GIR (Dog Disguise) - Invader Zim




I watched Invader Zim when I was about 11 or 12 and haven't seen it since until January of this year. And since I always loved GIR, I decided that I'll cosplay him someday.

To wear at Cosplay Scotland November meet.

For Kitacon 2012.

TACOS! Er, I mean "awesome". I like the beanie hat idea, and the giant zipper particularly. Great costume :)

Progress Journal

17th April 2012


Wore this on Thursday and Sunday for Cosplay chess at Kitacon. This went down pretty well, but after seeing some photos I need to fix this up somepoint.

1. May need a new wig.

2. Get a compression shirt. The cosplay looked bigger on me than it should (damn boobs lol) So next time I shall bind.

Apart from that, I had a great time as GIR!

Piggy plushie

Only just made him the other day. Like I mentioned in my previous journal, it was previously Kumagoro but with no luck finding a pig toy, this idea had to do. Besides altering him into a piggy, I also tidied up the plushie. Not the best but it will do the job!

26th March 2012


With Kitacon only 18 days away, I haven't had much luck finding a piggy plushie within a reasonable price. So this morning I decided that I'll use my Kumagoro plushie and alter him into a piggy. Basically take off the bunny ears and replace with pig ones and sew on a snout. Kumagoro will return to his normal self after Kita.

Yesterday I made and sewn on the zipper to the main body of the cosplay along with the tail, and also painted on the stitching detail on the back. Today I made the hat by using a current bunny hat as a pattern, sewn on the ears, eyes and tongue, then painted on the stitching, nose, pupils and tongue line. Currently waiting for it to dry so I can paint the stitching on the other side and thats GIR done!

Half way there

I've sewn my main body all together, along with the grey material for the zip and used fabric paint for the zip detail. Still need to add the tail then just need to make the hat.

15th November 2011

Made a start

Managed to buy everything I needed to make this. I used one of my leftover patterns I made to cut out the main body, and will be sewing it tomorrow and hopefully along with the zip. Hopefully this should take me about a week to finish off.

Since I may have little to do much cosplay work while at Uni, I decided to do smaller projects during the year and leave bigger projects til the summer. I've been struggling to choose between 4 or 5 cosplays for friday at Kitacon and after thinking about it, the easiest cosplay to make from my plan list is GIR. I was gonna cosplay him for Auchinawa 2010, but couldn't find the right colour of material until 2 weeks before the con, so I decided that this will be an opportunity to do it for Kita. It's a simple design and will be made of fleece. I get to run around singing the Doom song XD
