The lights are on
While the costumes are simple enough, Team Rocket’s wild hairstyles make them somewhat difficult characters to pull off. Not for Russian cosplayers R&R, though, who took the time to style each wig to perfection. Check out the fantastic results below. Who: The CharacterJessie and James (Team Rocket)Why: The DecisionOur cosplay team is called R&R (first letters of our nicknames Ryoko and Rei) and that's why it was very symbolic and funny that Jessie and James have "R" on their costumes. And among all the series myself and Rei (aka Malro-doll) liked this couple most of all, so making a cosplay of them was our destiny. What: The ProcessActually, the costumes were the easiest part. The main problem was making the wigs. The materials are very standard and did not cost much. Before I started making Jessie's wig, I was practicing styling wigs for my friends for a month, who also took part in the Pokémon project with me. You can read all about the process in a tutorial I wrote. I hope it will help other cosplayers make it even better!Where and When: The DebutWe debuted our Team Rocket costumes in Russia at the convention called Asia-Breath 2010, where we had a large Pokémon cosplay team and made a performance. After that we had about 5 photoshoots and at the same time we were making a video. The result of this video you'll see very soon.Links: The CosplayerRyoko, and Rei (Malro-doll)

Jessie is looking pretty good i must admit.
Wow, jessie looks hot, haha.
These guys got it down to the core. I bet they're wowing everybody at the cons.
That's some crazyy hair.
It is ridiculous how they both look EXACTLY like their characters. Not just in outfit, but in body and face as well.
Wow, some people are just amazing. Peoples creativity never fails to impress me.
Holy Mother of god this is just way to funny i have seen some pretty cool stuff before but this is pretty tight i never thought someone would do something like this but human nature proves me wrong once more!
Wow! That's amazing. I'm not to into Pokemon cosplay as it's pretty generic to me. But dang, this is great. And Jesse's got some hot legs, too.
Dude... She's hot.
The one who is James reminds me of Tonks off of Harry Potter.
The costumes are good, but the girls sort of bother me. Perhaps it's because they're Russian, trying to play Japanese. They just look really out of place, and not like the characters at all. Also, the hair... While it is pretty close, it looks very stiff and unnatural.
I'll give them an A for effort, but I'd have to say a C for execution.
Oooh, very well done!
other than the pokeball reallyt relistic :)
Spot on the wigs are fab
Very well done!
