replica and design
This is Gloom from the Gijinka drawings of Pokemon. I jumped on the bandwagon in 2008 and made this on a whim for the Spring Gathering. It was an easy, silly costume, but as usual I made it harder than it needed to be. I chose a woven cotton in an attempt to give the skirt a little body, but didn't flare out gorgeously like I imagined; it just looked kind of lumpy. I should have just used a knit. Anyway, it's okay because I LOVE MY COCONUT HAT.
