I entered my other costume I made for the contest, but i still wanted to share what I was this halloween: Pikachu!
I made the pants, shirt (which has brown stripes on the back), hat and tail. the tail is attached using the same method wings are usually attached - back pack style. The tail was made out of foam, fleece and lots of hot glue. the rest of it was made out of fleece. i didn't use a pattern, just winged it.
