Mew - Pokemon




My first full mascot costume and cosplay.

Mew was always my favourite Pokemon when I was younger, and I really wanted to make a costume that made people look and say "I remember that character!"... and Mew seemed like the perfect choice as everyone remembers trying to get hold of one in the old red/blue/gold/silver games! That, and the character is just so cute I couldn't resist... XD

Despite being very basic and not all that well-made, Mew was still popular; and I lost count of the number of times I was hugged, glomped, tackled and photographed (and not just by con guests... some of the staff and random guests at the Ibis hotel even wanted hugs and photos!). I guess everyone really loves Mew! ^^

Interestingly enough, the tail, when stretched out to it's full length, is about 5"8... just over 7 inches taller than me... but still looks way too small. :/

Although it didn't look anything like I had hoped it would, I learnt a lot from the construction process; and this costume will also always have a special place as my first ever mascot costume and the thing that made me realise I wanted to become a professional creature costume maker. ~ <3

CosplaySnap also took two awesome pics of the costume that can be found here:
