Cosplay Progress: Baby Dewgong!

My baby girl got to do her first cosplay at Swampcon. While us and two of our friends cosplayed as the elite four, we dressed our baby girl up as a pokemon! She went as Dewgong, an ice type pokemon that Lorelei (my trainer) uses against you in the generation one pokemon games.

I dressed her in a white long-sleeved onesie with white tights and a Dewgong hat. The hat was relatively easy to make. I flipped one of her hats that had a white interior inside-out and attached felt pieces in the shape of Dewgong's eyes, nose, horn and baby teeth. I was lucky that the band of the hat was the right color pink for the mouth. I also attached felt to her baby carrier to make it look like a pokeball for added cuteness. It was definitely a hit at the con!

Cosplay Progress: Elite Four

I'm still plugging away at the cosplays I have planned for Swampcon. I found these nifty plastic ornaments at Joann's for 50 cents a piece and decided they would be perfect for making a set of four pokeballs for us to use as props.
