    Default Making a pokemon trainer Halloween Costume

    I am going to make a pokemon trainer halloween costume but can't figure out what the basic things I need are. I know I am going to need some pokeballs to attach to my belt and a poke'dex but what else? Should I also get a plushy and pin it to my shoulder or something?

    And a backpack with a pokéball motif.

    Well, these are some of the basics you might need.

    1. A hat, most likely a baseball cap.
    2. A back pack with a pokeball pattern.
    3. Fingerless gloves.
    4. A Pokemon Plush toy (it doesn't have to be Pikachu all the time,)

    Or, try looking at pictures of pokemon trainers (from sugimori artwork or just from the anime.) and base your outfit of off that.

    They always wear hats

    A backpack/item bag

    I would imitate a specific trainer so people will recognize you as a pokemon trianer. Maybe Red or Lucas or Brenden...

    A hat, and try to get a pokeball design on it. A backpack, a pokemon plushie (doesn't have to be Pikachu, unless you want to be Ash, which in that case you'll need to weird up your hair) and a fur jacket if you want to be a Platnium character.

    I'm just going to be a random person. I picked up some of the keychains that come in pokeballs to clip to my belt so I have pokeballs on my belt. I am going to get a plushie to safty clip to my shoulder I know. Just haven't figured which one yet. Also I'm going to pick up one of those pokeballs that have the plushie inside that you can toss and have it pop out. Thanks for the ideas everyone.

    I forgot to tell you guys that the only place I can get online is the libary. So my posts my be few and far between with work and such. But I will post pics once I have everything together.Again thank you all for the help.

    Depends on what trainer your going as. But usually a plusie and pokeballs help. You can look at my group Jhotodex cosplay in my sig if you need ideas

    it would be wise to specify which trainer your dressing up as,but feel free to do whatever you want.

    You could always have a town map or something (using a map of Japan). If you want people to recognise you, shove a Pikachu plushie on your shoulder or something. Another idea is if you are a FR/LG trainer, you can make a VS Seeker and put in on your bag strap.

    The best thing to do is to look up pictures of the trainers to get ideas

    Here's a summary.
    On the top, aroused hair with a cap/ headband. For your outfit, a shirt-jacket/ vest (like what Brock has) combination or something slightly body-fit and blue/khaki pants.
    A watch, goggles and backpack is good for detail.
    If you want Pokeballs, I recommend it under a jacket or back of a belt.

    To further emphasize you're a Pokemon Trainer, have Pokeball designs, if possible. And if you have an expendable Pokemon plushie, cut its mouth/ bottom and get most of the stuffing out. Pokemon Pelt Bag FTW !

    I saw a girl dressed like Misty/Kasumi last halloween. Totally not joking: short-shorts, tiny yellow shirt, orange hair in a ponytail... I think she also had a Togepi plushie too ^_^

    I think everyone else said what you need. Fingerless gloves, a crazy wig, a backpack, and a plushie. You can use your backpack to carry your candy! ^^v

    Hmm, I wonder if I should go as a Pokemon Trainer... XD (Cuz I've got everything already! *brick'd*)

    Depending on what kind of trainer you want to be, you may need a vest or a jacket.

    I think most things have been mentioned... I wish I knew how to get a cool belt you could put a fake Pokeball on but eh, it's not too needed.

    Eh, I'm going as Blue from the special manga myself just because I can.
    School is pure evil, taking too much of my time.
    Also trying to make a battle tower team... x_X
    Blue from Pokemon Special is my bishie. x3 You know you're jealous.

    If it were possible, I would've dressed up as Gold, but meh. I'm not really skilled at finding/making costumes of anything, really.
    EDIT: Lookie har, a rank-up.
