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!

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!
