How To Dress Like Vaporeon

What happens when you befriend Eevee while the Pokemon is holding a Water Stone? You get one of the most unique and eye-catching Eevee evolutions of all time, that’s what!

Vaporeon is a hugely popular look within the cosplay and festival community and with good reason: This is personally one of our favorite Pokemon outfits of all time. From an ephemeral, water-inspired skirt to the best tail and headband you could hope to find, this is everything you need to dress like Vaporeon.


Vaporeon (Pokemon) DIY costume guide

1. CROP TOP – Going with a beachy aesthetic felt like a no-brainer for this Vaporeon costume. To that end, we started with a cute strapless cami top with a silky smooth feel.

2. VAPOREON COSPLAY SET – If you don’t feel like making your own props from scratch then we highly recommend this accessory set from Etsy. Complete with tail, ears headband, and collar.

3. WIG – Seriously, how stunning is this wavy blue cosplay wig? We can’t help but think of waves brushing against sand when we look at it!

4. SKIRT – Keeping with the ocean theme, this layered midi tutu has a beautiful water and ephemeral quality.

5. NECKLACE – If you would prefer something a little more subtle than the ruffled collar (perhaps for a rave or festival?) then this shell necklace is a great alternative.

6. EARRINGS – Again, if those Vaporeon ears are not your style, then these Elf earrings are another stunning option.

7. GEMS – For a festival-appropriate look, these blue face gems are a great addition to this Vaporeon costume.

8. GLOVES – Finally, add a pair of fingerless silk gloves and your outfit is ready!


Vaporeon #134 first appeared in the first generation of Pokemon games as Eevee’s Water-type evolution. To get a Vaporeon, Eevee must be holding a Water Stone while evolving.

Resembling a quadrupedal creature with sleek bluish fur, fin-like ears and a ruffled collar around its neck, Vaporeon, like many Water-type Pokemon, has something of a regal quality about it. 

Vaporeon is often depicted as a calm and graceful Pokemon who, like all of Eevee’s evolutions, shows an unwavering loyalty to its Pokemon trainer.
