Snorlax dress by bethanyagogo Snorlax dress by bethanyagogo
My friend had a Pokemon-themed birthday party and wanted us all to dress up... so I made a Snorlax bubble-dress :D

I made the dress out of fabric from two XXXL t-shirts [one in dark teal and one in tan]. I screenprinted eyes and mouth, appliqued the tan pieces onto the teal fabric, and sewed it into a strapless bubble-hemmed dress. Unfortunately, I do not have a tutorial available online, however I have provided some extra tips as to how I made the dress within the comments below, so feel free to check 'em out :)

I made a matching bow for the ears and an Ultra Ball brooch, which I ended up pinning onto a cuff bracelet instead of onto the dress itself.

... my pink recorder served as a Poke-flute, however, I think that I'd like to make a Poke-flute necklace to match this ensemble in the future <3

Featured on Kotaku, ComicsAlliance, GamesRadar, The Daily What, Lookbook, and of course, Deviantart's Weekly Feature: Artisan Crafts. Thanks for the kind words, everyone :D

Check out this adorable illustration, created by :iconabblecrumble: that was inspired by my Snorlax dress :D
