I didn't make this costume, but my son did...so I think it still counts! He entered his high school talent show with an original song he wrote about Pikachu. He thought it would be fun to dress up as Ash Ketchum. He grabbed some fabric from my stash and went to work...without a pattern! Anyway, it turned out great and added to his stage presence. He also painted the Pokemon characters used for the fight scene. A fight scene? What fight scene? Well, you'll just have to watch the video!
In case you're wondering who Ash Ketchum and Pikachu are and what they look like, here's a picture:
Costume Tip: Encourage your kids to sew so you won't have to!!
