Cosplayer Ashley Kinder, also known as Wicked System Cosplay, took Pokémon to a whole new level with her elegant take on Bulbasaur. I never tire of seeing how creative cosplayers get with their Pokémon designs. She fashioned a dress in Bulbasaur’s blue-green hue and painted spots onto the gown. She had to redo the bulb portion of her Bulbasaur dress to make it just right. She used an umbrella for the bulb and cut the fabric into shape to get the triangles to layer properly. You can see a photo of that process below.
