Goldeen Misty – Pokemon

As most 90’s kids would likely relate, Pokemon was a huge part of my life growing up.  It was arguably my gateway into anime, and I played 100s upon 100s of hours in each Pokemon game training my parties to beat the Elite 4 – over and over and over again. Misty only wore this outfit in one episode during the original Pokemon anime, but that didn’t stop me from wanting to cosplay it!

Construction Notes:

I made this costume to wear to Colossalcon 2015, so I wanted to make sure I would be able to wear it in the water with no problem.  The leotard and gloves are made using swim knit fabric and the tails are made with mesh.  I also painted an old pair heels white since at the time I couldn’t find a pair of white heels to buy.
