|It wasn't a bandwagon I wanted to jump on...(and besides, by now it's long gone anyway) but after recently getting acute Pokemon nostalgia and looking through the Pokemon gijinka designs again I really couldn't help but find myself wanting to do one, some of the designs are too cute XD;; I feel like such a hypocrite... lol oh well|
Anyway, conviniently (and almost scarily so) I've gotten an excuse to make a Pokemon gijinka cosplay afterall, so I've decided to go with Sandshrew. It was always one of my favourites and on my team in Red/Blue (ah, the good old days...) and the gijinka has a really simple but cute design. I also wanted to avoid buying a new wig for such a simple cosplay so this works out fine as I could either use my own hair or my Haruhi wig, both would work I guess.

Almost done now! I should really have updated this more often but there wasn't that many stages of progress to be had...
The hoodie is all made now and just needs Sandshrew's strange brick pattern painting on it. I'm thinking of leaving off the lines on the pants since my paint isn't dark enough and they look alright plain, I think. Also, even though the design doesn't have them I decided to add some tabi socks to it since I don't want to be barefoot and I think they kind of look like Sandshrew claws anyway XD
Either way, I'm far too happy over how this has come out for being such a simple costume since it's the first thing I've done entirely by myself XD (yes...I used a sewing machine...and it didn't eat me @.@ maybe there's hope for me yet)
