Pokemon Family Costume
Ash, Misty, and Pikachu
|Costume type:||Costumes for Families|
This homemade costume for families entered our 2014 Halloween Costume Contest.
A word from Ed, the 'Pokemon' costume creator:
My wife and I celebrated our first Halloween as a family of 3. Our daughter, Adeline, was 6 months old and once the weather started getting chilly we would talk for hours about Hallowern costumes. I grew up with a talented mother who made all of our Halloween costumes. I always wanted the same for my children but my wife, God bless her, is not the craftiest. We would always joke about how it would be fun to dress our daughter up as Pikachu because, well, we are nerds and loved Pokemon when we were younger.
As the October weeks flew by, we were stressing out about Halloween costumes because most stores were wiped clean and as established, not so crafty. We were at my parents house talking about this when my mom started asking questions about what we would idealy be. When I said we would be Ash and Misty from Pokemon and Addie woukd be Pikachu, she laughed. She went on and on about 7th grade me and how much I loved Pokemon.
Well, a mere 6 days later my mom texted me and asked us to come over with Addie. Much to our surprise, my Mom busted out her old sewing machine and made the Pikachu costume herself – no pattern or anything. We were stunned! I was so excited that the second I got home I cut off the sleeves of a dress shirt and began assembling my Ash Ketchum costume. We are truly blessed to have such a wonderful grandmother to our daughter and I am so happy she could have her very own homemade costume by my mother.
