How to Create a Pokemon Costume - Ash

Ash, the Pokemon-training star of the Pokemon television show, is a scrappy little guy with a big heart and a relatively easy outfit to pull together. Here's what you need, from top to bottom.

Use the gallery of Jesse pictures available on the Web as a reference - unless you're under 14, in which case he's probably burned onto your retinas already.

Procure a baseball cap that's red on the bill and back, and white on the front section. Add a "C" symbol appliqué to the front of the cap - or use a black fabric pen and just draw it on.

Style your hair so that it's dark and spiky, poking out to the sides under the cap.

Layer a simple blue vest over a black T-shirt and a white, collared, short-sleeved shirt.

Cuff the legs of a pair of faded blue jeans, and use a black belt.

Put on a pair of white sneakers.

Slide a pair of fingerless gloves over your hands. Ash has green ones, but good luck finding those. Any dark pair will do.

Buy a Pokemon ball toy, either online or at the local toy store.

Yell, "Pikachu - I choose you!" a lot.


To be fully accessorized, you may want to pick up a large stuffed version of Ash's pal Pikachu.
