Gajinka Mareep by Skirtzzz Gajinka Mareep by Skirtzzz
It was a pleasant coincidence that Mareep is one of my favorite Poke'mon, and that my good pal ~SydkneeBean was already Ampharos.
I made this to accompany her and a friend, dressed as Flaaffy, to Portland Comicon this year- and decided it might as well get worn more than once- so I took it to Sakuracon with me just recently to sort of bop around in that Friday- and I'm happily surprised people took photos of me :0 It's great to have such nice ones of this!

No problem, you look awesome! I love the...horns (I guess that's what  they are?) and the tail too! How long did it take you to make them? They look very well done!

Thanks again, very much! :'D
Ah, It really didn't take too long- The horn/ears were just shaped foam covered with paper mache, then painted with acrylic and sealed- maybe a few hours to do all of it? (glue drying included! Hehe) The ball on the tail was made the same way! Oh, and the tail itself was just strips of fabric sewn together, stuck a wire in it and stuffed it- maybe an hour for that as well? It was a simple and fun project anyhow! :'D

That's so awesome! I would've thought the horns and tell would be pains in the butt to make!

Love, love, love the hair. Are there any tutorials for it?

Eep, thank you! :'0 <3
Ah, there aren't! I can try to tell you how I did it though!
I bought those extension wefts with the clips on them (ebay), I only needed one back of the head one, since those are fairly wide (though the set I bought had 8 different extension sizes, as far as I know they might all come like that). I tried to get a color that matched best I could (luckily platinum blonde is a popular extension color XD) then with the base wig (it was already a blonde with blue undertone, that I found on Ebay) I took the clip weft and attached it to the hairline vertically, and just messed with it, swirling it and whatnot until it looked alright, pinned it (trying to hide the pins best I could) and hair sprayed it so it would stay put :'3
I hope that helps!

Thanks for replying! That helps a ton. I know what to look for now. :) Definitely going to attempt a similar style with some cosplays I'm working on. (If you want, I can send you the end result when I'm done [as thanks]? Will be like a month from now though, haha :P)

How did you do the amazing tail and ears? o.o I would love to know what material the base and outside is
Reply
:iconskirtzzz:
Skirtzzz Featured By Owner Apr 16, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
Oh- the tail is just fabric strips sewn together and stuffed, with a wire spine to keep its shape- but the ball and ears are foam. I sanded the triangle foam down to make it rounded like the ears- then paper mache'd all three, and then painted them with acrylic, and used a gloss sealer spray to make them shiny :) Oh, and the ears are just attached to a headband.

You know, when I was a kid and I watched the first episode with a Mareep in it, said Mareep jumped right on top of pikachu, pinning him down. Imagine the look on my older sibling's face when his twelve year old brother shouts out "Oh no, don't fuck Pikachu!"

This story has no point and I just wasted everybody's time.
