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, 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

Can I go back in time and commission you?

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

Omg I truly hope you'll open up commissions again one day. This is seriously perfect!! If not commisionss, at LEAST a sewing pattern so I could try my hands at making this amazing thing

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.
