Cosplay Pikachu! ^^

As Mr and I are HUGE Pokémon fans I just had to pick us up Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire for Christmas to play on our 3DSs ^^

I chose Alpha Sapphire (cause Kyogre is more Kawaii than Groudon!!) and Mr got Omega Ruby.  One of the new features in these games is a Cosplay Pikachu!! ^^ Squeeeeeeeeeeee Here is glimpse of some of the cosplay costumes from the back of the case:

There are five different outfits this special Pikachu can wear, these are used both in the special Pokémon performance competitions in the game as well as when you battle using the Cosplay Pikachu!  I'll show you each of the cosplaying Pikachu costumes!

First up is Rock Star Pikachu wearing a edgy red and black costume! How awesome does she look! I just love her outfit!! ^^

Next up is PhD Pikachu! This brainy Pokémon has Kawaii pigtails!

Now we have Lucha Pikachu - dressed up as a Lucha Libre Mexican wrestler.  Maybe this Pikachu was inspired by Hawlucha? ^^

Here's Belle Pikachu - a refined look for this costume! Very Lolita like I think!

Finally, there is my favourite - the Pop Star (or Idol) Pikachu! Squeeeeeeee!!

Isn't she super Kawaii?! ^^ The popularity of these Cosplay Pikachu outfits means the Pokémon Center stores in Japan have released a limited range of plushes...and I just had to get the Idol one!

*Tooo much Kawaiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii*

The level of detail on this plush is amazing - from the Pokéball accented bow, to the colours on her dress, it's all just like in the game!  Even the tag is super kawaii, and shows that it came from a Pokémon Center:

You can find the Idol plush, and other Cosplay Pikachu plushes on sites like eBay - look for sellers based in Japan to ensure you are getting the real deal!

To celebrate the release of Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, the Pokémon Company has set up a pop-up Pikachu Café in Shibuya!  This Café is only open until the end of February, so we won't get to visit it ><; but we'll be keeping our eyes peeled as a lot of Kawaii brands and characters have pop-up cafés and stores throughout the year.

Kumamiki on youtube visited the Pikachu Café and posted this super Kawaii video! There's a giant Idol Cosplay Pikachu there! <3

Catch you later Kawaiisters!! ^^
