DescriptionA friend of mine and I recently decided to do pokemon giginka cosplays for this year's Anime Expo and even though I still have a lot to do to make it the way I want it, I'm really glad I chose to do blaziken. :) I still play pokemon to this day, (currently black version) and my blaziken (Niwatori) that I lovingly lvl'd to 100 is my favorite poke-partner ever, so I'm really happy to work on this. I just need to stop procrastinating and get it done. xD
AX was a blast!! :D I had so much fun walking around as a pokemon the first day, even though it was so hot. The pokemon gathering was MASSIVE! I saw a lot of really neat cosplayers. The one that comes to mind at the moment that I was impressed with was a volcarona giginka cosplayer I saw while walking around.
Overall, I'm pretty happy with how this costume turned out. At first I was disappointed with how the pants and shirt came out since it was nothing like what I expected to see when I picked it up from the print shop I had paid to make it. But I've grown to kinda like it. It's a giginka style anyway; not the pokemon...so it works for me!
I would love to do a photoshoot at the park or something in the near future with my friend's dodrio cosplay, as well as a solo shoot in order to show my love for my fav pokemon. ^^ I want to try to portray my blaziken, Niwatori, in how I would envision him. I'm not nearly tall enough, (LOL) but I'd still like to give it a try and get some photos of a Sky Uppercut along with some other attacks. ^^
