Sword & Shield’s Sobble brought to life

Every game in the popular RPG series begins with the player having to choose their starter Pokemon. In Sword & Shield trainers are offered a choice between Grookey, Scorbunny, and Sobble.


Prolific cosplayer Isabel ‘Luxlo‘ chose the Water-type character to dress up as, and shared her jaw-dropping take on social media. Using a blue wig and blue dress, she transformed into the timid frog.

The talented artist collaborated with photographer ‘dreamlifestylephotography‘ who captured her posing as the Pokemon. Bringing the whole costume together, she creatively recreated his curly blue tail, and his signature yellow and blue fin.

This isn’t the first time Isabel has taken on the Nintendo franchise either, as she has a history of creatively bringing Pokemon to reality. In April 2019, she upload her Vaporeon cosplay, giving life to Eevee’s water evolution.

Luxlo has built up a huge audience on her Instagram account with over 507k followers as of the time of writing. The skilled artist shares her insanely detailed costumes of popular anime and video game characters.
