Alright, this post may run the risk being a bit personal for the site, but I was really pumped about how my girlfriend and my Halloween costumes turned out this year. As some of you guessed, I was Ash, but truth be told it was HER idea to be Pikachu first, as though she’s never played Pokemon, she’s liked the character itself since childhood.
So I followed her lead and assembled my Ash costume from various places on the internet. She got her ears and tail from China, and assembled the striped bathing suit/tutu combo herself. It turned out better than I could have ever imagined, and so I thought I’d share it here with you as this is generally the crowd who would appreciate something like this.
It was nice to finally have people recognize who I was for a change (previously I’ve been a Japanese 8th grader from Battle Royale, and Ash from Evil Dead), and everyone who got it seemed impressed. Obviously her outfit was more eye catching than mine, which is why I decided we needed to get a whole photoshoot of her Pikachu get-up.
Check out some more pics of her and us in costume below. And remember to send me your own costume photos from the weekend (firstname.lastname@example.org) for a post to be assembled later.
