This year I really wanted to go as a Pokemon trainer.
I bought a plain white hat and painted the brim and pokeball with some fabric paint. I used some black fabric and whipped up a quick vest using one of my favorite shirts as a pattern. The arm cuffs were fairly simple. I used some left over pink fabric from the bag and black fabric from the vest and put them together. I'm pretty happy with how everything turned out!
I had some fabric and I designed and created a bag template and then sewed myself up a bag. The gym badges are made with some air drying clay, lots of different paint colors and some hot glue and pins for the backs.
