This week's cosplay babe of the week was a toughy. She's associated with one of the most popular video game franchises in the history of gaming, but more for the merchandising and cartoons than being a gym leader in red and blue. The moment we see Misty, we instantly say "gotta catch 'em all".
So of course this week's cosplay babe of the week is the cute and adorable Misty from the world of Pokemon - the unimaginably popular video game franchise from Nintendo that started on the Game Boy and has graced every piece of Nintendo hardware since, as well as spawned countless pieces of collectible merchandise, cartoons, movies and more. Pokemon shows the influence that a game can have on the public and the staying power as well. Below is a little bio for all those unfamiliar with the character.
Mini Bio: Misty first appeared as a Gym Leader in the Pokémon video games and then several seasons of the Pokémon anime, The Electric Tale of Pikachu manga, the Ash & Pikachu manga, toys, books, and other media. In the video games Pokémon Red, Blue, Yellow, Pokémon FireRed, LeafGreen, Pokémon Gold, Silver, Crystal, and Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver, Misty is the Gym Leader of Cerulean City. She specializes in Water-type Pokémon. Misty, in her anime form, also appears as a trophy in Super Smash Bros. Melee and as a gym leader in Pokémon Puzzle League. Not too shabby huh? No on to the show!
