't be bothered to buy fabric and make accurate gloves alright :P

Hat is from eBay.

Pokeballs are polystyrene balls from Hobbycraft which were painted.

My Pikachu backpack was given to me by the lovely Kelly (Blue-Niagra on deviantART) for free!! I lost mine when I was a kid but I have one again, yaaaay~~ :3

One day I wish to line the jacket and make gym badges. Ran out of time/money for that though so hopefully for the future this will happen!!

Jacket done! (Posted 31st March 2011)

MOST HALF ASSED JACKET EVER LOL. I didn't have enough fabric to sew on the lining so you can see ALL the seams on the inside and this bugs me to no end 8'( One day when I rewear and have enough money for fabric then I shall make a lining for it...

So basically standard blue jacket, I cut up an old school shirt for the white sleeves and collar because it's not like I would use that shirt ever again anyway... It had paint stains on it :P

Yellow button things were appliqued on.
Yellow bias binding is not actually bias binding, it's just random yellow fabric I had and stitched on lololol, there's no curves at all in this jacket though so I didn't need specific bias binding!

This jacket has functional pockets! Waheeey! Then I realised I would be wearing jeans with this anyway so I didn't actually have to make them functional... WHATEVER, I'M GIVING MYSELF BONUS POINTS ANYWAY 8'(

Time Taken: 2hrs

Wig styled! (Posted 31st March 2011)

Very half assed job I admit. This was originally my Seth (Trinity Blood) wig until I realised I had cut it too short! Hence why the fringe is kinda blunt and thick because I had to fix it up from her style.

Hat arrived! (Posted 11th January 2011)

I was being lazy and decided to just buy the hat, because my sewing machine doesn't have a stitch width that wide anyway and I don't want to hand embroider the tick :P

Bought on eBay somewhere!

I'd pose with some Pokeballs but I lost them orz. (I don't even know how I can lose a pair of pokeballs!)
