Costume Information

Cost : £40
Time Taken : About a monthish

I've become really addicted to the Diamond/Pearl series of Pokemon, and so have decided that if I go to the October Expo, I'll be cosplaying Dawn.

The hat was made from white fleece, with the pokeball pattern sewn on with pink felt.
The scarf is just red fleece. Very simple XD
The shirt is black t-shirt material, with a small piece of white stretch fabric.
Skirt is pink slightly stretchy material
Boots are pink Ugg-style boots.
The bag is yellow cord and made by my mum (I was busy hat making at the time)

The wig was bought from Ebay, and many thanks to Luminescence for cutting it and helping style
I have a Piplup plushie 8D Cosplay is a suitable excuse for such a purchase.

I love this costume! I need to adjust the skirt a little though as it got annoying :/
