Intro: Pikachu Costume/cosplay!
I threw this costume together with virtually no planning beforehand and finished it four hours before I was supposed to be at the party. I originally fancied making an instructable for it, but I think it would have went something like this:
"So I sewed this to this, and cut out these pieces, and then realized I had none of that and this next part is completely winging it."
The costume is made entirely of yellow fleece and brown felt, which cost me nothing! Hooray fabric stash! The ears are handstitched, stuffed and colored and glued to a headband. The dress was based off my favorite stretchy sheath dress. The tail is three layers of fleece and two layers of cardboard and it's glued in placed and then sewed as well. If anyone would like more details about the ears and tail, I can probably help you out, but I wouldn't take my advice on clothes. I am still learning and the dress was exciting at best. :P
So here is my absolutely epic and fangirlish Halloween costume - which the checkout guy at Kroger rated as the "Best Halloween Costume" he had ever seen - complete with cameos from Mark Twain, a Robot, Gay Teen Wolf, Pam Beasley, The Byronic Man and other assorted characters. Enjoy!
