It’s fashion, so I posted it in this. Move if necessary, I just wasn’t sure where a cosplay would fit other than fashion. ^^"
So, in January, a friend and I are planning on going to an anime convention, and I want to cosplay as Ash Kethcum from Pokemon and have my daughter dressed as Pikachu.
But costumes are pretty expensive, so I was going to make the costumes myself. Aside from Ash’s hat, I already bought that. ^^"
I want to do the original Ash, but I’m having trouble figuring out how to make the jacket. The rest of his outfit is fairly simple and I can go to Goodwill to get those. Simple black t-shirt, light wash jeans, a brown belt, and green fingerless gloves. I could probably even find his green back pack there. And with the shoes, I can just wear my Chuck Taylor Converses.
But with the jacket, it’s not exactly something you can substitute like the rest. It’s the blue and white short sleeved jacket with the yellow trim and trim on the pockets.
My question is, would any of my fellow GC nerds know where I could find a pattern for it as a cheap price? Or hell, even the jacket real cheap. I’ve checked eBay and Amazon and they are both expensive.
A Pikachu costume in toddler size is also expensive, I found a pattern to make one, but it has Pikachu as really fat and it’s almost thirty dollars for the pattern because it’s from when the show was first Americanized. >< Via (only registered users can se the link, login or register)
