Buizel Gijinka – Pokemon

Pokemon gijnkas will always be one of my first loves of cosplay, so naturally I want to try different styles of costume when I can!  For Buizel, I went with a more “swim friendly” design.

Construction Notes:

Buizel’s costume is made of custom dyed orange Ultrapreme fabric, metallic blue vinyl, and some thick nude colored spandex for trim.  The fins are stuffed with quilt batting to give them shape and softness!  I also made the jewelry by hand and gave my “swimsuit” the classic Buizel twin tails!  The bikini top was purchased, but I added the stripes with black spandex.  Of course, I also had to add my Pokeball gems to the ensemble on the bikini top and necklace!
