Trainer Hat

10-hatHappy Halloween! I am happy to report that the Pokemon Trainer costume is complete! Unfortunately, a picture of the whole look put together will have to wait until tomorrow, because even as we speak, parts of the costume are still drying.

You see, one of the accessories I still needed was a hat. I stumbled across a blank baseball cap on clearance for $2…. unfortunately, I spent about 5 times that on fabric paint (I opted for Tulip’s Soft Fabric paints). I painted this one up to look just like the one my character wears in the game. While I had my brushes out, I also painted up a tennis ball to look like a Pokeball (not pictured). The end result is a bit more rough as I discovered that painting the fuzz is a lot trickier than what it seems.
