Misty Cosplay

Since I started playing Pokemon Go! over the summer I’ve wanted to dress up as Misty for Halloween. :3

As stated previously with my Vanellope Cosplay I am not interested in sewing an outfit from scratch and much prefer to piece one together using real clothing items not costume items. Misty was super easy to do because I decided to go for the inspired look instead of being exact. I got red suspenders and a Togepi plush on eBay, a golden tee from Target and then used shorts and chucks that I already own and my own hair instead of a wig. It was easy, only cost me $20 and I still had children recognizing my character so wins all around! 😀 😀 😀

A Little Bit of Poke’mon

Even I am swayed by trends. A little while back I had seen someone in my Tumblr feed who copied a scene featuring Ash and Misty in their own style. Up for a change of pace, I decided I wanted to try draw one too. Sadly I cannot find the reference image for the life of me. T^T

Printer paper, Ballpoint pen, Crayola Markers and Colored Pencils

Yes. This is my crappy 20 minute rendition of an older Ash and Misty. There is not much to say other than I should have decided before hand if it was going to be marker or colored pencil – not marker over colored pencil, and that I really should have spent time on their anatomy/proportions.

And my second Poke’mon related project… an amigurumi Poke’ Ball! Also swayed by trends, I am deeply regretting getting started on this one.

Pearl Cotton thread, Polyester fiberfill, Milward size 11 Crochet Hook

Miniatures are just not my cup of tea.  Maybe if I was using regular yarn with an F or a G hook, but this size 11 business really kills my hands.

And as amigurumi is traditionally crocheted in a continuous spiral, the colors don’t align…

Nuuuuuuuuuu~! >o<

…which I completely forgot when I got started! But it is duly noted for future projects. I think I will glue the round disc over that part… >_>;

So there you have it, my little bit of Poke’mon.
