Gary MOTHERFUCKIN' Oak (Meme xD) - Pokemon







Lolkay so this has turned out to be a super cheep, super simple cosplay 8D

I got the wig from one of my favourite wig sellers atm - ChinaJoy Cosplay Wig on ebay. Their wigs are so soft and decently priced, and my fluffy brown one has become my new favourite xD It's so spikey!! Like a little hedgehog! But if you brush it down it doesn't even have to be that dramatic *W* I loves it♥
For Gary, I'll just need to back-comb and hairspray the fringe to make it stick out C: I'm just putting it off because I don't want to alter the wig at all xD;; Even though I know I'll be able to fix it pffttt;; I also got some green contacts from Tokyo Toys, because I wanted circle lenses for other cosplays too xD I got GEO Nudy Color 2 Tone Green (CH-623), which I really like because they give a good natural coverage of my darkish blue eyes, whilst making my irises look all big and dolly and moe-moe xD

The shoes were simply £2 ugg boots from Primarni, with black ducktape added (thanks to Ruth for lending me her tape!!♥ 8D). It was super simple to alter these boots! All you have to do is cut the tape down to the right thickness to look right on your boots, then making sure you place it down evenly, stick it on to the boots C: The trick is to keep the scissors clean inbetween each strip of tape you do - it helps to use a wire scouring pad to scrub the scissor blades C: If they get sticky, they don't cut well and mess up the tape D: Just be careful you don't accidentally slice the scissors into your finger whilst you do this like I did orz;;;

I already had my blue jeans from Primarni (I swear, this entire cosplay is from Primark!! xDD), but I really struggled finding the purply/indigoy t-shirt fabric for the top. I didn't really want to use lycra, but it seemed impossible to find jersey fabric in the right colour D: In the end, I found some mens t-shirts in the exact colour I wanted (where from? You guessed it, Primark xDDD), so I got one in a size Extra Small, and one in a size Extra Large. As they were only t-shirts, I needed to alter the sleeve length to make them long-sleeved tops~ So I un-picked the sleeves from the XS top, and using these as a pattern by adding length using paper, I cut out new sleeves from the body of the XL top C: Then I simply sewed those into the armholes of the XS top, and added the orange trim (bias tape from hobbycraft - not primark this time xD) to the bottom!

I made the pendant using 3 layers of thick white card stuck together with double-sided sticky tape, then adding a base-layer of green paper. I drew around the circle onto yellow paper, sketched out then cut out the curve, and stuck one onto either side of the disk 8D Finally, I jammed in an eyelet thing to loop the cord into, measured it around my neck and tied it off at the right length~

I can't wait to do a shoot for this - it's such a comfortable cosplay xDD
