My boys all wanted Pokemon costumes this year and because of the total lack of Store bought Pokemon costumes I was persuaded ever so nicely to make them a Pokemon Group Costume. Ash was the easiest. One trip to the local thrift shop and I had everything I needed for him minus the small details. Felt for the hat, pokeballs and hair dye. Pikachu was an old sweater with the hood chopped off, shortened arms and legs sewn together. I used the extra fabric for his ears which I attached to his yellow hat and the tail which is glued to his back. Strips of black fabric were added for the final touches.
Turtwig was the most challenging. My son wanted a full face mask and after a bunch of research I thought it would be fun to make it 3d. I found some upholstery foam and shaped it over an old toque. Added some stuffing to give it that 3d effect and extra fabric to make the cheeks. The eyes are see through so he is able to wear it and still see. His bodysuit is all hand sewn due to my lack of a sewing machine. Fleece body with yellow felt for the legs and arms. The shell is detachable. I just glued together some brown and black fabric over left over foam and made it into sort of a backpack so he was able to get in and out of his costume with ease.
All the costumes went over very well at the school party!
Prepared for Trouble, that's what I did... And made it double, having fun with the kids. Halloween 2006 and time to trick or treat; A Jessie from Pokemon Team Rocket costume idea that was really neat!
Dressed up for laughs as a villainous lass, Just there for All Hallows Eve and having some laughs. I cropped off a "R"- ironed on turtleneck shirt, And pairing it off with a scooter skirt.
Adding a flesh-colored overshirt with black gloves, boots and undershirt, I knew the a purple wig would also have it well to work. More like a nasty lady I gave out candy, And the kids loved it a lot, 'twas pretty handy.
Jessie! Indeed, but I didn't want to be blamed...
Team Rocket, having fun without having to be mean; Having fun celebrating October 31, all on Halloween!

My kids always come up with the craziest costume ideas, and I CANNOT SEW! This Bellossom from Pokemon costume proved to be quite easy. I made the tutu and hairbands myself, and added them to a green leotard and green tights.
If you compare to a Bellossom Pokemon card, you will agree that the costume came out awesomely! However, since most people who saw her haven't a clue as to who Bellossom is, everyone assumed she was the cutest Tinkerbell ever.
