Empoleon (Gijinka) - Pokemon Gijinka


Amecon 2010


I figured I wanted something new to use for the ball and since the Gijinka bug has well and truly bitten me...I went looking for a formal looking Gijinka!

What better way to be formal than to emulate a penguin!? LOL I love this cape!


Finished as far as it's going for Amecon. If I decide to wear it again, I'll make a cumberbund to be the ruffly part at the bottom of his stomach (with the black dots) and might even make his mask ^_^

I really like the Gijinka of this :D! Good luck making it ^_^. I am making a Charmander Gijinka dress for the Amecon ball as long as I have enough time to make it lol

Cape is now done! Just some tidying up to be done! Quite happy with the collar. All of my sewing is sloppy (always is I know...LOL) but I was rushing!

Neck Tie

Had some leftover ribbon so decided to make his necktie. It's not great but it kinda looks the part.
