So my son went to his sports carnival this year, dressed as Pikachu (he could wear anything yellow and chose his onesie!) Thanks to the craze around Pokemon Go. he was regularly chased down and tackled. He whinged, but I think he secretly enjoyed all the attention.
These Pikachus were my first attempt. His ears are a bit tricky, because they need to appear ‘soft’ so I had to dip quickly, and support the ears somewhat till the chocolate dried. I think they did fall into a natural position. The face is handpainted using edible paint imported from the US.
