Thanks very much for the DD!

P.I.K.A.C.H.U. (Power Initiative Killer Aegis Construct Homing Unit)
Acronym by: DumbledoreShotFirst (BLOG: [link]

OC Pikachu Battle Armor designed by myself. First time constructing full body armor for cosplay. Costume has light-up eyes and lights on sword (electric plasma light) and shield. Due to bright outdoor photo, weapon lights were turned off to conserve battery life and glow effects added in PS (shoutouts to RokuRex).

INDOORS:

Details:
-Unowns on sword and shield (guess what they spell out?)
-Pokemon theme song lyrics all around left side of belt (flat pieces below pokeballs)
-XXV on helmet and chest piece (#25 Pikachu)
-Made from cardboards, foams, plastics, modelling clay, way too much glue & magic.
-Build time: Approx. 1 month

Big shoutouts and thanks:

Hey, this epic picture has been everywhere, finally found the source. I already started to make the sword, but for the formality I wanted to ask - can I use your cosplay as reference? My armor won't be nearly as good but I think I'll be able to replicate the weapons.

Also are there any pictures of your back? And any specific tutorials that you followed? I never did cosplay before.

^^ If Pikachu was massively mangled and the they replace body parts/fused him with a humanoid body and then the Power Ranger recruited him and he went on a long journey to get his Anima Greatsword.

Hey, I love your cosplay, it looks amazing. :D I’m making a video of the PokeRap, but with cosplay pics for the Pokémon. I was wondering if maybe I could use your cosplay pic for my video. I will credit you, and I will let you know when it’s finished. Thank you. :)
