This year my boyfriend and I went all out to become the infamous Team Rocket from Pokemon. I am a long time Pokemon fan and always wanted to create a Jessie and James costume for Halloween. This year happened to be our 2nd anniversary so we really took it to the next level!

I'm a bit of an authenticity snob, so I made sure to get very detailed. The wig/headpiece was by far the most challenging part, and definitely the make or break of the entire costume. Without Jessie's signature gravity defying do, it simply wouldn't be complete! I purchased a 160 cm cherry red wig, and recruited the help of my friend's talented mom who happens to be a master crafter. She took the raw materials I purchased: steel wire frame, paper mache fixings, the wig itself, corset boning, spray paint, hairspray, gelatin, and some other odds and ends to create a monster of a wig, more challenging to wear than most drag queen's sunday best!

The bumps, bruises, and headaches I acquired while wearing the thing were beyond worth it for the perfection of the costume in it's entirety!

I thrifted the other components of the costume from various goodwills, savers, and even ebay over the course of about 3 months. Started in August finding the perfect parts for both Jessie and James (not pictured here as it would go against the rules of LB). I also purchased a sewing machine and learned how to hem the skirt and the shirts. I found everything I needed to find, including the pokeball! I am truly proud of this costume, all the hard work, and learning new skill sets. I'm excited for next year's challenge!!
