Banette Pokemon hoodie cosplay by Bahzi Banette Pokemon hoodie cosplay by Bahzi
COMMISSIONS ARE CLOSED.  This means, no, I won't make you one of these, not now or ever.  Deal with it.

I made this hoodie last summer as my part of an art trade with :iconrobo-shark: , but I didn't manage to get any pictures of it before sending it off. Robo-Shark was awesome enough to snap some pictures of it, so I can post it here. Many, many thanks to him for that! <3

The giant zipper is probably my favorite part of this hoodie. I got it from orgxiii.org, a site that sells giant plastic zippers used for Kingdom Hearts Organization 13 coats. It was very heavy, but installed pretty easily, probably because the fleece is a very heavy fabric. I made the zipper pull from plastic, it snaps off for washing.

The 'claws' flip back so the wearer can still use their hands. The hood 'point' is lightly stuffed and seemed to not pull the hood back too much, and I like how it came out.

It's made from anti-pill fleece, like all my hoodies, and this one had a hood drawstring at Jay's request. I really liked making one without the embroidery/eyes, where the focus was on another aspect for once than just the hood, in this case, the gigantic zipper. XD

If I thought it would do any good, I'd ask for one myself. This is probably the greatest hoodie that I've seen in the history of hoodies. Banette is one of my top favorite ghost Pokemon of all time, and I where hoodies whenever I can, so this would definitely be my top hoodie, and I'd wear it everyday. Excellent work.

Just wondering, what would it cost to have a custom hoodie made?

Banette is my favorite Pokémon, I'd pay to have one of those. Amazon does not have them at all.

Thank you, but unfortunately even if I were to do commissions in the future, designs made for friends like this one are one of a kind and I won't re-make them.  I also don't share patterns, when there is a pattern, that is.   Much of the time I just draw directly on the fabric.

Do you think you could give me a pattern of what you did with what you used to make this jacket so that I would be able to make my own with some modifications? Please and thank you.

I don't see myself ever accepting commissions again, my work schedule (and soon to be school schedule) just doesn't allow time for it, but even if I did, the Banette design is one I wouldn't remake as this one was for a friend and one of a kind. ^^;

Well thank you! :iconinvader-gir: still takes hoodie commissions and does excellent work, I actually borrowed the style I made my hoodies in from her! She's quite busy and the wait may be until winter at this point, but she's fantastic. Here's her stuff: [link]

How does the hood disconnect?

Bahzi Featured By Owner Jul 17, 2011
It doesn't, the bottom picture was an in progress shot before it was attached! If I had made one with a detachable hood, I would have used a zipper or colored snaps.
