Ash Ketchum Isshu Jacket by moonymonster Ash Ketchum Isshu Jacket by moonymonster
I know Isshu has a new English name now for some reason, but I can't remember what it is and I don't feel like looking it up.

Anyway, here is the Ash Ketchum Isshu jacket that I made by myself (except that I made it in my sewing class, so I made it by myself with my teacher, and drove her completely mad). And oh my god curves. After this jacket I'm officially the curved seam and flatfell seam QUEEN. Seriously. Ash's mom is insane for designing something like this. (And no one BUT her would dress him in something like this.)

Also, three different people who'd never seen his costume before or knew he'd switched them asked me if it was a Pokemon costume during its construction, because it 'looked Pokemon'. I thought that was rather funny, actually.

Also also, NEVER EVER USE COTTON WITH A PATTERN DESIGNED FOR FLEECE. You will get headaches, you will stare at the pattern in bafflement, and you will wonder whatever possessed you to make a jacket with inset sleeves, a centered zipper, ribbing, a bloody hood, different colored panels, pockets, AND BLOODY BLACK SQUIGGLY LINE THINGS.

Delia Ketchum, if I ever meet you in a dark alley, we will have words.


Note 7/26/12: I am not currently taking commissions on this jacket. If you have ideas for other costumes, you can contact me.

Hi do you do commissions now?

I do, but I request that I don't have a time limit on them. I'm in school full time and find it difficult to make any deadlines but my classes XD But I can make this for you.

Thank you ^^ I don't remember the pattern. You'll just have to go looking XD And be prepared to alter it of course. There are no patterns that come with curved separate panels like Ash's.

Thanks, replying. I do wonder which ash ketchum outfit would be easy to do since I do wanna cosplay ash on the 3rd day of the con.

I can't answer that because I don't know your sewing skills or when your con is. There are also many versions of Ash beyond the classic outfits. Go on Bulbapedia and look up some of his other outfits--for example, I'm wearing his vacation outfit to ALA this year. Some of them can be made very easily, like the work-out outfits.

I've heard Hoenn is relatively easy because you can alter an existing hoodie--I met a cosplayer that took two hoodies, cut them up, and stitched them back together--which is always good for a newbie, and like I said checking out the alternate outfits is a good idea too. This jacket is actually one of the more complicated ones ^^; I suppose you could do the same thing with cutting one up and sewing it to another one, but it's up to you. Classic is something people always like, and depending on how you approach it you might be able to do that too. I don't know if you're any good at putting in sleeves, and all of these costumes except Sinnoh require sleeves. You're not actually telling me anything. (However, like I said, I saw someone do a Hoenn jacket by making it a vest and wearing a black t-shirt under it.)

Honestly? Find a pattern you think you can do, find an Ash costume that fits it. He's got 20-30 alternate costumes at this point, along with the first main 4 that you always see at cons. I personally wouldn't recommend doing a first season costume because EVERYONE does first season--if you're going to do first season, find a way to make it different, like the Rule 63 I met at ALA last year that wandered around with a sign that said 'Misty Made Me Do This'. It's hard to make classic Ash stand out. That's why the next generations and the alternate outfits are more fun ^^
