In this post, we’ve separated some Pokémon costume ideas for you to get inspired and even customize your own outfit!
Pokémon costume ideas
Pikachu is the most popular Pokémon since the beginning of the series. Everyone knows the cute little yellow monster with a lightning tail. As it is the main choice at a costume party, several specialty stores sell ready-made clothes for both children and adults.
Ash Ketchum is the protagonist of the anime. Even with changes in your clothes over time, the proposal is basically the same: cap, shirt + vest, gloves, jeans and sneakers. And it’s as good for them as it is for them!
misty is the companion and best friend of Ash in the first seasons of the series. With a strong personality, the trainer specializing in water pokemon also dresses very simply. A great bet, especially if you’re in doubt in fantasy.
The bumbling villains team also has a lot of fans. Pokémon costumes based on the Rocket team make your look really beautiful and standout. You’re sure to get a lot of attention at the event!
You can bet on this idea with your friend/girlfriend or boyfriend/girlfriend! It looks super cool!
One of the most popular and beloved Pokémon, Charmander and their evolutions (Charmeleon and Charizard) are very successful and also have good costume options available in stores. It’s practically a cosplay!
There are many ideas besides the most popular characters. In the sixth generation of little monsters (and humans) – almost in the seventh – there are Pokemon costumes diverse, amazing and practical to copy!
The great advantage of Pokémon costumes is that they are versatile, suitable for both men and women!
How do I invest in Pokémon costumes? Search the internet, visit costume stores and anime stores. Another option is to ask a seamstress to make an adapted and specific outfit for you!
Golden tips: Mercado Livre, Aliexpress and for those who live in São Paulo, in the Liberdade neighborhood there are many stores with costumes/accessories, as well as places that customize the costume to your liking! 😀
How to Make an Improvised Pokémon Costume
If you need a quick fix and a improvised fantasy, you can easily assemble a costume inspired by a character from the Pokémon franchise! Many dress simply, with clothes you have at home and easily find in stores.
For an Ash costume, all it takes is a pair of blue jeans, a basic black t-shirt with a blue overlay vest or a simple blue sleeveless blouse, green gloves, a red cap and accessories. You can do it your way, as long as you look like the guy!
As for the girls, Misty is a sure bet. You’ll need short shorts, a yellow blouse, a simple suspender and a red all star. For the props, it’s up to you. As for the hair, you don’t need to dye it. If you’re not a redhead, bet on an orange wig.
Now if you want something enhanced, the Rocket team is a good inspiration to make your look more beautiful. What you need: black boot/boot, black gloves, white pants, white blouse (preferably with the team’s signature R) and the wig (purple for James and violet for Jessie).
For girls, a custom dress looks really cool, and it doesn’t take much for that!
