I'd been wanting to do a Pokémon gijinka costume for awhile, and thought that Voltorb would be a good one to start with. This is my own design, & it was an easy costume to put together. The most challenging aspect was getting the placement of the eyes correct. I wanted them to be just beneath my chest so that the eyelids would have a 3-D look (similar to the official Voltorb art) ^_-.
While I was walking around the con several people called out: "It's Voltorb! Don't make her mad or she'll self-destruct!" Thankfully, everyone I met that day was very nice to me ^_^.
Jason liked my design, and drew the gijinka artwork you see on the left (I colored it).
