Come on, admit it. Who didn’t watch Pokemon when they were younger? (If you still do, I don’t want to hear it though). Anyway, today’s Cosplay entry reconnects us with the lovable and fiery Misty, courtesy of Venezuelan cosplayer Mappy!
In the anime incarnation, Misty is the youngest sister of three, and the leader of the Cerulean Gym. After accidentally fishing Ash and Pikachu out of a river whilst on search of more water pokemon, she ends up chasing Ash around after he borrows her bike to chase after a flock of Spearow and accidentally trashes it thanks to a Thundershock courtesy of Pikachu.
Now a constant companion and friend of Ash as he travels around on his journey, she does eventually retrieve her bike at the end of the Johto League Silver Conference, which prompts her return to the Cerulean Gym and more importantly to her duties as Gym Leader.
Although she possesses a fierce temper with a streak of stubbornness and little patience, it slowly gets revealed that in actual fact she is quite kind and sensible in her own way. More than capable of looking after herself, Misty also manages to remain a bit of a romantic at heart.
Mappy puts on the perfect little cosplay of everyone’s favourite big sister, though I wonder if she’s as afraid of bugs as the real Misty is!? :)
