Jessie (Team Rocket) - Pokémon


London MCM Expo May 2008

1st prize; Best Costume. Cosplay night@Dungeon.




When Pokémon was at the height of it's popularity I was in Junior School. There was a non-school uniform day so I went to school dressed as Jessie from Team Rocket. That was my first time cosplaying! Obviously I didn't have any dress making skills so it was more of a customising job.
Years later I decided to try it again!

I made both Jessie (my costume) and James (my friend's costume)costumes for
my friends 19th birthday party but it got cancelled. Luckily there was a Cosplay night@Dungeon around the same time. We won first prize!

It was quite simple to make as there isn't much detail involved.
I used a hard wearing white material (most other materials were see-through!)and fabric paints. The most difficult thing about making this costume was the thickness of the material, my sewing machine does not like it!)
Another problem was that I lost weight between the first time wearing it and the second time! (London expo May 2008)

After wearing a couple of costumes from quite obscure anime/manga/games it was a nice change to wear something that everyone recognised. I felt famous!

Click for madness XD
