The elegant goldfish Pokémon looks ready for a battle in the ballroom with this gorgeous Goldeen gijinka cosplay. In the English versions of the Red and Blue games, the Pokédex likens Goldeen’s tailfins to a ballroom dress, inspiring the nickname Water Queen. This cosplay brings that concept to life with brilliant detailing and inspiring accessories.
Gijinka is the practice of giving human characteristics to a non-human animal or object. With their vibrant designs, Pokémon are an especially fantastic candidate for this style. This cosplay reinterprets the billowing fins and bright coloration as a gorgeous formal gown. The dangerous horn becomes a flower crown ornament and a detailed sabre sword.

New Face of EpicCosplay Submission!
Name: Jeanette from RPG Adventurers
EpicCosplay wig: Hera in Autumn Orange
Flower Crown was made by AlanaWaffles (Instagram). For this costume I knew I wanted something regal and majestic like and to have long flowing hair. I actually didn’t have to do much to style the hair at all. I just put some hair spray on so my curls and front of the wig so it would stay in place and keep its shape a little better. The wig literally came out of the bag and onto my head and looked amazing.

Goldeen Gijinka Cosplay Wig Style
As the cosplayer mentioned in the description above, the Hera wig from Epic Cosplay served as a great fit for this costume right from the bag. The gorgeous Hera comes pre-curled, reaching over 40” long in the back with bangs cut to 11” in the front.
The rich Autumn Orange color seems like a great fit for Goldeen.
