How To Dress Like Espeon

Which is your favorite Eevee evolution? For many Pokemon fans, Espeon (otherwise known as the Sun Pokemon) is their go-to evolution. It’s sleek, it’s elegant, and those psychic abilities feel particularly fitting for a feline-type creature.

Dressing like Espeon is also incredibly easy. Also, perfect if purple just so happens to be your favorite color! From furry cat ears to red face gems, we show you everything you need to make your own Espeon outfit.


Espeon (Pokemon) DIY costume guide

1. SKIRT – We started our with a flowy purple midi skirt for an elegant and mystical look.

2. CROP TOP – Pair that with a matching crop top or shirt of your choosing.

3. GLOVES – These lacey bridal gloves felt like the perfect addition, again for that slightly psychic aesthetic.

4. CAT EARS – If you don’t feel like making your own Espeon ears then this furry cat ear headband is an ideal substitution.

5. FOOTWEAR – The choice of shoes is up to you. We went for a vintage-style chunky Lolita heel but any purple heels or flats will work just fine.

6. GEMS – One of the most distinguishing features of this Espeon cosplay is the large red gem in the middle of its forehead. For this, we went for a large red face gem which we then framed with smaller gems.

7. WIG – Finally, a purple wig really is a must for this look if you don’t feel like dying your hair. And, just like that, your elegant Espeon outfit is ready!



Espeon #196 was first introduced in the second generation of Pokemon games (Gold and Silver) as a Psychic-type Eevee evolution.

Eevee can become Espeon (The Sun Pokemon) when it has high friendship and evolves during the day. If Eevee evolves after the sun sets then it will become Umbreon (The Moon Pokemon).

Espeon is a highly intelligent and loyal Pokemon regarded for its graceful movements and keen sense of perception.
