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.

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.

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.
