Pikachu cosplay: Ears and Tail by Avi-Ayuni Pikachu cosplay: Ears and Tail by Avi-Ayuni
Well, for WAi-Con this year, I'm cosplaying Pikachu Gijinka as part of a Super Smash Brothers Brawl group. This is what I've done so far, because they're the main parts of recognising the cute little pokemon.

*EDIT* This is the end result [link]

The beanie was the hardest to do for me, especially sewing in the ears. Tutorial from :iconclearkid:
As you can see the tail is not quite finished as I have to attach it to my shorts that I'll be wearing.
EDIT The way I attached the tail is by using wiring inside of the tail to keep the shape and stiff. I then, attached the tail onto an old waist-belt, looping some extra wiring coming out of the tail onto the belt then sewing the loose fabric of the tail on. The I simply put the tail on like any other belt. However since I made the tail extremely big for my short to hold, it droops down a little. So make sure you resize the tail compared to your body and don't make it too heavy! =)

This is the first cosplay I've made without any help (coz I am really bad at measuring things) so I'm happy so far.
