Let’s first look at Ash’s origins before we move on to the costume

If you didn’t know, Ash is actually only ten years old! As hard as it is to believe, this ten-year-old kid has taken the Pokemon world by storm. On his tenth birthday, Ash overslept and rushed to Professor Oak’s laboratory in hopes of still receiving a Squirtle, Bulbasaur, and Charmander but ended up with a Pikachu, since he arrived so late, this was the only starter left for him to take.  

It was rough at first since Pikachu didn’t want to obey Ash and being new to the experience, Ash didn’t know how to train Pikachu properly. It wasn’t until his recklessness got Pikachu into a heap of trouble did Ash step up to save him and in return, Pikachu did the same.

This was the start of their beautiful friendship and gave the young Pokemon Trainer some clarity about what it meant to train in the first place. Making bonds with the pokemon that he caught was important and made them better fighters.

So much for the background, which you need to know before you put on a costume. Because not only the clothes are important for a cosplay look, but also how you wear them.

So what do you need in order to recreate this Pokemons Trainer look?
