Thanks a bunch! I love designing stuff like this based off Pokemon and other game characters like this. :D The slippers were hard to find, but once I did I was excited. All I had to do was paint the talons white. XD I still wear them at home a lot too!

I really appreciate your compliments! Though I did have help with the pattern and all of that, this was actually my first cosplay/sewing project. I'm sure someone else could do a better sewing job, or maybe I could replicate it (hopefully better quality) if anybody was actually interested in commissioning me, haha.
Thank you very much. <3 & no problem.

Well, I will have a Misty cosplay done within the next few months, and a secret gijinka I'm working on designing as well. I know I'll have more photos by fall at the latest. ^^ I appreciate the support!

I think I did see an awesome Seaking, actually. But only once and I failed to get a photo. ;-; I actually really want to do a Gyarados one of these days, since he's my second favourite Pokemon. Sorry we never ran into each other at con.

Absolutely wonderful! :heart: I love how you managed to create a pokemon I loved from back in the day (ohgod I only HAVE gold) and morphe it into this. <3 You paid so much attention to detail and colourschemes and they are all in the right places.
What I respect the most are your 'paws' though. Those must've taken quite a bit of time, though the costume itself must have taken quite a bit of time in general.
You should be proud of the outcome. I really really like it.

Awe, thank you so much! :heart: ;u; Your compliments are immensely flattering. Ho-Oh has always been one of my favourites as well (actually Ho-Oh is my favourite legendary after Mew). I made sure to pay attention to detail when designing it.
Actually..the claws were the easiest bit! xD It was a bit of an annoyance to find the right slippers with just three claws and in black, but once I did, all I did was paint the claws white. >.>
The dress itself took the most time since I've never really sewn anything before this, and I neglected to get a pattern. x.x

Thank you once again! <33 I'm so happy you do like it. ^^

D'awww, thank you so much! ;u; <3 I'll be bringing my Ho-Oh to Kumoricon as well as back to Sakuracon for any Pokemon shoots there may be, if I return to Sakura that is.

I appreciate your wonderful compliments though! :heart: & the bow was actually an accident, I was wearing it for a little while for the heck of it then I forgot to take it off. xD But it looks cute with the wig so I'm not complaining.

fff this = so good. ♥

This looks amazing for your first sewing project. <: It's very accurate and detailed without being over the top. I love how you've done the design on the wings/arms (and for sleeves being as horrible as they are, you did a wonderful job~)

The contacts look like they were a pain though. D: But they really finish it off, 'specially with the intimidating stare. xD asdafa you just look so good in this cosplay, srsly, makes me want to make a Pokémon gijinka cosplay.

Oh, props to ~shi-shi for the wonderful photos too, they really help to show off the cosplay. c:

Dawww, thank you so much! ♥ ;u;

I'm so glad you think so. There are a lot of sloppy areas..but it was a difficult first sewing project. xD DEM WINGS/SLEEVES, man. Those were the worst part to do. I had help with a lot of major areas but I did most of it myself and that's why I'm happy (plus seeing my designs come to life is an awesome feeling <3).

The contacts were actually not too terrible, at least in good lighting/daylight. Overall, they felt a little funny and itchy, but only really when I payed attention to them. However, when I was in a dark room or it was dark outside, I could see little to nothing (due to them being 'block colour' contacts), and they felt like they were getting lost in my eyeballs. Though no harm was done. ^^ I wouldn't be able to look intimidating without them, honestly. xD You should totally do a gijinka cosplay!! <3 I'd love to see it. Any Pokemon in mind?

I know, right? ;u; She is a wonderful photographer. I'm so happy I got a shoot with her. ^^
