Professor Willow Cosplay Costumes
Before you hand out any starter Pokemon to new trainers, you’ll first need the look of a professor, specifically Professor Willow. Well, Professor Willow usually just ends up trading candy for Pokemon on the popular app, Pokemon Go, but we like to think that he’s probably given out starter Pokemon sometime in his life. Try to find a friend to cosplay a trainer alongside you but if you can’t find any, you can always just grab a stuffed Pokemon doll and use that for your group cosplay!
To get the look of Professor Willow, you’ll need a short layered white wig, an Elite barrier jacket, safety glasses, twill lab coat, tight compression pants, cycling shorts, a yoga mat, a Pokeball toy, an LED watch and finally a pair of black and green crocs. Don’t forget to send in pictures of your awesome cosplay so we can feature it!
About Professor Willow
If you’ve never played Pokemon Go, you may not exactly recognize Professor Willow as he only appears in the mobile phone game. He will be the one to hand over your first Pokeballs in order to capture the Pokemon you see in surrounding areas around you. You can also trade him Pokemon that you’re not interested in or ones you may have duplicate of and receive candy from him. What does this candy do exactly? It’s a candy that you can use to help level up your Pokemon and if you get certain candies that pertain to a specific Pokemon, you can evolve them if you get enough of their type.
Professor Willow doesn’t work alone as it may look at first. He actually has three assistants that are the leaders of three different teams known as Team Instinct, Team Mystic, and Team Valor. These three teams are the ones you can choose from when you begin the game and start your adventure.
