This is in scraps because it's my evil little secret
I am planning on making a Pokemon trainer costume for DragonCon, based on the silly little trainer I made up in the Pokemon Meme
, slightly based on myself.*
Here is Birdtrainer! She will annoy you when you're just trying to get to the next city so you can get another badge by hiding in the grass and spotting you as you try to get by. She'll run up to you, cheerfully, and say something like, "my bird Pokemon are the best! Let me show you them!"THEN YOU BATTLE
I created this mostly so I could figure out exactly what I'll need to get to make this costume. So far the only thing I have is the gloves ('on hand' meaning I have them, not that they're on my hand, hur hur). I pretty much know how I'm going to make the Pokeballs (and they're going to be awesome, let me tell you what), though not 100% sure how to make the holster. Trial and error, I suppose.EDIT
I decided to make a checklist of what I have and what I still need to get, for my own records:Hat
: In progress (making)Undershirt
: HavePokeball Holsters
: In progress (making)Shorts
*Yes I do look that derpy in real life.
