Ash Ketchum from Pokemon
Event(s): Mechacon 2011 | Halloween 2012
This costume went through a lot of changes over time, but I’ve decided to keep them all classified as just one Ash Ketchum costume. I wore this a lot, not just for events but just day to day things as well. I’d be lying if I told you I wasn’t wearing it in my driver’s license photo. (My friend’s mom yelled at me at the last minute to take off the vest, haha) And, because I have such great luck, my license renewed with the same photo so I am just stuck being Ash forever.
The only thing that was ever constant with this costume was the vest. I wore it with different black shirts, swimsuit tops, jeans, skirts, and several different Ash hats.
The vest itself belonged to one of my friends at the time when he was a kid and just happened to fit me, so he let me have it. I believe his mom had made it for him for Halloween one year. There’s really not much more to tell about this costume than that.
