PIGGYNUKKA INTERVIEW (aka VICTREEBEL)

Today we’re talking with Nikki (aka Piggynukka), listening to her cosplaying experience and how she put together one of the most popular gijinka costumes on the ‘net, Victreebel.

I’m pretty sure many of you have seen Nikki’s cosplay before, especially if you’re into gijinka cosplay.  I’ll let the audio interview do most of the talking but you’ll get to hear about specifically, where the costume idea came from, dealing with the fandom around it, and other cosplay interests.  Credit for the intro song is 100% (C) WillRock at OCremix.org.  Hit the bump for more photos and links.

BUMP!

Top 5 D’aww Pokemon Gijinka Costumes

Kids in cosplay are always super cute.  This has been true with other geeky nerdy properties such as Star Wars (see UnrealityMag here).  The formula holds true even for Pokemon.  I’ve included the top five (in no particular order) Pokemon-related (gijinka, cosplay, etc.) costumes that get you to make that sound everyone makes when they see something cute.  You know… d’aawwww.  I’ve only included a few, but if you want to check out more, visit the Everything Pokemon blog and Coolest Homemade Costumes, for their own personal creations.

These were definitely my favorites, but there are plenty more amazing constructed and amazingly cute Pokemon costumes out there for the little ones.  Sorry to anyone who got left out, but feel free to supplant this list with some of your own favorites.

Keep ’em costuming!

~Best Pokemon Gijinka Ever

(C) Dart:DenseBoy

This is Guilmon, the best Pokemon gijinka ever.  The costume is based on Guilmon, the Fire Rock Dinosaur from Pokemon Zirconia.  Guilmon’s moveset includes Throw Rock, Powerancient, Spin Fire, and Stormsand.  With a whopping 2,500 base stats, he’s ultra rare and can only be found by beating the game 16 times without a single Pokemon in your inventory ever fainting.

Favorite Gijinka of MegaCon 2011 – Throh

At last, the moment you all have been waiting for, my favorite gijinka at MegaCon (that I was able to see):

Throh (Nageki Jp.).  This guy, whoever he is, had some serious guts to not only dress up as a pokemon, but he also picked one with a generally unpopular character design among fans.  Throh is from Black and White so he’s not too popular except to those really into the series (yes, “me”, I know).  But this cosplayer brought a lot to the table.

MegaCon 2011 – Gijinka, Pokemon, and Other Cosplay

1st MegaCon ever and I walked away impressed. Yesterday I traveled south to Orlando to visit the Orange County Convention Center where the largest anime, sci-fi, all-around-nerdtastic convention in Florida takes place. My girlfriend and I left at 5AM to get to Orlando by 7 (per the advice of a friend). We waited in line very briefly for the tickets but they didn’t open the doors until 10AM. A lot of people stood in line to get into the main convention hall, but we aren’t saps! We waited til the doors were open and then people flushed in like a corral of bulls. Panels, exhibits, comic artists and writers, and oh the costuming NERDS!

Read on for costuming tales and photos galore!
