YOSHIDA ISLAND, Japan — It’s a little-known fact that Yoshi has been making dinosaur crafts in Japan for more than a decade.
The Japanese pop culture icon even created a special dinosaur-themed costume for the upcoming Pokémon movie, and it’s become a hit among the Japanese public.
But Yoshi’s latest creation is even more surprising.
Yoshi has designed a custom dinosaur-shaped craft for Mario, the Japanese game character, to craft for him.
The craft was created in his family’s home in the country’s northeastern city of Yushu.
“I thought, ‘I would like to craft something for Mario,'” Yoshi said.
“The idea was that I could make something for him that I would be able to use to craft other things.”
Yoshi said he originally envisioned a costume for Mario’s character, but his father, a chef, asked him to take a stab at making a costume based on his own favorite animal.
Yoshi made the costume using a custom skeleton and his family dog, the Toxi, as models.
The Toxis were one of Yoshi’s earliest childhood favorites.
Yoshi said his family has long been obsessed with the animal, and the two began spending time together and making dinosaur costumes in elementary school.
Yoshi’s father had a custom “dragon hat” that he made for his son, which he kept on the mantle for years.
“He wore it with the dinosaur hat on, and we would play with the dog,” Yoshi said of his father.
“We would play and it would be like a big game.”
Yoshi was inspired to make the costume after seeing the popular Japanese animation series “Dragon Ball Z” on TV.
The series features a group of kids, most of whom are dinosaurs, who are battling evil evil dinosaurs.
In Yoshi’s “Dragon Hat” costume, the dinosaur costume is an armor that protects a dinosaur’s neck, arms, tail and legs.
It features a dragon skull on the neck.
Yoshi is also wearing the costume to create a face that looks like a dragon, and a large dragon skull above his head.
Yoshi added a dragon head that was on the head of a chicken.
“Dragon hats are a symbol of strength,” Yoshi explained.
“They have an impact on people.”
In the “Dragon Bands” video game, a group is formed to fight evil dinosaurs and fight against evil evil dragons.
Yoshi also created a dinosaur-inspired costume for his favorite character in the “Pokémon” franchise, Pikachu.
He used the costume in a number of episodes of the show, including the “Dino Battle” episode, “Dragon Battle,” and “Pokémon: Showdown at the Lumiose City.”
Yoshi and his father also made a dinosaur costume for their son, Pikachu, as part of the “Budda’s Theme” episode of the Pokémon series.
Yoshi described the Pikachu costume as the best Pikachu costume he has ever made.
“It’s a very special one,” he said.
Yoshi and the dinosaur “Dragon Band” episode were filmed in Yoshi’s home, but he said he was inspired by the animation series when making the “Dragons of Japan” costume.
Yoshi was also inspired to create his own dinosaur-like design for “Pokémon Battle.”
Yoshi explained that his family had been making “Dragon Bass” dinosaurs for years and he had wanted to make a dragon-like character to wear during his Pokémon battle scenes.
“That was one of the first designs I ever made,” he explained.
Yoshi spent the next few years working on his costume, which is modeled after the “dragon” hairstyle that he and his grandfather used in the animated series.
“There are different dragons that you can see in the show and in the anime, and I wanted to represent that,” Yoshi added.
“When I was a kid, I didn’t know anything about dinosaurs.
My dad was a chef and he said, ‘You have to get an idea of how the world looks like when you’re a kid.'”
Yoshi was born in Miyagi Prefecture, Japan, but was raised in Tokyo and attended the Yoyogi University in Osaka, where he majored in Japanese literature and music studies.
He has since become a celebrated figure in Japan and abroad, having made numerous appearances in American and European film and television.
He was named one of Time magazine’s 100 most influential people of the 20th century.
His father, who was also a chef for many years, also designed Yoshi’s costume and Yoshi’s hair style, and they even collaborated on a series of “Dragon Dance” videos.
“Dad was a very big inspiration for me, and so was my father,” Yoshi recalled.
“My father always said that we should never lose sight of our roots, but I have always tried to keep them close.
It’s not just the clothes, but the roots that are important.”
Yoshi is the third child of Yoshi Imamiya, a Japanese food designer and entrepreneur, and Yoshiko Imamiya.
