UK: Pokemon Summer Day Camp!
Pokemon Summer Day Camp
The Pokemon Summer Day Camp event in the UK was held this month. The event was held throughout the month of August at 20 different Toys "R" Us stores. At the event fans coud play Pokemon Battle Revolution on the Wii, play Pokemon Diamond and Pokemon Pearl, learn to trade and battle with trainers around the world, a free Mew download, a free Pokemon goodie bag, and face painting. Fans that dress up as a Pokemon character will also have a chance to win prizes. One first place winner is awarded per event and will get a Nintendo DS, a Cartoon Network Goodie Bag, and Pokemon Diamond and Pokemon Pearl, and two runners up get a Cartoon Network Racing game for the DS.
The Pokemon Summer Day Camp mini site has some pictures of the winners in the Pokemon costume contest. Looking through them all (only update to the 12th at this point) my favorite is the Regirock costume, the Groudon costume, and the Piplup costume. All three of those costumes came in first at their respective events (no surprise there).

I must say, that Regirock costume is very impressive. It looks like a baby Regirock, but it's a Regirock alright. The Groudon costume looks a little easier to wear (no need for poking out little holes to see where you're going). And although the Piplup costume looks more simpler than the those two, I liked the addition of the webbed feet to make the costume look complete (Piplup can not wear sneakers, it would ruin the look).
