Hi, all you dudes and dudines!
Since I am effin' excited for Pokemon X and Y and really love the Eeveelutions, I decided to start my first long-time project with a FEMALE sylveon (and yes, I'll try to do a male Version sooner or later. Deal with it :3)
I've seen many Sylveon Gijinkas out there already, but nearly all of them were in the goth-lolita-type of costume. Since my project focuses on something that would be easy to cosplay AND being a little bit different from the other stuff (haha...different...), I decided to go for a hippie-like look.
Regarding the three different color Versions, here are some notes:
Version 1 was my original design. I threw in some additional colors (pale browns and yellows).
Version 2 sticks closer to the original Pokémon, however, I made the ribbon color cream instead of just plain white because it would've looked kinda flat and boring, and we all know that I hate flat and boring stuff. This time, the leggins are white with a light pink texture and the Tattoos and sash are light blue to give a bit of an accent.
Version 3 is essentially just a tweaked Version 1, this time with tanned Skin.
The big writing in the background is supposed to say "Feelinara", which is Sylveon's german name.
--The Gijinka Project was started as a design practice and Inspiration for maybe desperate last-minute cosplays, a thing that I suffer from quite often.--
