About This Costume

This Popplio cosplay has been a long time coming! I started planning for it in November of 2016 and just got around to finishing it. With being sick and then deciding to focus on My Little Pony it really was put on the back burner. The design I decided to go with for Popplio was an original one, because the thing I like most about cosplaying is getting to design something of my own. I based her off of a cute clown and went from there.

Why I Chose This Costume:

As soon as the starters were announced for Pokemon Sun and Moon I loved Popplio! I saw it getting a lot of hate from people on the internet and couldn’t see why, because they were just so cute! I generally don’t like clowns, but this was my one exception.

How I Made This Costume:

This entire cosplay (minus the shoes and gloves) was handmade by me! It took a lot of work, but I am very pleased with the results.

Romper – Custom drafted and made with cotton from Joanne’s

Vest –  Made with a simplicity pattern and altered to be a peplum type top. The pompoms were also made by me with a pompom maker.

Neck Ruffles – Organza surged and stitched to a ribbon.

Wig – Long pigtail wig from amazon

Hat – Interfacing with a handmade pom pom
