Pikachu - Pokemon





I chose Pikachu because I wanted a fairly easy cosplay, because I always have to ask my mother to ask me to help me and she doesn't have that awfully much time to spare to help me XD Also, back then, I was really into Pokemon again and Pikachu is one of the cutest Pokemons ever! I also, for a change, wanted a character people would recognize. Pikachu seemed to be a perfect choice XD

The hardest part was attaching the ears to the hairband. It was really hard because they always fell down. I wore this cosplay twice (for a con in The Netherlands and one in Belgium) On the first, I just sort of lived through the constant falling down of my ears, but on the second one, mum had the idea to attach the ears better. We also repaired my tail, because both are made of carton, which is pretty dead after a full day.

The easiest part was attaching the brown stripes to my costume, since mum did all of that XD As said before, it was a pretty easy cosplay.

I really loved wearing this costume because everyone else seemed to love it as well! They immediately recognized me as Pikachu and a lot of people asked for pictures. Also, I'm rather small, so that made the cosplay 'cute'. (Everything that's tiny, is cute, people XDD) Everyone kept calling me cute and told me I did a really good job on making this cosplay, and even now most people remember me as Pikachu XD

It was really fun! Pikachu FTW! =D

Jazy, you make such a cute Pikachu! =D The tights work much better than the paint, I think.

Aaaawwh, thank you very much, both of you! =D Yes, the tights are way better than the body paint. It wasn't even good one, so it's only meant for little parts (like my face, and a part of my chest in the later ones). I mean, you didn't even see it in the first cosplay XDD So the tights were waaaaaaaaaaaay better XDD =DD
