Pikachu (Birthday) Makeup Tutorial!

A couple of week’s ago I went to a fancy dress party and the theme was ‘Favourite Childhood Characters’.  It really wasn’t a difficult decision at all for me who I adored growing up (apart from Count Duckula) it was of course Pikachu.  I have been obsessed with Pokemon since it hit my TV at the age of about 13, I have every episode of the original TV series on DVD and have completed both red, blue, yellow and diamond editions of the game on my multiple gameboys. 

Now, being as it’s my birthday today (I’m 25, so old!) I decided to upload my Pikachu tutorial in ode to my childhood.  If you are ever in need to look like a pokemon, look no further!



I really hope you enjoy this video.  Do subscribe to my YouTube channel (it’d make my day) and let me know what your favourite Pokemon was, maybe I’ll do their tutorial next!  For now, I’m back to birthday celebrations! 

Who was your favourite childhood character?

    My favourite childhood character would have to have been Leonardo from the Teenage Mutant Hero Turtles (yes I'm from a generation when in the UK the Turtles were Heroes not Ninjas).

    After that it would have been the rest of the Turtles (including Splinter the Rat), Count Duckula, Charlie Chalk (that was when I was really young) and Danger Mouse.

    I'm not sure how I would accomplish dressing up as any of those… but if I had to I suppose I'd come up with something

    Haha, Katie you're so sweet! I love this make up, it's so convincing! Pokemon was a huge obsession of mine as well, my brother and I used to have opposite editions and play them during our holidays. I can't find them though, anymore 🙁
    My favourite was Totodile, I think he was hilarious in the series and he always made me laugh so much, but I don't he would be a very model for a make up ^^
    And Happy Birthday!!

    Hahah such a cute costume! I adored Pikachu when I was younger, and my brother would kindly let me play it on his gameboy. I also owned a Pikachu "piggy"bank.
    Lovely costume x
