Gijinka Sandshrew WIP by invader-gir Gijinka Sandshrew WIP by invader-gir
Not sure who took pictures of this since I found it on a random gallery before finding it again on 4chan.

Anyway! This is my Gijinka Sandshrew costume that I made for Anime Boston. I say its a WIP because what you can't see there is the missing waistband and side/back pockets. Other than that and a small spot on the back where I missed with my sewing machine and its complete.

Debuted at: AnimeBoston 08
Time taken to complete: about 10 to 12 hours on the hoodie and about 4 to 5 on the shorts.
Character: Sandshrew (Gijinka - Humanized version)
Series or Game: Pokemon
Inspiration for cosplay: Those asses :iconlousyitachi:, :iconstardustshadow:, and :iconpaulioshi: posted pictures of the Gijinka Pokemon all over LJ. So figured I had just enough time to make one of the simpler ones.
Comments: No waistband and no pockets makes it a rather interesting pair of shorts. REALLY surprised they didn't almost falldown at all.

The patterns I use mostly for sizing and whatnot are your normal hoodie patterns you can find at any Joanns fabric store.

I know I'm super late but I just saw a picture of this somewhere and had to find out where it came from. I'm in love with this hoody, it's amazing.

Wow, you did an awesome job on this costume! Its soo cute! I've been thinking of making one myself but I don't have the time (or the will XD I'm lazy) Again, great job!

Thanks! And actually just find one that you're really into, tends to help with the motivation.

what is that thing in the bubble wrap? oh yeah... i never can do waistband... it take to much from me.... but nothing ever falls down!! yay me!!!

That would be a controller for the game Pop'n Music ( [link] ) but that one was a solid blue controller.

I'm actually still missing a waistband on those. Really hoping I didn't loose the pieces for it.
