Scyther is one of my favourite from first gen and I had so much fun getting to where my original design for the pokemon. This was one of the most fun and popular cosplays to date when ti comes to a convention experience. I was stopped time and time again for pictures in my Scyther Gijinka and I definitely plan on rocking it again some time next year.
This photo was taken by Caliban Creations and I am so grateful for his wonderful work.
Editing, costume and modelling was done by Yours truly.
This is costume was a challenge in design for many reasons however it was great to over come them and have this result. The headpiece is made by green craft foam with the spandex for the rest of the outfit stretched over the shape I made and sewn down. The wings and blades are what I am most proud of. They are made from Bristol board and cellophane. I will definitely be using this technique when I make fairy wings in the future.
