Recently me and Axel were invited to a Pokemon birthday party for our friend Iain. It was my specialty, a dress up party. I didn't really watch Pokemon as a kid so I didn't know much about what character to choose. Luckily Axel is a Pokemon nerd and decided that the best costume duo for us was Misty (me) and Togepi (Axel). My costume was pretty easy and comprised of things I already had in my wardrobe. There is no image because it wasn't even photo worthy. Togepi was a little trickier but I'm always up for a costume challenge.
It was a pretty simple egg shape with red and blue shapes on the outside. I made the top pointy like a half an eggshell and stuffed the egg body with stuffing to make it poofy and egg like.
The costume was not complete without a Togepi head piece with an elastic band.
I made arm holes on the sides to help hold the costume up and also obviously so he could use his arms. It is a party after all.
There was a prize for different categories of best costume. We won most accurate costume and the best possible prize (sarcasm) a bottle of Jameson. Clearly I'm not a fan, lucky for Axel.

Good times. Now Axel doesn't have an excuse next Halloween for not having a costume. Whee!
