I'm surprised there is no thread actually focused on this. xD

I'm sure everyone and their mother has heard of the craze with the Pokemon Gijinka's lately. I know a few cons are getting group gatherings for them as well..
But there are no threads actually focused on the cosplaying, atleast none not relating to a con gathering. ;)

The Pokemon Gijinka craze is basically human styled Pokemon. With their outfits, hair, etc resembling the Pokemon itself.

Yes thank you for posting this thread! I have one gijinka costume but I need ideas, I wanted to used this dress for the AWA formal... [url]http://i203.photobucket.com/albums/aa194/Morgans-Random-Photos/PHOT0152.jpg[/url]
Would that fit for Azumarill if I made the ears? Or is the dress too dark? And if so XD what pokemon do you suggest for it, I was thinking Dragonair if not Azumarill

Tis Azumarill, I was thinking the polkadots on the dress are too dark but I don't know

#3 Kuro Yue on 10 years ago

One of these days, when I lose weight, I'm gonna do all the Eevee ones. :) I love Eevee - it's been my favourite Pokemon from the start.

(Also, thank you for the source link. XD I've been looking everywhere for the originals).

I'm probably going to start on Umbreon, because the design is so epically emo I can't resist. XD

#4 Kazukii on 10 years ago

I think the dress is a bit too dark for Azumarill. Like you said. Dragonair is darker, so I can see it working for that one. c:

#5 Miss Meru on 10 years ago

I'll be putting together Pichu for the Dragon*Con group ^_^; I don't think I've ever worn that much yellow in my life, lol~

#6 LUCKYKonata on 10 years ago

I've actually never heard of this...lol.
I'd love to cosplay one. They're so adorable. =)
I like the Mightyena one.

#7 Kazukii on 10 years ago

I've yet to see anyone interested in the Mightyena. XD It'd be spiffy to see. c:

#8 Ra3-Ra3 on 10 years ago

Thanks.
This has inspired me for my first cosplay.

#9 Cat-Chans on 10 years ago

I've already made one >>
Glaceon pictures are in my gallery

#10 robbriley26 on 10 years ago

Ill be putting together Aggron for an Otakon group

#11 vampirate on 10 years ago

I've put together Meowth's dress, paws, ears, and tail for a friend. I'm about to send Vileplume fabric off to another friend. And I'm making Zubat for myself. (all for the D*Con group)

I think fleece and flannel and other snuggly fabrics are appropriate for a lot of the Pokemon. I used off-white micro plush fleece and light brown fleece for Meowth. Vileplume is kind of flannelish, I'm not exactly what it is since I bought it off a clearance table years ago. And I'm using turquoise and purple fleece for Zubat.

you sound like me lol im 6'3" and weigh about 275 with an athletic build. Check out Aggron and see if that fits you. Hes pretty decent in size, probably would fit what you are looking for

#14 Kazukii on 10 years ago

Yeah. There are quite a few big Gijinka's in the group. Just look at the links I provided. c:

So I'm going to be doing a Luxray, Luxio, and Shinx trio for an upcoming con with my buds. I'll have progress shots soon. Muha. x3

#15 Char350 on 10 years ago

I was planning to do Gijinka for my Pokemon cosplay group, but since I ended up nothing having enough time I became the Diamond/Pearl trainer. I think one of these days I'll try Beedrill.

But the rest of my group did a Gijinka group at [URL="http://www.cosplay.com/gallery/100289/"]Anime LA 2008 [/URL]and it turned out pretty well. I think some of the members are going to improve on their current costumes.
