Pokemon Trainer Cosplay

Category: Video Game

Completed: 100%

Cost: $ US40

Hours to Make: 10-20

First worn at: Kumoricon 2009

Inspiration: My friend and I decided last minute to do a Pokemon duo. She ended up choosing May, and I was the generic Pokemon trainer from Brawl or Pokemon Fire Red.

Favorite Aspect: It was so comfortable! I wore this costume to work on Halloween. I lined the vest with black cotton even though the pattern didn't call for that. I think it really made it look nice. I'm really proud of my backpack, too. And my pokeball!

Least Favorite Aspect: The zippers keep undoing. I'm no good with zippers. If I could do two things to this costume, the first would be adding the pokemon insignia to the backpack, and the second would be buying a wig. Since I was backing this with the Kusuriuri, I wanted to be cheap and didn't worry so much about what my hair looked like.

Easiest Task: Buying the shirt, cuffs, and jeans of course! Really this was all pretty easy. The vest was straightforward, and the hat was just two hats dismantled and sewn back together.

Hardest Task: Zippers. I had to wing it so the vest zipper always undoes itself. The backpack was pretty tricky, too. I have to applique the back of it since I finally got a good shot of it only after I finished the stupid costume.
