Pokemon was one of my favorite shows as a kid (I am sure it was to most people who grew up in the 90's :P) and so I decided to make a pokemon gijinka costume!
I chose Meowth because Team Rocket was always my favorite on the show.
This entire costume is hand made and designed by myself.
-For the dress I altered a pattern I had and sewed the whole thing from scratch.
-The tail is attached to a belt underneath the costume and is made of wire and stuffing to be poseable, then covered in fabric.
-The legwarmers were sewn from a pattern drafted by me.
-The cat paw shoes are made from cheap canvas tennis shoes covered in foam cut into the shape of paws. Then covered with fabric and some extra stuffing was added to round them out a bit more.
-The coin is made out of craft foam and hand painted.
-The ears are craft foam covered in fabric then the inside pink of the ears was painted to add depth.
-The teeth were bought for a more catlike appearance and the golden bracelets were chosen for accessories because Meowth's love gold and also use it to attack other Pokemon.
