Stalk the night with this sleek and easy-to-make Umbreon Cosplay idea

How To Dress Like Umbreon

What happens when you pair Eevee with a night owl trainer? You get one of the sleekest-looking Pokemon of all time that’s what! Umbreon, otherwise known as the Moonlight Pokemon (now that’s a cool nickname), is one of Eevee’s most popular evolutions.

Making your own DIY Umbreon cosplay could not be simpler. With little more than a black bodysuit and some yellow fabric paint, we show you exactly how to dress like Umbreon for your next costume party or Comic-con event.


Umbreon (Pokemon) DIY costume guide

1. EARS – We wanted to make a super quick and easy Umbreon that would be ideal for a last-minute costume party. So we started with a simple pair of bunny ears that can be picked up anywhere (we will be painting them soon).

2. BODYSUIT – Next, add a black full-bodysuit. Alternatively, a black tee and trousers or a skirt (maybe with some cute black tube socks?) would also work perfectly well.

3. FABRIC PAINT – You will need quality fabric paint (ideally one that works on synthetic and natural fibers) in a bright yellow. Paint two rings around the ears and a couple of circles on your legs. 

4. FOOTWEAR – Shoes are dealers choice. We went for a sexy pair of black platform heels for our Umbreon costume but heels or flats are also fine.

5. GLOVES – We then added a pair of silky soft black gloves and we are now dressed head-to-toe in black!

6. HAIR TIE – A yellow hair tie or scrunchie is a cute finishing touch that just rounds this whole look off nicely.



Umbreon was first introduced in the second generation of Pokemon Games (Gold and Silver) as #197 in the Pokedex. It is a Dark-type Pokemon that evolves from Eevee once it is happy enough to evolve and provided it is nighttime:

Night: Umbreon; Daytime: Espeon.

Umbreon is referred to as the “Moonlight Pokemon” and is known for its sneaky and often deceptive moves, as well as its solid defensive capabilities.
