When: March 2014
Where: Portland, OR
Friends and I were looking through Cowslip's drawings of pokemon in human form (called gijinka) when I fell in love with her Chansey design and had to give it a go. It was only for a small local event and I managed to get the costume done in a week. I loved making it but was sad that no one recognised the design, and even more depressed after because no one came to talk to me about the costume and the photos I got of it weren't very good.
I had to change the design a little because of time restraints and the fact that the proportions on the design compared to a real human body didn't quite work the same way. But I tried to get it as accurate as I could. I also didn't have a sewing machine at the time so the entire thing was made by hand.
