A Pokemon cosplayer made waves on Instagram after sharing her adorable take on Sun & Moon’s Mimikyu. The talented artist brought the disguised Ghost-type to life with her stunning outfit. 

The Pokemon franchise whisked players away to the tropical region of Alola for its 2016 titles Sun & Moon. Despite its sunny and vibrant setting, the RPG also introduced the tragic Ghost monster Mimikyu.

Despite its sad backstory, fans over the years have fallen in love with the creature. A cosplayer celebrated the beloved ‘mon on Instagram with her creative outfit that will be sure to warm hearts.

Cosplayer Marissa ‘marissaemma‘ Dattoli brought the character to life when she shared her epic costume of the Gen VII Pokemon. The artist adorably wore a hoodie re-creation of Ghost’s cloth sack, which turns into a buttoned up coat that drapes over her body.

Throughout the series, viewers have only gotten a small glimpse of the character’s shadowy-looking form that creeps out from underneath its Pikachu costume. To represent this, Marissa cleverly wore a black tutu which feathers out across her legs.

While there is not a lot known about its origins, tales suggest that anyone who stares at the ‘mon’s true form under its cloth sack will come down with a sickness or even die. Despite its dark background, fans of the RPG have come to sympathize with its loneliness. Marissaemma brings a perfect twist to the monster which many have come to love.

The Pokemon franchise entered its eighth generation three years after the release of Sun & Moon. While the Nintendo Switch title takes place in Galar, Game Freak has brought Mimikyu over to the new region, which has been a hit with the community.
