Project Run and Play:Week One Pokemon Ispired

pokemon26

I’m ecstatic to be here sharing my first look for Project Run and Play.  It’s truly a dream come true to be competing in Season 12.  The other competitors are so talented and I’m excited to join them for this ride.

The theme for week 1 is Pokemon Inspired.  Did you all catch Pokemon fever this summer? We got a tiny taste of it but it was quickly forgotten for days at the pool and afternoons with cousins.  When the theme was announced I knew I was in trouble!  After hitting the internet and talking with my kids we decided to go with the quintessential Pokemon icons- Pikachu and the all important Pokeball.

Pikachu is such a cute little character. That bright yellow was so fun to work with.  I used the Blake Pattern from Mingo and Grace for the base of our look.  It’s such a classic pattern that I turn to again and again.

I used this fabric from Joann’s.  It was pretty thin but the texture and color were just what I was looking for.  I lined everything and it worked wonderfully.  Joann’s had this amazing zipper that totally changed the direction I was going for on this look.  It matched the fabric perfectly and is reminiscent of Pikachu’s little stripes on its back.  I couldn’t pass it up!

I added a detachable collar using the free Tiffany Collar from Made For Mermaids.  Lace leggings (this fabric was a perfect match!) complete the outfit.  Such a bright, fun look that will get worn often!

My little Poke Ball was actually a real challenge for me.  I used the Sloane Skinny Jeans pattern from Violette Fields Threads for her super fun tuxedo stripe pants.  This is as close to sewing jeans as I’ve gotten and I think I may be ready to tackle the real deal soon…baby steps 😉

I used a white denim and black sequin fabric for the pants.  I topstitched my heart out and love the great finish it adds.  The top is a take on the Calla Lily Crop Top.  This shirt was almost scrapped after my original plan for it was a huge disaster.  Let’s just say this gabardine and I got really friendly with the seam ripper.  I’m grateful for my ever growing stash of trims because this ball fringe was absolutely meant to be!  I love little happy accidents!  Bonus points- Black and red are her new school colors so I know this top will get worn again and again!

I modified the top to use a facing since this fabric was so thick to begin with.  I added length and straightened out the hi-low a bit.  I love the boxiness of this top while still being fitted at the shoulders.  My little miss felt like such a rock star in this look!

We headed to downtown Salt Lake for this shoot.  It’s just a short fifteen minutes from us and I wish we went more often.  These pics were all taken in a one block radius!  Man, I love the city!

  1. Your girls have taken the cake in being awesome. These poses and those glasses! GAH! They’re so cute! I love your take on this theme. The racing stripe down those pants are fab. Like, I kinda want to do that to some of my own pants now. Gorgeous photos, gorgeous girls, gorgeous outfits. You nailed it. 🙂

  2. I am dying over these! makes! They look amazing and your mods are just perfect. And this thing about jeans keeps coming up. Maybe we need to put it on the books to tackle, a pair that has a faux fly to start??

  4. So Cute! My kids love Pikachu, so I was hoping you would do a Pikachu inspired outfit 🙂 Both outfits are great – your girls are definitely rock stars! I have several Pikachu inspired tops and dresses in my mind that I want to make my daughter, I just need to do it already!
