Cubone is one of the coolest looking Pokémon of all, and cosplayer Kristin Killtastic translated the little monsters look to a warrior-like costume. She fashioned a two piece barbarian/Viking sort of style for the character with faux fur, bones, and armor. It’s a fun version of the little creature. And it’s not the first time Kristin has made a Cubone costume. You can see the complete costume just below (I like the Poké Ball cross and bones on the top) but keep scrolling to see a breastplate design for a different Cubone — it’s longer and made what looks like EVA foam. I like seeing how the concept changed over time. The Cubone costume 1.0 is also below.
