Costume Information

Cost : £25

When I learnt about Gijinkas I had been wandering about doing one and of course cyndaquil was my choice for being my favourite pokemon and I can make the noise ^_^
But I couldn't find any designs that I would have liked to do, so I tried my hand at doing some quick sketches, then I asked my best friend, Sarah aka Salanica, to draw their interpretation of it since they are a lot better at drawing people/clothing than me XD Which came out very nice so I've coloured that in and will be what I aim to make.
The final outcome may have some differences.
Sarah aka Salanica should be doing her design of gijinka Chikorita for Amecon.
Wish we had a Totodile to complete the set DX

Material (Posted 16th July 2010)

As usual, finding the right colour of material was being annoying again but with this cosplay, though with there being various interpretations of cyndaquil with its colour I decided I really wanted to make this with some fleece, because its soft n.n; so found the cheapest fleece I can and it had a reasonable teal colour though still not 100% sure about it.
