Tips for Buying EarthBound

January 6th, 2014 | EarthBound, Images

Slab Lab sent this in a little while back:

My friend and I cosplayed as Ness and Pokey to Ikki-Con recently. We hand-made pretty much all of it except for our shoes. We where hoping win in the cosplay contest, but didn’t. Still, our costumes seemed to get everyone at the convention pretty excited, so I thought maybe you would like to see them also.


Those are some really good costumes, and holy crap that Giygas is freaky! I can’t comprehend it!

Ahhh I saw these guys at the con! I didn’t get a chance to take their photo but I love seeing EB represented through cosplay and these two were really great!

@SuperStarman – maybe he is behind the blue glass in his machine? Pokey/Porky isn’t blue in Mother 3.

To jamesBond007: Pokey being blue at the end of Mother 2 was symbolic for how corrupt he had become because of Giygas. As for Mother 3, no one but Itoi himself knows why he isn’t blue.

I always assumed that Pokey being blue was simply due to the fact that it was a color pallete with low or no lighting. Not that he WAS blue, just that the lack of lighting cast that color upon him.

Which is why this cosplay just looks laughable to me.

It’s pretty common to see Pokey cosplayed blue or drawn blue, actually.

I dressed up as Ness for Comic-Con back in October. [The london one.] And the one before that. And the next one. And maybe forever. I’m not as obessed with EarthBound as I used to be [my eternal worship now goes to Lucky Star.] but SCROOGE IT.
