Digimon Character Fashions
You can begin to understand how television serials from your childhood can influence you in the present… when you’ve seen Digimon. Digimon is exactly the kind of anime series that can bring tons of laughter, excitement, and joy – you can be 8 or 18 or 28 and still be drawn to the series. The plot leaves you in suspense and the adventures are engaging to follow along. Just have a look at that Digimon logo! It can bring a wave of nostalgia (or you’re like pssh Pokemon was way better). One thing we can all appreciate, however, is how the whole concept of Digimon reflected Japan’s rapid technological developments during the 80s and 90s, which makes it an important series in addition to its entertainment value.
Facts to Know:
- Fox Kids was a Saturday morning and weekday afternoon programming block that aired from 1990 to 2002 on FOX. (television tropes & idioms) For the record, I saw the English dubbed Digimon (loved it!!!) The dubbers were so good at it.
- Digimon aired in 1999, then came Digimon Adventure 2, Digimon Tamers.
- Digivolution is a process used by Digimon; monsters that inhabit a parallel universe called the Digital World that spawned from Earth’s telecommunications network. Through Digivolution, a Digimon can develop into a more powerful being. (Digimon Wiki)
Angewomon is Gatomon’s natural Ultimate form, a very powerful digimon. She has a sort of ethereal quality about her, which is why I decided to do her outfit. Celestial Arrow and Heaven’s Charm are two of her powers.
The cutout on the white dress mirrors Angewomon’s white body suit, albeit less risqué. I imagine an angel will want to accessorize with a glam headband and a necklace with wings detailing. Then, the double belt will add a masculine touch to her look. Because you can miss Angewomon’s penchant for gold and majestic violet – let there be a gold cage bangle and a sweet violet purse to complete!

T.K. is the youngest kid in the original Digimon series. His favorite colors must have been apple green, lime green, and forest green because that’s pretty much what he wears day after day! Although he is babied by his older brother Matt, TK eventually learns to be more independent after encountering the many situations the Digi-destined kids had to face in the parallel universe.
Keep in mind that this fashion set is tailored for the ladies out there, so to channel that adorkable green T.K. look, we need something sporty yet chic. I swapped his jeweled helmet with a much more wearable (and you can take it off *gasp*) baseball cap. Slip on a pair of chocolate capris shorts and a bright velour jacket and accessorize simple – a gold necklace. Finish off this fun sporty look with wedge sneakers and neon green crossbody bag.

He is characterized as a happy-go-lucky, adventurous, but naïve character who wears a set of goggles. He is the older brother of Kari and can be very protective of her. As a brash person, he often acts on impulse without realizing the consequences of his actions. This leads him to moments of friction and guilt between his best friend and rival Matt, his oldest friend Sora, as well as his Digimon partner Agumon. He is the bearer of the Crest of Courage. (description credits to Digimon Wiki) Tai is the leader of the Digi-destined children, so it makes sense that he needs an outfit fit for a star.
Tai always has his signature goggles, but let’s grab a pair of sunglasses instead, for practicality’s sake. If you like, you can try to find ones in the same colors (blue and black) like Tai’s eyewear. His goggles mostly serve as a fashion statement – not to mention to tame Tai’s unstoppable hair (harry potter had unmanageable hair too!). Get some hairspray and spray that hair to achieve your desired volume. Place a royal blue headband to pair with the sunglasses. In the original Digimon Adventure, Tai never parts with his basic attire consisting of a blue T-shirt with a peek of a yellow shirt underneath. So find a yellow tank top and a blue blouse and viola. Don’t forget the cordoroy pants (or you can switch that out with a pair of skinnies), the star necklace, or the tennis shoes! Gloves are optional.
Lillymon is Palmon’s Ultimate form. She is a pixie type Digimon and look like a flower fairy. Her power is “Flower Canon”, which you can see from the bottom right picture (above).
